Hell even the Lincoln Project backed off to allow a conservative to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg to get replaced.
    Damn, the betting odds probably be changing like crazy when events like this happen.

    Trump's current moneyline to win re-election is +110. It was -110 about a month ago and +130 about a month previous to that. Honestly, I wish I had placed a bet on him at +130, because I doubt the line is going to be that good again. Missed opportunity.

    Shoulda been way below -130 in january, and way above +130 before RBG death.

    Let's hope the line goes way above +130 again because I'm ready to go with about $5k that says Trump wins.

    Senator Todd Young released the following statement upon the news that President Donald Trump will nominate Notre Dame Law School Professor Amy Coney Barrett to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.


    ďI could not be more pleased with the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the federal bench. During the vetting process, I had the chance to interview Mrs. Barrett and expressed to the White House my belief that she would be a home run pick. Iím glad the President views her with as much regard as I do. With this selection, President Trump continues to demonstrate a knack for nominating individuals to the federal bench who will faithfully interpret the Constitution of the United States. Mrs. Barrettís qualifications should make for a swift, bipartisan confirmation process.Ē


    no doubt the other side is digging up whatever dirt they can find.

    where did you get this?

    multiple people were less.

    Justice Stevens was confirmed 19 days after his nomination, by a unanimous vote.

    Recently John Roberts was confirmed as Chief Justice only 24 days after being named as the nominee
    Sandra Day OíConnor was 33 days.

    Iíve only read a little about her. Doesnít seem that bad so far.

    But Gorsuch didnít seem bad and now heís ruled in favor of corporations over and over again, killing unions.

    And yeah, Iím liberal and a conservative justice is being appointed. Of course Iíll complain. Why wouldnít I? You should be able relate. Every post is an aggressive rant. I donít know the last even keeled conversation Iíve seen you have.

    From what Iíve read, she hasnít been vetted by their team the same way as others on the list and it could slow the process a bit. She did have a hearing just a few years ago before her Appeals Court appointment so itís not like sheís off the street of course.

    Itíll be the same questioning again. How her catholic faith plays into decisions. All in all, this should be cleaner than Kavanaugh, but the fight will be about process, not the person.

    RBG got 96 votes in her appointment.

    Can you imagine that kind of consensus today on any appointment by any president?

    And she was extremely qualified. The assumption is that whomever Trump will appoint will also be. But we've really only got Bart O'Kavanaugh, drunk advocate, to judge the qualifications of his nominees against. So yea, that's not a good track record. We still don't know who paid off Bart's massive credit card debt off. Between $60,000 and $200,000 of credit card debt just vanished from Bart's ledger...
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.
    _____

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    She will absolutely be vetted more.

    Well Gorsuch was a good pick. I can argue all day about things I donít like about his rulings, but ultimately he was well approved by the ABA. The partisan vote (although Gorsuch got a few Dem votes) was more about a statement of process than the person. And thatís what weíre about to see again I assume.


    Kavanaugh was just a train wreck from beginning to end. Hard right nominee. 80+ ethics complaints and vocal opposition by legal organizations. I think even the aba pulled support at one point.

    Dems certainly played a partisan game but it overshadowed actual legit issues with him. And so the GOP stuck to the fight for the sake of fighting and knowing they could win in the senate.

    In any normal political climate, the president would have withdrawn the nomination and put someone else out there knowing theyíll get a conservative appointment one way or another, but at least clear the issue of an unethical background.
