Oh man…. many media outlets are reporting the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg (RBG). This is an election year. The last time something similar happened, the Republicans considered the election as a “referendum” for the voters to decide on who to be president and thus the power to nominate the replacement. Remember Merrick Garland? Ya… he was nominated by Obama but the McConnell’s Senate cock block rule all but eliminated any chance of confirming a new judge. To say this tactic it’s not political is a total farce since McConnell has admitted the rule was for political expediency.
With RBG’s death, the Dems HAVE TO take the same stance as the Reps did. The Dems need to remind the American public of the past and the political expediency the Reps did. And depending on the response, tie it to the fact that the Reps don’t care about the people or principles… just political expediency. I don’t think McConnell’s Senate will sit aside though. If anything, McConnell will try to force the issue to nominate and confirm a judge. The American people need to start holding these Senators responsible for their (lack of) convictions. “If you stand for nothing, what’ll you fall for“
Oh… apparently the political wheels are moving already according to this article. How will this play out…
