    This is the exact reason why libertarians will never win, anything, ever.

    Purity is also the same reason why BLM is hurting Democrats in the polls. They started off with extremely high approvals but couldn't exercise any self-control and made it about marxist ideology, joined with ANTIFA and destroyed their own movement. Libertarians shoot themselves in the foot in the same way, every single time.

    Apparently the same so called libertarians are so pure in their beliefs that they also support the neocons in their full on 4 year war against someone who is consistently against war, MIC, deep state, in rhetoric and action

    Yeaaaa but they're not good enough so lets just attack them and complain about RBG being gone, seems like the better plan.

    Cruz most likely wants to run for president again, so I don't see him being picked as Trump nominee.

    Yeah. Every Democrat also is. No shortage of Democrat quotes talking about what a miscarriage it is to not confirm Garland. Same people don't want an appointment for Ginsberg.

    Elections have consequences. Not confirming a Ginsberg replacement is probably more ridiculous than not confirming Garland. Ginsberg had no business being on the Supreme Court the last few years because of her declining physical and mental health. She shouldn't be rewarded for her bad behavior in not retiring. She thought Hillary was a lock to win. She made a bad bet and lost. Time for Trump to confirm someone.

    Why are there still people who don't understand the logic? Obama and Senate were different parties during the election year. This time its the same party. Thats the entire point of why a president chooses to nominate and the senate can choose to confirm or not.

    No one's disputing the Senate's authority to confirm. I was merely pointing out the gross hypocrisy of McConnell and other Trump enablers. McConnell's statements in 2016 weren't based on the fact that the presidency and senate were of different parties -- he and other GOP Senators argued that the voters should have a say.

    McConnell: "The American people are perfectly capable of having their say on this issue, so let's give them a voice. Let's let the American people decide. The Senate will appropriately revisit the matter when it considers the qualifications of the nominee the next president nominates, whoever that might be."

    Grassley: "A majority of the Senate has decided to fulfill its constitutional role of advice and consent by withholding support for the nomination during a presidential election year, with millions of votes having been cast in highly charged contests. As Vice President Biden previously said, it's a political cauldron to avoid."

    Cornyn: "At this critical juncture in our nation's history, Texans and the American people deserve to have a say in the selection of the next lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. The only way to empower the American people and ensure they have a voice is for the next President to make the nomination to fill this vacancy."[quote]

    Cornyn also said the following on the Senate floor: "It’s only a matter of fundamental fairness to apply the same rules to the same situation, no matter who’s in the majority or who’s in the minority,” Cornyn argued on the Senate floor on March 17, 2016.

    Then there's Lindsey Graham, arguably the biggest hypocrite, who said in 2016, "I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination."

    The only reason the voters were an issue is because they had not made their will clearly known in past elections, they had elected a leftist POTUS and a right wing Senate.

    The voters made their will clear in this cycle by giving us a Republican POTUS and a Republican Senate to handle any vacancies that occurred in this period.

    There is no hypocrisy.

    Of course there is. Read again what Cornyn and Graham said, especially Graham, who described exactly the situation we're currently in.

    EM.

    LOL

    Left's attacks on cuban-american political opponents have been so harsh that some might not be even fit to be printed in history books.

    In this recent example, both honorable figures are minorities and guy depicted in blue suit is Cuban American :


    Another Cuban American Rafael Ted Cruz faced horrific attacks during 2016 election primary season from his political opponent (even if not hardcore Left). Many these days seem to think everything is fair in love, war and politics.
    Or perhaps it's been always the case, left's attacks on another minority SCOTUS pick Clarence Thomas probably also cannot be repeated in history books.
