    The main problem is that we don't have the strong majority of truer GOP in the Senate.
    a few Renegades will try to ruin it. don't get in the mode of blaming the rest of GOP.

    I think the President should up his 3 dimensional chess game and nominate Colion Noir. I would love to see how the hating libs would attack a black man. Maybe open up a few more eyes to the true democratic party.

    Collins and Gardner vote for the justice, they likely lose. They call for a delay until after the election or don’t vote for him/her, Republicans abstain from voting for them and assure their defeat. Simple choice for them really.

    That's okay. It makes the SC opening a top issue in the election, and pushes right wing fence sitters to the polls.

    It was said 4 years ago that the opening on the SCOTUS helped Trump. Let's hope for a repeat.

    The senators can talk all they want right now. When it comes time to cast that vote ...
    Trump is going to turn on A LOT of pressure. He'll have four years (with nothing to lose) to pay back some of these cowards - and they know he will do just that!
    As he likes to say, "We'll see!"

    I thought it was interesting that Eric Holder said "but the country is already voting" Not my problem if people can't vote on the correct day!!

    You can't get here from there!
    If the Democrats savage a female nominee like they did Kavanaugh, they do so at their own risk.

    With the special election in Arizona there could be an even slimmer 52 majority. With the RINOS in there it's even worse. If Roberts wasn't such a turncoat this wouldn't be as critical.

    It will be no different than the white folks out there calling black cops the N word during the riots. It only upsets our side.

    Not if the vaunted GOP loses the Senate. They get sworn in before the President gets inaugurated.

    It's the presidents constitutional duty. Let the senate, especially the Democrats spend time and resources fighting the qualified candidate. Let the leftist expose themselves of their anti Catholic opinions.

    Kamala Harris and other senators do not Catholics.
    In January, Harris and other Senate Democrats demonstrated shocking anti-Catholic bigotry in the confirmation hearings of Judge Brian Buescher. They used his membership in the charity Knights of Columbus — a Catholic fraternal service order — as a reason he was unqualified to be a federal judge. The beliefs of the Knights of Columbus align directly with the positions of the Catholic Church.
