    Senate Democrats Whine, Plead All Sunday Night Ahead of Barrett Confirmation Vote

    Senate Democrats Whine, Plead All Sunday Night Ahead of Barrett Confirmation Vote

    Here’s a great laugh for your Monday!
    Listen to this article

    After the Senate procedural vote on Judge Amy Coney Barrett on Sunday, the Senate Democrats stayed on the floor to whine, cry, and plead not to confirm her to the Supreme Court.

    The final confirmation vote will take place Monday night.

    Oh, the Democrats puked their usual talking points: Barrett will overturn Obamacare, strip everyone of their healthcare, and invade every woman’s doctor’s office to make sure she isn’t committing infanticide.

    Is there anyone else who can hyperbole better than Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer?

    Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) sobbed, “The Affordable Care Act hangs in the balance with this nomination!”

    Carper snapped that the nomination and confirmation is a picture of “hypocrisy” because the coronavirus death toll is at 220,000 and the election is only days away.

    Carper also alluded that Trump’s presidency is invalid because he “lost the popular vote” and the House “impeached him.”

    You guys, I cannot even or odd with this crap.

    Conspiracy nut Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) claimed Barrett told them exactly how she would rule because it was impossible to miss since she said it “in ALL CAPS.” Uh…what?

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said, “Americans are suffering!” The Senate should be “negotiating a real relief package!”

    Blame Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, lady.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said Republicans are stealing this SCOTUS seat!

    Oh, look! Sen. Angus King (I-ME) using the new definition of court-packing!

    Gilbrand – “Americans are suffering.
    We are reaching a third coronavirus peak.”

    Different areas of the country have been having their first of 3 separate 1st waves.

    On the birthday of Mrs. Bill Clinton!


    If democrats don’t like it they can blame their selfish, miscalulating hero RGB who thought she would outlive Trump. She made her bet and she lost. Winner takes all.

    Look, the Dems lost on the SCOTUS nomination. They let the Notorious RBG, Saint Ruth, remain on the court when she could have retired under Obama and most likely replaced by a liberal jurist. But, they did not and now they lost another seat on that panel. So what do they have left? The old standby; the Republicans will take away your rights, your money and your life. It is interesting that since 1900, and actually before that, it was the Democrats who took away people’s liberty and rights, their money and even their lives. Why does anyone listen to a thing that they say anymore?

      RBG didn’t retire because Obama didn’t want to negotiate anything with the Senate or Congress. It’s 100% on him that they lost the seat.

        While BHO bears some responsibility for not pushing for RBG to retire, the Dems controlled the Senate prior prior to 2011. It would have been a relatively simple matter to ratify a replacement for RBG prior to the Republican takeover of that body.

          While that’s technically true, I don’t think Barry’s little braintrust thought they would lose the legislature so quickly.

          I also think single issue voters lead to single-minded politicians that were too busy ramming through Obamacare to worry about anything else.

        Not really. BHO had a private lunch at the WH w/RBG in 2013. He tried to persuade her to retire because he thought it was highly likely the GOP would gain control of the Senate in the upcoming midterm election. And BHO was 100% correct.

        “‘When Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joined President Barack Obama for lunch in his private dining room in July 2013, the White House sought to keep the event quiet — the meeting called for discretion,’ the New York Times reports…

        He did, however, raise the looming 2014 midterm elections and how Democrats might lose control of the Senate. Implicit in that conversation was the concern motivating his lunch invitation — the possibility that if the Senate flipped, he would lose a chance to appoint a younger, liberal judge who could hold on to the seat for decades.”

        I’d say the “blame” (from the Democrat Socialist perspective; I consider it incredibly good luck) falls on the two arrogant narcissists in a 50/50 split. RBG was a devout atheist. In the New Atheist strain of atheism; the kind of atheist that simply have to believe God exists, because they couldn’t direct such anger, hatred, and venom at something that doesn’t exist. So while it should be obvious to anyone that you can time your retirement, it never occurred to RBG that she couldn’t time her death.

        A leftist is a jealous god, and thou shalt have no other gods before her.

        On the other hand I think it’s “cute” that the NYT reports “[i]mplicit in that conversation was the concern motivating his lunch invitation.” Oh, implicit, was it. Earlier in the article the NYT uses the word “discretion.” This lunch invitation was about as discrete as whacking someone in the head with a 2×4. If Obama wanted to “build rapport” with RBG then he should have started as soon as he was sworn in on 20 January 2013. He should have invited all the justices in turn to the WH for private lunches. Instead he waited six months into his term and only invites RBG who, as the article at the link notes, was then the oldest justice on the court and who already twice had concer.

        Could he have made it any more obvious exactly what he wanted form her? And recall Obama liked to brag about how highly he thought of himself and his ability to schmooze people into doing what he wanted. The hustle doesn’t work if you go on TV and brag about how you’re going to con some unsuspecting mark out of their life savings, then you invite the mark to lunch and try to con them out of their life savings.

        RBG was a partisan hack, but she wasn’t nearly the gullible fool that Obama clearly thought she was.

        The hubris both of them brought to that lunch table doomed the effort before anyone said a word to the other. Thank God.

      Because you can fool some of the people all of the time. And they’ve got ’em.

    Barrett should be sworn in tonight, immediately after her confirmation.
