I firmly believe Biden wins in November. Pretty much a lock IMO.My post wasn’t about should we care about the SC. It was a comment related to the fact he states he was numb and pissed off. Which tells me he has a very poersonal stake in this process. But should he? I mean how does it really affect one enough to have that kind of raw emotion.
Now if he’d have said gosh I really can’t get my head around this right now and am upset at the process ahead. Ok. But pissed off? I dunno. Seems a tad overplayed.
Now to your other point, we dumb conservatives also have a long term plan for the ramifications of the SC. Gun rights, property rights, liberty, government run healthcare. We’ve been on the long long long play since Row v Wade. But your own myopic sense of this can’t see that. Liberals are probably legitimately upset about this as for years they have used the court to mandate policy that they could’nt get thru the ballot box.
I don’t know what direction the President will go and I have my preference strategy wise but he will be within his constitutional powers no matter what he decides. Putting a person up for a vote if they are gonna fail due to a few senators seems like bad tactics especially if it takes them off the campaign trail. But whatever. This will be a huge draw for conservatives if he leaves it open as a means to motivate evangelicals to the polls. Better to leave it open and ram someone thruin the lame duck session were he to lose.
I think Trump should wait until after the election, and then put forth his nominee so it can be voted on before January 20. Especially if Dems also gain control of the Senate. If the repubs keep control then it doesn’t matter as much. They will at least be able to force Biden to nominate someone who will adhere to the Constitution and prevent a liberal justice.
