The Socialist party of America and it’s army of the useful are now adopting the position that the seat was “Stolen” from them as the vacancy occurred roughly a year ago and within the Obama Presidency, Their reasoning is there was ample time to conduct a hearing and possibly swear in a Justice on President Obama’s watch. President Obama even went as far as nominating Merrick Garland, possibly the most ‘conservative’ nominee the Left has offered ever. All of this theater was promoted to the useful masses as ‘deserved’ even though Supreme Court appointments have not happened within a year of a Presidential Election in over 80-years.
While we listen to the Left howl at the injustice… think about this;
What if, after the inevitable confirmation of soon to be Justice Gorsuch, Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg buys the farm? (Literally or Figuratively… I mean, who doesn’t want a farm?)
Now suppose President Trump nominates… wait for it…
It would be rich.
Trump would appropriately position the nomination as a compromise, even a nod… giving the Progressive Leftists want they wanted in the first place. (If you close your eyes you can hear the choking sound…)
Now let’s go a step further and entertain another vacancy available to President Trump. Suppose another Justice retires, or buys a farm next to Ginsberg.
After such a Magnanimous gesture by President Trump to the horrid Democrat
Socialists with the nomination of ‘their guy’ Merrick Garland… he nominates another ‘strict Constitutionalist’ and demands their confirmation.
The Art of the Deal.
A Trap for Fools, or rather The Aristocracy.
Since I’m drunk… suppose he gets another term and yet another vacancy… and does it again?
I think the Liberal Socialists would finally, collectively, Jump against Trump.
*’strict Constitutionalist’ is being used to identify those judges who believe the Constitution as written is the basis for our legal system. I personally don’t understand how there can acceptably be any other kind… I’m clearly biased against pillars of judicial brilliance such as Russia, China, Venezuela, Fiji and the Philippines, etc. etc.
