    Ole Turtle face Mitch sure seems to have a sort memory about not confirming a justice.

    NY Shumer fool and him simply switched roles since that hack did the same thing. The difference is there will likely be several dems that support he nominations because come 2yrs from now they won't want to be looking for another job due to their own actions that will no doubt come back to bite them if they obstruct.

    Actually Dems will definitely try to hijack Trump on a few legislative matters, and it might work. It's not like the guy has core Republican values LOL.

    I still think they should have settled for Garland. He was a gift. Mitch has a lot riding on having sold that one short. For one thing it was going to be an easy confirmation. Whatever pick Trump and McConnell settle on for Scalia's replacement now will be a different story. There could even be some Republican defections if they go too far to the right. Not all those Senators are right wing fringe on social issues....

    Yeah, he's a jack wagon. But I'm not one for repeating the Republican's cynical ploys just because now they're in power. Of course if a nominee is unacceptable, then vote against them. But don't obstruct simply to obstruct. Try to teach Republicans how to oppose without being a party of jack wagons.

    Pelosi heads up the House for the Dems; Schumer was the logical successor to Reid for the Dems in the Senate. I'm sure they're both happy to be heading up their party in their respective houses of Congress, same as Ryan and McConnell for the GOP. There's not much more power to be had at least as far as legislative heft is concerned.
