If the Democrats win the senate...

Imagine this scenario:

Dems win the senate (not super likely, around a 30% chance)
Kavanaugh goes down (also probably around a 30% chance)

and they get control of the Senate with an open supreme court seat.

Then they say either:

a) We'll only confirm garland or
b) We'll only confirm someone to the left of garland

I'm sure everyone here would just "oh sure, fair's fair. That's within the rules of the senate." Right?

So this would become the Schumer Rule, and **** over the Democrats again 20 years from
now...

Oh and thanks for being honest about the above being the true intent of the left, this has nothing to do with Ford other than using her as a stooge in the plan.

If the Democrats control the Senate they can pretty much do whatever they want. This is what Brian Fallon has overtly said is the real plan with Kavanaugh.

It’s not what the framers had in mind and Democrats may pay a price at the polls (which is the brilliance of our system), but ultimately they can play the same game the GOP started.

I actually think the “Garland Gambit” you lay out here would be pretty effective though — although I doubt he would be Democrats first choice because of his age his confirmation would undoubtedly provide a certain satisfaction I’m sure.

That said, given how Trump plays to the base, he’d never do it. It would be up to the voters to be okay with it or not and decide to pressure Dems or not.

Trump won't pick Garland. That would be a complete cave on his part.

Gee, another stupid thread from Rodeo. Shocker.


At least I found out today that Chuck Schumer won't be confirming a Trump appointee! So glad I discovered that. Valuable info

If you are going to spend your time on "What if" scenarios I suggest you start with the "What if I had a brain?" scenario first and work your way up from there.

She's needed her seat filled for a long time. You know what I'm saying.

If RBG kicks the bucket, then SCOTUS is 4-3 in favor of Constitutionalists. Trump doesn’t need to nominate anyone.

Trump mostly cares about looking good and feeling respected. I think there's a real chance if the democrats played him right he would nominate garland. "You can be a peacemaker, you can right the wrong" etc.

Even beyond that I think there's a real chance the if the dems win the house / senate they pass some progressive policies and Trump signs them to show what a good deal maker he is / how popular he can be etc.

I'm not sure how popular a one term president can be? Surely he would see that.

Yeah, sure. After 4 entire years of mocking his candidacy and his presidency, trying to hang bullshit criminal charges into him, and savaging his own family, Trump will be just itching to "work with" Libshits


You need mental help.
