If Bader Ginsburg dies in 2020, will McConnell stick to his own rule and not have a SC justice appointed?

We all know he is a pillar of integrity.

    He says not. I despair at finding enough Republican senators to have the guts to fight him on it, just for the sake of holding him to his word and striking a blow for the will of the people who voted for Barack Obama for two full terms. Handily.

    Nope, a replacement will be nominated and voted on.

    Of course not, knowing perfectly well that Trump will not win re-election in 2020, and that the Senate may very well go blue and that Moscow Mitch himself may be out of a job he'll demand a new justice be appointed immediately.

    Thanks to Harry Reid not a chance. Good chance Trump will thwart liberal efforts to pack the court. by adding to it an making those appointments. The blue wave is a myth.

    Elections have consequences.

    Guess who said that?

    Odumbo.

      I’m sure we all agree that elections SHOULD have consequences no matter who said it. Ironically, it appears that Obama was mistaken if he meant they had consequences for a full term.

    By default, yes, yes — but not at the expense of putting our nation's highest court in a worse position next year than it was in 2018. This will be the first time in 30 years that the Supreme Court is not in the minority with two seats in the majority — one with a vacancy.

    And if we all do our civic duty and make sure Sen. John McCain is not seated, the next president — whichever presidential nominee Hillary Clinton happens to become — is likely to nominate Justice Anthony Kennedy and that will be the final nail in the coffin of the majority. If John Kennedy is not in the minority, the next president will want to appoint another justice. McConnell does not want that outcome.

    Like many politicians, I'm sure he will find some sort of mental gymnastics to justify a nomination.

    To be honest I thought the whole "Let's settle the Supreme Court nominee with the next election." was a ridiculous excuse, regardless of party. It is the right of the President to make nominations, and it's the duty of the Senate to approve it. Do the job.

      His mental gymnastics are actually fairly rare. He just doesn’t answer questions at all.

    You mean "MOSCOW MITCH" OR "MOSCOW McCONNELL" ?

    RBG will be lucky to make it to 2020. DEMS should prepare for another REpuke on the SCOTUS.

    And for an 11 judge court after the next BLUE WAVE.
