De-Trumpitize the supreme court

De-Trumpitize the supreme court
Democrats take the house, senate and presidency and add three additional seats to the supreme court.
Or
Just let the next president nominate a justice.


6-6 or 5-4 take your pick Trumpiters

Yeah, it appears that's where it is headed. Quite a few are talking about exactly this scenario.

But why settle on 6-6, why not 8-6? The Constitution does not establish how many judges should be on the supreme court which is something the founders should have established, but didn't.

If McConell and many of the Republicans who decried that Garland should not be permitted to even get a hearing because he was nominated 10 months before the election, they will sure look like hypocrites demanding a vote 45 days before an election in 2020 in this case. I expect it to happen and will most likely hurt those senators with independents in the coming election.

This is a slippery slope where the party in control can modify the court to the quantity of judges that give it a majority with far left or far right judges, but it's unfortunate because since McConell refused to allow Garland to have a hearing and lets remember Garland is a moderate.

https://www.politico.com/story/2016/...o-is-he-220865

My guess is they'll be contentious wrangling on the far right nominee, and Susan Collins will be concerned, but vote party over conscious, and the nominee will be confirmed.

I then think if Biden wins, and the Dems win the Senate you will see the end of the filibuster, and more importantly you'll see the quantity of judges increased significantly who will sail through Congress. My guess is Biden could then add as many as 10 new Supreme Court judges giving Dems the majority until the numbers swing the other way - if they do.

It was either NPR or cnn that just mentioned the next and apparently the last two supreme court justices were seated by a president and Senate did not represent a majority of "we the people". The tail wags the dog indeed.

The tough shit approach to politics and governing requires some fancy footwork when the other side throws doodoo back at you. The next 6 weeks should be a "shitshow,'' indeed. One thing for sure, Trump lucks out with the COVID situation not front page any more.

All bullshit. I don't think anyone on the right side is concerned. Its almost like someone coming to you with a wild dream they had and expecting you to faint.

Well Obama did nominate Garland and if they held the Senate they sure as shit would of confirmed. So Trump putting forward a nomination would hardly be a 180. The simple fact as Obama once said with a smirk... Elections have consequences.

You make it sound like a big deal. Second inaugurations are usually pretty boring so not sure why the countdown. Iím a Trump supporter and I could care less about his parade. Why should you?
