How in the hell can you justify McConnell’s hypocrisy?

Probably the same way you folks justify all the hypocrisy on your side of the fence smile

It is what it is, questionable principals reside on both sides, always have and likely always will lol

It is the way politics works. On the other hand, karma and pay-back is a bitch. Sooner or later, the Democrats will be in power, and right now, it's looking like ramming a replacement for RBG through will bring about that certainty sooner rather than later.

Wonders never cease....we agree on something smile

The only way to move an ad back to the top is to repost it.....

Hypocrites, all of them. And you.

Politics thats why......both sides do it and each calls the other hypocrites when they are on the receiving end.....SOP.

I agree that the messaging/rhetoric employed by the R's in this instance reeks of hypocrisy.  Maybe that will hurt them at the polls.  I would bet not.  No one on Earth believes that the Ds would behave any differently if the parties were switched.  Absolutely no one.  Remember that the Ds are the party that invented Borking when they Borked Robert Bork.  The Ds are the party that tried to Bork Thomas and Kavanaugh.  The Ds are the party that removed the filibuster for federal judges.  And so on.  There are no clean hands in DC.

I saw a headline that Romney was on board with a SC vote this year.  If that is true, I think it is a done deal.  Trump will nominate and the Senate will confirm.  The only question is whether this costs or benefits him on election day.
