    Opposite...actually moving towards semi-retirement.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. We'll see... :wink:

    Yeah...I see a lot of wishful thinking in THAT claim. We have significant signs of shakiness in the economy. Polls are showing that those who DO think Trump is doing fine on the economy are not the...

    So clearly you won't object when the Dems do the same thing when they inevitably get the reins of power back in their hands...
  5. :huh:

    :huh:
  6. No. While I don't applaud that choice, there is a...

    No. While I don't applaud that choice, there is a difference between campaigning and governing. Politicians say many things on the campaign trail, only to discover that governing is a different...
  7. Not the point, Teal. The point was the...

    Not the point, Teal. The point was the deceptiveness of the ad campaign itself and McConnell's "strategy," demonstrating that there is one objective to this man: win.
  8. OK, this has me curious. While I am aware both...

    OK, this has me curious. While I am aware both sides do rules twisting, how does Obamacare even begin to resemble the disingenuous rules twisting McConnell did?
  9. Oh horse hockey. Talk about squirming to justify...

    Oh horse hockey. Talk about squirming to justify an inconsistent position. The fact is, "the people will speak" in November, and we will not know who the president will be until late in the day on...

    Like I said, Teal - when the Dems do the same thing to get what THEY want, I hope you will remember your argument.
  11. You forget, Teal, that they do not believe that...

    You forget, Teal, that they do not believe that the fetus is a human life - so from their perspective, it is the state telling a mature, non-criminal woman what she must do with her body versus the...
  12. No. It had nothing to do with "lame duck." As...

    No. It had nothing to do with "lame duck." As noted, a lame duck president only exists from November (after the election) until the end of January (inauguration) if the sitting president is not...
  13. Basically, you're saying, "I got my way about...

    Basically, you're saying, "I got my way about something I consider truly horrible, so it's OK." Please remember that when the other side does it and points to the horrible thing they believe has been...
  14. So your claim is that there is a difference in...

    So your claim is that there is a difference in "the people's will" because the sitting president is running for office? :huh:

    By the way, Obama was not a "lame duck" either. Scalia died in...
  15. When we start defending this type of action on...

    When we start defending this type of action on the basis that it got us what we wanted, "rule of law" has essentially become moot.
  16. I made no comparison to Kennedy/Cavaugh. The...

    I made no comparison to Kennedy/Cavaugh. The question McConnell was asked was about what he would do if a SCOTUS seat opened up in 2020.
  17. As Robert's said, there should be no "Obama...

    As Robert's said, there should be no "Obama judges" and "Bush judges" and "Trump judges." There should simply be judges devoted to upholding the rule of law. ANY judge not doing that should be...

    In 2016, Scalia died. Mitch McConnell refused to even hold hearings on Obama's nominee, insisting that it was an election year and "the will of the people" would be known in November, after which...

    You mean like giving a presidents supreme court nomination a hearing, instead of holding the position hostage to the "will of the people," only to then observe, only a few years later, that if the...
