Progressives Decry Missouri Sen. Blunt's Supreme Court Vacancy Double Talk

Here's a meme quote that's convincing angry aunties on Facebook who don't want to admit that Veep Biden flip-flopped on the issue as well . . .
  
"2016, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.): “The Senate should not confirm a new Supreme Court justice until we have a new president." 

And now, of course, opinions on both sides of the aisle have "evolved: now that roles are reversed because consistency is overrated in politics . . . Checkit:

Sen. Blunt says President Trump should try to fill Supreme Court vacancy

WASHINGTON - Due to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's recent passing, Republican Senator Roy Blunt said he would find it foolish for President Donald Trump to not try to fill the Supreme Court vacancy.

McConnell is NOT a hypocrite for pushing for a Supreme Court replacement because the Republicans control both the White House and the Senate, unlike the Democrats in 2016, who controlled only the White House. Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president's Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year. The Democraps are masters of taking things out of context and outright lying.

There you go. Lying again. Anthony Kennedy, a Reagan nominee, was confirmed in 1988, an election year, by a Democrat-controlled Congress. Now, back to your basket, you lying deplorable.

One can easily find the same sort of flip flops among Democrats, most prominently Joe Biden, who has thrip flopped on the matter.

You won't read about those in the leftist press.

Who should Blunt care more about, his supporters who want him to confirm a Supreme Court justice or the opposing party who don't want him to? Have Democrat politicians started respecting the opinions of Republicans? Not the last I checked.

Amy Coney Barrett will be the replacement for the baby killer RBG. The libs are melting down. They love killing babies, especially black babies. Common black people, get a clue and start realizing the Democrats are not your friends. Go Amy!!

Dems screwed themselves in the Kabanaugh hearings. The gloves are off. If the RINOs don’t support McConnell needs to remove them from any committees they serve on. Bring it to a head.

UNHINGED: Former Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos floats impeaching @realDonaldTrump or AG Bill Barr to Nancy Pelosi to prevent Trump from filling the vacancy on the Supreme Court.

That's fine, Senator Blunt. So he can ignore their own GOP rules from 2016 and make up new rules a month before an election now simply because their guy is in power.

Expect 11 or 13 justices seated on the supreme court next year to restore fairness and overturn this perversion of democracy. That's the bed you are making. I can live with that.

The Biden rule was really just a general principle but circumstances are important. If the Democrats had not pulled so many sleazy tricks trying to scuttle the Kavanaugh nomination these circumstances would be less toxic. If you want to find out how toxic things can really get, just try to stack the Supreme Court. Conservatives are not going to peacefully tolerate being disenfranchised by Democrats changing the rules every time they lose. Stop applying the Brezhnev doctrine to American politics.

Mitch McConnell on "Meet the Press" 2016: "The American people are about to weigh in on who is going to be the president. And that's the person, whoever that may be, who ought to be making this appointment."

Now tell us again about THE DEMOCRATS "changing the rules" @8:47

"There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the President stops being President in his last year. Eight is not a good number for a collegial body that sometimes disagrees.” - RBG, 2016

There is no rule that precludes a president to withhold a nomination during an election. The Judiciary act of 1869 is an actual written rule that sets the membership of the Supreme Court.

@9:21, Rules can change - There is even a Constitutional Amendment that banned the sale and consumption of Alcoholic Beverages, and it was changed and repealed. Other "written rules" made it illegal for women to vote, and even restricted the right to vote to property owners. The Act you mention isn't even a part of the Constitution.

And no, there is no "rule" prohibiting the President from making such a nomination during an Election Year, but in 2016 many, many Republicans spoke out publicly against the President doing so, and nothing has changed since then except that the same officeholders are now advocating the practice they were so opposed to. In 2016 they used historical precedent to justify their opposition, and that same history still exists, which is what is making them look and sound like hypocritesin the eyes of the American People.
