RBG and The Supreme Court

The woman who led an incredible life and left behind a political nightmare.

As many are caught up in the death of RBG it’s no surprise to see it evolve into a political circus. While many of the far left leaning ideologies are mourning, and right leaning ideologies are celebrating, our elected officials are losing their minds. 

 According to the constitution, it is the Presidents job to nominate a Supreme Court justice upon a vacancy and the Senates job to confirm. If you aren’t familiar I’ve linked it below.

So why then is it necessary to add in the drama? Why are we all watching our elected officials make threats against our president for doing the job he was elected to do?

In 2016 Barack Obama himself stated that he would do his job until January 20, 2017 concerning a Supreme Court nomination. And he did. His job was to NOMINATE. Not confirm.

In 2016 Ruth Bader Ginsburg herself state’s that there is nothing in the constitution that says a president cannot nominate a new Supreme Court justice. 

Joe Biden stayed that the country deserved a full Supreme Court of 9. He obviously forgot. 

Meanwhile, to be fair, Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham both opposed an election year nomination/appointment.

So I have to ask, What has changed? The political games are enough to give any American paying attention whiplash.  And believe me. We ARE paying attention. Watching these elected officials behave in such a way is likeness to childish squabbles. It’s irritating and leaves a bad taste. 

Currently Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are both throwing threats on the table that should raise questions by everyone. Impeachment for fulfilling your duties? Or are we being groomed for yet another coup by the Democrats? Would you be surprised at this point of the extent to which our political millionaires are willing to go?

Ladies and gentlemen, we live in a Republic governed by The Constitution of The United States of America. Why are we being pitted against one another over Constitutional law?

I’m not sure about you but I am unimpressed. There is no dignity in politics anymore. Just a bunch of politicians with no integrity and inflated bank accounts and egos. 

Ruth Bader Ginsberg left this world and when she did she left behind a vacancy that like it or not, needs to be filled. The President was elected into office to do a job and filling that vacancy is one of them. So, until January 17, 2020, We the American people expect him to do just that. I am very confident that, like many other promises he’s made, he will! 

Fill the seat!

And a little extra sauce
