Pure obstructionism: Democrats REFUSING to meet with SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh, claiming ‘scheduling’ conflicts

(National SentinelJustice On Hold: Remember a few years ago when Senate Democrats were angered by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s decision not to hold a confirmation hearing on President Obama’s third Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland?

“Do your job!” rallies were held by Dems in Washington, D.C., as they implored the Kentucky Republican to at least schedule a confirmation hearing.

McConnell responded that the Senate, in its “advice and consent” role, was neither obligated to vet Garland or “give consent” to his appointment.

But Senate Republicans did meet with and eventually give consent to two of Obama’s SCOTUS picks — Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, two of the most Left-wing judicial activists ever to sit on the high court (Kagan was never even a federal judge, just a law professor who objected to military recruiters on the Harvard Law School campus because she opposed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” — a law passed by Democrats in 1993).

Now, however, after POTUS Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to become his second SCOTUS pick, Democrats are so infuriated they won’t even meet with him.

Talk about obstructionists. Talk about hypocrites.

As the Washington Examiner notes:




Many Senate Democrats have refused to hold the traditional meet and greet events with Supreme Court nominee Judge Kavanaugh, arguing they have not received all of the millions of pages of documentation related to Kavanaugh’s time working in the Bush White House.

Their shut out could ultimately delay the confirmation process and has prompted a threat from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to keep the Senate in session until Election Day if that time is needed to confirm Kavanaugh.

Republicans want to confirm Kavanaugh by Oct. 1, which is the start of the next Supreme Court term. To show they mean business, Republican leaders have said they won’t adjourn for all-important campaigning this fall if Kavanaugh isn’t on track to making that deadline.

Kavanaugh has requested meetings with many Democrats, GOP leaders said, but nearly all have said they have not been able to fit him into their schedules.

Riiight. They’re just too busy — to meet with a Trump nominee.

FINE, LET THEM OBSTRUCT THE PRACTICE OF MEETING WITH A NOMINEE. AFTER A FEW WEEKS IF KAVANAUGH HAS NOT BEEN MET WITH THE THREE OR FOUR DEMORATS THAT THE REPUBLICANS THINK WILL VOTE FOR HIM… THEN LET IT BE KNOWN THAT THEY WILL BE IN SESSION UNTIL THE ELECTIONS, AND GO AHEAD AND HOLD A VOTE. REMEMBER THE “NUCLEAR OPTION” THAT IS AVAILABLE TO BOTH PARTIES? AND REMEMBER THAT THE V.P. HOLDS A DECIDING VOTE THAT COULD BRING THE COUNT TO 50? WELL, WOULDN’T THAT JUST FRONT THE ASSES OF ALL THOSE WHO THOUGHT THEY COULD HOLD THIS PROCESS UP… Read more »

Dickee pretty much said what I was going to say. … Offer a meeting and if a few Dems choose to strike a posture by claiming other more necessary business elsewhere, then bring it to a vote anyway. … ASAP

Perhaps a lot of the Democrats claiming scheduling conflicts actually have them. They are probably scheduled for job interviews with potential future employers. Because they know their current jobs will end on election day. It is going to be sweet. Oh so sweet.

Here’s how it SHOULD work. 1 – You have a meeting on XX/XX/XX at XX:XX. 2 – Attend this meeting if you want to interview the candidate. 3 – If you don’t show up, we take that as you do not have any questions.

Who cares what the Democrats think? They don’t care for our opinions. Do what has to be done to shove Kavanaugh through and let the Dems throw their tantrum! They will no matter what! LOL!
