This was inevitable. This happening was SO obvious, ever since Harry Reid first changed the rules of the Senate to pack courts with Ideologs, rather then with actual Judges. Yes, technically speaking they are Judges, but anyone who uses Ideology, rather then the law, to decide cases shouldn't be considered a Judge.
So, we have Reid changing the rules of the Senate, which is what made this possible. Oh, and Democrats, this is what that coming back to bite you in the a$$ looks like. Speaking of things coming back to bite you in the a$$...Republicans, if you're listening, if you think going Nuclear like this isn't going to come back and bite YOU in the a$$, you are sadly mistaken. Eventually the pendulum will swing back to the Democrats, who will then be in the Majority, and you will SO regret going Nuclear. Much like I suspect the Democrats are regretting Reid's decision to change senate rules, making this possible.
The Democrats filibust was nothing short of pure revenge for Obama's last nomination, Garland. Pure and simple. And Schumer saying "Oh the GOP should give us a nominee we can confirm". Everytime I saw that clip, I kept hearing Obama's words: "Elections have consequences." Per the Democrats Lord and Savior, Obama, if you loose the election you are pretty much sh*t out of Luck. Yet Schumer still seems to think there are no consequences for loosing the elections. Go figure.
I'm glad the Republicans actually fought back this time, showed a little spine, and didn't cave to the Democrats. But going Nuclear is going to come back and bite them, without doubt.

The last republican leaning independent on this message board. All others have been silenced and driven off, or outright banned. Only ONE remains. I guess HighLander had it right all along....In the end, there can be only ONE.
