Democrats are about to have another meltdown because out of nowhere “Republican” Senator Lisa Murkowski just threw a curveball.
Originally Murkowski wasn’t on board with replacing former Supreme Court Just Ruth Bader Ginsburg however, she’s changed her mind; kind of.
When asked about is she was in favor with moving forward with a SCOTS pick Murkowski said told the Alaska Public:
“I know everybody wants to ask the question, ‘will you confirm the nominee?’” she said outside the Capitol, as her Republican colleagues were gathering for their weekly policy lunch. “We don’t have a nominee yet. You and I don’t know who that is. And so I can’t confirm whether or not I can confirm a nominee when I don’t know who the nominee is.”
Senate Republicans have already announced that they had the votes to get a nominee through, Murkowski’s decision just made the Democrats hopes of any Republican resistance go up in smoke.
“If I had felt that there was a rush to move this through because you’re up against a deadline that is hard and fast, like an election, and that a nominee had not been thoroughly and fairly evaluated through our process, then I’m going to have to look at that,” she said.
Democrats slam on the brakes claiming they aren’t going to pack the court and get rid of the filibuster, two very liberal Republican Senators aren’t saying no about the President’s SCOTUS pick, and the New York Times along with Black Lives Matter is scrubbing material from their website and the 1619 project.
If Trump was doing as poorly as the media is telling us none of this would be happening. Should Trump win in November these Senators are going to want things and President Trump keeps a record of who’s with him and who’s against him. If they thought Trump was going to lose they wouldn’t be playing ball at all in order to get favor from the incoming Biden administration.
It just feels like there’s been a shift lately. Trump goes after Critical Race Theory using an executive order, BLM and the 1619 project scrub their website. A SCOTUS seat opens up and 48 hours after claiming they are going to burn the system to the ground Democrats back off. Liberal Republicans who normally go against the President when the media is hyper-focused are playing the word salad game.
If I was a betting (pure speculation on my part) some internal polling came in that is devastating and as long as we (Trump supporters) do our part and show up to vote not even the crazy court decisions helping vote by mail will work.
