    2. He had a constitutional right to be on the SC?

    That's a new one.

    One could reasonably claim that he had a right to a vote... or at least a hearing. He didn't have a right to win the vote.

    And Democrats didn't fuss at the time, because we expected to win the White House.

    6. Oh, OK: Let's be technical:

    President Obama had the constitutional right to nominate Garland and the Senate has no valid reason to to have hearings and a vote!

    Are you satisfied now?

    9. Still no

    Nobody expected Garland to get past the Senate, including President Obama. He was nominated so that Republicans would have to own voting him down.

    Democratic senators didn't want him to be confirmed, because they expected Hillary to win the White House and Democrats to retake the Senate. We would therefore have a far more progressive supreme court nominee who we could confirm.

    no I don't because nobody has the constitutional right to be on the Supreme Court.

    One could say that Obama had the constitutional right to appoint Garland, and the Senate had the constitutional right to deny him if they had good cause.


    The republicans will pay for denying the vote on Garland if the dems retake the Senate next year. If one of the liberals, or Kennedy retires or otherwise leaves the court, they can then delay Trump's appointment until after the 2020 election. Turnabout is fair play.
