The Republican leadership blew it Big Time with their obstructionist stance, demonstrated by not even considering a Supreme Court nominee from "the Black President", and, "We'll just wait for the election, nearly a year away".
Ha. It blew up in their faces like a cartoon firecracker. Made them look like a bunch of out of touch, overpaid dupes. Also helped usher in Trump, as he positions himself as Mr. Change, and these off-base attempts at pushing a radical right-wing and racist agenda in the Congress have sent their rating plummeting. Even the Koch brothers have drastically cut back on funding the politicians they have purchased. This was a serious miscalculation from the Republican power elite, and they know it. As for the 'ideological' argument, sure, that exists, but Mitch and his pillowcase buddies show their hand by the radical extent to which they take their attempts to block the President, as evidenced by this latest circus over *the current Supreme Court vacancy*, willing to let it languish, holding up the most important judicial decisions made for this country, over some melanin. Wow. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : Oh c'mon Ollie, Everyone knows the Democrats were the party of the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow and segregation.

President Eisenhower , who was a Republican, sent in federal troops to integrate Little Rock schools.

They continue to obstruct the legitimate operation of the Federal government, and you want to blame Clinton, if she gets in? That's a new one. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : If Hillary is elected, she'll appoint Supreme Court judges that will redefine the Second Amendment of the Constitution that allows the people to be armed.
