    There is no one that Trump could nominate that the dems would approve of. They were against his pick before they even knew who it was.

    That's true, I believe it took less than an hour from the moment he was nominated to fill in his name on the resistance signs and press releases.

    While I believe in my heart that his nomination will be approved, it's interesting to watch the political side of things. The Democrats are determined to hold up the process until after the mid-terms in hopes of gaining a majority in the Senate which would allow them to block any Trump nomination, and the Republicans are determined to get this one approved before the possibility of losing their majority may come to pass. Unfortunately, as this plays out a good man is being abused by the process.

    Did you say the same thing about the Garland nominee? At least in that case Republicans loved him until the evil Obama nominated him...

    I don't believe I ever said a word about him, nor do I remember Republicans raking him over the coals (although perhaps one or two did, I really don't remember), his nomination never got that far.

    I never thought Garland was a threat to all that's right in the world as Democrats apparently do with Kavanaugh.

    I think it was Obama who was the threat to Republicans- thus no raking over the coals of Garland, just refusal by Congress to even consider him or anyone.

    If only Joe Biden hadn't come up with the idea and promoted it years earlier, but that was during a Republican administration so I'm sure it was perfectly acceptable then.

    Garland was a Republican but a fair middle of the road guy. Yet the republicans blocked him for no reason. Now a horrible guy has been nominated and I hope we can block him.
