They’re about ready to get steamrolled thanks tot he stupidity of Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid, but they’re ready to declare victory.
Seriously, how pathetic can these rockheads get?
Progressives are declaring an early victory over Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination.
Even if President Trump’s pick is confirmed after a historic Senate vote on Thursday to end the minority party’s ability to filibuster Supreme Court nominations, liberal groups think they’ll win.
They predict that Republicans will face a backlash over changing the Senate’s rules and will have to own any controversial decisions handed down by the Supreme Court heading into the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential election.
So Republicans will face a “backlash” for changing rules that Democrats changed? Sure, this sounds sane.
“It’s been our belief since election night that Democrats’ job is to do everything they can to block Trump’s interest and agenda,” said Heidi Hess, the senior campaign manager for Credo Action. “We’re absolutely in support of the Democratic Party acting like the opposition party.”
Kaylie Hanson Long, a spokeswoman for NARAL Pro-Choice America, added separately that if Republicans decide to employ the “nuclear option” on Gorsuch, they will be changing the rules for “a president under active FBI investigation for potential ties to Russia.”
Muh Russia! Don’t anyone tell them, but that narrative is in tatters since we discovered Susan Rice’s perfidy.
“Let’s be clear: the decision to blow up the Senate is squarely in the hands of Republicans, and Republicans alone. And it will be only Republican votes to change the rules,” she wrote in a memo to reporters.
They’re not reporters, they’re Democrats with bylines. And sure enough, they regurgitate this crackpot word for word.
Wait until they realize they have to defend 23 seats in 2018, with many of them running in states Trump won by landslide.
