The development will give President Trump the opportunity to name her replacement, and Senate Republicans have promised to try to fill the vacancy even in the waning days of his first term. The confirmation battle, in the midst of a pandemic and a presidential election, is sure to be titanic.

Too early, let's give time to mourn. Thoughts and prayers. She was tough working for that long while suffering from cancer. I would wish it on my worst enemy.

Will they manage to replace her with a good judge prior to January?   Probably not.

Lefty mouthpieces are already saying her dying wish was for the next president to pick her replacement. Yeah, I’m sure that what she said moments before her death.........
Pathetic.

Nightmare scenario, senate flips, dems keep the house, election results are contested, Nancy become interim president and they slam through the most liberal anti-gun justice willing to take the job...

I can't work up a lot of sympathy - there were rights given away that were not in her legitimate power to give.

 

Or in other words - "the bleeding finally stopped".

If you THOUGHT the Leftist protests/rioters WERE bad up til now, you ain't SEEN nothing yet.

They are going to go absolutely NUTZ!!!!

RIP, I said before and I'll say it again, she should have retired years ago and enjoyed retirement.

 

Nightmare scenario, senate flips, dems keep the house, election results are contested, Nancy become interim president and they slam through the most liberal anti-gun justice willing to take the job...

 

If something like that was to happen there is enough time after the election and before the new rounds of elected officials take office to replace her, sure there will be a TON of complaining and probably lawsuits but there is nothing legally or Constitutinally stopping Trump and the GOP Senate from replacing her in the period between election day and inauguration.

 

BTW my social media feed is on fire, the Liberals are in full on panic mode, it's as if they are not confident in their nomination/candidate   :getlost:

Trump will have fun with this soon enough. Im sure he's getting his Twitter fingers ready. Leftist heads are going to be exploding. Make sure you are wearing goggles and  face mask. Interesting how she never stepped down when they wanted her to.

Doesn't matter:  Collins and Murkowski value their own Senate seats more than they do the safety, security, prosperity and future of our country.  And Romney is still pouting because Trump won and he didn't.  As always, the Dems win, even when the choice isn't theirs.

BLM and Antifa will be at the RINOs houses demanding they vote against it. Romney and company will bow down.

Here we go... Lisa Murkowski says she won't vote on a justice to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the election: 'Fair is fair'

McConnell has already thrown down the gauntlet and will go forward with confirmation hearings if Trump nominates a Justice.

 

How about this nightmare...

 

Biden wins

Senate flips

House stays the same

Trump gets his lame duck Justice appointed

 

Congress adds 2 or more seats to the court, probably 4 just for extra padding, and Biden appoints more SCOTUS Justices than Trump did.

Too bad she never retired and got to take some time off. 

 

Now Republicans - PLEASE FILL THIS SEAT WITH A CONSERVATIVE!  If Trump loses this next election, this will help us over those 4 years.
