That’s how you get nonsense like this.
For the nontweeters:
CRUZ: “You didn’t see Republicans after we had management of the Senate attempt to rig the sport. You didn’t see us attempt to pack the court docket.”
Good God in heaven, man. No, you guys didn’t actually attempt to add Supreme Court docket seats. You had been too busy stealing the prevailing ones. Merrick Garland works proper down the road from you now, Ted. Perhaps ask him the way it went down. As if you happen to don’t keep in mind.
By the best way, Cruz was simply effective with shrinking the court docket when he thought Hillary Clinton was poised to call a alternative for Antonin Scalia.
From an October 2016 Politico story:
“There will likely be loads of time for debate on that concern … There’s actually lengthy historic precedent for a Supreme Court docket with fewer justices. I’d word, only in the near past, that Justice [Stephen] Breyer noticed that the emptiness isn’t impacting the flexibility of the court docket to do its job. That’s a debate that we’re going to have,” Cruz mentioned, in remarks first reported by The Washington Submit.
Cruz was unlikely to vote for any Democratic nominee given his conservative ideology, however his remarks might point out a broader shift throughout the GOP to halt Democrats from shifting the court docket’s stability to the left. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) mentioned earlier this month the GOP can be “united” in blocking a Clinton appointment, remarks he later softened.
He was additionally fairly desperate to grease the skids for Amy Coney Barrett, who was confirmed in … oh, that is attention-grabbing … October 2020. Like, per week earlier than the election. And but Ted and his boob brigade thought there was one thing untoward about filling Scalia’s seat so near a presidential election, so that they held up President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland for … oh, right here it’s … 293 days.
Apparently, Republicans assume in the event that they’re not being grotesque hypocrites they’ll stop to exist. Sadly for the remainder of us, they appear decided by no means to check that concept.
