    Like I said, the master dealmaker should have been able to get something done. The wall was his holy grail when he campaigned. Goes to show you how much he really cared about it once he got into office.

    This is the same guy who wrote on twitter that Nominating Gorsuch to the bench was a big accomplishment/achievement. The same guy that nominated tons of unqualified candidates to federal benches, convinced his base that nominating a justice was a huge obstacle to overcome. It's his constitutional duty to nominate a judge and other than Kavanaugh, Presidents usually get their picks in pretty smoothly.

    Obama risked a lot more politically caving in to the GOP during the Grand Bargain negotiations than Trump has during this "national emergency".

    Boehner was ready to jump in with Obama but the freedom caucus and the other tea party types wanted nothing to do with it.

    Well considering Judges was one of the two reasons he got elected he should tout those. And overcoming the Clinton/Media machine was a huge accomplishment. The supreme court justices are the long lasting symbol of that accomplishment.

    And you are going to blame Trump for Kavanaugh not being smoothly? Well, thats something...

    Even Turtle McConnell warned Trump several times that there were other candidates that could get through the nomination process with no issues.

    I'd imagine there are always more 'electable' candidates in any nomination process. There was absolutely no reason why Kavanuagh should have been stonewalled like he was but it was a 2020 presidential audition and not a supreme court nomination process. They cared so much about his 'transgressions' that you haven't heard a word about it since he was nominated.

    no...he was quite bitter about the whole thing (in part because the party he supported was pro-American and the one that took over after the coup was pro-communist, so he felt let down)...and by then he was sick with lung cancer and just wanted to go home to die

    Sounds like a terrible situation and I'm sure that is one of many stories that result in bad rejections. THe system needs to get righted for sure.

    Why is it so seldom mentioned that Mitch McConnell,

    who could end the shutdown tomorrow if he wanted to, is married to

    Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, who presumably knows very

    well the effects of the shutdown on air transportation?
    The GOP is currently the party of indicted criminals and racists and relies upon fear-mongering to conceal its lack of ideas.
