The GOP will do anything to keep Trump in office until RBG dies...
The GOP's hope is to also replace Breyer.
Keeping in mind that Thomas (he's not looking so great lately) might have to be replaced also.
The GOP is on the verge of securing a 6 to 3 majority in the Supreme Court.
The GOP also knows that if a Democrat comes into office in 2020 it could easily last 8 years (and if Biden picks a good VP... AND the economy holds... mostly... that could be 12 years)... during which time the Supreme Court balance could shift back to the "liberal" side.
The pretense that the GOP is backing Trump for any other reason than to secure a solid long term Conservative Supreme Court is naive.
Everything else is shiny little bits and bobbles in the sand.
Yup. All this support of trump boils down to many on the right holding out for more appointments to the courts in their “favor”.
For many it’s the reason they did vote for trump and will do so in 2020 no matter what.
It’s a game of the ends justify the means and they are really invested in their “ends”
I’m not sure the arguments are even that “logical” anymore. They are more emotional and moralistic. It’s very much a matter of opinion on what is “right” with very little middle ground for compromise. Which is a different kind of scary in politics.
