On the Thurmond Rule and the Right to Choose

This from Steven Chase:

Historically, throughout American history, when their party controls the Senate, presidents get to fill Supreme Court vacancies at any time — even in a presidential election year, even in a lame-duck session after the election, even after defeat. Historically, when the opposite party controls the Senate, the Senate gets to block Supreme Court nominees sent up in a presidential election year, and hold the seat open for the winner. Both of those precedents are settled by experience as old as the republic. Republicans should not create a brand-new precedent to deviate from them. A president can always make a nomination for a Supreme Court vacancy, no matter how late in his term or how many times he has been turned down; the only thing in his way is the Senate.

Tim adds:

The Thurmond Rule was merely a gentleman's agreement. As the Democrats have proven time and again they are no gentlemen (changing the Senate filibuster rules, impeaching a President in an election year) there is no reason why the GOP should feel bound by it.

I would point out that the Democrats demanded they discard the Thurmond Rule when Obama tried to appoint his pick, and they raged against McConnell for not bringing Merrick Garland up for a vote DESPITE the agreement. So now that it works in their favor they WANT to keep the rule? Well, they already broke so many agreements already there is no reason to play nice anymore.

Be careful what you wish for; you might get it. The Democrats demanded the Thurmond Rule be abolished; now it has.

They impeached Trump during an election year and wouldn't allow the GOP to call their own witnesses before the House committee, for instance.

Now they want fairness? You can't make deals with snakes or scorpions.
