    If Obama does indeed appoint someone "reasonable," McConnell likely will have a hard time keeping his coalition together -- especially if the GOP shows signs of splitting over the presidential nominee.

    The Republicans will not go along with any appointment by Obama. Its just that simple. To much to lose here. Wait and see. If they do they seal their fate to the voters. I am going to make my stance known to the elected officials too. Any confirmation of this appointee by Obama and you lose my vote, my familys vote and anyone else I can convince.

    Great example of upholding the integrity of the legislative process.

    Gosh we sure could use more who think like this.

    "Follow proper procedures, and I can guarantee that you're not getting my vote".

    You go there you proud American.

    Just telling the truth and there is a growing number of people that are way more vocal than myself on this. Ignore if you choose but if you think that eveything is good in America and we are headed for better times then you are very deceived.

    Sooooooooo....... campaign to disrupt the process as long as it supports your stance, and then we'd all be in good shape?

    Gotcha.

    Sounds like you've been studying at the Kim Davis School of Law and getting straight A's

    B Ball Fan you can take cheap shots all you want, but I am tired of this crap and I will voice my opinions to someone who matters, and that can make a difference.

    But I am sure the Dems never have disrupted any process have they? SMH. And Gotcha all you want, I will do exactly like I said I would. And you or anyone else will not change my mind.

    PS. Looks like Kim Davis got her way in the end. And that really hurts you I know. Just needed to remind you of that.

    FWIW... I am not a Democrat or a Republican, and are you saying that two wrongs make a right?

    I'm not behind any disruption of the process no matter what side perpetrates it.

    Soooooo.... It's OK for the side that you back to disrupt the process if it benefits your side, but it's not OK for the side that you do not back to disrupt the process?

    Noted.

    Anyone concerned from "either side" just what might benefit the country as a whole?

    Screwing with the established process IMO is not a good place to start as it only stands to continue to divide, and if we're worried about any long lasting issues, fudging the rules to get what you want sets a bad precedent.

    Funny how the left is now crying for "proper procedure" when for the 8 years they haven't gave a hoot about it as long as it's Obama manipulating the process...
