Court packing OK when Republicans do it?

Let me see. Packing the Supreme Court is a bad, “boneheaded” idea, right? Is that just if Democrats contemplate it, or is it also when Republicans do it? Mitch Mc Connell refused to allow Barak Obama to appoint Marrik Garland to the Supreme Court by saying eight months was

too close to an election for a appointment. But Mc Connell and Trump rammed through three appointments in Trump’s term in office. The last one less than a week before the election. Does the term hypocrisy come to mind?

When Obama won the election for president, McConnell stated that he would not allow him to get any legislation or any thing else done so he would be a one term president. How did that turn out for him? Now he is determined to try to do the same to Joe Biden.

The Republican Party has become a power-hungry entity. Not for the good of the country, but for the sake of power.

What has become of the people like John McCain, who tried to do the right thing for all Americans, not just the ones who vote Republican? Now they have scandal after scandal with the likes of Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Matt Gaetz, and others. If those people are just there to have a job, go out and get yourself something you are fit for. and let someone. who has America’s best interest at heart have a chance to do some good for America, and not just their own interests.
