    There are dangers either way.

    1. Obama nominates a new supreme court justice and the GOP fights tooth and nail against the nominee?

    2.Obama nominates a new supreme court justice and the GOP approves the nominee?

    For better or for worse, we're in partisan-world. For the vast majority of the electorate, methods don't matter, only results.

    There is no danger for the GOP for fighting the nomination. There is plenty of danger for the GOP for approving the nomination.

    Rev. stop, take a breath and think about it. There is definitely a danger and possibly a serious one if the GOP fights and delays the approval until the election in November. Please, think about it. I am sure you can find a danger. I am looking forward to a reply once you have reasoned it out. Please no off the top of your head, one line reply. Think it over carefully. Thanks.

    Then dentists and manicurists will get richer. And maybe obama will try to include them in his socialist health care act.



    Then obama will grow a trunk and/or senators will grow longer ears and frayed tails.

    Rob, I would not argue with you about that. But that is not a reply to the question. Think it over and tell me a danger of delaying the seating a a new justice before the November election. Thanks.

    Most of the media will spin any delaying tactics against the Republicans, so the danger it will whip up some angst from across the aisle.

    Not fighting at all and allowing the president to replace a conservative justice with a liberal justice is going to anger conservatives.

    So it comes down to who do you want to anger, in an election year, your base or your opponents?

    Rob, you are on the right track. Think it over some more. Go deeper and see if you can find the danger that is further under the surface.

    Trump's campaign is teaching you that there are NO dangers in bashing, opposing, or otherwise personally attacking the architects of the Socialist agenda. In fact, the American people want the GOP to oppose it. Your DNC handler is a slow learner. Time to change the rhetoric.
