Radical definition (Merriam Webster)
a: very different from the usual or traditional
b: favoring extreme changes in existing views, habits, conditions, or institutions
c: associated with political views, practices, and policies of extreme change

The conservatives are trying to maintain the status quo and even take us back in history a few decades.....seems the opposite of radical......but I know you guys like to make up your own definitions for words.....

That's just a typical number. For comparison, Obama had 329 confirmed, Clinton 372, Bush Jr. 327, and Reagan 402. 160-200 is about what you'd expect for a single term.

he’ll have plenty time after 2020 to appoint a lot more.

Tbh I don’t think most voters are smart enough when it comes to understanding the government and how it all works to vote for someone mostly because they’ll appoint many federal judges.

I hope so.
In another thread, we are debating the provisions of The Second Amendment. Having conservative judges and a conservative Supreme Court is important to me, although I find myself on the far left side of the debate.
Trump is doing far, far more good than harm, even though I disagree with him in some areas.

Just the opposite.

McConnell has torn up senate precedent (I.e. the blue slip rule, simple majority for SCOTUS,etc) to make it easier than ever for this POTUS to make judicial nominations.

In fact this is the bargain the GOP has currently made. They are willing to tolerate an out of control unqualified maniac in the WH as long as he rubber stamps whatever judges the conservative think tanks tell him to put up.
I cannot believe you had the unmitigated gall to type such an obviously false comment. What happened to Kavanaugh was an unprecedented freak show, culminating with false allegations no innocent person would ever want publicly leveled at them.
Maybe a child molester/murder would have been worse, but nothing else I can think of.

Many thought the Democrats could never go lower than what they did to Judge Robert Bork, hence the "term Bork" has become a transitive verb to mean obstruct through systematic defamation or vilification.
Like his judicial philosophy or not, he was one of the most qualified judges ever nominated for the scotus.
Democrats decided they were going to do anything to stop him, and made up the most absurd and defamatory false accusations against him. With a large number in the senate and the complicit media behind them, they managed to ruin the poor guy.

Yet they have indeed topped themselves with what they attempted to do with Kavanaugh. That went well beyond anything remotely close to obstruction. It was full blown character assassination that no person would want to be accused of.

The conservative evangelical community did just that. They will hold their noses and do it again in order to make abortion against the law. Then they will go after equal rights for the LGT community.

They are hoping we forget about Kavanaugh.

No one will forget how the left savaged him and his family.

The stench from that travesty will cling to Democrats for years to come.
