 Charles Krauthammer: GOP will return favor

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer isn’t sad over the Senate rules change invoked by Majority Leader Harry Reid on Thursday. In fact, he’s absolutely gleeful.

“I am extremely happy the Democrats are doing this because they are likely to lose the majority in the coming years,” he said on Fox News on Thursday. “The Republicans will return the favor in spades in the future.”

Krauthammer explained that beyond the immediate win for Democrats on pushing through nominees for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the long-term ramifications of the rules change could benefit Republicans.

“The prospects are very strong that the Democrats will lose the Senate next year and there is an excellent chance of [them] losing the White House,” he said. “When Republicans come into you power, they’re going to include Supreme Court nominees.”

“That will be a devastating blow to the liberals on the court and to the liberals in the country. So I don’t think testimonies will remember this day with any joy in the near future.”

The Democrats are running scared - they know damn well their brand is going to be tossed out on its keester.  They are using anything at their disposal to get their wants now.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I'm afraid senate Republicans simply don't have the guts to do the right thing, especially when they're in control. As a party, with a few exceptions, they are absolutely spineless.

I'd agree with you even as far back as 6 months ago, but ObamaCare has been such and overreach, and will be an absolute failure, that the only reason Dems got rid of the filibuster is because they know they have to pack the courts right now.

It won't matter, though, because the House GOP and Senate GOP will be able to restructure the federal court system.

Harry Reid just played the only card he had left in his pocket.
Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.

No they won't.

The Republicans will put the shackles back on once they regain the majority...

Exactly! Because the Dems always yell the loudest when out of power and every news outlet covers them screaming foul, and the pubbies always cave in!  8888crybaby
