Obama's SCOTUS Nominee Merrick Garland Being Considered For Biden's Attorney General

Nope. I want Sally Yates. Merrick Garland is not strong enough.

He still has to be confirmed. Biden can just make everyone "Acting", like trumpanzee did.

How is this a “fuck you” to McConnell and the GOP? Garland was selected by Obama because he was a moderate who was acceptable to Republicans. Democrats are so fucking awful at politics.

I want someone ferocious. Sally Yates would be good. So would Preet Bharara. He seems good and mean.
I want a pit-bull who will clamp onto Dump’s tiny wenis and not let go until he bleeds out. For every single person connected to any part of this shitty shitty era.

I was under the impression that Merrick Garland liked being a judge. Why would he give up a lifetime job to take on a pretty thankless job like attorney general for just a couple of years?

Agree with R4...we need someone fierce

I'm actually sad Biden chose Kamala as his VP. She would have been an excellent AG and not let Dump or any of his enablers get away with their crimes. It would have been indictment after indictment. Biden choosing a moderate candidate probably means he's willing to move on and let them get away with their criming. Again.

Preet Bharara would be excellent and a real fuck-you to Trump.

No way. Breyer will retire and Garland ought to get that seat. I want him in the Supreme Court.

I want it to go to Doug Jones, after he got unseated by a backwoods football coach who can’t tell his ass from a goalpost and thinks the Lord blessed us with Donald Trump.

R7 when she was Attorney General of California Kamala Harris went against the recommendation of her office and refused to prosecute Steve Mnuchin for all of the fraud he committed during the housing crisis. He’s now Secretary if the Treasury instead of a convicted felon. I think your faith in Harris’s willingness to go after Trump’s cronies may be misplaced.

What the fuck does that even mean?
This isn't even about him. This is about holding Republicans accountable for their actions. A primary reason as to why he was elected.

It MUST be Sally Yates. I cried when he passed over her for VP.

R3 If Merrick Garland had been acceptable to Republicans, wouldn't he be sitting on the Supreme Court?

Garland isn't hard nosed enough to be AG

The pick needs to be someone who Republicans in the Senate will confirm.

I don't think, with their current behavior, he's going to be beholden to what Mitch wants because Mitch has made it clear he will block at his leisure without reason or provocation.
I doubt he'll be willing to play Mr. Nice Guy over this aspect of his Presidency with their behavior these past few years and even now.

There are Republicans who will vote with Dems to confirm Biden's cabinet. Romney has already said he would. I think Murkowski and what's-er-name will follow suit. McConnell is not going to have the power he has now.
|by Anonymous||reply 22||11/20/2020|
McConnell and the Republicans may revert the filibuster back to how it was before Harry Reid. I bet that’s what they will do. That would give cover by allowing only 41 Republicans to block a nomination and letting senators like Collins, Romney and Sasse do their thing.

Who cares about Senate nomination anymore? Orange shitstain probably had more acting secretaries than confirmed. If they wanna fuck with us, Biden should just do the same. Fuck them. But I doubt he would do this. Dems always try to play by the rules.

I did not remember that. Thanks for reminding me. Maybe you're right, but she's so fierce in the Senate hearings. I loved her questioning Kavanaugh.

Biden & the party owe it to Doug Jones to find something suitable for Doug Jones. If not Justice, what?

Umm, it would be a "fuck you" to McConnell and the GOP because they blocked the appointment of Garland, a highly qualified candidate, to the Supreme Court out of sheer partisan vindictiveness, under the ridiculous argument that the appointment should be left to the new President even though it was many months away from the Presidential election. If you are too dim to figure that out, perhaps you should not be posting opinions about anything anywhere on line.
Of course, while this WOULD stick it to McConnell and the GOP in that sense, Biden would not want Garland as his AG for that reason, but because he feels he would be well qualified for the job.
