Don’t be fooled, both Republicans AND Democrats are being massive hypocrites about this RBG replacement
In 2016 the Republicans made a big stink about not putting somebody on the Supreme Court during an election year since “the people” ought to have a chance to have their say first.
This was completely stupid and the Democrats pointed it out. People had their say in the 2010, 2012, and 2014 elections on who the President and Senators would be in 2016 to carry out Presidential and Senatorial duties. These people continue to operate until they leave office. There’s no portion of their terms that is somehow invalid. Even if an emergency situation arises. That’s their job.
Now it’s 2020, all of that still holds. Republicans are being massive hypocrites, and Democrats are pointing this out, but they aren’t actually wrong. This time they’re on the correct side of the argument. They have reversed their stance and now insist that the position the Democrats argued four years ago is the correct one.
However, don’t let Democrats off the hook on the hypocrisy charge, they are being just as hypocritical as Republicans. They have reversed their stance and now insist that the position Republicans argued four years ago is the correct one. The very thing they raised hell about and have held a grudge on is what they now insist Republicans repeat.
Neither party has principles, they go with whatever benefits them at the moment.
