McConnell killing the Garland nomination never should have been necessary if SCOTUS was properly limited. Same applies for the Kavanaugh war, which tilted the court only slightly more to the right.
Equating the two is pure nonsense.
I am applying a consistent standard. You, on the other hand, are not.
No, I expect the opposition to act as a tempering influence on the majority, not act as a petulant child demanding to be heard.
On the flip side, I expect the majority to respect the minority.
I've always been one for compromise and middle of the road governance. I've always been one for good faith governance, that acts in the interests of all constituents and not just those who elected you.
As for resistance to Trump, it's more fact based than the resistance to Obama. Trump is brazenly acting in the interests of the donor class and against the interests of the majority of the populace. His base being too stupid to see that isn't a reason to forgo resisting his actions.
Republicans wanted to go nuclear for the same reason that Dems pulled the trigger.
Hmmmm do the numbers support your assertion?
According to Google searches, Bush had 324 nominated judges appointed and Obama 329. What those numbers represent as a fraction of total nominations I don't know.
Nor do I know how many of the Obama appointees were only appointed after the "nuclear option" changed the balance of GOP obstructionism.
Nope. Never. Please don't tell me you have Jefflexia like Laura does.

Without Hans' creepy way back machine I have trouble believing you were anything but faux impartial.
Sorry, dude. That's just the way it's gone.
