The Fuse is Lit...

It seems as if the “Nuclear Option” will finally come to a head. Depending on which side one feels is right, its tough not to look at them like 2 spoiled kids. Both the Republicans and Democrats want to “take their ball and go home”. I also feel that this is not the issue that either side should draw their line in the sand. The Democrats argued for the first Bush term that since he had not won the popular vote that they had to filibuster his judicial nominees. That was nonsense then and is nonsense now. The Republicans put up with it for 4 years and only now are willing to do something about it. This has put 2 judicial nominees on hold for about 4 years. What neither side seems to think about is that someday the control of the House and Senate will change hands and the shoe will be on the other foot.

If the Democrats force the “Nuclear Option” to happen they will have no say in any Supreme Court nominees for a long time to come. Is this their best move to dig in now? Do the Republicans want to “take the gloves off” and be willing to fight back against the Democrats?

I think that 2 groups who are in the business of negotiating deals should be able to reach an agreement. I feel that a yes or no vote should be the only option. If not its time for the voters to take the ball away from these career freeloaders and send them both home…
