I do but unfortunately we aren't dealing with a willing and moral partner. The only purpose now for conservatives is to desperately keep something that resembles the republic of the United States for the next generation. Everything at this point should go to preserving what we can from those hell bent on destroying it.
I'll play your semantics game. Why is it okay to not confirm in year 8? Why not extend that to year 7. What makes it okay just because it is an opposing party. Why not just never confirm an opposing party's nomination?
All of this stuff about election years, opposing party, same party, etcetera is really just scenery. You can use the past to justify whatever is being done. The real truth is that these votes are based on whatever these pols think will bolster their chances of re-election or appease party leadership (or both) among other self-serving motivations.
