‘Excellent idea!’: Ted Cruz responds to Dem senator’s threat to boycott Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation

News & Politics

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) fired back the perfect response to Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal on Sunday after the Connecticut lawmaker promised to boycott Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation.

What did Blumenthal say?

In a lengthy Twitter rant, Blumenthal called Barrett’s nomination an “illegitimate sham process.” He claimed “Barrett’s views would harm real lives” — citing health care and female reproductive rights — and ultimately vowed to boycott her entire confirmation process.

“I will refuse to treat this process as legitimate & will not meet with Judge Amy Coney Barrett,” Blumenthal said.

How did Cruz respond?

The Texas senator said Blumenthal’s promise to boycott Barrett is not a bad thing. In fact, Cruz said it would be beneficial if every Democratic senator took the same position as Blumenthal.

That way, Barrett would be confirmed to the Supreme Court even quicker.

“Excellent idea! And if you & all your Dem colleagues boycott the hearing altogether, we’ll avoid the political circus & the desperate attempts to smear Judge Barrett and her family,” Cruz said. “And we’ll confirm her faster!”

Unfortunately for Cruz, Democrats, despite not having enough votes in the Senate to block Barrett’s nomination, are not going to stand by idly.

What are Democrats gonna do?

According to Politico, Senate Democrats are going to use every weapon in their arsenal to try and delay Barrett’s unstoppable confirmation.

From Politico:

Senate Democrats can’t stop Mitch McConnell from confirming a new Supreme Court justice, but they are already planning to make it as painful as possible. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has his caucus on board with an effort to disrupt and obstruct Senate Republicans, using a wide range of procedural tools to try to make it difficult for the Senate majority leader.

Interviews with more than a dozen Democratic senators revealed broad support for disrupting the Supreme Court confirmation process, even if the strategy yields some collateral damage. Yet Democrats facing tough reelections and those who typically spurn delay tactics overwhelmingly support the hardball campaign, potentially putting them at increased risk of losing their seats.

The options of disruptment include invoking the rarely-used “two-hour rule,” denying a quorum, calling points of order and motions to adjourn, delaying legislative business, and delaying the final Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Barrett, according to Politico.

“Process is everything. So if you’re going to use the process to try to steal an election, then we’re going to use the process to try to do everything for that not to happen,” Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) told Politico.

  1. Brenda Stratton sounds like you deserve it. Blumenthal and all his crime family should stay home that would include every Democrat. It’s we the People that have decided not you morons. If that is to hard for you to comprehend, it’s simple Ruth is a child killer as is most all of you Democrats, Donald Trump is the Peoples choice, your little scam is over boy George aka Blumenthal and company.

    1. Blumenthal is a world-renown cocksucker. He sucks all the liberals dicks in his party. And he loves to fuck Nancy Pisslosi in the ass.

  2. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we won back the House, increased out lead in the Senate, re-elected Trump for another 4 years & all the Democrats left in Congress decided to just stay away!? I cannot think of anything better for We the People!

  3. Dicky Blumenthal shows once again that he is a moron. Ted is right. If the democrats don’t show the confirmation sails through the committee. Of course they are going to try everything they can to delay the inevitable. Nancy Pelosi says she’ll use every arrow in her quiver. I bet she has nothing in that quiver which has nothing but dust, mold and rot in it. It was already going to be an interesting election. Now that we have this nominee things are going to heat up. Pop the popcorn, grab a seat and hold on. It’s going to be a wild 36 days.

    1. Blumhead is a disgrace to the body elected to. I say it’s a BIGGER disgrace how his voters seem ignorant enough to keep re-electing him! I went to Sub School and Nuclear Power school in CT. I thought the people there were more intelligent than to elect a serial Liar especially since the many thousands that died during Nam.

  4. Dickhead Blumenthal, aka super Vietnam war vet (probably cleaned latrines in the US at one of the bases for his whole enlistment), is being obnoxious again. He must have had the toilet seat hit him in the head too many times. How did he ever get elected? Must have been all the morons in his district. He3 needs to STFU and sit quietly in his corner. Then ACB can be confirmed quickly.

  5. At this point who cares what the Democrats do or say they are irrelevant all they want to do is mess up the system if they can they have shown that they don’t care about the country just staying in power by any means, so if they boycott the process all the better there will be less time wasted listening and watching a bunch of useless leftist wingnuts spewing lies and made up stories
