We all know Mitch McConnell, he’s often a thorn in the side to the Left and sometimes the Right as well. This week, The New Republic proposed the idea that he may regret not appointing Merrick Garland to The Supreme Court because of the ‘backlash’ to the SCOTUS’ decision on abortion, and the actual backlash they got in return was awesome!
If Merrick Garland had been confirmed in 2016, we would still have the Roberts Court instead of the Trump-McConnell Court. As backlash to “Dobbs” mounts, McConnell may come to regret that fact. https://t.co/JPq6fKeVv2

If you followed politics for more than a minute you know that Mitch McConnell plans every move in advance and most importantly, he regrets nothing.
The “backlash” is two points on the generic congressional poll. So I’m thinking no. https://t.co/IMVc5sQlEi

Maybe two points at the most.
Turns out the far left abortion cult vote already & the rest are in support of significant limitations to baby murder.

Narrator: There is no “mounting” backlash.
You live in a bubble.

I’m going to guess that Mitch McConnell will not regret the single biggest victory ever of the conservative legal movement. https://t.co/1KGeJI3cRc

LOL, nah. This is McConnell’s greatest achievement! Self professed and as others see it. For all of their in-fighting, Trump & McConnell agree on that much. Pence does do!

McConnell did NOT make the Dobbs decision that sent abortion back to the states, SCOTUS did. And the decision has shown little to no ‘backlash’, plus it is something the conservative moment has fought toward for years! If he played even a small part in that, what is there to regret?
It Garland has shown himself to be a blind partisan hack.
So we dodged a bullet.

– There was absolutely no scenario where Merrick Garland would’ve garnered the 60 votes he needed to pass cloture.
– You still have the Roberts Court. He’s still CJ.
– Backlash is not “mount[ing]” to Dobbs
– McConnell regrets nothing
– Cry more

We did indeed dodge a bullet and the fact that there were probably not 60 votes for Garland to be confirmed in the first place is a pesky little detail the Left never addresses.
Did Pelosi ever regret passing Obamacare? Hint: No.
— Jason Epstein (@Southfive) September 20, 2022
Pelosi is on the opposite side of the aisle but has a very similar process to McConnell. They both run long games and never apologize. No matter which way you look at it, Obamacare was considered a BIG WIN on the left, just as helping produce the current SCOTUS is should be a win for McConnell.
I didn’t realize Trump and McConnell were on the court. Did they slip in the backdoor to vote? Did they wander in under an invisibility cloak? https://t.co/VLZ4CSOtA3

He got 3 SCOTUS justices and kept Clinton out of the WH. If the Senate stays at 50-50, or even if he loses a seat or two, he won’t regret it. Why would he?

Keeping Hillary Clinton out of the White House is a huge accomplishment. We aren’t sure that full credit should be given to McConnell, but we do agree that he helped.
The conservatives have the court because Harry Reid did away with the judicial filibuster https://t.co/FC9dZz45xR
— Heist (@DrKBorysenko) September 21, 2022
Without Harry Reid (D) removing the judicial filibuster, the SCOTUS appointments, the left is so angry about probably would not have happened. They like to forget that pesky little fact as well.
show you don’t understand the conservative movement without telling me you don’t understand the conservative movement https://t.co/Vhfn8zdR8r

The SCOTUS does not and should not base its decisions on politics. It should base them on the constitution, which it did in Dobbs. Garland has completely politicized the DOJ, which confirms that he was unfit for the SCOTUS. We dodged a bullet thanks to McConnell. https://t.co/t3crCXkHFi

Most media don’t understand the conservative movement and they simply don’t care. The narrative is the abortion ruling was bad and conservatives are EVIL fascists. That will continue to be the narrative no matter what information is placed before them.
I don’t think a parallel universe exists where Cocaine Mitch regrets that move. https://t.co/BDY2kuIlRI

We know that it can sometimes get annoying and depressing watching the media cover only one side of things, but keep living your life, keep poking fun at the insanity, keep reading Twitchy, and keep living like Mitch: WITH NO REGRETS.
