Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
The column from the Wall Street Journal (Dispatch Comment section Oct. 15) about Amy Coney Barrett's nomination is quite slanted.
The writer at least must be totally promoting a Republican point of view. The worry expressed in the article appears to accuse Dems of distorting the risks a court with Barrett on it (6-3 it is said) on it. There's no mention of Mitch stealing what should have been a hearing for President Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland, upon Scalia's death. All the screams from the Repubs revolved around "it's too close to a new president and that person has to make the placement on the court." And that Scalia's seat has to go to someone with his points of view, which was usually the extreme on the Republican side.
Nowhere in the column does it mention that the exact same situation and even more so has occurred with RGB's death, close to an election and that the president elected in 2020 should be the one to nominate and place a new SCOTUS justice.
