That is a bit of a strange comment. I mean of course they’d want a judge that is nominated from their side rather than a judge that the dems nominated. How can you fault them for that? That’s literally what either party would do. And of course either party is pro party (or to be more accurate, more focused on their base) and not pro country (else they’d all be moderates and not left/right), that is just the sad truth of American politics these days. The only thing is that now the Repubs are the ones with the power to do so and the Dems are basically trying to stop them by any means necessary (though I feel the dems may have crossed a line here by taking mudslinging to the next level).
Nothing strange about it. The GOP dared Obama to pick Garland and he picked Garland just to show how partisan they are. When it was their time to step up they choose to ignore a pick both parties could agree to. Basically what I am saying is you only paid attention to politics when Trump became president then you probably should not be throwing out opinions as if this is anything new. The whole process was a sham from the beginning because the GOP had absolutely no intent of not confirming Kavanaugh. There is equal blame to throw around, neither of these parties are beyond anything when it comes to power. If you believe either one is better than the other you have not been paying attention for the last couple decades.
