One and only Kavenaugh Hearings Thread


#475

He seems ok. What kind of racist is he?


#476

No “they” didn’t, unless of course you mean the Senate as a body in terms of “they” and can point to the vote?

Kavenaugh seems like a decent person and is eminently qualified.

The Senate should approve based on his qualifications, not who the President is that nominated him.

#478

He is a big believer in the Constitution and very well read on all aspects of such.


#479

a vote, as established in precedent since 1828 is not required to advise. how the senate tells the potus to stuff it is up to them.


#480

Wrong

10 char


#481

denial means nothing.

i think i’ll stick to historical facts instead of your opinion.


#482

I haven’t stated an opinion. No precedent has been established.


#483

your denial is nothing but opinion. i have every time in history under the same circumstances the same thing was done save once. what do you have? denial only.


#484

No, it’s fact that the desperate attempt at painting an event that happened 150 years ago as a precedent for today is invalid.

Fact. No precedent exists for what McConnell did.

#486

Should be a simple matter to show:

When a Lame Duck President in their last year was able to get their SCOTUS nominee confirmed by a Senate majority from the opposing party.


#487

:rofl: did you read that?


#488

Obama wasn’t a lame duck. Most people don’t understand what that means.


#489

Anthony Kennedy, confirmed February 3, 1988 during Reagan’s last year as President when Dem’s held the majority of the Senate.

The Senate Should End Nomination Hearings for Current Session
#490

This is where the parsing starts (or rather, continues) and we get all sorts of caveats and conditions about why the “precedent” set nearly 200 years ago is the only one that means anything.


#491

Did you? emote face


#492

Obama was a lame duck president in his second term, as was every President before him.


#493

lol… a study in the slimes is no more than opinion. when you have historical facts… feel free


#494

There is no parsing. The seat was not vacated during an election year and the dem senate had already lost its Borking mind.
