Kavanaugh will probably not be confirmed now

Recommended Posts

It really is funny when you think about it. Trump rides to the white house on the shoulders of the common man, and one of his biggest acts, appointing SCOTUS judge, and he has appointed to guys who went to the same rich elite all boys boarding school in DC. At least Gorsuch left the cozy confines of DC to go west. But fucking Kavanaugh has been an insider swamp creature his whole career.

 

Other than these two, I don't think there is a single other Judge on the Court that comes from an elitist background. All of them grew up in either humble backgrounds, or at least middle class where they can relate. Kagan is the only one that comes close - I think her dad was a lawyer in NYS and her mom taught school. Roberts, Alito, Sotomayor, Thomas, etc. all have compelling backgrounds.

 

I think it is important for SCOTUS justices to be able to identify with what regular Americans go through, personally. You can't get any less regular American than Kavanaugh. But OMG he coaches his daughter's soft ball team and hates abortion! That's enough for me!

Oh really?  How about the libtards have done EVERYTHING to make a shambles of this preceding to the point it looks like a 3rd world country.  Nice try moron. 

I see you are unfamiliar with the Thomas and Bork confirmation hearings.

 

Third World country. Only thing third world about it is how quickly they have tried to rush this one through.

 

lol take a deep breath Sox, your anti-abortion elitist Washington swamp creature will slither his way on the Court in the end. You'll see.

He doesn't believe a sitting president should be investigated, that's the only reason Trump picked him. Funny enough after being all in on the Clinton impeachment

In the end, the best the Dems can likely hope for is to delay past the midterm elections. That would mean Dem Senators in red states don’t have to be on record voting for or against Trump's candidate. Even if Kavanaugh goes down over this, Trump will just appoint some other conservative justice.

 

The only exception is if the Dems win a Senate majority in November. It’s unlikely, but not impossible. Then they could refuse to let Trump seat a new justice. And even that would depend on Kavanaugh withdrawing or losing a confirmation vote.

I was trying to think otherwise, but after reading through Woodward's book, I have to agree.  Trump is just blatant, amoral and narcissistic as hell. a 3D chess move for Trump = what's in it for Donald, Donald, and Donald.

Nothing is funnier or more ironic than Republicans crying about the confirmation process of nominating a Supreme Court Justice 

Nothing shows how big of hypocrites the left are in screaming about Garland.

There is no comparison between the democrats under Bush and the Republicans under Obama whatsoever. Thanks for admitting you were out there flinging that shit though, not that we needed you to.
