I said it when they did it to Garland and I'll say it now...the SCOTUS should not be used as a political weapon and it's a crying shame to see how partisan it's become.[/QUOTE]


Agree!

Whatever the outcome, this is not good for our country.

100% necessary. A guilty man doesn't do what he's doing right now. The Dems look like fools and will double down when they question him, but what else is new.

Heís going to get confirmed and then there needs to be an investigation into all those people making up allegations and lies at the 11th hour for some serious repercussions.

A witch hunt pure and simple by the left. The votes they need to worry about in this are Flake, Murkowski and that other flaky lady, forget her name. No proof and i truly hope he get voted in, but if not someone needs to go after everyone on the left that has been accused of this same stuff.

There is one failsafe way to guarantee him getting voted into the Supreme Court. Trump needs to say if he is not voted in, he will release every name, Dem or Rep that has used taxpayer money to pay off sexual assault claims that serve in Congress.

Just when you think American politics has reached the bottom of the barrel and has gotten so disgusting that it couldn't possibly get any worse, they prove you wrong....again. It's no wonder there are so few decent people in politics. The utterly evil people are so unimaginably horrible and disgusting that, no matter how crooked they are in their political positions and how badly we need to get rid of them, who in his/her right mind would want to sign up to be a part of such a corrupt and vile circus?

Prayers up for Judge Kavenaugh, his wife and kids, and for our great nation. It's just hard to even comprehend how bad our political system has become.

For his sake and the intention of our founders' sake, I certainly hope not. Its thinking like this that has gotten us into this mess to begin with. Partisanship for any SCOTUS justice should never factor into the equation. To quote Ben Sasse:

Quote:
And thus, a fourth and final point. The solution here is not to try to find judges who will be policy makers. The solution is not to try to turn the Supreme Court into an election battle for TV. The solution is to restore a proper constitutional order with the balance of powers. We need Schoolhouse Rock back. We need a Congress that writes laws and then stands before the people and suffers the consequences and gets to back to our own Mount Vernon, if thatís what the electors decide. We need an executive branch that has a humble view of its job as enforcing the law, not trying to write laws in the Congressí absence. And, we need a judiciary that tries to apply written laws to facts in cases that are actually before it.

This is the elegant and the fair process that the founders created. Itís the process where the people who are elected two and six years in this institution, four years in the executive branch can be fired because the justices and the judges, the men and women who serve Americaís people by wearing black robes ó theyíre insulated from politics. This is why we talk about an independent judiciary. This is why they wear robes. This is why we shouldnít talk about Republican and Democratic judges and justices. This is why we say justice is blind. This is why we give judges lifetime tenure.

Partisanship has already taken place the day the Democrats made up their mind to oppose this guy from the get-go. I believe Kavanagh will follow the Constitution of the United States of America and that alone is enough for the democrats to view his rulings as partisanship imo.

If you were undecided which way to vote come November just watch his opening statement and his responses to Feinstein and your mind will be made up.
