After the past ten years of watching National politics it is quit obvious that today there is one set of rules for the democrats and another for the rest of us..........Rest easy pigs...........your mud covered hides have one more week to make fools of yourselves......congratulations....
It won`t make a difference, we can spare 1 week. I like that Flake said "scope limited to Blasey-Ford" and a hard week deadline. The nutty liberals won`t think it`s enough boo hoo hoo, and not one vote will change because no one including Blasey-Ford thinks Kav is guilty after that emotional testimony ...it`s about killing babies, grabbing guns, free healthcare and dragging more Mexicans in. Why the Left goes so nuts over those 4 issues, I don`t know, but that`s what this is all about.
The halfway sensible middle America saw Chairman Grassley bent over backwards to be fair and now we even add a week to further investigate just for really good measure. The Left is the one`s being unreasonable and making a s s es out of themselves and hopefully undecided voters are paying attention.
Oh I know bimbos will be coming out of the woodwork everyday next week, but that would happen anyway, even if the FBI proved totally that Blasey-Ford`s story was bogus. This will haunt Kav for the next 40yrs if we last that long. Nox will call him a "rapist" even if Jesus Christ came down a told Nox that wasn`t the case. Just the environment that we live in.
I say fine too............I think the left may be setting a trap for themselves.........just as they always do.
The left will trot out more as soon as the weeks about over. Then in "fairness" those will have to investigated. They want to get to midterm elections.
Here`s the problem though, Rodger...mathematics, we need Flake, Collins and MurKowsky. See, Flake can get on his high horse and the Republican party can threaten him but he`ll say "I don`t care, in a few months I`m out of here for good!". And the 2 hens fancy themselves as Joan of Arc reincarnated, they`d maybe see it as a badge of honor as voting against Kav.
However delaying it a week, the problem might not be bimbos coming out of the woodwork as much as crazy women in pushy hats cornering senators in elevators to get them to vote against Kav. My advice to Repubs that don`t have a backbone is to go into "witness protection" because 1 week can be an eternity.
I think the mistake that everyone is now making is that they are assuming that Jeff Flake, Susan Collins, Ben Sass, and Lisa Murkowski are all part of the same Republican Party as the one affiliated with President Donald J. Trump. Recent evidence suggests that this is no longer so. If John McCain were alive and voting today, I might include the mavericks name onto this list of old order Republicans as well.
Every agreed upon delay and every day that goes by in the Kavanaugh confirmation process seems to make it more and more clear that this is much less about Brett Kavanaugh (or anyone else who might replace him), as it is about letting the "Never Trumper old order Republicans" in the senate put a shiv into anything that remotely looks like a political victory for Trump.
In other words, these old order types will publicly wring their collective hands in anguish for the benefit of their voting constituents, but will then quickly fall in line with Spartacus Booker, Richard (Vietnam war hero, almost) Blumenthal, Kamala Harris, Diane Feinstein,and the rest of the senate Democrats in order to kill Trump's nominee. Nothing personal Brett or Mrs. K. It is just politics.
If I am correct, then no Trump SCOTUS nominee, now or in the future will ever pass muster for RINO's like Flake and company. Democrats, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and Wall Street all hate Trump because he had the unmitigated gall to defeat their best girl, Hillary back in 2016. Republican elites, however, hate Trump just as much for the unforgivable sin of stealing their party away from them. For these crimes, Trump must pay.
Let the games continue.
I like that Flake said "scope limited to Blasey-Ford"
That is not what news here reports. Is that just one of your 'beliefs'?
The Senate Judiciary Committee asked the White House to ask the FBI to conduct the supplemental investigation, which will be “limited to current credible allegations” and must be done by Oct. 5.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has questioned Kavanaugh and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, and other potential witnesses have submitted sworn statements. But FBI agents could interview the other accusers and witnesses and gather additional evidence or details.
Flake said that he will vote for Kavanaugh after a 1 week FBI investigation that`s limited in scope, he said that yesterday at about noon before the senate committee was voting on taking Kavanaugh`s nomination to a full senate vote.
Well, Collins and Murkowsky jumped on board as well as a few possible Democrat votes like Manchin and Heidikamp. Trump agreed with it and McConnel did too. Flake was mobbed by the crazy women in the elevator and this appeased them (the one week investigation, this will be the 7th FBI investigation in case anyone`s counting).
But this is what has to be done because Flake as the deciding vote gets away with demanding it and being on the last stretch of his lame duck term, there`s nothing we can do with him....he gets his way. But if he does follow through with his end of the bargain, it isn`t an unreasonable demand.
It`s important to be limited to 1 week or it becomes a delay tactic...oh you libs won`t be happy with it and want MOAR! but that is the bargain. And investigation limited to the Blasey-Ford deal! If there`s new crap about Kav writing bouncey checks in 1989 or stealing cigars in 1985 or some such similar crap I don`t wanna hear it! It`s 1 week about Blasey-Ford and THEN we approve Kav and done with it for 40yrs and then I`m dead and won`t give a damned any more 🙂
