TERM LIMITS! This circus wouldn’t exist if we had term limits and then maybe just maybe in the words of JFK; they wouldn’t be seeking a democratic or republican answer but the right answer.

I guess I missed the part where Merrick Garland’s integrity and reputation were destroyed on national TV.

Other than that, it’s still not really the same thing

Thank you for keeping Rhode Island the laughing stock of the United States.

I'm continually embarrassed this guy lives in my neighborhood.

Like TDF said
Blocking tactics of Garland were not even close to the last 2 weeks of character assasination I have witnessed by the Left and you are OK with that because Trump.

Gotta agree w/wdmso on this one.

Doesn't have anything to do w/Trump.

K sounds like he had a drinking problem back in HS and college (as many of us did) and kept bobbing and weaving when he was asked about it.

When asked about a 5 day delay to let the FBI open back up the background checks he looked like a deer in the headlights and refused to answer and kept stumbling around before saying "I'll do whatever the committee decides" when he knew Trump would never open up the investigation. To clear my name I'd want the FBI to take statements and if anyone lies let them go to jail (like Papadopolus and Flynn). W/o that there will always be talk about his assault.

His crying about Clinton and conspiracy theories was a joke and anyone with these crazy thoughts shouldn't on the court. How can he even pretend to rule fairly on a Dem now?

Too bad there aren't SCOTUS term limits.

Tactics are just that. bullets or bombs one is not more honorable than the other

not sure how the right can even complain about character assassination it's been in their play book for decades and used committed daily by Trump from an article

Trump has insulted over the last few years. He has insulted former President Obama with his birtherism charge. He has insulted Gold Star families. He has insulted the late honorable U.S. Sen. John McCain. He has insulted Bill and Hillary Clinton. He has insulted his fellow party members who sought the GOP nomination for President — Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush. He has insulted Mexicans, Muslims and women. He even insults and attacks his own Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. He has insulted both GOP leaders, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, and Democratic members of Congress.

He even at one point insulted his Ambassador to the United Nations back when she stood up to remove Confederate statues, when he said, “The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley.” He has attacked U.S. companies and corporation. He has insulted the leaders of our our allied countries. And, of course he has consistently attacked the “fake media.” none of based on truth if this isn't a form character assassination not sure what is


Again the right assumes those women are liars in a grand conspiracy

Do I think what happened in Highschool should have any bearing on his life's work.. no I do not

But please his party sowed the seeds and they served him up as a sacrificial lamb .. they though the Dem were going to lay down as always and they did not

and nationally 43 percent oppose, 38 percent support this was before all this drama .. hence the rush to push him thru before the midterms the GOP can't have both ways

This.

I was astonished with his partisan attacks and claiming conspiracy theories. As I said weeks ago, he's a plant. The Republicans refusal to investigate a credible accusation is quite telling.

Most people react with emotion when falsely accused of a serious crime.

Not all accusers are correct in the recollection of who it was that harmed them.

case in point https://www.nbcnews.com/specials/the...homas-webb-iii


Term limits would be great Bob, get your Rep and Senators to back a bill to get this rolling, I fully support that and don't understand why it was not implemented when the term limits for POTUS was put in place.

enjoying something is not necessarily a problem, are you calling him an alcoholic?

And I suppose if you were in his shoes, you could perform much better in that job interview from hell.


Paul, none of us have any control of this sad situation but if this charade can be allowed it sets a bad precedent moving forward.

Term Limits
People could then make wise decisions not political ones
Remember 3 members of the Judiciary committee were in the same seats for Clarence Thomas 27 years ago
That is a #^&#^&#^&#^&ing long time ago

Pete
In life, it's important to know when to stop arguing with people and simply let them be wrong.

I don't know but he did seem to have a drinking problem back in hs and college. Reports of passing out and not remembering things.
And I suppose if you were in his shoes, you could perform much better in that job interview from hell.If I was in his shoes I would be screaming holy he=ll to have the FBI investigate and put everyone under oath. - Yet he refused to say he would do that when given numerous opportunities.


Paul, none of us have any control of this sad situation but if this charade can be allowed it sets a bad precedent moving forward.
So why was it a charade other than the committee refusing to call people to testify that could answer the various unanswered questions people have?

I don't think it is up to him to have the FBI get involved so why should he ask for more delays

the piling on with accusations is farcicle


His qualifications are more than adequate, I am sick of our government arguing among themselves and not getting work done to appoint people to jobs.

But now he will forever be branded that he tried to rape someone. He could have cleared his name by requesting that Trump open up the investigatation but everytime he was asked to do so he dodged the question.

the piling on with accusations is farcicle How do we know what is true and what is not w/o an investigation?

He may be qualified but being qualified doesn't mean you automatically get to be a justice.

They can wait a week, it's not up to us, it is up to those on the panel so I guess it's their fight and the minority is clawing and scratching at desperation in case it's not plain to see.

Sheldon really swayed me yesterday...after his remarkable performance I've decided I'm definitely voting for him in November....he's really raised his stature and profile among the democrats and I want America to be able to see this maroon as one of the leading faces of the democrat party for as long as and as often as possible

Oh so now he is a rapist?
Accused attempted rapist possibly if he is convicted, then yes

No, they are paranoid he will be a Trump puppet, Booker even said so
They are paranoid Roe vs Wade will get over-ruled as if it has not already been addressed, I don't get it.
That is the desperation

And for anyone to not request an independent (FBI) party to investigate is blinded by partisianship.
