“They suggest that he has demonstrated a potential bias involving enough potential litigants before the court that he would not be able to perform his full responsibilities,”

I said i never thought what may have happened in highschool should define him and his life's work

But his opening statement clearly exposed what was hidden behind the facade

yet those who complain about “Legislating from the Bench” Judicial activism' have or will seat a justice who will forever be tainted will a partistan Halo he himself revealed to the country and placed proudly on his own head.. go figure
It's funny no one reported when Stevens supported Kavanaugh, it only became a story when he opposed Kavanaugh. That tells you everything, and I mean everything, you need to know about the media.

The SCOTUS has been a liberal activist court for longer than I've been alive, since Ike put Earl Warren on there. That ends today.

You pronounce something propaganda, and the only argument or evidence you ever produce that's supposed to show it is propaganda is to post various leftist propaganda.

If you could coherently, in your own words, backed by facts not leftist opinion, show us that Jim has eaten the right's propaganda, it would be appreciated.

WDMSO, for decades the democrats have used the supreme court to ram their social agenda down our throats, when they haven't been able to get such things passed legislatively as they're supposed to do (abortion, gay marriage, etc).

That tool has been taken away from them. It's a huge deal, which is why they fought this so passionately, and why after not getting their way, their temper tantrum has been so bratty.

I disagree with the GOP agenda on big issues like gay marriage and the death penalty and the right to good healthcare (Detbuch and I have had heated disagreements on this, and the difference when disagreeing with him, is that he doesn't lob baseless insults, he supports his positions and he listens to what I'm saying, rather than listening to what MSNBC claims I'm saying), so no I don't thoughtlessly regurgitate right wing talking points. On what major issues, do you disagree with the democrats? Let's see who is more blindly partisan, and who is more of an independent thinker? Shall we?

here’s what you don’t understand, what you apparently are incapable of understanding. See, I get that Im not the only person who matters. I care about what happens to others, it’s called ‘empathy’, looknit up in the dictionary. So while I agree with you that it’s too late for me to be aborted, that doesn’t mean I’m not impacted by it. I have empathy for the millions of babies not born.

Same with the death penalty, I’m not going to commit a capital offnse, but I still would rather that people who do so, be allowed to live.

The list of senate seats up in November, could not have been more fortunate for the Republicans. If they let me pick which 33 seats would be up in 2018, I could not have picked a better list for the GOP, it's amazing how lucky they got. If the whole senate was up every 2 years, the GOP would be in serious trouble.
