Sure hope that Trump hasn't just nominated another Roberts...

When the FNC pundits are DROOLING over themselves, I can't help but think that the never Trumpers aka GOPe think they just won...

Kavanaugh also does not think that bulk metadata collection violates the 4th amendment...

www.nationalreview.com...

On first look, worried that this guy just might be a win for the swamp...

YMMV....

dccircuitbreaker.org... this link seems to be a complete list of all of Bret Kavanaughs decisions as a judge all 188 of them so if any one wants to try to get a good read on the nominee here may be a good place to start

After seeing that idiot’s picture for the 10 millionth time since Trump won, I just had a thought.
I am really surprised that CNN or MSNBC hasn’t made her an every night panelist for their Trump bashing extravaganzas.
She would make a good co-anchor with Maddow.

I just said in another thread . . . .

If people are going to interpret the Constitution to provide more freedoms, I would be behind that.

The Constitution was never meant to remove freedoms.


I only hope the Supremes feel the same way.

It's crazy how fast the narrative switched from "We can't separate kids from their parents when their parents break the law, it's cruel" to "It's a natural right to be able to murder kids!"

I have been researching him and I have the same concerns.
Not my first choice for sure.

My first choice was Barrett, because she was causing the most panic ahead of the announcement.

Welcome to the deranged fantasy land of the Leftist hypocrites.

Yea, when I saw Bush support this one I was thinking oh hell no.......guess we will have to wait for some SCOTUS decisions to see which tree he swings from?

Any potential advantage heading into the midterms, was just lost by this nominee..

IMO...

The hoopla will be short lived, and he will be confirmed well before it could be used by folks for an advantage in trying to get elected this NOV...

For me, that means a SAFE PICK for the SWAMP...

call me cynical

Any SCOTUS pick is a crap shoot. Let's be realistic about this.

Some of the off decisions you will see in an apellate court judge will be in deference to SCOTUS rulings though, so there is that.

Just keep telling yourself that it will be hard for this to be worse than something Her Majesty would have set us up with.

It is also possible that this guy is a stalking horse. They'll fight over him ... maybe even get him to withdraw and take time. Then the real pick comes out and gets through.

They all have a history.

It's not something they can hide.

As an independent/non-affiliated libertarian (social liberal, fiscal conservative) I'm not sure I like this pick, he seems way too partisan for me. Seems like a GOP pinch hitter.

I liked Kennedy, he was politically conservative but didn't allow his partisanship to sway his rulings.

THAT'S what I'm looking for in a SCOTUS pick. But in today's hyper political climate we're just not going to get that.

Just to keep it in perspective . . .

Yes, but judges have been known to suddenly change their stripes considerably when freed from the need to respect the rulings of higher courts too.

Can't see that scenario... this nominee was prescreened...

He will be CONFIRMED, after the obligatory left whinging...

What I am shocked by, is that he is being nominated to the bench after his disregard to the 4th amendment...

in regards to metadata gathering.... how the F can he get that WRONG, and still be considered Constitutional.. is beyond me..

but hey, I am just a citizen...

Ah, I get it.

This thread wasn't actually about discussing the nomination. Just another back patting party.

Sorry I intruded.
