I think they're voting on another bill. The Judiciary Committee is in recess.

I thought Kennedy lampbasted a few Republicans during Clintons years about speaking out how they were voting AGAINST Clintons appointees BEFORE the Vote!...accusing THEM of trying to ' RailRoad the Vote" into Negative thinking territory--

yet Kennedy and the rest here ALREADY stated the last few days they were voting NO on Roberts!--same thing-

Yeah - he didn't say anything that she could actually object to.

as "the only woman on the committee,"

Feinstein seems overly wrapped up in the fact that she has a vagina.

Must every public pronouncement she ever makes be prefaced by a statement regarding her gender? I guess she realizes that alot of people aren't exactly sure.

Feinstein is a hostage to the DNC kook set. How sad for her.

On behalf of all cubicle dwellers, if this is not a vote on Roberts, please click the Report Abuse link at the top of Post #1 and have this thread deleted.

FYI..format is that each senator will have as much as 10 minutes to speak..to annoucne their position..then the formal vote will be taken after..all this will be interrupted several times by recesses for floor votes..so..expect the final vote around 1 PM..

If, as expected , Feinstein and Schmer vote NO..it's very hard for Hillary to for AYE...also,..the MSM, covering Reid's speech, all forgot to mention that Roberts was on the list that Reid told W that he would NOT object to...

The only way Cindy will stay in the news after this week is to disappear in Aruba.

That won't do it. She's too old.

Sounds like they did not finish the vote out of committee???

I don't think I can bear to watch the DEMS try to damage Roberts...or set themselves up for the next vote!

Feinstein is the Senator from NARAL. She is one of only a handful of Senators who have a career 100% voting record for NARAL and Planned Parenthood. She has been pretty successful at keeping this quiet and portraying herself as a "moderate" Democrat, but when it comes to abortion she is a radical leftist. She will never vote for a Supreme Court justice nominated by a Republican president.

Good point. Most of us had probably forgotten about that remark. I know I had.

Thanks for the reminder.

Has the vote started or are we in the "bloviating" stage of this wonderful dog and pony show?

It's a disgrace to the nation that the vote is not 18-0.

Committee Today
[Kathryn Jean Lopez 09/22 10:17 AM]

Some additional coverage in The Corner. DiFi is a no on Roberts. Kohl, according to AP is a yes: "Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., will vote to confirm John Roberts for chief justice, his office said in a brief statement Thursday."

Wisconsin has two dim senators on the judiciary committee. Today, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial urges them to "take a chance and give [Roberts] their support."

I darn near choked on my donut reading that.

This is the speechifying stage..where they get 10 minutes each to explain how/why they will vote..the actual roll call vote should be about 1 PM..give or take..

Roberts made all the Democrats look like mental midgets. He'll be confirmed. They will have to live with him for the next 30 years. Heh.

I considered your suggestion and have decided no. This is the live thread. The Senate is voting on a bill right now and the Judiciary Committee, as noted a few posts up, is making speeches now. The actual vote will happen later. Be patient.

Barring Arkencide, the appointment of Chief Justice Roberts should scuttle any aspirations of either Clinton getting that job.
