CLINTON: What I would like to see is a democratic majority that actually has the chance to make that choice right now the Democrats have very few tools at their disposal to stop the Republicans from going full speed ahead and engaging in the kind of unprecedented behavior as they did with the Garland nomination. So Im not in favor of either unilateral disarmament or defcon-10. I think there has to be some effort to try to get back to regular order, try to get back to having a system, a process in place so that we are not subjected to the hardball behavior of the Republicans that we saw in the Garland nomination, and were not subject to the outrageous denial of the information that was requested on Kavanaugh. I mean, there cant be one set of rules for Democrats and one set of rules for Republicans. Thats one of the reasons why people dont have any confidence in the Congress. How can you? You dont know whats going to happen from day to day. I remember back in the Thomas hearing when senator bird was asked what he was going to do, and he said in a situation like this we should give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country. And thats what the Republicans should be doing right now, from the White House down Pennsylvania avenue to the Senate, give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country. And that means have an investigation that will then lead to a hearing that will then lead to a vote if appropriate. And instead, they are playing the hardest of hardballs to try to pack the court with, you know, another nominee, regardless of the questions. Remember, Rachel, there were lots of questions raised in the hearing itself about some of his testimony, some of the statements he had made when he was first confirmed for the circuit court, and then additional statements. So there were already reasons to doubt the testimony and the positions that he was taking as well as substantive issues that are fair game for senators to explore.
Now do Juanita Broderick.
No she doesn’t. She’s an unmitigated fraud and ought to be put in stocks and egged by the townsfolk.
No, the accused deserve the assumption of innocence you hypocrite.
Oh, that’s rich.
Coming from the woman who sent goon squads after the women her husband assaulted.
The Dems have something further up their sleeve. Im sure of it.
Sorry, can’t read no paragraph stuff.
There are a lot of Trump supporters who tolerated, so far, Republicans half-assing moving Trump's agenda and not doing anything to lift a finger to move the conservative on their own, or even standing up for Trump. We've even been patient on the wall.
This right here is one of those battles that will decide the outcome of the war. If Kavanaugh is not confirmed, then NO strict constitutionalist will ever get nominated to the bench.
All of SCOTUS nominees will have to be approved by the left-wing mob.
“At this point, what difference does it make”?
Bingo!!! Best post of the day, worthy of your handle.
Proving that alcohol kills brain cells, this twice-beaten candidate for the presidency invites the inevitable question, Then why were we not supposed to believe Juanita Broadrick and Paula Jones?
The benefit of the doubt goes to the accused, not the accuser.
Hitlery would be wise.....very wise, just to STFU.
Nobody takes this rotten cabbage stench of skank seriously anymore.
Paula Jones? Juanita Broaddrick? Kathleen Willey? Didn’t they deserve the benefit of the doubt?
Gee Hill why did Bills accusers NOT deserve the benefit of the doubt???? They were ALL trailer park trash according to YOU and James Carville!!!
