Meet the Press certainly has a "balanced" lineup. LOL

Duncan Hunter is going to be the sole sane voice on that panel.

Meet the Press will be on at 8am EDT because of Tennis.

Isn't it nice of the Peacock channel to present both sides of the SCOTUS battle...Liberal Democrats and RINO Liberal Republicans.

Darn it, I'll be on the road, and will miss what might be shaping up as the most hilarious line-up of idiots ever fielded for a Sunday.

Hope all FReepers have a safe and patriotic holiday weekend, and remember our president and our troops.

"We expect the President to obey the Constitution and solicit the advice of Senators from both parties (blah blah blah) in order to choose a Supreme Court Justice who is in the mainstream (blah blah blah) and not an extremist like Scalia or Thomas (blah blah blah.)"

Okay, I just saved you three hours of your life. Go have a catch with your kids, light the barbecue or read a book. You won't hear anything but the talking points from the lefties (for a change.)

Talking point of the day prediction...

It is "abuse of power" for the president to pick whomever he pleases to fill the Supreme Court position. Will also attempt to further redefine "advise and consent".

Republicans don't have the right people out there today for this. Incredulity should be the Republican response of the day. Since when is it an abuse of power for the president to carry out his constitutional responsibility?

Morning AB and thanks again for the thread, even vacations cant stop the Sunday Morning Talk Show thread!

Looks like a pretty sad lineup, almost wish I went fishing today instead of yesterday, but not really. I guess the big question will be how much a of a rant the rats will do about picking a new justice.

Wanna bet no matter who GW picks......it'll be the wrong choice for the Socialist rats.

With Republican majorities in the House, Senate, governorships and the Presidency, Senator Kennedy will declaim as his "BS de Resistance" that Americans want Supreme Court justices who are mainstream libs.

I was thinking the same thing. MTP gets to say it had balance since it has (R)s as guests, but is it really fair and balanced when the (R)s are RINOs?

I'm off TV / Cable / political talk until the whole Supreme Show is over. I can NOT stand the 'Rat rants anymore. If I want to hear remarks about how horrible the US is, I can turn to two places: the 'RATs on the tube or the terrorists on Al Jazeera. I'm interested in neither. It upsets and hurts me when I hear people who've benefitted from the freedom and
wealth of our country, trying to destroy it for their own power meglamania. I wish we had a channel which weren't 'fair and balanced' but rather limited itself to those who love the USA so that I could view it. Until that is available, I'm netflixing and reading only.

Leahy wants a nominee who will "unite" the country (dem talking point). Now what does that mean? Since when is that the job of a supreme court justice.

Andrea Mitchell, asking Spectator why the Pres doesn't pick someone "moderate". Poor arlen, obviously suffering from chemo, he seems to be under some allusion that Leaky Leahy is working "with" him, some never learn.

Leahy is setting this up for a filibuster. Not good to have a Justice who only gets 51 votes. Doesn't want extreme right or left. How about Buzzy Ginsberg???

I found it interesting that Greenspan/Mitchell comes right out of the rat/hole tryng to eliminate and demonize, if possible, ATT. Gen. Gonzales. They are mighty afraid of Alberto. No conservatives allowed!!

Leahy just made the quote of the day do far.

"We aren't asking these questions just for "ourselves" but for the 280 million people we represent"

I think his nose is beginning to grow.

I find it interesting the demonization of Gonzales by both the right and the left. The right apparently is under the impression he is not very conservative, while the left thinks he is.

I am beginning to wonder if there isn't a group of stealth Rats fomenting the idea that Gonzalez isn't conservative. Seems to me that anyone who worked as closely with the President on the issues of theWOT would not be a leftist.

Also, there is a fair amount of anti-Hispanic feeling on both sides, whicih is contributing to this controversy, IMHO.

I don't think Gonzalez will be the nominee, however. If he were, he would be called to recuse himself from any decisions in which he had participated as Counsel or AG. In addition, I don't think the President wants to face both a fight for the Supreme Court AND a fight for a new AG. If he were considering putting Gonzalez in the SC, I don't think the President would have nominated him to the AG position.

"We aren't asking these questions just for "ourselves" but for the 280 million people we represent"

There is the set up for asking how they'll rule on Roe and any other inappropriate question they can think of. Anybody there to represent dead babies? I think the best the dems have right now is to get a stealth candidate like Kennedy who can be wooed by the left. I don't think the President is going to give it to them. Why should he care if they all choose to shoot themselves in the foot? And about holding up the rights of the people, what about the right not to have your property taken for a "private" purpose.

I assume he means "unite the Libs" because all of his favorites have p--ssed off the rest of us. He looks like the "Ancient Mariner" and rather disheveled lately like Kennedy. I do not know why Russert and Co always want to talk to someone who is so incoherent.

Andrea Mitchell makes me miss Tim Russert. What a blatant liberal hack! She prefaces a question about interest groups already gearing up, and you assume for sure she'd talk about the left-wing groups and their mouthpiece, Ted Kennedy. Instead, the only reference she makes is to a conservative group, and holds up today's NY Times, echoing its point about such groups gearing up to support a conservative nominee and opposing Gonzales.

Then she virtually pleads with Leahy to support a filibuster should W nominate "a hard-liner," meaning presumably someone who supports the original intent of the Framers.

That's an excellent quote Anita.

We are in the majority, lets act like it for a change!! The hell with PC isms.

Mornin, Miss Marple. FOX & Friends had a woman (Kay Daly) on saying there should not be any litmus test, and nominees for SCOTUS isn't the place to play politics. I hope Republican Senators take that response to heart and expose Democrats when they do it.
