Sen. Joseph Biden told Ginsburg, "You not only have a right to choose what you will answer and not answer, but in my view you should not answer a question of what your view will be on an issue that clearly is going to come before the court in 50 forms probably, over your tenure on the court."

Chuckie is not going to get away with badgering our nominee with those types of questions.

.....declined to give her views on Roe v. Wade, on the Second Amendment, on the death penalty, on the Voting Rights Act, on race-based congressional redistricting, and on adoption rights for gay couples, among many other issues.

I believe Hatch's IQ is - top end - 75/76. Nearly retarded. How could he have given Ginsberg a pass. He did this country a grave disservice.

Well we should be able to record a lot of sound-bites to use against the rats in the 2006 congressional elections.

From what I'm reading Roberts will be the smartest person in the room and can handle Teddy and his pals without any help from Hatch or anyone else.

Ginsburg, in particular, received something of a bye from Republicans despite her former position as general counsel of the American Civil Liberties Union; had they chosen to, Republicans could have hung every extreme ACLU position around Ginsburg's neck...

...Instead, "Sen. Hatch put an orderly and fair process above scoring political points," says one high-ranking staffer involved at the time.

So Orrin Hatch is to blame for "leading" the GOP voting to approve Ruth Satan-Ginsburg on the SCOTUS?

As with the fillibuster "deal," the "process" and insitution of the Senate is far more important than the country to these self-absorbed nincompoops.

"Republicans also chose not to oppose Ginsburg even though she refused to answer dozens of questions during her confirmation hearings."

Roberts should read a transcript of Darth Vader Ginsburg's testimony and parrots her responses word for word.

I've seen clips of John Roberts and his confirmation...he did cite Ginsburg when he was not going to answer those particular questions.

Roberts nailed those senators over and over again. His confirmation hearings will be lots of fun...he'll nail all of them against the wall...he knows just how to do it.

Hey Doug have you heard todays political grapeview by Brit Hume.

You will not believe the story on Moyers. Seems when he was in the White House (LBJ) he sent out a memo asking the FBI to hunt down dirt on the Goldwater campaign staff regarding homosexuality.

Moyers claimed it was not true, so the guy investigating it said that he would investigate and when he was proven he did not send the memo he would clear his name Moyers backed off his claim and is said to have said something like, "I was so young, how would my wife understand.

BTW, this is not an active case.

Yeah, like that's ever going to happen.

That was a Democrat president nominating far left wing justices. Different rules apply.
