Roberts nominated 13-5 vote
C-span 3 | 21 Sept 2005 | EDCOIL

Posted on 09/22/2005 9:52:02 AM PDT by edcoil

I am watching a Cspan 3 of the vote. Hard to read the screen but it looks like a 12 to 5 vote for Roberts to be Chief Justice.

The C-Span site shows an O vote beside Brownback - I don't know what that means... And no vote at all for Coburn.

Boxer didn't need a reason to vote against Roberts...She simply votes her dementia.

feinstein knows where her bread is buttered, from the California left kook base.

boxer will also vote no when Robert's nomination comes on to the full Senate floor.

Usual suspects in other words. The only two times that Kennedy can mudder the word "yes" is when someone say: "Anyone for a drink?" or "Free Cheeseburgers!"

Hmmm. I had assumed that Schumer would vote to approve him, based on his closing statement during the hearing. I guess I was wrong.

You may be confusing Herb Kohl (D-WI) with Jon Kyl (R-AZ).

A NO from Biden suprises me.

Biden comes across as a man who wants to tell everyone what they want to hear -- a big brown nose. Well, a brown nose uutil he's dealing with someone powerless - then I'll bet he's a real jerk. Biden's type's so common he's almost a walking a cliché.

"Both Wisconsin Democrats (Kohl, Feingold) vote for Roberts. Why?"

Catholic thing. I think it has alot to do with the catholic vote in Wisconsin. I must admit I am surprised since Feingold usually is on the loony left.

These rabid beasts are unfit to hold public office. Roberts is 10000x more intelligent and thoughtful than any of them, and they just can't bear it.....
