No surprises in who voted against him. Its the usual list of obstructionists & liberal panders including Turbin Durbin, Kennedy, Kerry, Clinton, Cantwell, and pair of unionheads from Hawaii.

My two senators were no surprise. What an embarrassment.

With any luck we will get a new Republican Senator and Governor.

Among the DemocRATS, it was the moonbats and presidential hopefuls who voted against. Evan Bayh, D-IN, who gave Roberts a backhanded introduction at the hearings (slipped in after the proceedings had begun and sat at the opposite end of the table so they couldn't be photographed togehter), voted NAY. IMO, he's the biggest threat in '08, not Her Royal Heinous.

You were right. I double-checked the roll call and Murray did vote "Yay". I'm surprised! (Though most of the 'Rats who voted for Roberts only did so because he was going to win approval no matter what).

Lemme guess - my RAT representatives - Lousenberg and Boring - voted against the mainstream of America.

I hate it when the Media rats have been allowed to define mainstream.The majority of the voting public voted for George Bush. That same voting public overwhelmingly agree that judges should not legislate from the bench, believe in In God We Trust, are OK with a moment of silence in public schools, do not think same sex marriage is protected by the constition and, do not believe in partial birth abortion.Yet - these positions are presented by the Media RATS as extreme and the opposite of these beliefs are presented as mainstream.

John Roberts was and will be a mainstream jurist - our PR efforts for the next nominee need to be presented as such.

Connecticut.

Blue-as-blue-state gets.

Two Democrat Senators, one just re-elected, the other in absolutely no danger of ever being defeated.

Old bulls of the Democratic Party.

Chris Dodd - yea.
Joe Lieberman - yea.

I have observed that the Democratic politicians of this Land of Steady Habits are Liberal as Liberal can be, but are usually not crazy.

Would any other state in New England actually EXECUTE somebody who desperately needed it?
Connecticut did.

I can stand Connecticut Democrats. Perhaps the state is just too rich to be too nuts.

I was thinking the same thing. I have not been here long enough to have a really good handle on what they'll do tho.
I'm just glad my Rep is not a Senator instead. I hang my head in shame about him all the time.

Let's hope that Jim Burling was wrong about Roberts perspective on property rights, as he wrote in that article.

Many in Florida have done well, very well, off of abusing the property rights of the citizenry. When a Liberal like Nelson votes for a man who shares Jeb's view that we have enough property rights protections already, I get acutely nervous.

But, the brothers Bush seem to have a much better understanding of politics than I or the Democrats have.

Wouldn't it be nice if Roberts was more of an originalist than his action in Nevada indicated?
