They Said It!: Sens. Ted Kennedy (D-MA), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), And Former Sen. Bill Bradley (D-NJ) On Samuel Alito
(title shortened for length)
SEN. TED KENNEDY (D-MA): You Have Obviously Had A Very Distinguished Record, And I Certainly Commend You For Long Service In The Public Interest. I Think It Is A Very Commendable Career And I Am Sure You Will Have A Successful One As A Judge. (Sen. Ted Kennedy, Committee On The Judiciary, U.S. Senate, Hearing, 4/5/90)
SEN. FRANK LAUTENBERG (D-NJ): I Believe Mr. Alito Has The Experience And The Skills To Be The Kind Of Judge The Public Deserves One Who Is Impartial, Thoughtful, And Fair. I Urge The Senate To Confirm His Nomination. (Sen. Frank Lautenberg, Congressional Record, 4/27/90, p. S5281)
FORMER SEN. BILL BRADLEY (D-NJ): [T]he Confirmation Of Sam Alito As U.S. Attorney For New Jersey Is Testimony To The Commitment He Has Shown And The Success Of His Efforts As A Law Enforcement Official. I Am Confident That He Will Continue To Do All He Can To Uphold The Laws Of This Nation With The Kind Of Determination And Vigor That Has Been His Trademark In The Past. (Sen. Bill Bradley, Congressional Record, 12/8/87, p. S17427)
I had heard that he was unanimously confirmed to his current seat.
Well this should be interesting to watch .. who's got the popcorn?
Teddy... Teddy... Teddy...
I can just hear him later today.
Teddy: "I was drunk at the time (duh) that I made those statements!"
I'm ready to rumble! Bring it on!
That was then, this is now.
Yes, but the O-Big-Wan Kennedy also said,
"It is a standard tactic to take someones proposal, misstate it, and then disagree with it. Its very effective. Ive used it myself.
No doubt the Lyin' Liberal from Massachusetts will sharpen his skills. Or they will be sharpened for them.
"In Justice Alito's America back- alley abortions.."
We all know that he is a tool of the Radical Right Wing of the party. He wants to turn back the clock...He wants to stop blacks from voting...blah blah blah
You all know the rest!
Senate starts @ 2pm BTW
We'll hear them flip-flopping soon.
I'll be eagerly listening as I'm carving my pumpkins for Halloween
Cool! I'd like to see Bush and other notable Pubbies repeat these statements every day till Alito is confirmed.
I'm sure the MSM will hold their feet to the fire now and constantly remind the American people that they all supported him in the past. :-)
Aren't any "front alleys" in America?
You got it, Senator "Chubby-Chops" will think of something rude to say about Judge Alito.
I head Cornyn on Fox about an half ago repeating Lautenberg's statements.
