Then we keep filibustering until they put up someone more reasonable and to the center.

She is more center than the US Supreme Court member which she is replacing.

Are they going to ask questions or simply just send a through. Maybe we should get her flowers too.

A mid term election is coming up and a filibuster proof thingy with 41 senators just isn’t there in this case.

Most of the posters in this thread are from states who don’t even have Republican US Senators in their own states.

I have a Republican Senator. A very senior one. Thanks, you convinced me. It's time for him to go too.

We’re at war, she took actions against the military. That disqualifies her, period.

Do they two US Republican Senators? No they have Tom Harkin. Who is worse? Tom Harkin vs. Jon Kyle or John McCain?

I would suggest a paleontologist do some digging in the U.S. Senate. If they can find enough material to make one Conservative spine, I’ll be surprised. They would certainly get a front page out of Paleontology Today if they could.

(I realize paleontology probably isn’t the exact science, but I am so frustrated with the Republican party today, I don’t what else to compare them with, other than dinosaurs. The people we have there now are definitely pre-Jeffersonian, and possible pre-13th century England, maybe enen pre-Roman, or pre-Grecian.)

We’ve gone back a long ways to have no representation whatsoever from our Representatives. They do what they damn well please, and ignore us.

“It’s interesting that Obama’s choices for the Supreme Court have thin paper trails.”

Yes, deliberately lacking a paper trail. And how many times do you think she’ll refuse to respond to questions regarding issues that may come before the court? Obama is really trying to sell a pig in the poke with this one!

“I’m tired of seeing them surrender without a fight when our qualified nominees are totally destroyed by the democrat party. How long are we going to allow this to go on?”

It’s definitely time to turn up the heat on Republicans and let them know that we’re not going to put up with acting as if everything is a foregone conclusion.

No, Nelson is an asshole and I expect that from him. I do not expect that from someone who PORTRAYS himself to be a conservative, as Kyle does.

I actually voted for Sara Palin. The other part of HER ticket was irrelevant because McAmnesty would have done the same things as President For Life Barak Hussein Odumbo, only it would have taken longer.

Who on earth goes into a chess game, and telegraphs his intention to lose to his opponent, before the game even begins?

Wrong analogy.

The Republicans are not the opponents of the Democrats.

They are enablers.

” most who are critical are newbies and don’t declare what states they are from “

I am hardly a ‘newbie’, and I live in New Mexico, USA...

And I’m here to tell you and Ann Archy that I, personally, have cast my last ballot for a candidate I strongly disapprove of, just because he/she is ‘not a Democrat’...

If I can’t positively support a candidate, I’ll not pull the lever - IOW, I’ve reached the age where my personal integrity trumps ‘rah-rah’ political games....

So sue me....

Agree with your point of view when it comes to the final vote for office. We, as conservatives, need to be more of a force in the selection of the candidates to make SURE that a true conservative stands up against the liberals.

Can you point me to your evidence that Bill Richardson was voted into office UNANIMOUSLY???

That is the only way that you could possibly leap to your implied conclusion that I, personally, voted for him...

Martinez retired from office and was replaced in the office by George LeMiuex. Nelson is the EQUIVALENT of McAmnesty. Kyl and the other repukes in the Senate that just want to “get along” with the rest of the progressives make me ill.
Kyl might be a good guy on other issues, but this Lou Costello impersonator Kagan is seeking a LIFETIME appointment! If there ever was a time to break out the filibuster, IT IS NOW!!!

Well with a Dem in the statehouse and two US senators what does voting unanimously mean really?

Please use your efforts to change that first before criticizing a very conservative US Senator in AZ like Jon Kyl

Rumor has it that Kyl was once a conservative. I lost interest when he sold out to the amnesty crowd back in 2007-8. His submissive compliant posture now does not surprise me.

here are the Republicans giving it all away again. We don’t need a 50 year old anti-Constitutionalist on the Court. It is a given that Socialism and worse is what we will get from Soetoro. But the Republicans should at least hold out for one that won’t last so long. But the Republicans will accept Kagan with barely a sound and will eventually give us Amnesty, too.
