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.
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.
“Its interesting that Obamas 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!
That’s the way to handle it. Too bad they’re too lazy to do it.
There is not enough Viagra in the world to cure the Senate GOP’s E.D.
“Im 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.
heck if the Republicans don’t have any spine we might as well just give up and vote a straight democratic ticket for the mid terms
Look.....Bammy won because of ALL the CONSERVATIVES that STAYED HOME!! They are getting what they deserve!! There is NO PERFECT CANDIDATE...JESUS ISN”T RUNNING!
Who did you vote for??
Why the F&%K not????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kyl, you SUCK! Republicans SUCK. Period.
i guess bill nelson is superior to any us senator that is republican
i dare you to declare what state you are from
My vote in Florida went to that bozo Marinez and Marco Rubio will win that seat.
Who did you vote for for President?
i just don’t know what to make of this thread...
most who are critical are newbies and don’t declare what states they are from
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.
oh and lets compare kyl to nelson and your other U S Senator who is retiring, which I like, and polls showing crist is leading as an independent
maybe you might want to expend your energy there instead of reading my posts and arguing your point
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.
You did the right thing, so you can complain all you want.....my complaint was with the CONSERVATIVES THAT STAYED HOME!! ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES!
Tell Kly he needs to buy a vowel.
The Republicans are not the opponents of the Democrats.
They are enablers.
” most who are critical are newbies and dont 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....
As an AZ I’d much rather have both Kyl and McCain rather than Nelson and Martinez
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.
Hello Bill Richardson who is against any law like AZ in relation to illegal immigration
please define “true conservative”
” Hello Bill Richardson “
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...
AMEN!! Primaries are where the power are!! Then you have to vote for the LEAST of the worst!!
Ask Mr. Jazzy.
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!!!
Sell outs. They are too busy buttering their bread using the global scam.
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
Not in Florida now that Crist has changed from Republican to independent
Nelson voted for the HC bill McCain did not
WTF?? Support the WINNER, Marco Rubio!!
John Kyl seemed to be Conservative compared to McCain, Now that McCain is on the hotseat...Kyl is starting to show his has one finger in the air and the rest else where!
I’ve never understood why smart people do such dumb $h!t!
And just how many US Senators that are Republican does OH have? One that I know who is retiring for sure
Crist is ahead in the polls as an independent in the polls in Florida.
Why worry about Kyl who is not up for reelection in az?
Don’t know what state you are from but again its
Oh you’re from CA where you have Barbara Boxer and Diann Feinstein
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.
If the CONSERVATIVES stay home, Crist will win....Meeks doesns;t stand a snowball’s chance in HELL...even DEMOCRAT Floridians know he is a DUMB BAG OF ROCKS!
