“Looks like Arizona needs 2 new Senators.”

Coming from a CA where they have two (2) Democratic U S Senators that’s saying something s/

These RepubliCrat clowns need to resign so we can get some real conservative blood in the Congress.

I’m tired of seeing them surrender without a fight when our qualified nominees are totaly destroyed by the democrat party.

How long are we going to allow this to go on?

What does the GOP and a steer have in common?

In foreign policy, Democrats believe in unilateral disarmament. The rinos like Kyl believe in political disarmament.
Why can’t this dummy keep his cards close to vest and say that he reserves the right to retain all options as the situation unfolds?

What Kyl is doing is coming from the leadership of the US Senate.

Most of the posters in this thread are from states who don’t even have Republican US Senators in their own states. Maybe we should start there first.

It's the job of any Constitution-loving Senator to filibuster anybody who thinks the First Amendment doesn't mean what it says and Second as well.

It's the job of anybody with commonsense to do what it takes to keep someone who has violated laws, namely those allowing military recruiters on college campus, from having a seat on the high court.

So the Republicans will let the Democrats “Bork” the process but the Republicans are too, what, “gentlemanly” to push back?

They all need to be freaking voted out. Worthless bunch of pond scum.

I believe someone has cautioned the pubs to choose their battles wisely. FOOLS. There ARE no small battles against this bunch of thugs. They need to fight every skirmish like it’s their last. Or it will be.

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.

“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!

That’s the way to handle it. Too bad they’re too lazy to do it.
