Skip to comments.Dan Rather: Collins 'misses her moment to be a hero' by voting for Kavanaugh
Posted on 10/06/2018 4:02:56 AM PDT by a little elbow grease
Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather argued Friday that Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) missed an opportunity to be a "hero" by announcing that she would vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
In a Facebook post after Collins announced her plans to vote for Kavanaguh during a lengthy speech on the Senate floor, the veteran anchor called the nomination battle a "devastating loss" for "most women" and some men.
"So Collins misses her moment to be a hero, and the old bulls win again," Rather wrote in the post.
"For most women and many men its a bitter, devastating loss. Which makes it all the sweeter for the old bulls, and for the forces of power, privilege and money everywhere," he added.
Rather wrote that his wife was "furious and deeply disappointed" by the day's news that Republicans have the votes necessary to confirm Kavanaugh on Saturday.
"Fill your lungs with the determined air of action. I find myself humming that old but powerful anthem of the Civil Rights Era. 'We'll walk hand in hand!' 'We are not afraid!' 'We shall overcome!'" he wrote, invoking Civil Rights-era messages.

LOL! Dan is limited to posting on his Facebook page...where only his friends can read. A step down from YouTube and Twitter. Next thing you know, he'll be posting on MySpace.
The father of “Fake News” speaks.
She became a hero by doing what Rather did not want her to do.
Who were the sour looking women behind Collins as she was speaking?
Different frequency Dan.
Dr Fraud is fake and inaccurate. Scrooge you Dan Blather.
Another turd I’d like to wake up tomorrow to the “news” he’d joined Walter Cronkite wherever Marxist “journalists” go after death.
BS Dan! Easiest thing in the world for her is to vote no.
In this case the "old alligators" were McConnell, Grassley, and Graham and the Left got bit in the ass.
“Next thing you know, he’ll be posting on MySpace. “
By spring, Rather will be hanging out at Yahoo Messenger.
Calling "Buckhead" ..........
Jeez, I thought this old fraud had died.
It would not have mattered who President Trump nominated, the response would have been the same.
If he had nominated a woman they would have attempted to demonize and destroy her (all in the name of women everywhere).
The left is so predictable. They have clearly stated that their goal is to resist President Trump in every action. It is to the point you have to wonder why anyone would pay for an opinion by a left. You could write a computer program that could write a “fresh” 500 word article on any subject that supports the left view and demonize anyone that does not support them and their agenda.
The left are losing on all fronts and it is driving them insane.
FU Dan..What’s the frequency?
Put some ice on that, Blather.
Dan Rather - another washed up political hack from the fake news left.
Eventually it will be posts on poles in the neighbourhood and maybe a supermarket bulletin board if they let him.
Shes my hero! Shes the hero of every thinking person who understands the law, and is not a neo-Bolshevik.
Back to NAM Rather
Hey, Rather...if you’re “not afraid”, why do you have to walk “hand in hand” to comfort one another?
