Posted on 09/23/2020 9:18:43 AM PDT by RightGeek
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) made a stunning reversal of her position on filling the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. According to a report from Alaska Public Media, Murkowski now cant rule out voting to confirm a nominee before the election.
I know everybody wants to ask the question, will you confirm the nominee? she said. We dont have a nominee yet. You and I dont know who that is. And so I cant confirm whether or not I can confirm a nominee when I dont know who the nominee is.

Back fired on her. She just found out how unnecessary she is
woke up, saw the wind was blowing in the other direction today and decided to reverse course - at least until the wind blows the other way. Women of principles I see.
I thought Alaskans were individualists, that is, conservative. How do they keep electing this idiot?
She jumped out on the never trumper limb in near hypersonic speed. Then she looked back.
Oh I how I love the smell of fear from intimidation!!
when they got you by the short and curlies, your heart and mind will soon follow.
Did Murkowski vote to confirm Kavanaugh? I remember the final vote when two senators, one dimocrat and one republican, did something not usually done. Some how they swapped votes because the republican couldn’t be present to vote because of a family obligation. Does anyone remember the details of what that was and was Murkowski involved in that exchange?
I do not support this process moving forward, she said. Now, having said that, this process is moving forward with or without me.
Murkowski said she did not know whether she would withhold her vote to protest the timing of the appointment, but she said the quality of the confirmation process would be a factor.
If I had felt that there was a rush to move this through because youre up against a deadline that is hard and fast, like an election, and that a nominee had not been thoroughly and fairly evaluated through our process, then Im going to have to look at that, she said.
I told ya folks. Posted a vanity about this.
Look for her to vacillate like crazy. She'll be all over the map before it's over.
There are just two species of weasels in Alaska: the short-tailed weasel or ermine (Mustela erminea) and the least weasel (Mustela rixosa).
Seems Lisa (Murkowski swampdweller) is going for cover.
Her astrologer and her hair stylist have disagreed over the decision./s
Let’s hope she has the character to make a decision to help President Trump and the American people place a good person on the Court.
We can be thankful only Mitt voted to impeach the President.
My worry is the Senate have gotten word it’s going to be a “moderate” pick. That’s why they are all rushing to confirm they will support a vote.
Or found out that McConnell has better pictures than Feinstein....
Well-after a puke like Roberts who changes his flag daily, (usually in favor of Liberals) who knows what a ‘moderate’ Supreme Court Justice IS these days?
>> and that a nominee had not been thoroughly and fairly evaluated through our process<<
That is stupid on many levels.
ACB was recently vetted and placed into Circuit Judge. And how much time it take to vet someone? It isn’t like you have to be like the democrats and script and prep a bad actress to pretend something almost kinda happened 4 decades ago.
You need read nothing but her (or ANY SCOTUS candidate’s) rulings. Nothing else should matter.
.... only because Lisa Mckowshits is up for re-election in 2022.
There is no way the lying witch could defend voting against 2 Trump SCOTUS picks.
