I'm going to give Garrett the benefit of the doubt

That's my take on it too. Maybe Garrett had a bad day yesterday. I'd just as soon wait until I see a pattern before I accuse him of lying.

"Some freepers refuse to do the same. Hence, we are still talking about this dead issue."

Sad that it seems to be the same ones over and over isn't it...

How about the rest of the paragraphs they took out? Fox News didn't even have the integrity to say that the original article was wrong. If you read the article from last night you are left with the wrong impression.

Fox News should have corrected it and said why it was corrected instead of making it seem like a new article.

If I were Sen Frist and the rest, I would never talk to Garrett again!

Not to get off topic too much, but did anyone see this by Rush:

Want Estrada? Squeeze Linda Daschle

Senators Bill Frist and Orrin Hatch and whoever else in the Republican side of the Senate wants to do it, simply needs to go over to the House of Representatives and meet with Speaker Denny Hastert and Majority Leader Tom DeLay. At the meeting, you tell them this: Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle's wife Linda is a lobbyist. Since he's in the Senate, she cannot lobby at that end of the Capitol. She can only lobby the House. Do you see where this is going? You tell the House guys to send out a message:

"From this day forward, until the Democrats end this filibuster and start paying attention to the guts of the Constitution, any business brought before the House of Representatives by Linda Daschle on behalf of her clients is dead on arrival. None of Mrs. Daschle's clients gets one ounce of consideration before the House while this is going on." If you want to play the way the Democrats are playing, that's what you do. Heck, you could also hold the vote until these Democrats are on the campaign trail! This is not a game. These people must be stopped from destroying the Constitution.

I love you Rush !!! (LOL!!!)

The TRUE bottom line here is what the PRESIDENT said..."I will stand by this man's side until he is confirmed as a judge." That's really all anybody needs to focus on.

I know. I remember seeing you on the live thread. I left when Lindsey Graham was giving a speech (a great one!) and missed out on what followed. At the time I left FR and turned off C-SPAN2, it looked like the Republicans were going to call it quits. People were saying how tired the Pubbies looked and the Senators evidently were saying how they needed to get back to other Senate business.

I understood from the next day's thread that Frist was going to call for a vote on Monday, then I saw Major Garrett's report which said a vote was going to be called for on Tuesday. I listened to Rush's show today and was happy to learn that MG's report was incorrect, according to Senators Frist and Hatch via Rush. I didn't come back to an Estrada thread until this one and was just surprised to see quite a few people picking on the individual who posted the Rush article. I just don't understand why there's an apparent animosity toward that person.

That's a great idea!

What I like is that Rush didn't hestitate to say he was wrong!

Cannot say the same for the Fox website! I am still waiting to hear back about my complaints to Fox that Wednesday night's vote was not an historic vote and it was not a bad night for Republicans.

This thread being posted doesn't bother me because it came from Rush's site. In fact, I went and checked to make sure.

Actually it has turned out to be a good thing IMO because it allows things to get aired out and cleared up.

It becomes a big deal when it happens frequently by that one poster... Quite frankly, I'm getting sick of it...

I agree! And I'm glad you wrote to Fox News about the erroneous report. I do like Major Garrett, though, and wonder exactly what happened.

I do too about Major Garrett. I was hoping for an explanation because what was written in the beginning was not close to what happened.

The 'people' against Estrada are the slug snot and slug sh*t that maggots feed on. And even that's a compliment compared to what they really are.

The GOP leadership never did this when Clinton appointed judges to the federal bench, and that was when the Republicans actually controlled the Senate! Do the Democrats truly believe in their heart of hearts that we wanted Ruth Bader-Ginsberg to be on the Supreme Court??

You raise a very good point. While I believe Orrin Hatch has been outstanding thus far vis a vis the Estrada nomination, he has made comments about how fair he was to the dems in confirming so many of Clinton's judges, because he stopped some of his fellow Republicans from fighting ones they vehemently opposed. All I could think of was how often the rats rolled him and thereby got some TRULY activist judges confirmed to the federal bench, and how Hatch shouldn't be bragging about it, because his own decency, sense of fairness and perceived WEAKNESS was used against him. The Senator from Utah no doubt expected "fairness" for a Republican President from his "good friends" on the other side of the aisle.

Now the dims are lying about the Clinton nominee Paez,
He went to bat to calm his fellow R's down, said it wasn,t
right for him not to have a vote. Now they are spitting in his face. They will stop at nothing, and have no scruples !!
