Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Kavanaugh Confirmed

Post by canucklhead » Fri Sep 28, 2018 11:12 am

Seems the dems made a mess of the hearing. I figure the nominee will be confirmed despite the best efforts of the DNC.
IMHO

I watched the whole thing yesterday. She is one flakey woman and her story was full of more holes than a colander. Problem is that they are out to get Trump by the back door and anyone is fair game in trying to embarrass him.

Who in their right mind would want to be a politician?

all in all a set up EXCEPT
she contacted people BEFORE he was nominated to be Trumps #1 pick when she saw he was on the short list for nomination.
NOT after

Why didn't they subpoena his friend who she says was with him??

Even IF he still gets it, there will always be some nagging suspicion in the back of everyones mind,
"what if he did do it?"

"
That’s what is wrong with the dems though, if this was all about the victim why did they wait to come forward until after he was nominated?

As soon as anyone is told about a suspected crime it should be looked into. Not left in someone’s “desk drawer” to use as ammunition should it be needed.

Agree;
he was NOT nominated, he was on the short list for nominations when she contacted someone
The dems fucked up by not bringing it out right away and than the fbi would have looked into it

If he hadn't been nominated ,....would it have come out?

Is she claiming rape or coersion or violence? I don't think so. Literally a couple seconds of over-the-clothes dry humping by a teenage boy. More like "He made me feel icky when we were back in high school 36 years ago and both drunk at a party and I don't really remember much about it but I know it ruined my whole life as a result."

TOG got it right. This is seen by the left as a hit against Trump before mid-tem elections. It has nothing to do with Kavanaugh. Any Trump nominee would face the exact same accusations. Everything is fair game as long as it embarasses Trump.

"Who in their right mind would want to be a politician?"

Not applicable to Trump. He can only appoint, the Senate must approve. You naysayers probably think a wall around the Mexican border scores highly on an index of mental health.

"

No need, there are plenty of front doors.


For Stroppy. Sorry if you read this far without the prerequisite warning. US politics lacks the quintessential pizzazz of Aussie efforts.
