    It's making excuses. If what the dems did was wrong, then what the GOP did was wrong. If it isn't wrong, then it was not worth bringing up.

    if I engage in a fist fight with you and you pull a knife, you have done wrong but If I then pull a glock and cap you I am perfectly and morally correct.

    BFD, he threw out a name, big accomplishment. Now we got a military hating leftist on the court.

    That makes zero sense in relation to the discussion.

    You accuse Dems of this (and you're not entirely wrong). However, you'll note that when Dems took over Congress with Bush in office, despite their base calling for it, they opted not to try to impeach him even after Republicans tried to impeach a sitting president with a 60% approval rating at the time. And more than 80% saying they were against impeachment.

    Now, we have Bachmann and Tancredo saying they're going to try to impeach Obama if they get control of the House.

    I'll urge my party to stop voting against SCOTUS nominees, if you'll get yours to stop trying to impeach presidents.

    What is amusing is you keep falling back to "it's the democrats fault the repubs did what they did" excuse, and don't even realize it. Conservatives, the party of every one but themselves being responsible.

    I am opposed to Kagan's appointment for the same reason I was opposed to Harriet Meiers being appointed. No judicial experience.

    To the Democrats - Don't be hypocrites. I saw your posts during the Meiers process. You said she had no experience.

    To the Republicans - Don't be hypocrites. Although you are lambasting Kagan's nomination because she has no judicial experience, that did not stop a lot of you from supporting Meiers.

    But, I do understand where both sides are coming from, and it all goes according to the following definition:

    Politics - A conflict of interests disguised as ideologies.

    I don't see how the appointment of any justice to the supreme court is an "accomplishment" for a president. Its more like a minimum requirement of actually doing his job.
