    Kennedy was erratic and unpredictable but he was a solid vote for gay rights and abortion.

    Kavanaugh's views on gay rights and abortion give the left much to whine about
    Kavanaugh's views on gay rights and abortion cannot be determined at this time. Democrats object to his appointment on the grounds that he is political hack with questionable ethics on the separation of church and state, the rights of corporations and presidential power to over-ride Congress.

    He already has an aneurysm. It just hasn't burst, yet.

    Why are you lying about his academic record?
    Back when this stuff was all the rave in news I still had a foot on the Trump train, though my ride was becoming less enthusiastic with each passing day. As such I took the Kavanaugh thing as someone Trump felt qualified, although I did feel the claims being made should be looked into. The outcome by the FBI was fine, but in the back of my mind I hoped no strings had been pulled. Kavanaugh was sworn in, life went on.

    Obviously I gave up on the compulsive liar in the White House and no longer think he makes wise choices or can be trusted. Kavanaugh was not a wise choice.

    Yesterday I had the TV on while doing some work online and parts of the hearing came on. I realized my Trump colored glasses had dimmed the reality that Kavanaugh should have been sworn in.

    I saw an angry out of control person, who was defiant, rude and snarky. He had zero control over himself or his emotions. His "I like beer" made me laugh because it seemed like his inner party boy was coming out. Not a man who was hoping for a lifetime position on our courts.

    I have no idea if anything will come from this newest allegation, but I do think it was a mistake to go ahead with Kavanaugh. Surely there was a more mature candidate out there. Someone who could own up to mistakes made in the past (like partying too hard) but assure people they were no longer that person. He was incapable of doing that.

    Yes, why the insistence on this particular man. Why ram through this man onto the SC when there are Republican judges with more integrity, more experience, more intelligent, less baggage, and ones that have not accepted large sums of money from undisclosed sources. Why Kavanaugh?

    Maybe because someone invested a lot of money in him and wanted a return.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    How, exactly, is one supposed to prepare for cases where stories of their past are made up from whole cloth by political hit squads?

    I kind of get a kick out of some of you who claim Kavanaugh was a whiner when your own discourse here is, as a rule, a master class in that activity.

    It’s very true that he didn’t own up to mistakes of his past. It sounds like he was a young alcoholic. While it’s not a good thing, it is something most people would forgive him for.

    As a parent, it’s important to talk to your kids about learning from mistakes, and even learning from your past mistakes. My mom had those conversations with me. If he did that, he could have had a really moving and powerful moment on TV. It would have been a moment that many would relate to. He had no such moments. He just looked angry and played victim. The partisanship of it was horrible.

    They were addresses. He was confirmed. You concerns were answered.

    To quote my favorite New York liberal, you can have your own opinion, but not your own facts.

    Mans not accused of attempted rape and sexual assault

    I have to say, I think Ford was very believable. She didn’t come off as a liar IMO. Kavanaugh’s defense was he didn’t know her, and didn’t recall. He was also known for heavy drinking and bad party antics. It wasn’t a sufficient defense.

    I believe there is a higher probability that Ford is telling the truth versus lying.

    Yes, everything you said about him is true and damning, however, being accused of attempted rape is nothing to gloss over either. A proper investigation should have conducted. The GOP has no damn excuse in their lack of responsibility
