Columbus Day. Nice. :)
Flimsey Grahamnesty is giving the Democrats too much time to gin up smears.
The hearings should have been next week.
Why have a hearing? JUST VOTE!
Democrats are gonna die big time on this hill.
I dont know enough about all the potential maneuvers, but why invite trouble? Or take chances
They are cutting it close, and the Dem game will be to find something to cause a delay. The margin for error is razor thin.
Don’t stop your enemy when it’s walking itself towards ruination....;)
Have at democrat smear machine
I guess even Graham can become sufficiently pissed off to remember that he has cojones. About the only good thing to come out of the Kavanaugh hearings (aside from his confirmation, of course).
It’s Graham. He’s going to allow the DEMs to cripple Barrett during the confirmation process.
Start Monday, Linda.
No hearing is necessary—just vote yes or no!!!
Beautiful, wholesome family.
If the Dems start playing games Turtle can just simply STOP the hearings and vote NOTHING in the constitution says anything about hearings!! Amy just recently went through hearings anyway DONE!!
I would ordinarily support committee hearings but this nominee was just vetted a couple years ago. Doesnt need to be repeated. Let the nomination be taken up directly and votes by the senate. We need this vacancy filled in light of the Ds intensive and wide- ranging election fraud campaign
Two weeks hence...
Surely they can do better than that.
