Amy Coney Barrett...

Post by Ben Zonia » Tue Oct 13, 2020 11:11 am

She's had multiple grand slam home runs in the hearings!

The partisan hack Democrats should be embarrassed by the first day of those hearings. It had nothing to do with confirming a Supreme Court Justice and everything to do with one long DNC campaign comercial.


Democrats were all for riots, until they were against them.

Did you expect much else? They can’t stop the nomination... about all they can do is protest the process and the odiously hypocritical way it’s being done.

Stop with the "hypocrite" shit. There is nothing hypocritical about it. We went over this before.

Trump, no question. If Trump wins either ACB gets on the court or someone similarly qualified.

No... the Republicans sat on ours for 9 fucking months and said “let’s have an election”... now they are rushing this through in 44 days because there is an election upcoming and an Obamacare case and they want her seated to rule on both even if she should recuse herself in the event of an election case.
Lindsay Graham himself, the fucking committee chairman is on tape saying if it comes up in an election year we’ll wait for the election. That’s in the dictionary as the definition of hypocrisy considering he’s ramming it through now. It’s got him nailed dead to rights. Too bad.

As for her performance... she is incredibly weak at carrying herself in those hearings. It’s actually quite sad. She’s a walking rubber stamp.

If senate and president are the same party, the 17/19 of the nominations go through in an election year. If they are different, then only 2/10 go through.

That’s not the point. That’s also not what the Republicans said in 2016. This thing about which party controls what branch is brand new. They simply said “not in an election year”. Well guess what this is?

Cruz’s grandstanding in that speech was window dressing on what he even knows is hypocrisy. But he’s as unprincipled as Lindsay Graham so it’s ok.

She won’t even commit to backing a peaceful transition of power should Biden win... wow.

She’s a minnow swimming in a big pond. She’s absolutely whiffed on some easy ones here...

Is Cruz facts of 17/19 same party vs 2/10 different parties incorrect?

I like her. And an underlying theme of her answers is "The court has been hearing things they shouldn't". And I agree. The Supreme Court has been straying from what I feel is their role, interpreting the Constitution.

RT, what role do you feel the court should have in the transition of power?

Their role isn’t to interpret the constitution in the way they currently do through judicial review. That’s something they started doing one day in 1803 and nobody said anything.

The court should have no role. That’s the point. She’s no committing to simply saying “it’s none of our business” should a case come up that potentially decides something stopping a recount or on electors or a dozen other things that could flip the election to Trump after he screams fraud and sues. She won’t even commit to recusing herself despite the obvious conflicts of interest.
