What are the odds of Blasey-Ford showing up to testify Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday?

Congress is fast becoming a racy reality show!
Not fit for the children to watch anymore!
Shall we insist that democrats keep their hands clearly visible during the testimony?

No way she shows up.
She'll have some complaint or lame excuse.
Or, dems will make up some other BS reason to delay.
Not happening Friday though.

@Flrdsgns Looks like you were wrong again Bud, she did indeed "show up".

Yeah, but I foolishly believed she had a fear of flying.
Turns out she mislead everyone about that too.

He has three women saying he behaved badly. Sounds like creepy drunken frat boy type crap.
We used to have very high standards regarding our supreme court justices.
Of course we had higher standards for potus, too.
And how do you know she is a liar? 200 hundred grand in debt? They could owe that much on a mortgage.

Ted bundy had glowing reports about him from prominent people as well....just sayin'.
Trump has surrounded himself with dirty people his entire life. So...finding dirt is likely relatively easy.
And i agree that false reporting is a crime and should be punished.
She did pass a polygraph. Wonder if brett could do the same? Or would he even sit for one
????

She SAYS she passed a poly.
Somehow, the poly results and her counselors notes have not been 'available' for review.

Sounds like you've accepted a sketchy partial memory and have dismissed provable, documented, current, evidence that Kavanaugh ain't that kind of guy.

She was confident in her statement, it's a case of who you believe I guess.

@Flrdsgns She was confident in her statement, it's a case of who you believe I guess.

Yea she did appear confident that something happened to he at some time, somewhere.

But the 'witnesses' she named all say she is mistaken.

THAT helped me tremendously in determining who I believe.

It seems someone did something bad to her a long time ago. But, it wasn't Kavanaugh, IMO

You could be right, I'm not convinced Kavanaugh is a sexual predator, but I do think he has a serious drinking problem.

@Flrdsgns You could be right, I'm not convinced Kavanaugh is a sexual predator, but I do think he has a serious drinking problem.

I do not share your concern.

The drinking stories dragged up were from when he was a teenager. Teen age drinking never works out well.

There was nothing discussed about drinking during his adult years. Nothing in any of the six FBI investigations or stories over his decades long judicial record.

I don't know, and since my opinion will make no difference, as I'm not a Senator, whether he is a drunk, or a rapist. What I do believe is the Democrats have hardened this guys conservative stance. Like Thomas, he will forever be suspect and like Thomas Kavanaugh will become even more conservative and will only vote with conservatives. I don't think this guy will ever be fair or listen to the other side again.

Is that based on his history of being fair and balanced?

Your opinion DOES make a difference. I'm counting on our opinions making a huge difference in November.

I expect Kavanaugh to be guided by the Constitution - that's the role of ALL the Supreme Court justices. They're not republican or democrat, conservative or liberal - at least they're not supposed to be.

Supposed to be is the key word. Thomas, after the accusations, and hearing he went through 20 years ago, has made him the most conservative judge on the court. He has NEVER not voted the republican line. I think the same will happen with Kavanaugh. Both will refuse to even listen to the other side.

Kavanaugh, in his rant last night, not only cried like a little girl, but showed nothing but anger toward Democrats. He is obviously partisan, and therefore should not be on the supreme court. I don't think the guy is capable of being objective.

The process has been a hit job from the start. How could he NOT be upset? The dems have been scheming, lying, misrepresenting.

Your reasoning is in itself partisan.

Well, she forgot that despite her fear of flying, which prevented her from testifying earlier, that she isn't so fearful afterall. She flies regularly.

She forgot who she gave her letters to a few weeks ago and when.

Her memory ain't all that.

@Budwick There are hundreds saying that Kavanaugh is a good man! For free!

A pedator knows not to attack all women.
Franken had a shitload of women saying he was a fine man. Y'all ignored them. Rightly.

@Budwick

Yep. Photographic proof that he is an ass with little/no respect for that woman.

He still has many who says he isnt "that" kind of guy.

I know guys that were horny and agressive as adolescents, most often when drunk. So...this story is believable to me on many levels.

So, the photograph is evidence that Franken was an ass.

All we have from Ford is a 36 year old fuzzy recollection.

Doesn't matter if she testifies or not, the damage is done. Kavanaugh will forever be a sexual predator by some.

You are correct!

Schumer: "There's No Presumption Of Innocence" For Kavanaugh.
His party has destroyed a man and his reputation.
Schumer can hang a Kavanaugh head on his wall like a big game trophy.

Bud, did you see Jeff Flake on 60 minutes last night? He was asked if he were running for re-election, would he have been able to walk across the aisle and work with the other side? He said no, that there is no working with each other any longer. What is your opinion of that? Doesn't the country do better when both sides get along and work out their problems? What do you think of the simple majority vote in the Senate? Personally, I thought the 60 vote threshold was a good idea, and that it should go back to that again.

First, I think Flake is a flake. A couple women shrieking at him in an elevator turns his vote?

There doesn't seem to be any compromise / reaching across the aisle anymore.

@Flrdsgns I disagree, but you certainly are entitled to your opinion.

I stopped taking the NY Times seriously as an unbiased news source when I read this "news" report on Netanyahu's re-election several years ago. Three negative editorial opinions on Netanyahu in their short opening paragraph, for crying out loud.

"TEL AVIV — After a bruising campaign focused on his failings, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel won a clear victory in Tuesday’s elections and seemed all but certain to form a new government and serve a fourth term, though he offended many voters and alienated allies in the process."

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/03...hu-herzog.html

Yes, NY Times, we get it. That failure of a louse Netanyahu, who offends and alienates many voters and allies, won re-election.
And you at the Times are beside yourselves that he did.

Well, with all due respect, I would recommend that you read or listen to MSM "news" reports more carefully. This kind of bias is not at all uncommon, particularly when it comes to not telling the whole story.

No, he is not that kind of guy in my opinion.
