1. Many who support Ford are upset with the Dems for leaking her information.
2. Most see these stunts are just that political stunts.
3. Many are upset with the Dems for their constant attacks with NO supporting evidence.


I think the stunts the Dems have been pulling with the Kavanaugh hearings will cause
1. More people to walkaway from the Dem party. (smaller Dem voter turnout)
2. The Reps a reason why they need to vote in the Midterms. (larger Rep voter turnout)

Yawn! Of course you don't see the friggin' stunts the republican have done starting at the beginning of this hearing. They thought they had it all wrapped up and it was preordained that Kavanaugh who is not qualified with be confirmed by a bunch of chauvinistic men. Too bad the Dems derailed the train. Too bad it wasn't permanent.

This is exactly what the Dems are doing to our justice system.

Has anyone supported any of the statement against Kavanaugh?

My bother with a little thing like evidence just whip up the mob and attack the man.

Wow. You have it all bassackwards - but no one here will convince you of that. It's hard to see a man who considers himself Christian support violence against women.

There was evidence for Manafort, Cohen, Kelly et al. Kavanaugh provided the evidence for his ability to lie in the hearings.

You believe in forcing a nomination through without truly checking the man out? Any destruction is of his own doing - well his & all his sleazy Rep buddies. Shouldn't charges of molestation be looked at? Oh right, since it's a woman, she probably deserved it.

I'm amazed you think Kavanaugh is a worthy candidate for the highest office in our judicial system after his partisan, revenge of the Clintons, totally unhinged display, of everyone is out to take away from me the job I'm entitled to speech.
How many more spoiled, privileged east coast elites from Georgetown prep do you think we need. He should lose his current job for that display. Dude acts like he is ten years old. Surely there are other more grown up conservative judges out there that could testify without committing perjury.... It will come back to haunt him, the court, and the country if he is confirmed. I guess Trump can pardon him.

It's hard to see Christians support violence against women. It's not at all hard to see people who consider themselves Christian supporting violence against women.

Just as I said in my OP

Title: Dems to pay in November for overplaying Kavanaugh hand
It also means the progressive strategy of using sexual assault victims to bolster midterm turnout just backfired. Before the Kavanaugh fiasco, polls showed Republicans as less likely to vote in November than Democrats. The conservative base just wasnít motivated to show up as compared to progressives.
That is no longer the case.
Republicans are now aflame with outrage. Sen. Lindsey Grahamís Braveheart-like performance at the Kavanaugh hearing was the most moving, to be sure, but anecdotal reading of conservative media, intellectuals and Twitter feeds confirm that the Democratic assault has awakened a Republican giant.

Sorry Geng, he's convicted himself by blatantly lying. This time he was caught, his earlier lies under oath weren't and should have been. I suppose you'd be the type who'd want a liar on the bench wouldn't you?

It doesn't surprise me at all that genglandoh is unfazed by Kavanaugh's partisan, revenge of the Clintons, totally unhinged display, of "everyone is out to take away from me the job to which I am entitled" speech.

genglandoh AGREES with Kavanaugh. It is a leftist, Clinton revenge conspiracy I tells ya.

Just had to save this for posterity. Graham makes Mel Gibson look sane. Oh - interestingly enough, you chose a guy who's made anti-Semitic comments as well.

Finally, whiney, entitled little Lindsey ain't no Scot hero.

No, not backfiring at all. If Kavanaugh is appointed, it's going to serve as a HUGE motivator for Democrat voters in November. His nomination and the televised hearings have been the best get out the vote campaign the Dems could ask for. The "backfiring" will be on the Republicans

repeating a statement doesn’t make it stronger.

Midterm turnout is motivated by the flawed and vindictive policies to date, by a president who honors dictators and disrespects allies, by a GOP enabling Trumps destructive actions against our institutions of security and democracy from the FBI to the press. Turnover and convictions in Trumps administration are over the top. His weakening US security and trade agreements coincides perfectly with Putins strategy.
If you recall the Women’s March the day AFTER the inauguration was bigger.
There is no Democrat assault. There is a rejection of Trumps ignorant appeal to bigotry, victimhood and traditional male hierarchy.
Grabbing women isn’t ok which is what Trump and his Evangelical base want to dismiss as boys being boys.

Is this what you teach your sons, that it's okay to get blind drunk and sexually assault women and then, lie about it Geng? I truly hope not but, your support of a man whose claim to fame is that he's entitled to be a SC justice turns my stomach. Not just his character is brought into question but, his inability to be impartial on the decisions he'll make for forty years. He threw his cloak off when he whined about it during his opening rant geng. He finally told the truth for once.

i don't think it's 'backfiring' as much as they got and will be rolled by the White House's limits on the FBI investigation. I could see it in Graham's eyes when he came out of the room. He was almost rubbing his hands together at the prospect. Cat who swallowed a canary. And I'm betting that whatever is the resulting report will be ignored anyway and K will be voted in.

Graham, how would your kids take this exchange?

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/amphtml/talalansari/trump-women-reporters-press-conference-trade?__twitter_impression=true

When Trump called on ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega second, he said, "She's shocked that I picked her. She's in a state a shock."

"I'm not, thank you, Mr. President," Vega said.

"That's OK, I know you're not thinking, you never do," Trump retorted.

"I'm sorry?" Vega said.

"No, go ahead. Go ahead," Trump said.
