I get it that Democrat Senators in Washington oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, and it’s obvious why. The conservatives on the Court will have a 5-4 majority, and there really won’t be any moderates like Anthony Kennedy that will flip flop. So, it’s pretty clear that Democrats really don’t want Kavanaugh confirmed. But there is a little fly, actually a gigantic fly in their ointment with the amount of opposition they are throwing up.
If Democrats were smart, they would have allowed the hearing with Christine Blasey Ford to go forward, and would have treated Kavanaugh with the same temperment that they treated Ford. They didn’t…and it could kill them up the road.
Think about this scenario for a minute, and I realize that a judge sitting on the highest court in the land probably would never be this petty…but you couldn’t blame Kavanaugh if he decided to be after the hell the Democrats have put him through. What if there is something that is coming before the high court that liberals really care about. IF (and again, it’s a big IF) Kavanaugh were any less of a person than what I’ve seen so far, could you blame him if he decided that he was going to stick it to the left and take away whatever they really were wanting?
I mean, abortion is an obvious want for the left, but there are tons of other causes they want as well. What if some abortion case came before the high court, and Kavanaugh said, “Screw it…they treated me like dirt, I’ll show them!” Well, he probably would never do it, but in this scenario, let’s just say he did. Could you blame him? Hell, I don’t know if I were in his position that I wouldn’t be all in for something like that.
This goes back to the Democrats’ total war against Kavanaugh and his family. If they were smart (and I’ve never said Democrats were blessed with an abundance of grey matter), they would have realized the odds of him getting confirmed were certainly a lot greater than 50/50. Even if only two of the three Senators that are waffles decide to back him, he still gets confirmed without one Dem because Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote in the event of a tie. You’d think the left would have realized that and maybe rather than gone nuclear with the oppostion, they could have excited their base through ads, and campaigns, as opposed to this public display which left them looking like a bunch of spoiled two year olds…and I’m sorry to have denegrated two year olds in this example.
The way these Senators have behaved, and the left over all has badgered those Republican Senators is shameful. Of course, they don’t have any shame, because it’s their entire religion on the line here. And they are willing to do virtually everything to sink the nomination. The sad thing is, this gives you some insight as to what will happen when Breyer or Ginsburg retire or die. You think this is Armageddon? Just wait!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
