This Is What Arrogance Sounds Like

Sen. John "Francois" Kerry decided to pander to the extreme Left try and persuade his Liberal friends to support an Alito filibuster. The way he does it is most amusing. He considers Sam Alito a result of the old switchero.

This was a coup.

Miers was removed and Alito was installed to replace the swing vote on the Court. The President gave no thought to what the American people really wanted--or needed. So it's up to us to think about what America really needs - that's part of the true meaning of "advice and consent."

Umm. I don't remember the poll that said "most American voters disapprove of Alito". G.W. Bush ran for re-election (against the aforementioned Sen. Kerry) and he made it quite clear that he intended to appoint Justices in - "the mold of Justice Scalia or Justice Thomas". And guess what? He won!

And even if there WAS a poll that said differently, so what? I don't recall the provision in the Constitution that called for a poll result to determine who the President could nominate or one that stated that a "swing vote" on the Court had to be replace with another "swing vote". Elections have consequences and Bush can appoint anyone he sees fit. As long as that nominee is qualified, there is NO provision in the Constitution for the Senate withhold its "consent". And it looks like a majority of Senators - Democrat AND Republican - give their consent.

When Sen. Kerry says he cares about "what America really needs", what he means is what he thinks America really needs. Because as far as he's concerned, if the American voter is too stupid to vote for George Bush over him then they certainly don't know what's best for the Supreme Court. Like a true Liberal elitist douchebag, Kerry thinks he knows better than the knuckle-dragging plebians of the electorate. So he's determined to pursue obstuction as his interpretation of "advise and consent".

Guess what Frenchy-boy? You LOST in November and you're gonna LOSE now. Because the American people - whether you believe it or not - are smart enough to decide for themselves what they want.

Here's a clue: they DIDN'T want you as President but they DO want Sam Alito on the Court. So go back to your sugar-mommy and "borrow" some money to send to MoveOn.org because at this point they have more political influence than you do. Loser.

1 at first i was upset that abramoff only gave bush 6,000 dollars for his reelection campaign, a mere spit in the pacific ocean, but now i am pleased to know that bush is obstructing and covering up the public's investigation into his dealings with abramoff, perhaps there is something there. as for alito - i am concerned that he ruled half the time in favor of the employer and the other half in favor of the employee, i would prefer him to favor the underdog like a good democrat should. Republicans didn't tolerate this kind of behavior from the Clinton White House in the midst of its fundraising scandal. "At every turn, they are stonewalling, covering up and hiding," Haley Barbour, then the head of the Republican National Committee, said as the Clinton administration tried to brush off questions about its fundraising before the 1996 election. Mr. Barbour complained of the administration's "utter contempt . . . for the public's right to know." - washington post

2 Alito rulings were based on the merits of the cases in accordance with the law, not on the "virtue" of the parties involved. It's called impartiality. Grow up.

3 let's be honest here - if the judges are so impartial than why is it that there are so many 5-4 decisions. if alito judged based on the merits of the case than on what did the judges who disagreed from them base their cases on? it's more virtuous to give the benefit of the doubt to the powerless.
