What were you saying about personal attacks?

I know exactly what the issues facing the country are today. However, trying to decipher your post and how it relates to what I had posted, is not making any sense.

Minus the number of Democrats that are openly supporting Socialism and socialist policies. A openly Socialist Senator barely lost the DNC nomination in the last election cycle, only due to collusion between the winning candidate and the DNC. Yet, cries of socialism infecting that party are unfounded. Yeah right.

Why do they need to put off the vote for a week? So that those people that have already been investigated and asked about the alleged party, can say it to another group of people, provided that they even accept the task? Being as they've (the FBI) has already stated that the matter is closed, grandstanding Dem's have whined and cried enough to convince a spineless Republican Senator to join their calls to allow for another week of baseless accusations to come forward. All part of the delay tactic that has been employed by the Dems to date.

An expository response would be for you to try to offer a rebuttal to my post, which is substantive and thoughtful (and I had hoped, wrongly it turns out, to be thought provoking). instead you use fear mongering, an emotional form of rhetoric which feeds denial, willful or otherwise.

Was McConnell's nonfeasance a sign of putting our country first? Is the Senate forcing through a nomination to the SC a sign of good will and justice?

You may say yes. But you cannot provide any reason to support this scheme put into play by McConnell, a leader who rejected the appointment of a duly elected POTUS, simply because he alone could do so.

No greater example of a rejection of democracy occurs to me; though there are others as nefarious which would be on topic but redirect my opening statement.
Forcing through a nomination? The hearing was Sep 3rd or thereabouts. Grassley asked if there was any further business. There wasn't. Gavel fell. But apparently there was. Seems Democrat(s) had conveniently forgotten an alleged letter which made its way via a circuitous path to Feinstein. Suddenly to be remembered just in time for another delay and new hearing. Done. Now, guess what? Calls for a new investigation and a new hearing. And then another.

Democrats don't want a vote. Don't want a better candidate. They hope to delay past November, where they hope to gain an advantage. I think this debacle has quenched any hope of that.

Your claim a couple of data points prove that the Democratic Party supports Socialism is absurd, is fear mongering on steroids, and only the ignorant (of Socialism) and the biddable believe such claims.

It looks like the Senate Republican Leadership in the Senate has capitulated to Sen. Flacks call for a weeks delay, before the Committee votes to move the nominee's future to the full Senate for an up or down vote.

It also appears they will ask Trump to reopen the background background investigation. Because people unlike you seek a full and comprehensive vetting of someone to be placed in a life time appointment.

I think you need to read your own signature line, and then read the OP.

Personal attack? You think that was an attack? I was responding to your post calling all of us fools and cowards.

I'm actually trying to help you Wry Wry. I don't want you to sink into the depths of hatred with the rest of the Liberals.
I know it must be hard getting bombarded with Trump hate all day, everyday.
It eventually wears you down and you go from hating Trump, to hating everyone that doesn't hate Trump.

Try this, think about how Trump has hurt you and your loved ones, then share it with us. I think it would make you feel better and you would see things more clearly and reasonably.

The Senate has capitulated on Flake's demands? I hadn't heard that. Nor can I find it anywhere. U gotta link?

"OUR DEMOCRACY IS IN PERIL" Not because of Trump! It will be in peril if the radical, militant socialists gain any more power, that's for DAMN sure.

Calling an elephant and elephant is not an example of hate. Grow up.

Yeah true, but that's not what your doing. You have been so polluted with Trump hate that you can't see the elephant.

You can throw out all the drama you want about the end of the world, and the end of democracy. I'm sure you listen with baited breath to the radical left wing politicians when they say stuff like millions will die if Kavanagh is confirmed, and Tax cuts will be Armageddon, and other such nonsense.

Democrats say that stuff to get the weak minded all worked up, and it works.

I don't hate Trump. Trump is not worth hate, he is a narcissist, a megalomaniac and not very bright. I can make that assertion based on my education and experience, and I'm not the only one on this planet who holds that diagnosis and opinion.

That you and others support the chaos Trump has created, is unfathomable to me. Maybe you can try to convince me he is not what he is. I refer you to the DSM-V for evidence that he is what I posted he is.
