    Barrett would be my first choice, but apparently her interview with Trump didn't go well.

    How people know this I have no idea. I had three interviews for judicial positions with our governor. I still have no idea how I did.

    Are we going to need to take away the punch bowl?

    That doesn't sound so scary.

  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 2,115 Senior Member

    I don't think so either.

    She's different. Non Ivy-Leaguer. 7 kids, two of whom are adopted.

    Ironically enough, it was Feinstein who brought her to prominence and made her the top choice of social conservatives by questioning whether she could follow the law during her confirmation hearing last year.

  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 2,222 Senior Member

    Yeah. I was aware of all that.

  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 2,115 Senior Member

    The buzz is that its Kavanaugh. Make of that what you will.

    You know my track record on predictions.

  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 2,222 Senior Member

    He seems the most likely to pick up a Dem vote or two. I know the Far Right isn't totally thrilled with him, though.

    I'm going with Barrett....mostly just because I want to see the left go crazy...well ok, more so

  • jbillyjbilly Senior Member Posts: 4,686 Senior Member

    He could nominate Kennedy and the left would still be pissed.

    Seems Kavanaugh is most noted as being very anti-Chevron. This is a good thing.

    This seems to be one of the few things that Trump takes seriously and puts some thought into. I mean, we might go nuclear with NK and apparently we killed a UN resolution calling for more breastfeeding (****?) and we might lose a trade war with China, but on the judicial nominations he has played it straight.

    Yeah he put some thought into the fact that this guy wrote a paper in opposition to indicting a sitting president.

    By nominating conservative judges? That's certainly a unique take.

    This is the new talking point for Schumer, Booker, et. al. but there's a lot less here than meets the eye. Its a fairly mainstream view in legal circles.

    Has Kavanaugh been confirmed yet? I'll just wondering when we get the greenlight to commit character assassination on someone nobody has ever heard of.

    By nominating judges that believe in an Imperial Presidency and shield him from the rule of law.

    I mean people that love authoritarianism and believe that unless a right is enumerated, it doesn't exist. Regardless if it is the basic premise of ever single right listed in the constitution.

    Plus people like **** Cheney and Richard Nixon that believe that if the President does it, it can't be illegal.

    I don't think that's the argument. I went looking for the paper Kavanaugh drafted but couldn't find it yesterday (admittedly I didn't look that hard). The argument would be that an indictment would have to follow impeachment and removal. Honestly, without doing the research, just based on the structure of our system, I would have assumed that a sitting president can't be indicted.

    saltydancindave....your posts always make me flashback to that scene in Lethal Weapon 2 where Sgt Murtaugh and Leo Getz enter the South African embassy under the guise that Sgt Murtaugh wants to emigrate to South Africa and when the guy at the desk stammers out 'but but but...your black' and then Sgt Murtaugh gets a going and just keeps winding up as he begins to rant about opression and regimes and helping his brothers and attacking the group and their institutions and practices dominating society in South Africa at the time as reasons for why he wants to go...and there's old Leo Getz getting more and more excited with a expression of wicked satisfaction and pleasure on his face punctuating everything Murtaugh says with keywords pulled from Murtaugh's rant or supporting and approving yeahs...

    but, but but. . .you're black!
