Liberals never said anything about open borders; conservatives said liberals said that.

Liberals never said anything about taking guns away from responsible gun owners; conservatives said liberals said that.

Liberals never said anything about letting immigrants come into the country illegally; conservatives said liberals said that.

Liberals never said anything about pushing Christianity or American values out of America; conservatives said liberals said that.

In short . . . just about everything conservatives have said liberals have said, they never did.
And what about conservatives who expect the worst from black people? Conservatives who expect the worst from the LGBT community? Conservatives who expect the worst from Muslims? Conservatives who expect the worst from women? Conservatives who expect the worst from the working class? Conservatives, in short, expect the worst from everybody who isn't wealthy, white, heterosexual, Christian, and male. And you can't just meet one of those criteria as far as they're concerned, you have to meet all of them, otherwise, they won't even give you the time of day. I meet all of those except wealth, so under Republican ruling (again, the Bush era), living life as part of a middle/working class family was a real struggle as Bush allowed our economy to crumble - something that Trump has been doing all over again; sure, the wealthy have been getting their big tax breaks, but what about the rest of us? For every big corporation that's gotten bonuses to give to some workers, others had to be laid off altogether to compensate for it.

Yeah, but falling for his crocodile tears, and rushing the hearings so they could blunder past the hurdles and obstacles they saw before them to get what they want.
President Trump is letting the economy crumble like President Bush did? Have you seen any of the economic indicators lately? The economy is humming along better than it has in decades. Just yesterday, a new report showed that the unemployment rates is at its lowest since 1969. 1969!!! Is that crumbling? The strong economy is why the Democrats and liberals want to focus on everything BUT the economy.

The FBI initially didn't want to lead another investigation because (1) they felt it didn't fall in their jurisdiction (2) after six previous investigations nothing incriminating was found (3) after the probe nothing new was found to corroborate any of Dr. Ford's claims (4) Leftists might feel the probe was rushed. In that case, they can thank Diane Feinstein for that. She sat on Dr. Ford's allegations for two months and did nothing. Nada. Zip doo dah. While the sixth hearing was going on, she could have brought forth the allegations and the FBI could have investigated in a timely manner. If she chose not to, that's on her.
All the dems insisted Kavanaugh be subject to another FBI probe. The FBI carried out the assignment and nothing turned up. The dems are mad because (1) no dirt turned up (2) they can't delay his confirmation until after the midterms.
How would Feinstein feel if her ethics were subject to the same level of scrutiny? (And they might be, even some Dems are questioning her moral compass). Probably just as outraged as Kavanaugh.

Oh wait, didn't you state you'd rather be guilty until proven innocent? Is that the kind of world you really want? You would've loved being around during the Inquisition or the Salem witch trials. A mere accusation would send you to the gallows.

How about you just skip over other people's posts without responding to them next time, since obviously you don't have the willpower to talk to the peasants when they attempt to make points.

Cute. But it ignores one thing. One very IMPORTANT thing. Judge Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault. Not found guilty of sexual assault, but accused. Like it or not, and as it correctly points out, in our country one is presumed innocent until proven guilty. I know it doesn't work that way in the court of public opinion but legally it does. So let's give that to Judge Kavanaugh. And as far as giving that to former Senator Al Franken? He admitted it. No need to presume a person innocent until proven guilty when that person ADMITS it!

But I get it. Liberals tend to ignore the facts when it doesn't fit in to their argument. Just like your claim the economy is crumbling under President Trump. It doesn't hold water when exposed to the facts.

And do liberals and Democrats really care about sexual assault victims and women? Or is it just an easy political strategy? Case in point. The Democratic senator from West Virginia who voted to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. He opposed the confirmation but he is up for re-election this November in a district that President Trump won by 60%. Polls show that when people are asked if they would vote for him if he voted no on Kavanaugh's nomination he loses by 8%. So what does he do? With the Democratic party's blessing, he votes yes to Kavanaugh's nomination. They knew Kavanaugh already had enough yes votes so give the people what they want for political convenience.

It's time people start understanding that the politicians don't care about you, they only care about your vote. They'll bend any of their principles in order to get your vote. I know liberals like pointing this out and how Republican politicians are falling in line with President Trump. But guess what? Your own party does it as well! And just as frequently. Heck, in Wisconsin they are running a guy that has been arrested 9 times, once for failure to pay child support. Yeah, they're pro-women, right?

So in another news, the biased media fired a reporter from KTTC for wearing a MAGA hat.

Again, this is why I refuse to work for news corporations.

And in the case of Keith Ellison, his accuser's claims were dismissed because there was no video of any abuse. So Ellison (so far) got off scot-free.

For decades Juanita Broderick was ignored to protect Bill Clinton's name. During the hearing Hillary waved the flag of survivors must be believed... as long as Bill isn't the one on the hook.

During Kavanaugh's hearing, Corey Booker bragged about his sexual conquests in high school. I guess he meets the standard for moral purity and is in a position to pass judgment on Kavanaugh.

It cannot be proven by any FBI probes, no corrobative evidence, due process, but there were so many who WANTED Kavanaugh to be guilty to support their accusations. And those who insist all sexual victims must be believed. Ask any of the above women how that's working out for them.

At any rate, Kavanaugh may not be guilty, but the way he acted during the hearing was unprofessional and I don’t think he’s gonna be a great Supreme Court judge.

People hate Trump, but at the end of the day I think they hate Kavanaugh more. I'm giving it 6 month till someone tries to kill him. Honestly with all the hate Trump has I'm surprised he hasn't been attacked.
