Senator Chuck Schumer (D NY) is a disgusting pig.
What he said about Judge Samuel Alito ranks as some of the most rank rhetoric spewed by a sitting Senator in some time:
The real question today is whether Judge Alito would use his seat on the bench, just as Rosa Parks used her seat on the bus, to change history for the better or whether he would use that seat to reverse much of what Rosa Parks and so many others fought so hard and for so long to put in place.
I can’t believe the Left gets away with this BS. At its core, his message is that conservatives are inherently racist. We hate minorities and want separate bathrooms, drinking fountains, etc.
Senator or not, this guy is a Grade AA Asshole.
A preliminary review of his record raises real questions about Judge Alito's judicial philosophy and his commitment to civil rights, workers' rights, women's rights, the rights of average Americans which the courts have always looked out for.
How about his commitment to the United States Constitution you pampered prick.
Now, it's sad that the president felt he had to pick a nominee likely to divide America instead of choosing a nominee in the mold of Sandra Day O'Connor who would unify us.
By “divide America” he means “piss off the Left.”
But the president seems to want to hunker down in his bunker and is more concerned about smoothing the ruffled feathers of the extreme wing of his party than about governing all of America and changing history for the better.
Sorry, Chucky, but putting up Alito is hardly hunkering down, as you put it. It looks to me like an all out offensive against the fringe Left that you think is mainstream.
The president had an opportunity to nominate someone in the mold of Sandra Day O'Connor, a mainstream, albeit conservative, who would unite the country, not further decide us.
Any division is completely up to how you and your Leftist friends decide to proceed with this nomination. So far, I’m not impressed.
It is an immutable law of history that when a president tries to govern from the extreme, his presidency and the country end up losing. Democrats learned this when we governed from the far left. President Bush will learn this as well.
For someone who says he hasn’t made up his mind, he certainly seems to have made up his mind.
As for Judge Alito, there is still a lot to be learned about him. Many of the opinions that he has written over the last 15 years cast real doubt on whether he can be a fair, mainstream, albeit conservative, judge who strives to protect the rights of all Americans, instead of a judge who will use his power to restrict those rights and legislate from the bench.
You mean how the fair, mainstream, albeit liberal, judges protected property rights in Kelo v. Connecticut?
Why does this transparent piece of Camel spittle insist on pretending he’s going to approach the nomination with an open mind?
Does he really think he’s fooling the people of this country?
If only the people of New York would come to their senses and run this prick out of office at their next opportunity, the Senate would have a much nicer smell to it.
