She’s on message with the Republicans:
“The Democratic Republic must die.”
Mitch and his gang are more interested in Roe v Wade, but this is 2nd on their list.
From what I saw of the hearings, Barrett is either very dim or super obtuse. But, then again, many SCOTUS nominees obfuscate on most of the questions put to them. But, I got the impression that had she been asked whether she thought the Earth was flat, she’d have no opinion.
What about term limits for Congress people? That dead on arrival, too?
With some folks, when you mention Roe v Wade, they think you’re talking about Basketball.
I think if this goes through, and Biden wins, and the Senate goes Democratic — then the SCOTUS is going to grow in size. I say GOOD!!! Raise it to twenty.
When a large number of her counterparts at Notre Dame say no we would listen.
Regardless of your feelings for those two subjects, if they violate the Constitution, they should be either struck down or amended by the legislature to meet the requirements of the Constitution. Obamacare (ACA) was purposely made convoluted in order for the ‘stupidity of the American voter’ (Jonathan Gruber) to allow passage. If that convolution makes it unconstitutional, blame Gruber and the Democrats.
How can a person who believes in absolute values as dictated by her faith arbitrate civil matters which are in conflict with that faith?
I expected a had written note with a black Sharpie rather than a ransom style note. At least she didn’t lie about “not speaking” to Trump. . . . . /s
A religious zealot might be a better way to describe her. And.. is the qualification trump needed to get the evangelists vote.
I noticed that a lot of women seem to have an almost instinctive response against Coney Barrett. I’m not sure if it is ideology or just the way she presents, her body language, that is putting them off.
Barrett is a liar who lied while under oath Tuesday.
@cdward — I hope they do expand the SCOTUS.
The Trumpublicans are sneering at the Democratic Party. “We Trumpublicans can do whatever we want, and those nicey-nicey wishy-washy Democrats will never stand up to us.”
The Democratic Party needs to fight hard, and stop imagining that the Trumpublicans will “play nice” or “play fair”. That’s pure fantasy.
The Democratic Party also needs to use the full force of the law to punish any misdeeds of Trump and Associates, whenever (pray to God soon) he is out of office. Turning the other cheek hasn’t worked with Republicans or Trumpuplicans for decades, and it won’t work now. Give them a free pass or a slap on the wrist, and it will be like authorizing them to do it again and more in the future.
It means she believes the law is “wholly writ” and should never evolve.
I believe it. She’ll uphold the sham that is textualism
This,this,this APPLICANT for the honor of Justice isn’t fit to have her initials used as an identifier. Prolly never will since there was only ONE justice with that privilege,u know,like Madonna,Cher et al……
She’s not a textualist, she is a far right extremist and not pro life, but pro fetus. Where does the GOP find these unqualified morons.
The language we speak isn’t even really the same English language that the Constitution was written in, and they want to be “textualists”.
Why? Because it’s easier to lie, cheat and steal when we play word games.
A religious bully who will not understand that she has no right to mandate what she thinks her imaginary friend has told her.
She is the Koch candidate. Watch environmental issues.
