    So being catholic is the wrong stuff. Feinstein practices Judaism, that is the right stuff?

    Feinstein is nothing but an actor who pretends a lot of things she isn't......:steamed:

    There have been a couple of articles floated around on here that says that Democrats crossed party lines to vote for her.....3 of them, IIRC. But I don't have the writing in front of me at the moment.

    Alright, well....I hope I'm wrong. It's just that, when I hear "Catholic Liberal Arts Women's College", it doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

    But okay. I guess. I still would rather have someone who is a proven, staunch Conservative. Or even that cute little Latina from Cuba whatshername....

    I don't know much about any of the candidates. I'm rooting for whichever one pisses off the left the most.

    Thats the norm for every judge except Kavanaugh. Lots of Senators from both sides used to cross party lines to vote strictly based on qualifications. 10 Democrats voted for Clarence Thomas, a staunch conservative and 5 Republicans voted to confirm Elena Kagan, a liberal. One or two Dems might even vote for Barrett, maybe.

    Politics didn't used to be this hyper-partisan. The rise of the radical left and the brashness of Trump has changed that.

    A modern day Joan of Arc, lets hope the Dems don't set her a blaze too, but she is headed for the coals of hell for sure.

    They will go after her religion(anti-gay) and stance on abortion. Every Dem and media source will continue to repeat the same anti gay and anti abortion talking points. The lefties go crazy when you threaten their abortion rights. Kamala Harris is on record multiple times for being anti Catholic. Harris doesn't believe Catholics should be high level judges.

    The leftists are prepping Barrett`s accusers right now. Just a shame how these leftists lie and cheat. If Trump throws a curve ball and names someone other than Barrett, all the leftists will do is just change the name on the already written lie-O-meter.

    Trump has to pick Barrett, she's the most likely choice to drive the Lefty Democrats over the edge.

    I see.

    Well.....alright, I guess. Go Barrett.

    It could always be worse.

    I think Trump might go for the Cuban vote in FL.

    Barrett is the closest we'll get to a Scalia.

    Was Scalia for open borders? Folks might want to look into this Barrett character a little deeper. There is a couple other questionable things about her as well, too.

    From what I’ve been reading, she’s very strong on 2A, even speaking on the issue that gun rights are an individual right, and that even people with felonies should be looked at from whether they pose a dangerous risk for owning a gun or not.

    I’m not finding a whole lot that I’m concerned about.

    Look what happened after we got Roberts.
    Lets just hope she follows the constitution and not her feelings of what she thinks laws should be.

    If you don't think she will follow the Constitution, you know nothing about her.

    Who would you prefer to "this Barrett character" that is on DJT's list, is not a US Senator whose vote we would lose, and has a chance for confirmation? Please share.

    If she is the pick and they televise the hearings, the Democrats are in trouble.

    I just watched an interview with her.

    Did you know that 2 of her seven children were adopted ....From Haiti? I didn’t.
