I voted no, for one simple reason: We can't afford to lose any more Republicans in the Senate!
Or......no matter who is nominated, the D's will just find someone willing to make up a few total lies.....ala: Christine Blasey Ford!
I think she is front runner. However, she has two strikes against her. 1. not ivy JD and 2. professed strong Catholic. Also, has a BIG plus. She clerked for Scalia. BTW, I love her because the Left hates her, perhaps more than Cruz and that is saying something.
Probably need every senator you can get for a pick to happen. Can Cruz vote on Cruz?
I hope not. She went to a women's only Liberal Arts College, and has no history on judgements on 2nd Amendment Issues. I have a feeling she'd be one of those obnoxious Catholics who think that babies shouldn't be murdered, and that guns kill people by themselves.
I want Colion Noir. Completely unrealistic, but a man can hope.
Well, the 2nd amendment is under attack, so we do need someone with history, as well as knowledge of just why our founders included the 2A.......and exactly what they meant. We have too many people who want to twist the words to mean something the founders never intended.
Trump knows this all too well, so I'm sure whomever he nominates, will be in the mold of Antonin Scalia.
He is supposedly on the "Short List"
This is the rundown from a 'LIBERAL' website. SORRY If this wasn't clear...
Condoleezza Rice? There is nothing that says you have to be a lawyer. She does have a PHD and working knowledge of federal procedures.
I think lying Ted would be a great judge. But I don't think he said he was interested.
I have a distinct suspicion that a few people are willing to give a woman an edge in this process. I hadn't considered it before this moment, but that may be an advantage because we currently don't have any women who are willing to take a stand for the original intent of the COTUS.........
We might be better served if there are a few "cat fights" among the woman justices.......rather than to be seen as women vs men in the SCOTUS.
If I'm remembering right, CR is very pro 2nd amendment.
Or Trump during the primaries, he certainly wasn't pulling any punches on Lyin' Ted.
Yes I think Cruz would be great on the SCOTUS, but I don't think he wants to go there ... yet.
IMPO, If Trump has ANY CHANCE of getting his nomination on the bench, it's GOT to be a woman.
A WHITE GUY will never make the cut.
Likely true. Sad that we have to play race/gender identity politics as well, in stead of picking the best option.
Any black females on the short list?
I voted yes, but he wouldn't be able to vote for his own confirmation and we need every vote we can get.
It needs to be a woman, a minority would be a plus. We have to keep Romney and the other moderates in line and not give them any excuse to vote no.
I'm not up on Federal Appellate Judges and I do hate that this game has to be played. But putting up a qualified, black, conservative woman for Dems to slander and refuse to confirm days before an election is too good an opportunity to pass on. I just don't know if one exists.
I say no, but only because we need him in the Senate where we have a narrow majority.
She's an establishment Republican from the Bush wing of the party. She could turn out to be another John Roberts.
I would like to see Cruz as a justice but at this point in time his senate seat should not be jeopardized.
