So, since 78% of people's representatives in the senate voted in favor of Roberts
He'll only do that if he's announcing a real wack-job.
We learn a lot about the 22 knuckleheads who voted against him -- partisan hacks the lot of 'em.
On Bob Flynn's comment, I would say that being a "partisan hack" is part of the job description when one works in the legislative branch.
But I would have expected more from Barack Obama. He should know better than to vote against someone so qualified and such a mainstream conversative.
Why don't we wait until he actually starts writing opinions before we define his judicial philosophy?
That'll give the MSM a full weekend to contruct their opposition to whomever it is and it'll be Monday before their audience (such as it is) hears it.
The 17th Article of Amendment is hereby repealed.
Cl. 1 No person shall be a member of the United States Congress for more than twelve consecutive years in any fourteen years.
Cl. 2 Any person who would, if elected, during the course of their term violate §2 Cl.1, shall be ineligble for election.
Cl. 1 The United States Senate shall consist of two Senators from each State.
Cl. 2 Each Senator shall be elected by a joint ballot of the legislature of the State which they will represent.
Cl. 3. For vacancies arising as a foreseeable consequence of the expiry of a term, the legislature will convene no later than six months before the opening of the Congress in which the seat shall be vacant, to fill the vacancy.
Cl. 3. No Senate seat will go vacant for longer than six months. If the state legislature cannot be called into session, or if they cannot agree upon a candidate within six months of an unforeseeable vacancy arising, the Governor of the State shall appoint a person, whose commission shall expire on confirmation of their successor by the State Legislature.
Cl. 5 No person will be elected to represent a state in which they have not resided for at least five years, nor who has not attained an age of 35 years.
You consider them more liberal because they just "don't get" something that's so obvious to you.
The more power you give state legislatures, the more attention people will pay to getting good ones.
The implication of "their audience, such as it is" would be that their audience is relatively small.
But if their audience is relatively small, surely, by definition, they aren't mainstream? What is the definition of "mainstream" other than in the middle of the public?
If you want 100% agreement, move to Iran. You'd fit in there or in Sadaam's Iraq, or in Hitler's Germany.
