Bork-ing and its cousins alive and well...It's a good strategy: keep asking for documents, whether you need them or not (Schumer just today even admitted most of the 75,000+ pages already released may not be needed themselves...he just wants them 'in case'), until you run across something you KNOW they won't release, and then cry foul! They KNOW these documents will not be released because they are those that no administration would release.
The simple fact is, the armies of the left and the armies of the right were all set for battle over this, and this guy is tossed out there...NOTHING to fight about! The left wanted someone they could label a right wing extremist for their own political expediency...they wanted a fight. The far right...well...they just wanted a right wing extremist. Now, they need to scour reams of obscure documents to try to find something they can raise a stink about. This time, however, even Ole Uncle Tedward has told his left wing cronies not to count on a filibuster or any other attempt at blocking this nominee. I have not yet seen one Democrat raise any objections...other than Schumer and Leahy attempting to play the game they have played with every Bush nominee to every position, as outlined above...but, again, even they have raised no serious questions.
So far, integrity and no mud-slinging...which will reverse quickly the minute the likes of Schumer and Leahy start playing their games. If they have questions for the nominee, they will have to ask and, if appropriate (see Ginsburg and Breyer), he will answer them. Nobody has cited any reason why they would not be able to trust his answers. The bottome line is, they want to get him to commit on the abortion issue...basically prejudge a case before it even gets to the court, if ever.
Southside Irish...our two teams are the White Sox and whoever plays the Cubs!
