  •  While I think Alito (4.00)
    should be filibustered because of his extreme views on Presidential power, Roe, civil rights, etc.

    I also firmly believe that there is a simple explanation/reason for a filibuster and that is that he LIED. He was sworn in in front of the United States Senate and he proceeded to LIE about why he put CAP on his application in 1985, but left it off the papers he filed with the judiciary committee for the Supreme Court.

    In my opinion, liars shouldn't be on the court.

    That is in addition to all the other reasons...but it certainly ads to the problem.

      Not to mention the fact that he lied to the judiciary comittee 15 years ago. When being vetted for his current position on the 3rd Circuit, he explicitly stated that he would recuse himself from any case involving Vanguard Investments. 10 years later, he delivered a majority opinion on a case that ruled in favor of Vanguard at a time when he held several thousand dollars worth of investments in Vanguard.

      I agree with you completely, proven LIARS have no place on any judicial bench in this country much less the Supreme Court.

      Crystal,
          Please convey my sincerest thanks to Senator Kennedy for standing up for those of us who feel that we no longer have a voice!
