    But this whole thing is an alleged incident that occurred 35 years ago

    That is relevant how? You said when this happens Democrats believe the accuser regardless of the accused party. The most obvious example of this being false is Bill Clinton who at the time had more credible and recent accusations made against him, and the Democrats treated his accusers WAY worse than the Republicans are treating Dr. Ford. Remember Carvilles "you never know what you'll get when you wave $100 bills around a trailer court" when describing one of Clinton's accusers. I also notice you didn't mention Ellison, who currently has abuse allegations made against him with witnesses, and if I'm not mistaken, medical documentation.

    Tell that to Mary Jo Kopechne's family, Paula Jones, Juanita Broderick, and more recently (currently), Keith Ellison's ex-girlfriend.

    They (Democrats) may be wrong; but I'm pretty sure it's their motivation

    Yep, and if I had to guess, in 2020 the Democrats will use the "McConnell Rule" if a vacancy on the Supreme Court opens up; and who could blame them?

    My first instinct is to answer "Joe Biden Rule".....but actually as much as I would have hated it, I think the Garland nomination probably should have moved forward.

    They knew about the letter Feinstein had but didn't know exact allegations, so began the process of getting their letter written and signed.

    Nope. I prefer the days when the Senate, with about 75 of the same Senators, unanimously, or nearly unanimously confirmed both Scalia and Ginsburg to the court, because both sides understood the consequences of losing Presidential elections

    I disagree. The hope here for Democrats is that if they can sink this nomination, there will not be enough time to confirm a different nominee before the midterms, and if they can win the Senate (Not probable, but certainly possible) they will have the votes to reject any nominee Trump nominates.

    I'm sure that's true, but there's a big difference between telling/bragging to people you're sleeping with a teacher and running around telling people you assaulted someone.

    If I recall correctly, Sen. Feinstein had the letter, but didn't share it with anyone on the committee. There were rumors that the letter contained allegations that would call into question the integrity of Kavanaugh. Republicans were not sitting on any evidence, because Feinstein wasn't sharing it with anyone. But they did know that Kavanaugh's integrity was potentially going to be questioned. In this situation, it is not odd, rare, wrong nor unethical, to have 65 women who have known and/or worked for him for many years, sign a letter vouching for his integrity.

    1) Since I didn't vote for Trump, not sure I have to claim them as "my team". 2) If the allegation isn't true, it's not Kavanaughs baggage to be falsely accused of something. 3) If the allegation is true, this is all on Kavanaugh, as my guess would be that no one knew about this before Dr. Ford came forward

    But my guess is one of the following occurred. 1) The boy being held down told someone (Dr. Ford said she told no one) 2) The boy doing the peeing told someone (Judge Kavanaugh said he didn't do it) 3) The boys holding down the boy told someone (The only other person allegedly in the room, said this didn't happen) 4) Someone else saw it (There are no witnesses in this case) Without one of those four things happening, how can "many people hear about it"?

    So, Dr. Ford says she told no one, but "many of them heard about it in School?" So, to believe both of these ladies, we have to believe that a 17 year old Brett Kavanaugh ran around telling people he did this....doesn't seem likely.

    I don't think it is only about Roe v Wade, but it is certainly more about the direction of the court than it is the alleged incident.

    He has sent a letter to the Judiciary committee stating that he has no recollection of this alleged assault occurring.

    Of course the Republicans were honest about what they were doing in following a rule that Joe Biden suggested in 1992 that a President shouldn't nominate a Supreme Court Justice during an election year; and of course it was political maneuvering. The Democrats are pretending to care about an alleged, unreported, misdemeanor assault from 35 years ago, that they knew about 2 1/2 months ago, only to bring it up after the confirmation hearings had concluded, with one purpose, to delay the confirmation. If Feinstein truly cared about this, she would have asked Kavanaugh about it in her private interviews with him.

    Let's be honest, the only reason Dr. Ford and the Dems want an FBI investigation is because it will push the confirmation vote past the mid-term elections. It's the same reason Sen Fienstein Sat on the letter for 6 weeks.

    Yep, don't tell the truth under oath, don't get confirmed. But has to be actually not telling the truth about something substinative, not some minor "got ya".

    Don't totally disagree with your first statement. Removing term limits would take a constitutional amendment, doubt it will ever happen, and not sure it should.

    And Judicial philosophy has nothing to do with it? So if this were Breyer or Souter, they would be gone as well?

    Assuming for a moment that everything Dr. Ford is alleging occurred exactly as she says, and let's say she immediately reported it to the authorities., does anyone really think that Brett Kavanaugh would have been charged with anything more than a misdemeanor assault? I don't. So, If I am correct, the new standard would now be that an unreported misdemeanor assault, from 35 years ago, would be enough to keep someone off the Supreme Court. And this new standard is being set by the party (Democrats), who are pushing "ban the box" bills that would forbid employers from asking potential employees if they have been convicted of a felony on their employment application.
