    Re: Brett Kavanaugh

    And then this... White House limits scope of the FBI's allegations against Brett Kavanaugh

    Hmmm. I can't seem to post a link, so here it is: http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/poli...m_npd_ms_fb_ma

    Re: Brett Kavanaugh

    'They can do whatever they have to do. They'll be doing things we have never even thought of,'

    That was Trump yesterday. Of course, right on cue, contradicting everything he and the rest of the GOP had previously stated that the Senate staff is adequate enough to do the investigating.

    Had Grassley and Trump been smart, they would have spared Kavanaugh from making a public fool of himself and spared the rest of us from having to witness what their choice of a SCOTUS justice looks like under pressure by handing this off to the FBI when they became aware of it. It makes no difference when Feinstein made them aware of Ford's letter. Let the nominee stand on his own in the face of the accusations, if he's as perfect as they claim then there's nothing to be afraid of.

    2. Maybe you might behave this way. A highly trained professional is expected to conduct his/her self with maturity and aplomb:
    "a·plomb
    self-confidence or assurance, especially when in a demanding situation.
    synonyms: poise, self-assurance, self-confidence, calmness, composure, collectedness, levelheadedness, sangfroid, equilibrium, equanimity; unflappability"

    In other words, behave with dignity and self control.

    Re: Brett Kavanaugh

    Don't forget AZ Senator Flake (Mr. Red Face) requesting a FBI investigation. Of course that was after he was approached at the elevator.

    And all the poise - self assurance- composure - Kavanah lost his temper.
    Perhaps this is a example on how he'll conduct himself as a judge?
    Kavanah - do you really want this position? He's putting his whole family through these accusations & end result.
    interesting mess.

    I should not have written that, mea culpa. Problem is she wanted anonymity but was betrayed. I don't believe Sen Feinstein her self did that. She was never told she could do this behind closed doors, the Judiciary Committee would travel to California. To bad nobody told her that, like her lawyers.

    Her tears were real, thanks to the duplicity of certain Democrats.

    AGAIN? I am just glad she decided to spend a couple of weeks visiting her Mom.

    Self-control? I think he did pretty good on that score. I to bad he got some noses out of joint.

    I don't see as he lost it, rather he came in to express his anger.

    Sometimes poise and aplomb just don't cut it.

    Well, all tha crap about the Clintons and the Democrats out to torpedo his nomination kinda discolored his bi-partisan demeanor.

    I have to say, all that came across as a temper tantrum like a teenager might offer up when they're caught.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    You don't think there was any kind of set up? Ford wanted it to be confidential, they sat on it for almost two months then leaked it at the eleventh hour to stall the vote. The four witnesses Ford named all came out and said it didn't happen as far as they knew, It happened over 36 years ago, he has been through 6 F.B.I. investigations already just to get to where he is. Have you heard of any actual evidence? Do we live in a country that you are innocent until proven guilty?

    I totally understand his "tantrum" if he is innocent. What is he supposed to do if this is just a setup, just continue to let it ruin his reputation? I don't care if he drank a lot of beer in highschool and college, what has he done the last 25 years? Is it really important that he played drinking games and had a nickname for farts in highschool?

    Insist the FBI investigate to uncover not only the facts that would clear him but also uncover the wrongdoers. It's already out there and sweeping it under the rug certainly won't clear his good name, will it?

    That aside; I'd be interested in understanding the setup itself. Anyone who is sure it is a setup should be able to explain it to those of us who don't see it yet.

    Would you care to elucidate us?
