Disgracing the process

On Sept. 4 I watched the opening statements on Judge Kavanaugh’s hearing to the Supreme Court. The Dems tried to stop the hearings, however what is most disgusting was the mockery made by folks against his nomination. Interrupting most GOP senators as they spoke in favor of the judge.

I waited for one Democrat to speak up to stop the mockery. None did. What a disgrace to this very important process. And even more disgusting than the mockery is the Dems needed permission to even speak to the Judge from Sen. Schumer.

What in the hell has happened in Washington D.C.? The Dems appear to be in lock stop with Schumer until he says they can vote (vote to keep their seats). Not so much for the Judge.

At least the GOP members on other issues do not go in lock stop with their leaders. They do not like or approve what Speaker Ryan or Senator McConnell wants. They say so and vote the way their supporters want.
