Hatred and want for revenge may feel good at the time, but they are bereft of any reason and logic. And despite conventional wisdom, they are poor motivators. Yet still, these too irrational emotions continue to be the catalyst for a lot of what goes on in Washington. And RINO Senator Jeff Flake just proved it once again. His hatred for the president has allowed another week’s destruction of a good man and unfortunate family.
from the American Spectator:
Jeff Flake Gives Democrats Cover (As Always)
A more low-down “conservative” is hard to imagine.
Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is a “great conservative.” Or, at least that’s what Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) argued on his way out of the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday. The reason for this bizarre (and inaccurate) praise? Senator Flake opted to turn what should have been a simple “yes” vote in favor of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court of the United States into a disaster for America’s democracy. In other words, a rousing success for the Democratic Party, handed to the Left by “conservative” Flake.
At present, the Supreme Court is set to resume hearing cases on October 1. Thanks to the antics of Senator Flake, who insisted that Kavanaugh’s confirmation process be complete (by having a final vote on the Senate floor) only after the FBI conducts a week-long investigation into Judge Kavanaugh’s background, Kavanaugh will not be eligible to preside over the next round of Supreme Court cases. The FBI background investigation will do little to assuage Kavanaugh’s critics. It will only buy them time. With little more than a month before the midterms, time is precisely what the Left (and some #NeverTrump Republicans) need.
Had the Senate Republicans behaved in a competent manner befitting the majority party (there’s a thought), Kavanaugh would have been pushed through the confirmation process in just three days. Instead, the public character assassination of Brett Kavanaugh was allowed to go on for ten days before the final round of hearings for the Senate Judiciary Committee commenced. When those proceedings ended, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to allow Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote to move to the Senate floor. But, thanks to Flake, there will now be more needless delay.
