    She was qualified.
    You never proved she wasn't. She beat out all others. Approved by congress.

    All USSC judge nominees are vetted and on the short list even before a position opens up.

    Is your issue with her is she is female and black?
    Is that an automatic disqualification?

    That’s RW horseshit, she’s going to be at LEAST as good as Barrette and exponentially better than Kavanaugh.

    do you think gender and race should trump real qualifications. People such as Pam Karlan-a lesbian Jewish leftist with impeccable credentials was ignored because she was white. Akhil Reed Amar-probably the most brilliant academic in the legal community was ignored because he's a male.

    Yes, they are real qualification.

    The world is full of different races and gender.
    It's not the only qualification. No 1 or 2 issues are ever the only qualifications.
    But they are qualifications none the less.

    You have no idea who or why people are ignored.
    Were those people on the already vetted list?
    trump appointed 3 people. He only made sure white was one of their qualifications. Based on your logic.

    I notice you didn't answer if her being black is an automatic disqualification in your view.

    Fine qualities for sure but Joe has none of them. He's a politician with the qualities of a chameleon. He shows you what you want to see.

    How would you know? You can only see what tRaitor tRump wants you to see through those tRumpublican colored glasses.

    I think that idea can be taken as seriously as your attacks on Justice Jackson.

    IMO, Biden is also in a struggle for political survival with his own inner circle. Job One for our corrupt bipartisan ruling political class has been to box in the POTUS from the transition forward.

    THE NATION
    How Did Joe Biden’s Foreign Policy Go So Off Course?
    The president set out to chart a more pacific and humane foreign policy after the Trump years but at some point he and his team of advisers lost the plot.

    I doubt that JRB's "team" ever "lost the plot". The post is always the problem with "Permanent Washington".

    Jackson is clearly an exceptionally intelligent capable lawyer/judge. Justices are political appointments. The very best legal scholars are seldom nominated, but they are always well qualified for the job.

    LOL.
    A 2x impeached incumbent loser supporter is worried about those traits?

    Funny.

    Biden's a very bad person. Why would anyone vote for him? Vote for Trump or RFK

    Yet you have nothing to substantiate that but your opinion. On the other hand the whole Nation and the World watched tRaitor tRump attempt to destroy the Constitution of The United States by fraudulently overturning a free and fair election. And that's the most obvious tRaitor tRump failure and says NOTING about the life time of fraud he's engaged in, most egregious of which was his robbing a charity for child cancer patients.

    I would leave RFK out of this if I were you. I mean... because your definition of "bad person" does not include having sexually abused women, torturing children, inciting an insurrection or calling white supremacists "good people". And RFK might have mental issues related to drug abuse. But I don't think he's a bad person. And your parameters for "good" and "bad" are clearly upside down. So it's an insult to him that you include him in your list.

    Fake News. He said both sides of the argument on whether or not to keep statues of Southern Generals were "good people".

    If those impeachments were anything more than a kangaroo court I'd worry about them but they were simply high comedy because Democrats had the power to do them. That you value them says more about you than it does about me.

    UNbelievable! You are clearly too far gone for there to be any hope.

    Saying that there are "good people" among White Supremacists thugs is like saying there are "good people" among Hamas Terrorists.

    But it's hopeless. This is beyond ridiculous so... don't bother....

    Oh and... BTW... uhmmmm.... no, there aren't!

    The Orange Stain. The Sore Loser is now on trial He had an 8-month affair, with a Playboy model, providing her a NYC apartment, while his wife, Melania was pregnant. Towards the tail end of that affair, while the affair was still going on, he had a tryst with a Porn Star. Meanwhile Joe Biden was faithful to his wife Jill.

    Fake news. He said there were good people on both sides of the statue controversy. Weird that you were previously unaware of that. Sad!

    You voting for one who has none of the traits listed while railing about those who vote for Biden because he as those traits says all there is to say about you.

    Voters saw it also. That's why he's the only incumbent voted out of POTUS this century.
    The other recent 1 term losers were Carter and Bush I. But neither of those 2 were impeached.

    Neither was as politically vulnerable as Trump. Again I'll say that we don't view that circus the same way.
