Joe Scarborough: Kavanaugh Hearings ‘Were A Disaster for the Democratic Party’

WASHINGTON DC- OCTOBER 06 A

Many Republican voters have been trying to overturn Roe v Wade ever since it passed, electing pro-lifers to office who would then appoint pro-life judges to local and state courts and most importantly the Supreme Court.

Senate Democrats up for reelection in red states feared they could be kept in Washington while their Republican challengers ran free in their respective states.

"Only one side was happy to play host to this toxic fringe behavior", McConnell said.

More recent polling has also found voters' interest in Kavanaugh's confirmation overshadowed by other concerns.

Democrats argue that the party of Trump and the conservative tea party has nerve to decry such behavior. Fifty-six percent (56%) are angry about how the Senate treated Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, including 35% who are Very Angry.

Democrats say Trump's rhetoric since launching his 2016 campaign has been provocative, pugnacious and at times racist.

Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat running in West Virginia, which Trump won by 46 points, said he expected McConnell would demand a lot in return for letting Democrats go.


The Democratic candidate 45 percent. Dianne Feinstein, the 85-year-old California Democrat, deliberately sat on a letter from accuser Christine Blasey Ford for almost two months.

Nearly a decade ago, Democrats also assailed the Tea Party, grassroots conservatives who rallied against President Barack Obama's health care law and who angrily shouted down lawmakers at town hall meetings. One man in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, told a lawmaker that God will "judge you and the rest of your damned cronies on the Hill", while a Boston woman demanded to know, "Why do you continue to support a Nazi policy?" That crowd, which dwarfed the hundreds or several thousand anti-Kavanaugh demonstrators, vented anger at times, shouting "Liar, liar" and waving sings including one saying, "Bury Obama Care with Kennedy", a reference to Sen.

"He is mad as a mama wasp, and he is determined to get these nominations through", the Louisiana Republican said.

McConnell described protesters "literally storming the steps of the Capitol and the Supreme Court", confronting Republicans at restaurants and shouting from the Senate visitors' galleries during last week's debate and vote on Kavanaugh.

Hillary Clinton gave voice to this bitter frustration when she told CNN's Christiane Amanpour, "You can not be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about".

He also criticized former Attorney General Eric Holder. McConnell has called it a political gift. The nation's reckoning with power and who to believe about sexual misconduct has generated a new anger factor among the electorate and made the November 6 balloting a referendum on more than US President Donald Trump.

Fresh off the long and tumultuous confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was prepared to force Democrats' hands and keep them in Washington for weeks to confirm 15 judges sitting in limbo.
