    Lucy will pull this one out from under you, too.

    Roberts can say whatever he wants, just as have other Bush nominees - Ashcroft being one of the most memorable examples - but also including Gonzales, Rice and . . . well, you name it.

    These people aren't where they are because they are second-rate liars and smooth talkers. They are first rate liars and smooth talkers.

    So, to me, these hearings are one big waste of time.

    You vote on the record. Period.

    And that means you vote NO.

    •  well (none)
      If you vote just on Roberts records, not on any of his writings that people try to make him seem racist etc it seems pretty clear that Roberts is pretty non-objectionable.

      1. He's argued in front of the court, for a number of good and mediocre good causes, and done a good job at it.

      2.  He's done some decent pro-bono work.

      3.  He's not been controversial on the appeals court.

      4.  He's been through the process at least once already, and handily confirmed.

      If you go only on the RECORD, he's just a squeak - nothing to get worked up about.

        What is in the part that is being held back?

        Democrats give you the Bill of Rights; Republicans sell you a bill of goods!

        •  what a joke (none)
          The record is what is PUBLIC.  That's what a record is.

          You are talking about the files, the writings, the behind the scenes stuff.

          That's not his record.

          You contradict yourself.
