Their High Horse Hypocrisy

I'm waiting for the Transcript to come through so when it does I will provide it here. Chuck Schumer fell in line today with his Far-left handlers by reading an opening statement that seemed to be written by MoveOn.org itself. The conformation hearing of the well Qualified Sam Alito was threatened yesterday with a filibuster by Schumer and other obstructionist democrats. Schumer Threatens Filibuster. Today, in the beginning of the Supreme Court confirmation hearing, we heard Schumer threaten Alito by attempting to order him to answer all questions despite precedent. Schumer also said that this nomination was to “placate the far-right.” Dick Durbin, the democrat who compared the US military to Nazis, is as I type using this hearing to attack the president’s authority to fight the war on terrorism. He is now using the life of Rosa Parks in an attempt to insinuate that Alito will take away are basic freedoms. He is now trying to blame Judge Alito's stance on Coal mining regulation for the Sago mine accident. I can’t type fast enough to write down all of this nonsense.

A Small Sample of The Partisanship:
"In an era when the White House is abusing power, is excusing and authorizing torture and is spying on American citizens, I find Judge Alito's support for an all-powerful executive branch to be genuinely troubling," said Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.

"Your record raises troubling questions about whether you appreciate the checks and balances in our Constitution...to protect us from a government or a president determined to seize too much power over our lives," said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.

"The same critics who called the president on the carpet for naming Harriet Miers have rolled out the red carpet for you," Schumer said. "We would be remiss if we did not explore why." Chuck Schumer, D-NY
