    She is only getting the job because of her butt-kissing to tRUMP.
    We will have to live with this for 35 to 40 years. This is insane. Need term limits
    across the board. Hope the Z generation is paying attention and will do something about the entire system. We need to the big money out of Washington-they buy their candidates.

    Barrett doesn't know the five basic freedoms granted by our first Amendment. The more Barrett speaks the more un-American she sounds. Things we know since school and Barrett doesn't know or support.

    People will die in the streets. Her religion should not be an issue. She needs to quit preaching . One of the beatitudes says"care for the sick." No health care will not care for the sick. She has no conscience.

    The Republicans will force this nomination through so focus instead on building the blue wave to flush out the "Orange Menace" from the WH … 😉

    Given that many nominees for various positions are extremely political, such as "stacking" the supreme court with either right wing or left wing judges, these positions should require a 60-40 vote.
    That way, a nominee will be much more carefully selected.

    Well that's that sorted then, we now have a devout Christian Judge. So that will be bye bye to the sexist, racist, failed businessman, compulsive liar of a president who only cares about himself. HAPPY DAYS 🙂

    Ted Cruz is a moron. He forgot his Mexican roots. Hits a disgrace that he carries one of our sur names, and he can't stand people coming from his own heritage. Hopefully his parents are deceased, or they'd be ashamed of his betrayal.

    Dogs Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz are talking about going back to their vomit and eating it up. Barrett is a foregone conclusion. She has sold her soul to the devil Trump, GOP, and far right black money!

    Objections are about. Preconceived opinions

    I can't believe that if Judge Amy Barrett has even one ounce of respect for the Law for the people of US. She should have let the people of US decide the president before even excepting this nominee as a Supreme Court Judge. The right things to do is to decline this offer, but seeing she isn't just goes to show how unfit she is to be as a Supreme Court Judge. She wants more of Her authority not the People.
