Democrats demonstrate their bad faith in fight over Supreme Court appointment
Democrats in recent years no longer look at the facts and engage in reasoned argument. They go right to Defcon 1 with false and misleading arguments designed to appeal to their unthinking base. They seek to frighten rather than enlighten. They do this because they see the court, not as was intended by the framers, but as a means to cram down their weird agenda that they know would be rejected by the voters. It is hard to have any respect for this kind of below the belt fighting.
- Democrats painted Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court nominee, as an arch-conservative who would endanger abortion rights and health care.
- The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, excoriated Democrats for declaring their opposition to Judge Kavanaugh even before his nomination was announced.
