Just watched an hour of the Sessions confirmation hearing

    Jeff Sessions is not a new guy. He's a card carrying member of the swamp who is so racist that he was denied federal judgeship during Ronald Reagan's time in office.

    And folks couldn't wait for Billy G to take over.

    And then he took over.


    Excellent analogy. Spot on.

    This. Ted Cruz let a man disrespect his wife and family on live TV in front of the whole world and didn't do anything. My wife would divorce me if I acted like Ted Cruz did. All for the power he'll sacrifice his self respect and his wife's name.

    Easy. I didn't mean underage girls. I meant that Mr Trump in previous comments has made it very clear (some comments he wanted to get out - some he didn't) that he likes going after hot, younger women i.e. the link to Billy Clyde.

    Especially when there is no doubt that the nominees will be confirmed.

    It will be interesting to hear how Mr Tillerson responds to questions about his companies selling to countries that were on the banned list due to state-sponsored terrorism. Again, it will have no bearing but it will be something he has to answer.

    When it comes to these hearings we need to take the recent advice of Kelly Conway when asked about what President Trump says : It's not the words it's what's in the heart.

    Do racists change?
    Did Sen Byrd change? I doubt it. I think it's either in you or it's not. I'd question anyone who said any of Sen Sessions' views have progressed.

    Same here. Learning how to keep your mouth shut now means progressive.

    So you can't argue against what he said, only that you don't respect him?

    Apparently enough that he was denied a federal judgeship because of his racist past. He was racist enough that MLK's wife wrote a letter saying that he shouldn't be allowed to become a federal judge. Ask those folks what he did that was racist.

    So you cant provide anything? Its a pretty serious claim imo to call someone racist...and before someone does it they should have some proof.

    You're right. Him being racist was probably just made up by those people. Good call.

    Yeah but where is the proof? Anyone can claim anything, but proof is what is needed.
    Just because a person thinks something doesnt mean its correct.

    Supposedly he prosecuted blacks for "voter fraud" when they were trying to help get blacks and other minorities registered, but ignored whites that were doing the same. Apparently what these guys were doing was protected under the Civil Rights Act, but he went after them anyways.

    That's one thing I came across from doing a quick search.
