How did Kerry spin that?
25 Democratic Senators joined our effort to filibuster the Alito nomination – that’s more votes to filibuster the Alito nomination than there were votes against Justice Roberts’ nomination itself just a few months ago.OK, what did he REALLY say?
A day later, 42 Senators voted against Alito’s nomination. That’s the highest number of votes against any Supreme Court nominee since Clarence Thomas in 1991.
He departed by a back staircase and kept walking as reporters chased him and asked why he had decided to interrupt his trip to a world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland. "I knew ahead of time that if there was a filing" to end debate, "I would be back," Kerry said before entering his car.Does anyone have ANY idea what that means?
You know, the more I see of Kerry, the more I am reminded of another failed politician from New England. He was said to have a "Lincoln-like" exterior, too.
Judge for yourself. I think they both resemble someone else rather well-known.
