    • @Tidbit so wait…. Both you and I know absolutely nobody who died of the Chinese Originated Viral Infectious Disease 19, but……….. It’s super duper deadly that we have to shut down the economy??????

      Thanks for proving my point

    • @Kevin stevens dude… Just wait….

      *How Democrats Seeded the 2008 Financial Crisis*

      *An exposition on Democrat policies which created the 2008 crisis of confidence in our economy, and paved a path for Barack Obama’s election.*
      Sept 2008 https://patriotpost.us/alexander/3150

      *The dramatic downturn in the housing markets began when Democrats took control of Congress in 2006, and the financial collapse began after Obama was named the Democrat presidential nominee in August of 2008.*

      Coincidence?

      The Democrats had been undermining consumer confidence in the housing and financial markets for so long that potential home buyers and investors took the bait. The resulting crisis of confidence and the fear that fueled it, gave Obama the victory.

      Housing crisis history

      The enormous risk that Sen. McCain warned of in 2005 has now manifested as a financial crisis of staggering proportions. This crisis can trace its roots to Democrat initiatives to undermine free market banking practices in favor of targeted constituencies.

      The Community Reinvestment Act was passed by Democrats of the 95th Congress and signed into law by Jimmy Carter in 1977. It coerced lending institutions to make loans “to the entire community,” undermining means testing to qualify applicants for mortgages.

      *Democrats WERE responsible for the 2008 Financial Crisis*
      March 2014 https://www.liberalforum.org/topic/160897-democrats-were-responsible-for-the-2008-financial-crisis/

      *Democrats LOVE to blame George Bush for the Financial meltdown that occurred in 2008, BUT the TRUTH is that Democrats were VERY much involved, and responsible, for allowing it to happen… The Liberal media never reported it (which is another reason most INFORMED people don’t trust the “Liberal Media”)… This subject came up in another thread, but I thought it DESERVED it’s OWN discussion… so…*

      The “sub Prime” loans meltdown occurred, because loans were made to people who couldn’t afford them… BUT, DO YOU KNOW that it was Bill Clinton who got THAT ball rolling in 2008?… He sued the major banks and WON a Huge settlement ( $2.1 Billion… a lot of money in 1998)… He FORCED the banks to make loans they didn’t really want to make, and evidently made assurances to them against any losses (too big to fail)… Anderew Cuomo (HUD secretary under Bill Clinton) announced the lawsuit victory… Here is a You-tube video of that announcement… if you listen to the end, you’ll hear that he was ASKED about potential defaults & loan failures… but he just pu-pu’d it….

    • Obviously you don’t know what your name means

    • @Mueller Time WTF are you talking about. What a tool you are and a useless one at that

  4. The Houston astros are analogous to trump and his enablers?

  5. Changing the rules? Oh, you mean like saying we can’t confirm a nomination 210 days before an election in 2016 but then saying we can when it’s 21 days before an election in 2020? 🤔
    And this right here is why normal people hate the republican party. 😅😂🤣

    • @Mueller Time Get over it? You mean like t’rump’s claim that Obama spied on him? Whatever happened to that? And that “unmasking” scandal that was going to bring indictments? Oh yeah, that’s right, Barr had to drop it this week due to “gross lack of evidence.” Shocking! 😅😂🤣

    • @Ethan aka fun fact, Ruth is dead and so is the 22 amendment.

      Trump runs til he dies. Enjoy

    • @ian collins yep!!!

    • @Mueller Time GTFO, cult 45 trash.

    • @Mueller Time <---don't engage these magats. They are a few weeks away from slithering back to their tar pits. I report them for spam, I didn't come here to see advertising for drump. FO, brain washed clown.

  6. Bringing up the Houston Astros( who look like they are about to swept from the postseason )and then comparing them to the Democrats? Republicans will reach for anything to smear the Democratic Party won’t they? Like Republicans aren’t cheating right now when they’re trying to bum-rush Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court 4 years after holding Justice Scalia’s seat vacant for a whole year because they didn’t want Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court….?? Friggin’ hypocrites.

    Democrats didn’t block 108 federal judges during the Obama administration and Democrats aren’t packing the courts over the past 4 years.

    • Magical Frijoles | October 14, 2020 at 5:00 PM | Reply

      But, we can if we win the Presidency and Senate! Go vote.

    • Do you know what packing the court means?

    • Magical Frijoles | October 14, 2020 at 6:47 PM | Reply

      @Maryella I do and I am super excited for the Democrats to do it in January!

    • @Magical Frijoles what will they do, that is just like what Republicans have done?

    • Christine King | October 14, 2020 at 9:03 PM | Reply

      @Maryella Add two more justices, for one. I’m not sure what you mean by “just like what Republicans have done”. I haven’t seen Democrat governors engage in voter suppression this election, Repubs certainly have in potential swing states. The Trumplican politicians who denied President Obama’s nominee have no qualms rushing through Barrett. Just in time for the election. And the ACA, during a pandemic.

  8. Does he realize he’s talking about his own party? I mean, talk about changing the rules…

    So my question to Ben Sasse would be what is it called when a President asks foreign nations to interfere with the nation’s political process?

  11. Mister Sarajevo | October 14, 2020 at 3:16 PM | Reply

    LOL, whatever.

    At least Democrats don’t suppress POC votes & ask for foreign help.

    • Antony Sansone | October 14, 2020 at 3:17 PM | Reply

      At least Republicans minus RINO’s don’t worship satan/molech molest torture sacrifice and eat children.

  12. Man, I keep forgetting Republicans are not what they used to be, I miss Jeff flake and most of all John McCain. Character and decorum are nothing to these cultist orchestrators that pull stings for a show and complete disregard for the fallout. Brings up baseball for an analogy, cute,and nice I must say, but no mention of the ones that have gotten sick. Kinda lame sen.

  13. Let’s talk about fair rules for both sides. Republicans said they would bring a nominee for SCOTUS in the year before a presidential election to be consistent with the Republican refusal to consider Obama’s selection! Hypocrites!

    • @Craig Owensby You are aware of the difference between a statement and a rule right? They made a statement and they went back on that statement, which sucks, but it’s not a rule. As far as a “rule” goes, they have every right to do what they are doing, and if you think for one second that Democrats would not do it In the same position, you are insane.

    • @Maryella “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” — Mitch McConnell (2016)

  14. This is a senate hearing, not a freaking sports commentary WTF

    • It’s about playing on emotions to get votes

    • @David should it not be about JUSTICE?

    • @MantasIt should be but it’s really about power on both sides. There’s only one side in politics and the people do not matter.

      Because asking one of the most brilliant attorneys in the world if she’s engaged in sexual harassment and if she condones white supremacy (when she’s adopted two Haitian children) is exactly where to start with questioning. Now those questions are representative of high-quality individuals. You’ve got to be kidding me – at least he had a point.

  15. Wait what.Now we are talking sports for a judge confirmation hearing.This is nuts.stay safe.✌

    Our president lied to the American People about Covid 19

    • @John S. Greene Trump said it was bad long before the tape came out if people didnt know a virus with no vaccine is bad that just means your stupid and nothing Trump does can fix someone’s ignorance

  17. Laura Iushewitz | October 14, 2020 at 3:36 PM | Reply

    Really this is what they talk about to confirm a Supreme Court judge really this is stupid!!!

  18. We can all agree that the astros are trash and Ben sasse is no different

  19. i wish my name was clementine | October 14, 2020 at 4:17 PM | Reply

    Considering the current political climate, that’s kind of a strange flex.

  20. Sasse could be like a weenie Trump kid who wasn’t allowed to use the name, …
