Ouch. Maybe Mr. King Frat Boy has been spending too much time with women... It's warped his judgement!!!
Tired of the winning yet?

The Supreme Court signaled Monday it is not anxious to revisit the abortion controversy in the year ahead, disappointing conservative activists who were cheered by the appointment of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh.

After weeks of debate behind closed doors, a divided court turned down appeals backed by 13 conservative states that sought to defund Planned Parenthood.

Kavanaugh and Roberts join liberals to reject Planned Parenthood case

Nothing to do with abortion. It was a free market decision.

Go ask each and every justice then. I will await their responses :)

Are you aware that it takes watching the new guy/gal 2-3 years before we even begin to get a sense of what kind of justice they are?

You act like you are not.

It could be they don't want to throw yet more madness into the mix, and are waiting until a more stable situation to try.

haha. So even the SCOTUS is waiting until Trump leaves office

I guess that means that all your hysterics over his nomination were overblown then. Perhaps there is a lesson in there for you.

Something conservatives fail to grasp. Just because I agree with the guy once, or multiple times. Does not mean I have to like him.

You never know what a justice will be like till they get on the bench and show you, up till then all we can do is guess, and some of the conventional wisdom guesses have been spectacularly wrong.

Knowing this sort of thing is what education is for.

Hmm,

I agreed with his appointment, and I also support a woman's right to choose...so yeah I'm NOT "tired of the winning yet." :coffeepap:

And if he’d come down differently, people would have bitched about that.

Or how about conservatives just think things will always work out their way and then either throw hissy fits when it doesn't or act like they don't care after their pick becomes too liberal, which is what everyone on this thread is doing right now.

No one is making that argument other than you.

If judges were doing it right, we’d never know what their personal political lean is.

My point is the real question of your understanding.....as for your opinion of others that is nearly useless......we wont go there.

I don't know about posters here, but there can be little doubt that many Dems hysterically condemned Kavanaugh w/o proof, whether they really believed him guilty or were just trolling for midterm votes.

I remember someone broaching the view that Kavanaugh was not likely to overturn RvW casually, and this may prove to support that opinion.

It would appear that he simply sided with the majority who saw no legal grounds for the appeal. It takes a minimum of 4 SCOTUS justices to agree to accept a given case - only three did so.
