So when will your friend be calling a Democratic senator so that she can testify during the hearings? That's a very serious charge, exactly the sort of thing that could really show people that Ashcroft is a hypocrite truly undeserving of the job, and thus quash his as-of-now-predetermined confirmation.
Oh, what, she's not willing to make that claim under oath? Gee, really? I wonder why.posted by aaron at 9:56 PM on January 15, 2001
Are you aware of what percentages of the vote Bill Clinton got in 1992 and 1996? If you aren't, you better look them up. If you are, then you already know you're being exceedingly hypocritical with such a statement.
The winner has the mandate to acheive whatever he can pull off, period. If Bush had won 60-40, it might have made Democrats more wary of fighting him on a lot of issues, but that's it. This is a Republican White House. You should expect lots of Republicans.
As to the idea that Ashcroft is this hyperconservative extremist, where is this coming from?
Dreama, they know it's incorrect. It's intentionally misleading rhetoric intended to demonize and get more people scared. The more people they get scared, the better chance they have of defeating him. (Though it's not going to work in this case.)posted by aaron at 2:46 PM on January 16, 2001
