    12 Republicans voted Aye while 6 didn't vote – including Cruz, Rubio & Sanders

    No wonder Americans think Congress and Washington are broken. (At least my GOP Senator voted No) Read the story @ Senate Confirms Obama Nominee Who Called Reagan a Bigot

    :lol:

    So, according to your logic, Americans think Congress is "broken" because they did their jobs and confirmed a judge even though *gasp* she had the gall to criticize Saint Reagan thirty years ago?

    No. Congress is broken because they rubber-stamp Obama's bigots like this one.

    The downward slide for respect for Reagan and his diminishing popularity will continue as the younger generations study his place in history objectively and without the burden of propaganda and brand loyalty.

    Harvard Law graduate, winner of multiple awards, and 25 years of experience on the bench. Why exactly shouldn't she have been confirmed, aside from being mean to Saint Reagan?

    Of course Cruz and Rubio didn't vote. They have the shittest attendance record in the Senate. Why should this vote be any different?

    Same with Obama, but it did not keep the far left drones from voting for him..

    It is cute to watch the far left believe they get a choice in their nominations..

    Obama's Senate attendance record was a joke as well.
