Anything Can Happen.

They said that no Afro-American could become President of the U.S.A.
In 2008 Barack Obama became President of the U.S.A.
Anything can happen.

They said that man would walk on the moon. I thought that was impossible
Not only did a man walk on the moon, we could watch the entire show live on TV. And I did.
Anything can happen

They said a total idiot could not be elected President. I thought that was impossible. A total idiot was
elected President of the U.S.A in 2016. There was outside interference, and a woman really won, but
that really did happen
Anything can happen.

I attended a class in the late 70s, the professor said that someday computer chips would be so cheap
that one day people would carry around computers in their pockets. And everyone could afford one..Then, computer chips were extremely expensive, and that idea in my opinion, was totally ridiculous.
Anything can happen

They said that the Chicago Cubs would never win the World Series...
The Chicago Cubs did indeed win the World Series..11/2/16
Anything can happen

They said that a plane could not land on the Hudson River in New York and everyone could get out alive 1/15/09
Anything can happen

They said that 2 Republican senators would not vote against Kavanaugh as Supreme Court
Justice. They vote in lockstep to the wishes of the party and their leader. That's impossible
Anything can happen, Anything can happen, Anything can happen !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. It can happen. The question is WILL it happen?

6. Yes, I think it will happen because there are 2 who are willing to do this.

Who? I don't know. Sacrifice a career for the good of the U.S.A. Yes, I think that 2 will do this. Two out of 51. I think that is going to happen for the U.S.A.

2. Yeah, sorry, that will happen after I'm dead (likely, due to age)

 

Good luck to the rest of you, though.

3. I'm with you

Some people here think Kavanaugh can lose two Republicans and still be confirmed. Not so. He can only lose one. If they had the votes, they'd be crowing.

He may still make it. In fact, that's the most likely outcome, but it's not certain.

5. Given the power of the SC, I'm not sure why a party would tank its own nominee.

 

It would be nearly impossible to get me to not vote for the nominee of a Democratic President, especially a nominee as young and as partisan as Kavanaugh.

Why would we expect Republicans to?

7. For only one reason. For the future of the United States of America.

If the nominee of the Democratic President was totally evil, I would vote against him/her. Yes, it is asking a whole lot, to sacrifice a career for an idea. But Kavanaugh's testimony yesterday would be enough for me, even if he were a Democrat. He sexually assaulted someone, and lied about it. That is enough for me.
