One of the worst presidents of the modern era has voiced his displeasure with the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation.
Addressing a class at Emory University Wednesday, former President Jimmy Carter called Kavanaugh “unfit” to serve on the Supreme Court.
Everyone on the left side of the aisle, including Carter, is trying to use Kavanaugh’s spirited defense of himself as the reason he should not be on the Supreme Court.
Carter specifically cited this as his reason for being against Kavanaugh.
“I saw him lose his cool,” Carter stated.
The problem with this perception of Kavanaugh is that nobody is considering the circumstances.
Kavanaugh was literally fighting for his professional life, his reputation, and his family.
Forget the Supreme Court appointment, because the ramifications of those allegations would have run far deeper.
If the allegations had proven to be true, Kavanaugh would not only have lost the nomination, but he would likely have been impeached from his current appointment.
He would further have been deemed untouchable by any law firm where he would seek employment.
Kavanaugh had every right to be passionate, period.
Record Speaks for Itself
Brett Kavanaugh has a dozen years on the DC Circuit Court that should speak more to his temperament than a single hearing over sexual misconduct allegations.
At no time during his tenure on the bench has there EVER been a question as to his temperament.
Bill Clinton lost his cool in public on numerous occasions when he was president … did Carter ever speak negatively about him?
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has voiced an angry opinion both with her pen as well as in person, but Carter has never questioned her abilities to perform her duties while on the bench of the Supreme Court.
Not that Carter’s opinion holds water with most Americans, but he would be better served by sitting quietly on the sidelines rather than pushing this bogus narrative about Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh has proved over the last decade-plus that he is worthy of this appointment. We have little doubt his legacy will be anything but brilliant when his SCOTUS career ends decades from now.
