Talk about playing both sides.
Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is so terrified to take a stand that after admitting he was not sure if he believed Ford’s allegations, he backed it up by saying he doesn’t know if he believed Kavanaugh either.
Both Ends Against the Middle
Senator Flake is on his last term and most conservatives could not be happier.
Over the last two years, the Arizona Republican has proven to be completely gutless and far more left than right.
Flake does not like President Donald Trump, this we all know.
His dislike has caused him to sway from the right side of the aisle toward the middle — and beyond.
With Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination process, though, he appeared to be doing the right thing, at least at first.
Then, as soon as some liberal pressure was applied, he bowed like a palm tree in a Florida hurricane.
After committing to Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Flake was cornered by some liberal protestors.
Flake then got together with one of his Democrat buddies and called for a supplemental investigation into Kavanaugh, delaying the confirmation vote still further.
Now that Kavanaugh has been confirmed to the Supreme Court at last, one would think Flake would stand by his decision — but no.
During a recent appearance on ABC’s The View, Flake was once again too afraid to take a stand.
He started off strong, stating, “If the mere allegation with no corroboration is sufficient to disqualify someone, we’ve entered a new phase that we probably don’t want to enter.”
But when pressed on whether or not he believed Ford, Flake once again balked, then threw Kavanaugh under the bus again to protect himself, stating, “I don’t know if I believed him either.”
In the process of being politically correct, Flake made himself look like an idiot.
If he didn’t believe Kavanaugh, he should have voted no. If he believed Ford, he should have voted no.
Instead, he voted yes, helping to confirm someone we all believe was innocent and that will become a great justice for America.
Standing by his decision was too much to ask for, though.
Good riddance Mr. Flake … we don’t need cowards representing conservatives in our government.
