👉  Doesn't think a sitting president can be indicted

👉 Has challenged the Affordable Care Act on numerous occasions

👉  Vehemently dissented when a 17-year-old immigrant teen requested an abortion

Many liberals want to see Democrats go scorched earth to block Trump's nomination. If Republicans could pull this with Merrick Garland, Democrats shouldn't hold back in their attacks on Kavanaugh. 

#EnoughObstruction

Conservatives think Democrats should take Kavanaugh seriously as the nominee rather than throw a temper tantrum.

Kavanaugh is beyond qualified to serve as a Supreme Court justice.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Kisa Murkowski (R-AK) are both pro-choice Republicans, but even they feel Kavanaugh deserves a fair hearing. 

“Judge Kavanaugh has impressive credentials and extensive experience, having served more than a decade on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals,” Collins said in a statement. “I will conduct a careful, thorough vetting of the President’s nominee to the Supreme Court, as I have done with the five previous Supreme Court Justices whom I have considered. I look forward to Judge Kavanaugh’s public hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and to questioning him in a meeting in my office.”
“I intend to carefully consider that rating, the information obtained through personal meetings, my own review of Judge Kavanaugh’s qualifications and record, and the views of Alaskans in determining whether or not to support him,” Murkowski said.
