Sam you're privileged enough to have both parties act as viable conduits for your opinions. But this is false equivalency, and a trademark Republican tactic. It's absolutely absurd that 'centrists' get to play 'both sides are the same.'Not gonna lie, these sound like exactly the kinda of things Republicans said about Blasey-Ford after she accused Kavanaugh.
‘Surely this would’ve come up earlier, convenient timing’, ‘lack of detail, smells like BS’, etc.
Personally I think one should be consistent between the two cases. Either rape allegations made by credible women willing to stand before a camera and accuse their attacker are or are not subject to standard due process when it comes to politics. The two cases are very similar in that both happened a long time ago and any hope of substantive proof that might be brought forth to substantiate the accusation In a court of law has long since passed. Instead both parties seem to believe the people on their side should be given due process as if it were a criminal court of law and the other side should be condemned and thrown in prison on the spot.
How about instead of just deciding its basically the same case and move on, you listen to the women? Hear out the cases, and evaluate individually based on the merits? I think many democrats would be fine with an investigation into the Reade allegations. The republican response was to railroad through an investigation in a couple days, without interviewing witnesses. Kavanaugh immediately started crumbling and making absurd lies under oath. To my knowledge, Biden has not done anything similar.
There are differences in the cases, and you trying to stand above the fray just shows you don't actually care about the cases themselves.
