SUPREME COURT NOMINEE GORSUCH ON TAP FOR CONFIRMATION NEXT WEEK
Wednesday, March 29th, 2017.……… and the Democrats are still Losers.
Little Chucky Schumer says Neil Gorsuch didn’t meet his liberal progressive standards for a Supreme Court nominee, so he’s urging all of his Democrat[ic] colleagues to vote against President Trump’s selection. The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to vote next Monday, with the full Senate vote expected later in the same week.
Yet, these Senate Democrats seem to have “selectively-short” memories.
In 2006, Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals without a single dissenting vote. Among those who approved Mr. Gorsuch, (in a voice vote, with not one objection), includes Little Chucky himself, then Senators Barack Obama & Joe Biden, and current Senators Dianne Feinstein, (ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary), Minority Whip Dicky Durbin, Senior Senator Patrick Leahy, Debbie Stabenow, Robert Menendez, and Ron Wyden among others. The full list of current Senate Democrats who voted FOR Gorsuch in 2006 is at this link:
Oh, and did I mention, then Senator Hillary Clinton was also present at this voice-vote without an objection?
All in all, the butt-hurt Democrats are still pissed off because 1), their queen lost, 2), Obama’s selection of Merrick Garland was not considered, (referred by Democrats as “a stolen seat”, despite the hypocrites ignoring the “Biden Rule“), and 3), thanks to now departed Dirty Harry Reid, the explosive device known as the nuclear option leaves the Democrats virtually powerless going into the vote next week.
Never has the phrase “elections have consequences” carried so much weight. Next week, those consequences will come to fruition no matter which path the Democrats choose----to filibuster or not.
One of the reasons Donald J. Trump is in the White House was because Republican voters saw the seriousness of this SC selection, (and future selections), to prevent the Court from to turning into Liberal Activist Arm for the Progressives.
Democrats entered this battle unarmed and unprepared because the pollsters and the Media told them there was nothing to worry about---Mrs. Clinton had this election “in the bag”. I can’t help but wonder how unhinged the left will become by the end of next week, when “the losers” lose…………..again.
