There is no logical reason to be against the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch. That hasn’t prevented Democrats from getting out their frustration on the incredibly qualified judge. This morning, we discovered that the Democrats are going to obstruct Gorsuch’s confirmation.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer introduced his envisioned plans to vote “no” on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court and assured that Republicans would have to defeat a Democratic filibuster in order to announce him.
“I have decided in this after a thorough deliberation. I have come to the conclusion that I simply cannot accept Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” the New York Democrat said Thursday.
Schumer continued to say that Gorsuch will have to surpass a “cloture vote” and “earn his confirmation.”
This is absolutely nothing more than political theatre. Democrats really should be ashamed.
Keep in mind how Democrats referred to Republicans as “obstructionists” for eight years when Barack Obama was U.S president? They have blocked much more in a couple of months than Republicans did in many years. Donald Trump had a more difficult period obtaining his cabinet confirmed than any president since George Washington. These days, he can’t even get a judge through without a filibuster.
At some level, Democrats are going to have to agree that Donald Trump is the president. There is actually absolutely nothing questionable about Gorsuch. Nothing at all. The Democrats are lost as a party. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t even know who is the head of the party. Republicans will conquer this,but they will have to use the “nuclear option” which McConnell has earlier indicated that is on the table.
