‘Mindless Obedience To … Opposition’
‘Sen. Chuck Schumer … Will Lead A Filibuster Of Neil Gorsuch’s Nomination To The Supreme Court. What A Pity. And How Utterly Shameful’
GRAHAM:“If my Democratic colleagues choose to filibuster this guy, then they will be telling me that they don't accept the election results -- 306 electoral votes -- that they're trying to delegitimize President Trump…”(CNN, 3/23/17)
‘So Much For Senate Deliberation,’ Sen. ‘Chuck Schumer Came Out Swinging.’ He’s ‘Really Saying That No One Nominated By President Trump Can Be Confirmed’
KIM STRASSEL: “New York’s Sen. Chuck Schumer made history this week, in formally declaring his intention to break the U.S. Senate. … That’s the best way to process the minority leader’s announcement Thursday that he will vote to filibuster the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and urge his fellow Democrats to join him. Not even Mr. Schumer denies Judge Gorsuch possesses a singularly gifted legal mind and is eminently qualified for the court. His objection, instead, is that the nominee is ‘conservative.’ This is apparently now a disqualifying attribute for any Supreme Court justice.”(Kim Strassel, “Chuck Schumer Breaks The Senate,” The Wall Street Journal, 3/23/17)
STRASSEL: “Democrats were always going to oppose anyone Mr. Trump picked. The president could have named Mr. Schumer himself to the high court, and Mr. Schumer would have filibustered — on principle. The slow-rolling nature of the process has nonetheless masked the extraordinary new standard Mr. Schumer is setting, and the damage to the Constitution.” (Kim Strassel, “Chuck Schumer Breaks The Senate,” The Wall Street Journal, 3/23/17)
JAMES ROBERTSON, Retired U.S. District Judge & Former Bork Opposition Researcher: “Judge Neil Gorsuch is superbly well-prepared and well-qualified to serve as an associate justice of the Supreme Court. There is no real dispute about that. Nevertheless, it seems that anti-Gorsuch forces are girding their loins for battle. ‘Poor Gorsuch,’ they will say. ‘We’re going to do the best we can to defeat your nomination — but it’s not about you.’ Just what is it about, then? … [one] common reason to oppose Gorsuch: ‘The Democratic base demands it.’ That answer gives new meaning to the term ‘leading from behind.’ It assumes that this ‘base’ is a rabid, unthinking multitude of sans-culottes who must be obeyed. ... Democrats should want leadership from the front, not mindless obedience to those whose only position is opposition.” (James Robertson, “The Judicial Nomination War Started With Bork. Let’s End It With Gorsuch,” The Washington Post, 3/15/17)
Sen. Schumer Is Following The Lead Of ‘Rabid, Unthinking’ Left Wingers Who ‘Demand Nothing Less Than Total Warfare’
JANUARY FLASHBACK Before Judge Gorsuch Was Even Nominated
SEN. SCHUMER (D-NY): ‘It's Hard For Me To Imagine A Nominee… That We Could Support’
SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): “It's hard for me to imagine a nominee [for the Supreme Court] that Donald Trump would choose that would get Republican support that we could support. So you're right.” RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC: “So you will do your best to hold the seat open.” SCHUMER: “Absolutely.”(The Rachel Maddow Show, MSNBC, 1/3/2017)
