On Day 3, Judge Gorsuch ‘The Very Image Of A Thoughtful Jurist’
After A ‘Steady Performance Through Two Grueling Days Of Testimony,’ ‘The Hearings Confirm That Gorsuch Is Imminently Qualified.’ He ‘Should Be Confirmed’
Hearings Prove Judge Gorsuch ‘An Even-Tempered, Deeply Knowledgeable Nominee Who Should Be Confirmed By The Senate’
“Gorsuch is coming across in the hearings as the very image of a thoughtful jurist. He’s displayed an impressive depth of knowledge, and admirable patience. And he’s carefully followed past practice of judicial nominees in refusing to say how he’d rule on specific issues. Democratic committee members have not been able to rattle him or walk him onto land mine. The hearings confirm that Gorsuch is [eminently] qualified, and there is nothing radical in his judicial history.”(Editorial, “Gorsuch Turns Back Democratic Attacks,” The Detroit News, 3/21/2017)
CHICAGO TRIBUNE:“In this week's Senate confirmation hearings, Gorsuch has shown himself to be committed to the principle that judges should rule on the law as written, and apply it equally to all. … Democrats' questioning Tuesday and Wednesday was aggressive. But their attempts to trip up Gorsuch, revealing deficiencies that might disqualify him, elicited the opposite: unassailable assurances by Gorsuch that he would decide each case on the merits, based on the law as written, applied to the world as it is today. Democrats struggled to find offense with that judicial philosophy.” (Editorial, “Neil Gorsuch Earns His Supreme Court Seat,” Chicago Tribune, 3/22/17)
MSNBC’S WILLIE GEIST: “There may be some philosophical differences that a lot of Democrats had in there but in terms of character, in terms of professionalism, integrity, there wasn’t, I would argue, anything, or hardly anything, there to criticize Gorsuch on.”(MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” 3/22/2017)
Judge Gorsuch ‘Remained Calm Under Sharp Questioning From Democrats’
“Neil Gorsuch finished his final day of testimony Wednesdaybefore the Senate Judiciary Committee,facing tough questions from Democrats on the panel without ever hinting how he might rule on hot-button issues. … Gorsuch, however, came out of the gauntlet with barely a scratch. Democrats poked and prodded, attempting to get a better understanding of his personal views and how they would affect his potential court rulings. But the 49-year-old federal judge was unwavering, yielding little fodder that could derail his nomination.” (“While Partisans Fight, Gorsuch Glides Through Hearings Day 3,” CNN, 3/22/2017)
