Tail Wagging The Donkey
If Judge Gorsuch Can't Achieve 60 Votes In The Senate, Could Any Judge Appointed By A Republican President’?
SEN. MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY): “If Judge Gorsuch can't achieve 60 votes in the Senate, could any judge appointed by a Republican president be approved with 60 or more votes in the Senate?”(Sen. McConnell, Press Conference, 3/21/17)
Sen. Schumer Decides To Follow The Lead Of Far Left Purity-For-Profit Groups Who Declared Even Speaking With Judge Gorsuch ‘Unacceptable’ ‘Collaboration’
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. But the real base that Democrats need to find and cultivate is voters who can distinguish outrageous actions from responsible ones. Democrats should want leadership from the front, not mindless obedience to those whose only position is opposition. Responsible leaders should be explaining the function of the third branch in the U.S. constitutional system, the importance of judicial independence and the danger of a politicized judiciary. A base that understands those things will support the prompt and uncomplicated confirmation of Gorsuch.” (James Robertson, “The Judicial Nomination War Started With Bork. Let’s End It With Gorsuch,” The Washington Post, 3/15/17)
‘Rabid, Unthinking’ Left Wingers‘Demand Nothing Less Than Total Warfare’
“Liberal advocacy groups are issuing a sharp rebuke to Senate Democrats, who they say have failed to sufficiently fight President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick. In aletter to be delivered Monday and obtained by POLITICO, 11 progressive groups warn that the 48-member minority ‘must get out in front of this nomination process and refuse to be bullied by President Trump’… Since Neil Gorsuch was nominated on Jan. 31, ‘Democrats have failed to demonstrate a strong, unified resistance to this nominee’ …wrote the groups,led by the abortion-rights advocates at NARAL Pro-Choice America.”(“Liberals To Senate Democrats: Step Up The Gorsuch Fight,” Politico, 3/05/2017)
