… Nor do they care about what is best for the people. They are the party of division and hate. They are willing to destroy the United States for a short-term gain. They are desperate because we the people have turned our collective back on them and their foolish claims and their illegal actions. They are angry at the people because they lost the 2016 election so badly as well as 2010 and 2014. They are doing destructive things instead of doing what is best for the future and the people. They are digging their grave ever deeper.
They are unable to block the new President’s nominee for the Supreme Court because they don’t have the votes. Instead they are cynically trying to destroy a good man. If they succeed in getting the Judge to reply to their demands he will be destroyed by a Democrat-complicit media. From all accounts he is too good a man to have treatment like that.
“Democrats hope to corner Gorsuch in confirmation battle”
Senate Democrats hope to force Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch into revealing his opinions on abortion rights and the legality of President Trump’s travel ban during confirmation hearings that begin Monday.
Supreme Court nominees are usually circumspect when asked to share their views on issues that could one day make their way to the court, a standard that Gorsuch’s defenders say was set by liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg during her confirmation hearing in 1993.
But Democrats argue that Gorsuch’s nomination is different given Trump’s repeated attacks on judges.
“I think he has an obligation to show unequivocally and emphatically his support for an independent judiciary and his own independence from Donald Trump,” Sen. Dick Blumenthal, D-Conn., told Yahoo News.
Democrats, including Blumenthal and Schumer, have threatened to filibuster Gorsuch’s nomination if they decide he is outside of the “mainstream,” but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he would have no problem changing the chamber’s rules to let Gorsuch pass through on just 50 votes.”
