Thread: Gorsuch confirmed!

  1. #1

    Default Gorsuch confirmed!

    After bruising and historic battle, US Senate confirms Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court on Friday, filling the critical ninth seat that has been vacant for over a year. The 54-45 vote came after Senate Republicans changed the rules to no longer require a super majority.

    While I like the judge personally, this is a sad day for American politics.

    When's the last time you can remember a good day with our Gvnmnt? Other than Hildebeast losing last Nov. I'd still can't remember a good day for at least a decade....

    Agreed. The dems started the "nuclear" business and that fundamentally changes the character of the Senate. While Gorsuch may be a worthy nominee this is going to lead to an increasingly polarized court sharply divided along party lines... as if it weren't already bad enough... as successive R and D dominated Senates chose more and more polarized justices. So yes... today is good when you look at the man but tragic when you consider the uncertain future.
    In a crazy world, it's the crazy man who can get by - and it's about to get cray-cray up in here.

    Basically setting the precedent the Dems can force who they want in too. Win the battle, lose the war.

    I'd agree on not being happy with the government for at least a decade, though I'd go back much further than that. Today's just more of the same. The slight glimmer of hope is another strict-reading conservative on the court might slightly slow the expansion of over-extended powers.

    Exactly. All it takes is justices holding on and complacent conservatives going into the next election to completely destroy our changes forever. People are happy because their candidate is wielding the power right now, but they basically signed a permission slip for the other side to do the same. Of course, "I told you so" will fall on deaf ears when they're wailing about the Democrats forcing a liberal judge through. And now that they know it's an option, you can bet they'll push through the craziest commie bat**** candidates they can.

    The N. O. Was already created and used by the Democrats. We didn't open that door. The Dems did.
