Everyone in the Senate voted “yes.” Then Senator Obama voted “yes.” Hillary Clinton voted, “yes.” Ted Kennedy, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Joe Biden, Diane Feinstein, and John Kerry… yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes. They all voted to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
But now, all of a sudden, within seconds of Gorsuch being nominated to the Supreme Court, Gorsuch has been labeled an “Extremist,” and “Dangerous.” Many of the same people who voted “Yes,” in 2006, now vow to fight his appointment tooth and nail.
Question: If he is so dangerous and extreme that protesters had professionally printed signs at the ready in advance of his announcement, then why did every Democratic Senator vote “yes” for him before?
Unless Gorsuch has made a dramatic change in the past 10 years, then the aforementioned Senators are either hypocrites or incompetent. But to be fair, they may be both.
Oh, and what is it that supposedly makes Gorsuch so radical? Brace yourself… he thinks that the law means what it says; and that judges are not above the law, they also have to follow it, like it or not.
I know, what a maniac right? Meet me down at the riot, I feel like tipping over some trash cans… and I heard Chuck Schumer might give a speech and cry.
I just love it when he cries…
