    From a vindictive perspective, I would be for blocking an R nominee after the whole Garland episode, but there's no way that the Dems are going to be able to block Gorsuch for however many years without a majority, especially given his credentials and the fact he was confirmed by voice vote to the circuit.

    There are better hills to die on for the Dems, methinks.
    The SC is Obi Wan Kenobi for democrats--their last hope. They will do everything they can to destroy this mans character. Why? Because that is what they do. If they cant call someone a racist, sexist, homophobe, fascist, then they have nothing to say at all. You see it here on DP all the time and you will see it all unfold within 24-48 hours

    Shumer and the Democrats appear to be slow walking the cabinet. Why is a SCOTUS appointment any different?

    Oh the great irony! Reid's nuclear option used by Republicans to appoint a Constitutional Textualist. Betcha he and the Dem's didn't see that one coming.

    If he was a replacement for Ginsburg, I'd agree with you, but he's a replacement for Scalia, so I don't think that will be the case.

    Few democratic voters (i.e. the majority of US voters that the dems in congress represent) would be very happy with Gorsuch, and the Dems in congress might try to honor that. I could be wrong. We'll just have to see.

    Yeah, seems to be the case, right there. Dingy Harry certainly was an egotistical POS excuse for a human being.
    All his lying on the Senate floor after hours.


    Harry Reid Gives Shameful Response to His Attack on Mitt Romney’s Taxes


    During the 2012 presidential campaign, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made an outrageous allegation that GOP nominee Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes for 10 years.

    Reid, who recently announced that he will not seek re-election in 2016, first made the claim in an interview with the Huffington Post on July 31, 2012. “He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years,” he said. “Now do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain, but obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look?”

    This was not a slip of the tongue, it was a calculated lie that Reid repeated several times in an attempt to pressure Romney into releasing tax returns for years prior to 2010.

    A few days later, on Aug. 2, Reid doubled down in a speech on the Senate floor. “If a person coming before this body wanted to be a Cabinet officer, he couldn’t be if he had the same refusal Mitt Romney does about tax returns,” he said. “So the word is out that he has not paid any taxes for 10 years. Let him prove he has paid taxes, because he has not.”

    He tripled down on the accusation later that day in a statement saying that he was told by an “extremely credible source” that Romney hadn’t paid taxes for 10 years.

    The bogus claim created a media firestorm at the time, and earned Reid a “pants on fire“ rating from PolitiFact and “four Pinocchios“ from Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler, who wrote that Reid “has no basis to make his incendiary claim” and should “hold himself to a high standard of accuracy when making claims about political opponents.”
    Yeah, a miserable, POS excuse for a human being. Nevada, be not proud for that one.

    I will have yet another profound problem with the left if they push it to the point thst they force the right to use the nuclear option. They better have a damn good reason for blocking his nomination because creating this orecedent as a means to pass presidental nominees is bad for both sides. The filibuster is an important tool to defend the integrity of our republic and if it should never be evoked a partisan weapon

    Whatever the case, obstructing Gorsuch would be playing right into Bannon's hands. Would just be used as a reason to demonize the dems.
