    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.

    Here's hoping that RBG has a few more years left in her.
    I hope your right that the dems dont choose this battle.

    RGB is an amazing woman. I profoundly disagree with her but i respect her enourmously and it will be a sad day that the court loses her voice. I will mourn with the left when we lose her. She is the yin to the yang of scalia.

    Keeping a balanced court is essential to us all.

    Extra points for using the word furor(e) on this board, for the first time that I have seen (not that I've read every post).

    Note: the spellings of "furor" and "furore" are equally correct, no matter what my spell check software says - it's sort of like color vs colour.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    The man is only part of the story. The way the GOP handled the Obama pick is the other part of the story.

    I love the USSC protest signs showing up at court houses: " OPPOSE _________" with "Gorsuch" filled in in crayon. If he had nominated Pelosi they would have filled in her name just because they would oppose ANYBODY that Trump nominates. I am guessing that Soros paid for the "empty signs" for the "empty minds" out there protesting.

    Did they use different color crayons for each letter in his name. I hear children often like to write things in a way that resembles rainbows.

    On a side note i might have to add crayola to my stock portfolio. I got a feeling their sales will be going up over the next 4-8 years.

    A lot of truth to this statement. Once a formerly unused tactic is used by one side, all excuses for not using it again, and again, and again, evaporate.
    Such is the legacy of Reid and Obama. They started this entire 'nuclear option', much to the detriment of the entire nation.

    But you have to understand the Democrats and where they are at this time. There is no thing more dangerous than a wounded cornered animal, which pretty much sums up their position.

    Stunning Graph Shows the Wrecking Ball Obama Has Taken to the Democrat Party
    Obama’s legacy is a devastated Democratic Party
    By Deroy Murdock, December 25, 2016
    Obama’s legacy is a devastated Democratic Party | New York Post
    As President Obama concludes his reign of error, his party is smaller, weaker and ricketier than it has been since at least the 1940s. Behold the tremendous power that Democrats have frittered away — from January 2009 through the aftermath of Election Day — thanks to Obama and his ideas:
    • Democrats surrendered the White House to political neophyte Donald J. Trump.
    • US Senate seats slipped from 55 to 46, down 16 percent.
    • US House seats fell from 256 to 194, down 24 percent.
    • Democrats ran the Senate and House in 2009. Next year, they will control neither.
    • Governorships slid from 28 to 16, down 43 percent.
    • State legislatures (both chambers) plunged from 27 to 14, down 48 percent
    • Trifectas (states with Democrat governors and both legislative chambers) cratered from 17 to 6, down 65 percent.
    For a fair numbers of years, on the order of 6, I've been saying that the Democrats will follow Obama over the cliff like lemmings. Based on the above, seems an apt description.

    Trump's pick will be men's worst nightmare. He is anti-women's rights. Family Court is gonna triple in size with child support cases.

    I dont know if i dump this at obamas feet but he is part of democrat leadership and i do put their losses on leadership. Fate dealt them supermajority numbers in congress and they used it as a power grab. They got so carried away they over reached and spooked many of us. Kenedy dieing and them forcing oboma care may of really cemented peoples fears and they doubled down on their hunger.

    They have been hemoraging votes since obamas first midterm and they seem tone deaf to it. People are steadily voting them out and unless they tone it down or the republicans spook voters by over reaching the way the dems did. The dems may be the miniority party for more than trumps first 2 years. How the party is so blind to this when the signs were so obvious amazes me.

    Did they think the tea party numbers were an anominally. Did they think losing so many seats wasna fluke? They seem to still be doubling down on this failed strategy. They made owlosi the party leader again? Its like an act of suicide
