Gorsuch Confirmation Hearings

Dale you watching any of the Gorsuch Confirmation Hearings? I was watching Ted Lying Cruz was throwing him all obvious setup questions that Gorsuch no doubt knew were coming. Ugly Ted was so nauseating that I thought he was going to jump under Gorsuch
table and start giving him a blow job. what a joke. Gorsuch seems like a alright guy though.

No votes yet

between an appointment by a POTUS of all the people, and a partisan POTUS. Obama's nominee, by all reports, was a moderate, middle-of-the-road legal mind. Gorsuch is a partisan, right-wing legal mind.
But, hey, all of the Republican strategies worked. They stalled and would not even hold a hearing for almost a full year after Scalia's death, They won the election by demonizing Hillary and other Democrats. So, they get their way. We all have to live with the results. The answer? Vote. Turn out and vote!
In the March 7, 2017 Primary Election in Los Angeles, Democrat Eric Garcetti was re-elected as Mayor on a non-partisan ballot with 81.37% of the vote. The high percentage accumulated by Garcetti ensures that there needs to be no run-off for the Office of Mayor in May. The only problem is, the percentage of registered voters who actually cast ballots was less than 12%!! Garcetti amassed just over 300,000 votes. This is discouraging because, the Anti-Trump rally in Los Angeles in January drew between 500,000 and 750,000 people, according to a variety of estimates.
What is it? Is marching in protest so much easier than voting? I know. They weren't voting on POTUS. But, local elections are where all change begins. IMHO -- Protests are empty gestures if people don't vote to express their opinions at the ballot box!.

Dale a couple things. As far as not letting Obama pick the justice on his way out the door didn't the democrats pull the same thing on George H back in 1992 that became known as the Biden rule?
" They won the election by demonizing Hillary and other Democrats" This is exactly right and they found their perfect tool for doing this with Thump. The Repub's rejected Thump at first but if it wasn't for him they would of lost. The Democrats "when they go low we go high"
philosophy isn't cutting it anymore. They need some candidates that are willing to get down in the mud.
Most of those Repub's congressmen and senatorsare ass sucking tools. Lindsay Graham
is one of the few that seems to be his own man and stand up for what is right.

Hope I didn't offend anyone!

you are incorrect about one very important fact. The Republicans LOVE to repeat lies as if lies are truths. It is one of their most brilliant pieces of propaganda. FACT -- There was NO SUPREME COURT VACANCY IN 1992!! Here is a full article about this situation: http://www.scotusblog.com/2016/02/supreme-court-vacancies-in-presidentia...
Secondly, the so-called "Biden Rule" DOES NOT call for the senate to NOT consider a possible nominee AT ALL! Here is a reference to the so-called "Biden Rule:" http://www.afj.org/myths-vs-facts-on-scotus-vacancy It is the second "Myth" referenced in this article. Here's a Joe Biden direct quote from 1992: “If the president consults and cooperates with the Senate [in naming a Supreme Court nominee], or moderates his selection absent consultation, then HIS NOMINEE MAY ENJOY MY [Biden's] SUPPORT AS DID JUSTICES KENNEDY AND SOUTER. [emphasis added]” Biden was the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1992.
I ask all who read here, does this sound anything like Mitch McConnell and most of the other Republican Senators refusing to even hold a hearing for almost a year? Remember, "The victor will never be asked if he told the truth."

Wow, thanks for the clarification. Those Repubs are some lying sob's.
Does Mitch McConnell store nuts in that sack under his chin? Maybe Thumps nuts!

Hope I didn't offend anyone!

win. When asked, voters almost always, and overwhelmingly so, say they want honest politicians. But, they vote for the liars consistently. If a politician is too honest, (s)he most often loses.
