Trump's Pick For Supreme Court

President Trump finally made his pick to fill the open Supreme Court seat. Reason magazine looks at the record Neil Gorsuch and, best I can tell, doesn't see much of a problem with him. The Sacramento Bee doesn't seem to have a problem with Gorsuch but does have a problem with Republicans having blocked Obama's appointee Merrick Garland. It should be no surprise the Daily Kos takes similar position suggesting Democrats should filibuster the Gorsuch nomination. Not because of anything in  Gorsuch's record, but because of the Merrick Garland affair. The usual partisan sniping with tit for tat.

I have some concerns after reading Reason magazine's evaluation of Gorsuch but he seems a fine enough choice for me. As the writer at Reason points out, "One thing is certain: The battle over the future of the Supreme Court has just begun."

Addendum: Another Sacramento Bee article has politicos actually giving reasons they do or don't approve of Gorsuch.

The Democrats are guilty of attempting to block Republican Presidents from appointing Justices in the past including Obama. They're upset because the Republicans managed to pull it off.

Scalia died when PBO had almost a year left in office. It wasn't like the night before Trump's inauguration.

Republicans failed to fulfil their Constitutional responsibility and grant PBO's candidate. Instead the played dirty.

2018 - vote these assholes out.

I'm all in for getting rid of as many Democrats as possible in 2018.

It seems like a lot of people would like to see the United States fail.

I really don't think they'll find it all that much fun living in a country fun like Russia.

As long as he is a Constitutionist & not a political whore, I'm happy.

Gorsuch is known as the 'foreclosure king' from his days as a mortgage broker flim-flam man, ousting elderly & low inçome families from their homes. 1480 KGOE provides coverage of current issues, on Thom Hartmann, Devil's Advocate & others.
