And speaking of Denver Judge Neil Gorsuch of the U.S. Appeals Court for the 10th District, he’s a leading candidate for the job, CBS News reports.
The George W. Bush appointee was considered non-controversial when he was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in 2006 and passed on a voice vote.
But we expect that if Trump nominates him, Democrats will suddenly find numerous excuses or just plain make up reasons to oppose a Gorsuch confirmation. Because Trump.
Gorsuch is certainly qualified for the post, says the liberal American Bar Association, who, when not nominated by Trump, was rated “unanimously well qualified.”
But don’t let that turn you off PeakNation™, because he’s also cited as the most natural successor to Justice Antonin Scalia in terms of his judicial style and his substantive approach.
We just wanted to point out that the Democrats had no problem with Gorsuch the first time they confirmed him, before we start calling the Democrats a bunch of hypocrites for changing their minds for no other reason than they are spoiling for a fight.
