Here are some of the Democrats who supported Neil Gorsuch in 2006
The Democrats are vowing to filibuster Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, claiming he is a radical and out of the mainstream. Nancy Pelosi went so far as to say, and I paraphrase, if you like air, water, food, or medicine you should oppose the President’s nominee. She also called this a “hostile appointment.”
Considering that Neil Gorsuch was appointed to the appeals court unanimously it seems to me these accusations are not well founded in the truth. So here is a partial look at some of the Democrats who voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch in 2006:
Patty Murray, Ron Wyden
Maria Cantwell, and
That is quite a list, especially the first five, isn’t it? If Neil Gorsuch is so radical why did they support him in the first place and if he was so radical why did they pass him on a voice vote?
One Democratic Senator who voted in favor of Neil Gorsuch is on the record this week as saying the nominee “harkens back to the days when politicians restricted a people’s rights on a whim.” The only question I have is if this is true why did he support Neil Gorsuch in 2006? I guess he did not care about people’s rights back then…
Nancy Pelosi is not on the original list so I suppose she has more street cred than the rest of them but as for the others? They are nothing but a bunch of frauds.
