When I listened to the Senate Gorsuch hearings for his nomination to the Supreme Court, the Democrats had very little to condemn this man for. His answers to their concerns sounded both logical and sincere and he remained unflustered. Yet, the Dems kept coming back to one ruling that they think paints him as a heartless S.O.B. who would leave a truck driver to die in 14 below weather. In this supposed "Frozen Trucker" case, Gorsuch ruled against the majority and sided with the company who fired the trucker for leaving his rig behind on the side of the road to find gasoline. Gorsuch ruled against the trucker because of Federal law and simply told the Democrats that if they didn't like his ruling, then change the law.
So, out of 2700+ rulings, the Democrats believe that just this one ruling should disqualify him. The Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer also claims that Gorsuch is a "conservative" ideologue and unfit to be on the Supreme Court. A fact that I find interesting since the website FiveThirtyEight researched his rulings on the 10th Circuit and actually found him to be more liberal than many of the other justices on that court.
But, still, the Democrats don't want him on the Supreme Court. In another effort to block him, they are now claiming that as long as Trump is under investigation by the FBI, he has no right to appoint anyone to the "court". Where were these people when Hillary was running for President and under an FBI investigation for her private email server?
Just how long are Democrats going to carry on this circus of blocking Trump at every turn? Can we please get on with the business of running the government?
