After Judge Neil Gorsuch was nominated by President Donald Trump on Tuesday to serve on the Supreme Court, only one network explicitly reported that in 2006, Sen. Chuck Schumer and then-Sens. Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton had all supported his nomination to an appeals court.
“(Gorsuch’s) temperament helped him win unanimous approval from the Senate in 2006 when he was up for appeals court judge,” CBS correspondent Nancy Cordes reported the following morning.
“Among those who did not oppose his nomination — then-Senators Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and the current Democratic leader Chuck Schumer,” she added.
She was right. Listen to CBS’ honest reporting below:
However, according to NewsBusters, the correspondents at neither ABC nor NBC cared to mention this to their respective viewers, perhaps because they feared that this knowledge could work against their allies in the Democrat Party.
According to USA Today, Schumer and other Democrats have been arguing that Gorsuch was out of the legal mainstream.
“Judge Gorsuch has repeatedly sided with corporations over working people, demonstrated a hostility toward women’s rights, and most troubling, hewed to an ideological approach to jurisprudence that makes me skeptical that he can be a strong, independent justice on the court,” Schumer said.
And yet Democrat stalwarts voted to confirm him in 2006?
The truth is that Gorsuch was a pragmatic choice — one whose prior nomination was confirmed by some of the Democrat Party’s most notable figures and whose current nomination should be confirmed as well.
“Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, is one of the most respected conservative legal intellectuals on the federal bench,” the outlet reported. “Like Justice Antonin Scalia, he has the ability and the ambition to lead America’s constitutional debate by following a clear vision of textualism and originalism, based on the premise that judges should separate their political from their constitutional conclusions.”
There’s nothing to dislike about the guy, unless of course you happen to be a radically partisan hack like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the San Francisco Democrat who, according to Breitbart, warned that Gorsuch is a threat to those Americans “breath air, drink water, eat food take medicine,” etc.
By the same token, one could easily argue that listening to the demented diatribes of partisan Democrats such as Pelosi is a threat to the brain cells.
