The Senate rejected 27 (20%) of the 149 nominees to the Supreme Court made between the nation's founding and 2005. The reasons for the rejections vary, and include incompetence, inexperience, and impropriety. Most of the rejections, however, reflect in part, or even primarily, a difference between the President and the Senate over whether the nominated justice represents the right ideological choice.........
But I'll take the opportunity to post this link to a 2005 article by our most-likely next Supreme Court Justice: Liberals 'N' Lawsuits.
Do you have an argument that refutes his contention, that liberals in America resort to "lawfare" frequently, to avoid legislative tussles?
He has a long record; he's authored many opinions. You must be -to express such an opinion as that of your previous post- ignorant of them all.Is that typical of European politics?
You missed the point entirely, Frenzie: People who were required to do due diligence voted for him in 2006 and now oppose him for...? Hm. They don't say; they can't... Because it's just anti-Trump rhetoric -- likely for the purpose of raising money for the next election cycle.
Sen. Ted Cruz suggested Thursday that another seat on the U.S. Supreme Court will open up this summer, though he offered nothing to explain this premonition.On stage at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, Cruz also predicted that such a vacancy would prompt liberals to "go full Armageddon meltdown.""I think we'll have another Supreme Court vacancy this summer," said Cruz, a Texas Republican who fought against President Donald Trump for the GOP nomination last year. "If that happens, as much as the left is crazy now, they will go full Armageddon meltdown."Cruz isn't the first person to note that Democrats will probably fight harder if Trump has the chance to nominate a second justice to the Court. He has already nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the late Antonin Scalia's seat, but given that both are conservatives, Gorsuch would not change the Court's ideological balance if he were confirmed. A replacement of regular swing voter Anthony Kennedy or one of the liberals on the bench, meanwhile, would substantively change its direction.Cruz also isn't the first to suggest that another seat could open up before Trump leaves office. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, of the Court's liberal wing, is 83; Kennedy is 80. And President Barack Obama appointed two justices over his first term.Still, Cruz's remark prompted some snark on Twitter as users wondered whether he was hinting at a justice's retirement plans or, more darkly, implying that one of the sitting justices might die.
Any (gentleman's) bets on how long it takes Gorsuch to be confirmed?I'd wager less than a week. (I think he's a good choice.)
Why do you think he's[Gorsuch] a good choice?
What do you think of the mooted claim of a $54 billion increase in defense spending?

Another Martian speaks...
Gorsuch is a textualist whose understanding of the position to which he's nominated is non-political and non-legislative. He is conservative, but his job --as he sees it (rightly, I think)--doesn't involve policy: Judicial activism won't be a problem from him.
So, the leftists can relax...
The two "sacraments" of the leftists are abortion on demand and gay marriage...
I always thought the two "sacraments" of the rightists are anti-abortion ant anti-gay marriage. Well... that's just a point of view.(BTW, two things you can't stop by law regulation. Hence... irrelevancies.)
(BTW, two things you can't stop by law regulation. Hence... irrelevancies.)
I mean, their concern is about legalizing gay partnership - and calling it "marriage". Partnerships won't be stopped, but how they are handled is about names.
