Oh, the delicious irony! The joy of seeing the Far Left Democrats hung upon their own rope! Hoist on their own petard as it were! They laughed about it when it worked FOR them now they are crying “Foul!” and wailing like pre-schoolers who just dropped their fudgesickle into the dirt.

The Lefties have granted themselves the bogus right to be on both sides of every issue and stand where it best suits them at the moment. They invented the “nuclear option” now they’re against it!

Now what Trump has to do is hope that the McConnell/Ryan Congress will follow the dictates of We the People not the Establishment GOP and their string pullers like George Soros.

Of course they show go nuclear. Harry Reid started it! So what is good for the goose is good for the gander. And if the Democrats keep crying about the stolen judgeship they should be told to look up the Biden Rule. What a bunch of hypocrites.

Looks like the old saying, “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander” or pay back can be a beeech.

Go NUC on the DEMOCRATS, President Trump. It’s REIDS is who did this.

I support the Senate eliminating the filibuster for Trump’s SCOTUS pick if necessary. Where I quibble with this report is that no president can “tell” the Senate to do anything, he can only ask that they do everything possible to confirm Mr. Gorsuch and I hope they do so.

The 60 vote is what has caused gridlock in Washington for as long as I can remember. Good riddance! It’s great now, but we’ll pay for it in the future.

It is past time for ALL Republicans, and all Americans for that matter, to stand up for what is right. I’m sick of the wimps in DC letting the Constitution be walked on. This nominee does not appear to be political, just someone who believes in the Constitution and seems to understand the history behind it. Seems like many of the Dems want to be dictators, and actually are a bunch of thugs!
