I am listening to Hon. Gorsuch, he is so well spoken, so clear and easy to understand. He must be approved, how could anyone be better?

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse needs to watch a SchoolHouse Rock video about the separation of powers . Poor Judge Gorsuch after many attempts to get Whitehouse to make even a bit of sense finally had to say “Senator that is your job. A legislator legislates.”

He’s even more idiotic than the average Democrat Senator.
That was really amazing. Trying to give Maxine Waters a run for her money maybe?

This is the first time I’m really sitting down and watching it. I’m very impressed with Judge Gorsuch.
I watched Comey yesterday with all of his waffling and posturing and his double speak, his really unprofessional citing of what Comey imagines to be Putin’s emotions (Putin hates Hillary 🤔) as an acceptable legal answer in a hearing and I am comparing Comey to Gorsuch. Gorsuch is giving consistent, emotion free, legal answers and I am just stoned like a jellyroll by the difference in the two men.
One is a judge who respects and is bound by the law, one is an immoral weasel.
Well…with Maxine Waters that would not be hard to do…

Remember whenever a democrat tells a person that they just want a yes or no answer to a complicated question they are really saying “I don’t care about your opinion I just want a soundbite so that I can lie about what your views are later on and in pressers.”
Al Franken has an attitude. 😦
I missed the second half 😐 but I agree about Franken he is an arrogant ignorant twit.
Seen on Facebook:
Confirmation hearing Q&A:
Ted Cruz: “What is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything?”
Neil Gorsuch: (without hesitation) “Forty-Two”
Lisa tenders an H/t to Charlie Martin for noting Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe moment, and says “The rest pales.”
I must have missed this series, book, or what ever this was…..cold you briefly explain or point me in the right direction……thank you
It was a “nerdy” joke question to loosen everyone up. Here’s a description:
42, the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything. This Answer was first calculated by the supercomputer Deep Thought after seven and a half million years of thought. This shocking answer resulted in the construction of an even larger supercomputer, named Earth, which was tasked with determining what the question was in the first place.
Thanks Stella, your the best!!!!! Must have missed this part of my educational curriculum….
I got it.. kinda… although I thought the answer was 46. 🙂
So long and thanks for all the fish.
Senator Hirano is another idiot.
Yesterday I fell asleep when she was speechifying… seriously, asleep in a chair.
Sitting down to watch it again and I see poor Gorsuch is explaining the separation of powers to another idiot. Gorsuch seems unflappable. Great temperament for a judge.
Good grief. Kennedy is a real *ss. Giving a judge who is clearly smarter, more well read and well versed than he is a vocabulary test 🙄.
I think Kennedy is smarter than he appears to be. He’s a good old boy, who wants to be underestimated, and I am thoroughly enjoying his questions.
He seems to be succeeding beyond his wildest hopes.
PS: You missed the real asses.
Well that’s too bad. I missed Franken, I’m sure he was a voice of sanity. Not.
Kennedy had some good questions, I thought, at the beginning of his period. He brought up some other aspects of Gorsuch’s cases that have been criticized by other Senators that put them in a much better light.
He did. I’m just being over critical because he was doing what the last guy I saw doing in conflating the different branches of the government and then when he asked Judge Gorsuch if he knew the meaning of enumerated it just annoyed me.
Ok, I actually saw this exchange, but the implication went right over my head (not hard to do) Anyway, there was an interesting take on it here, if you are interested..
Dubin was attempting a gotcha and missed by a mile. 🙂
I like that Gorsuch openly shows contempt and ridicule for jerks like Dick Durbin. And Durbin saying that he was happy to have given Gorsuch an opportunity to clarify the situation reminded me of this;
Gives it back to Feinstein and makes her look like a fool,
This is political theatrics, nothing more and nothing less. Only thing that surprises me is that the Rats are soooooo bad at it, as if they’re just phoning it in. Maybe they know he’s in and they’re just going thru the motions, that with two Justices just waiting for the Reaper’s scythe they’re looking at the battles ahead.
