2 By Floor: Dems Slam Gorsuch For Using Legal Precedent Over Feelings

Eric Scheiner | March 31, 2017

Liberals are really concerned that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch might use the rule of law instead of his feelings in reaching decisions, should he be confirmed as a justice.

Yep. They are worried about the feelings in his “heart.”

In the Senate Tuesday, Sen. Mazie Hirono took to the floor to question Gorsuch’s heart and criticize his history of making decisions based on legal precedent.



“When I met with Judge Gorsuch he told me he had a heart,” Hirono said. “After four days of hearings I still don't know what's in his heart.”

This episode from a General Hospital script continued for a while. She later told a tale about the family of an autistic child that lost a suit against a school district, a case Judge Gorsuch ruled on.

“I'm quoting Judge Gorsuch,” Hirono said. “'If anyone is suggesting that I like a result where an autistic child happens to lose that's a heart-breaking accusation to me, heart-breaking. But the fact of the matter is, I was bound by circuit precedent.’”

Wow. So the liberals are upset that he’ll use the rule of law in reaching his decisions. At a time where liberals accept that how you ‘feel’ can change your biological sex and what bathroom you can use. This must scare them to the core.

A country where laws and logic overrule feelings? This just can’t happen! If it did, liberals would have to accept the results of the 2016 presidential election, which clearly is just way too hard.

“I also remind the gentlemen that he mentioned Donald Trump's election,” Rep. Jim McGovern said on the House floor Wednesday.

“I would remind him that less than half the people in the United States actually voted for him. Hillary won by the popular vote.”

Yes, that was actually part of Rep. McGovern’s arguments on the floor of the House Wednesday. McGovern was against a measure changing the membership requirements of the EPA’s Science Advisory Board. 

So part of the Congressional record on the argument against  expanding the range of voices on the EPA science board, is that Hillary won the popular vote.

Not surprisingly, with debate skills that razor sharp, McGovern and his cronies lost the argument and the bill passed.

Perhaps though, they ‘feel’ they won the popular argument, so they really won. Polish up the “Floor Debate” participation trophies, there’s an award ceremony coming. Right?
