House minority leader calls Gorsuch a "hostile appointment"

link

She also said the nomination* was a diversion from the ongoing refugee "ban."

It's a nomination, not an appointment, so Pelosi is wrong out of the gate.

Pelosi - Does she know she's a laughingstocke?

minus the e on the end?

She will never be House Majority Speaker again because the Dems will double down on her way of thinking. I can't wait for the whole "sanctuary city" issue to explode. What might be optimal would be for the family of a past or present victim to personally sue her and the State of CA officials for refusing to cooperate with law enforcement doing their jobs. The case could go all the way to SCOTUS where she'd finally be put in her place.

Wow. That's some kind of long game Trump is playing... to make the GOP not only stall the Obama pick but to run out the clock and then use it to distract a 90 day travel ban from countries Obama himself pointed out for repercussions i.e. ISIS.

Trump is a Machiavellian genius.

Hostile?

You mean she thought another Roberts was going to be appointed?

Them days is over, sweetie.

Lem said...

Even Bill Kristol is singing Trump praises:

"This is--by far--the best moment of the Trump presidency."

AprilApple said...

Did you watch this video.? Do so. It's fun.

AprilApple said...

I'm nervous that Gorsuch went to a local leftist Church.

I hope not!

Lem said...

I tell you though. It's still a crapshoot with these guys. There is really no way to guarantee we're not getting another Souter.

AprilApple said...

That's just it, we cannot afford another Souter.

Lem said...

Oh my god that was funny. "Let's introduce the real people... where are they?"

ndspinelli said...

April, He lives in Boulder. Isn't it like Madison, everything is leftist?

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Nasty Nancy just recognizes that Gorsuch is getting confirmed!

Methadras said...

Pelosi is a cunt. That is all. Her entire existence is hostile to the sanity of right thinking peoples everywhere.

I would have preferred Ted Cruz.

Chip Ahoy said...

But whom would you have preferred?

edutcher said...

Anybody but the One True Ted.

He's the real Souter.

Sixty Grit said...

Tom Cruz, if that is his real name, needs to stay in the senate. And quit tripping people on the basketball court.

AprilApple said...

ND - 70%+ leftist. Boulder might actually be worse than Madison.
St. John's episcopal church is where leftist Christians go to church.
It worries me that he might be affiliated with it.

Not good.

AprilApple said...

I hope my fears are unfounded.

AprilApple said...

In my option, a church should not be political at all.

I attend Flatirons church, I can tell you I do not detect politics. The parking lot is a mixed bag of bumper-stickers from left to right. That is as it should be. Everyone should feel welcome.

St. John's episcopal church in Boulder is leftist money grub. I know first hand because I had to deal with them when my aunt died. Buncha money-obsessed phonies.

AprilApple said...

Lem - See if this works. Someone posted this in an Insty thread. I loled.

Gorsuch has attended three colleges-- Columbia, Harvard, and Oxford. Statistics show that one in four college coeds are sexually assaulted. By my reckoning that means that there's a 75% probability that Gorsuch is a sexual predator. Just on this ground alone, he should be rejected.

This pick breaks the Catholic/Jewish monopoly.

ndspinelli said...

Will Trump be the fist Prez to pick a Muslim? My tongue is planted in cheek.

Amartel said...

Pelosi is only important to the Dems because of geography: She brings the bags o' money that fund their religion. In all other respects she is a hopeless, useless waste of space. She's not even a good spokesmodel like King Putt was. An idiot with money. Like that ever ends well ...

Amartel said...

The lefty church thing is potentially concerning but, as someone who lives in deepest blue America and operates in a deep blue profession, the fact that he has stayed conservative despite attending lefty church may also speak very well for him. It's easy to be conservative when you are surrounded by conservatives; not so much when you're trapped in their tank. Let's wait and see on that one.

Amartel said...

(The lefty's tank, that is.)

Amartel said...

Trump should pick Janice Rogers Brown for his next Supreme Court appointment.

Amartel said...

I wanna see the heads exploding when that happens.

AprilApple said...

Amartel-- You are correct. He's probably fine. My personal experience just with that specific church freaked me out a bit. Thanks for your levity.

Why pick an attorney or judge? A history or economics scholar will do. The constitution is only 6 pages long, only a lawyer would twist it and squeeze it to make it say what it doesn't. A penalty is a tax!, indeed.

Amartel said...

Why pick an attorney or judge? Because of the 240 years of interpretation of the 6 page constitution.
