"For conservatives, Gorsuch meets conservative standards as an originalist and a textualist — someone who interprets the Constitution and statutes as they were originally written.

He has given voice to concerns about “executive overreach” — a frequent complaint aimed at the Obama administration’s use of executive orders to achieve goals that ran into legislative gridlock."



By all reports is a highly-respected, strict constructionist , From out west..... who supports the supremacy of the individual over the state.

He also happens to be the 1st Protestant White male nominated to the court since 1975......

Which means MikeKerriii should be along any minute now to warn us that a "Hitlerian style Nazi takeover" of the United States is afoot.

I'm still not tired of winning!

So, no scandals, nor black marks. Just not what the progressives would want right? Gee, wonder if the dems are kicking themselves in the but for removing the filibuster from needing a 2/3rds vote to stop the stalling tactic?

Judge Gorsuch seems to be a 1 for 1 replacement for Scalia, which would not modify the balance of what the Court was before Scalia died.

I wonder if the Dems don't fight him too hard, so they can seem non-obstructionist but wait when a liberal Justice leaves (possibly during Trump's term) they fight if Trump nominates a conservative to replace the liberal.

Under current rules they still need 60 Senators to vote for cloture (to move the vote to an up or down vote). Supreme Court nominations were the only ones not effected by the rule change in 2013.
