The Atlantic: “That Gorsuch would ultimately take the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the high court has scarcely been in doubt in the weeks since President Trump nominated him 11 days after he took office. A well-regarded judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Colorado, Gorsuch has a legal resumé tailor-made for the Supreme Court, he’s won nearly universal praise from conservatives, and he emerged from his confirmation hearings with his reputation largely intact.
The only question has been whether Gorsuch would win the eight Democratic votes necessary to reach 60 and defeat a filibuster, or whether Democratic resistance would force Republicans to change Senate rules, invoke what’s known in Washington as “the nuclear option,” and confirm Gorsuch with a simple majority of 51 votes. Statements of opposition have flooded in from Democrats this week, making the answer clearer every day: Gorsuch is likely to fall short of 60 votes, and Republicans will have to jam his nomination through the Senate on their own.”
Lindsey Graham was on Fox today claiming he would not be opposed to using the nuclear option if the libs carry out their threat to filibuster Gorsuch. Graham was against it a few days ago. He justified it saying if Gorsuch was not accepted nobody they nominated would be. Think about it, Lindsey Graham and the GOP that refused to stop Obama push a filibuster?
Pres Trump has spoken about coming together, what about the idea of republicans working with the democrats in the future?
