The Fantastic Pick of Judge Gorsuch

Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch is a fantastic pick.

After the death of Justice Scalia, President Trump confirmed a hope of many conservatives that the president would elect a competent, constitutionalist judge. This judge is Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Gorsuch was appointed to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals by President George W. Bush in 2006. The Senate appointed him without much objection. He also holds an extensive and impressive law resume, graduating from Harvard Law and was a Marshall Scholar at Oxford University. Before his judicial appointment, Gorsuch served as a high-ranking official to President George W. Bush’s justice department. He is also pretty young for a Court Justice, being only 49 years old.

Gorsuch is also very comparable intellectually to Justice Scalia, a fact that appeases many people. Also, many of Gorsuch’s critics today voted for him in 2006, and only seemed to be critical of the judge after his nomination from President Trump. Gorsuch has actually opposed President Trump on several issues.

In Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing, the Judge seemed to intellectually shred his opposers during questioning, refuting several bogus claims from key democrats and seemingly educating his questioners live on the law of the constitution. Throughout his questioning, he was constantly bombarded with personal questions on how he felt about certain laws and rulings. Gorsuch handled himself exceptionally well, responding to each of these questions with simple responses which, in general, were that the law is his job, not his opinion.

The sad thing for conservatives, and the sad part about these last few weeks, has been that the focus has been of the TrumpCare debacle and not the exceptional Judge Gorsuch’s induction.
