Senator Ted Cruz pulled back the curtain today and showed the Democrats for the hypocrites they are by reminding them of the hearings a decade ago when Gorsuch sailed through confirmations without a ‘whisper’ of an objection.
The video below is Cruz’ entire opening statement, which begins with his thoughts on Justice Scalia and the honorable judge he was. His remarks on the Democrats’ blatant hypocrisy begin at the 6:24 mark. Enjoy.
Despite the fact that Gorsuch has an impeccable record and the American Bar Association has given him their highest possible rating of “well qualified” for SCOTUS, the Democrats still ran him through the grinder with every ‘gotcha’ question they could imagine. In the segments I watched, Gorsuch played them like a fiddle and nearly dripped with sugar when Feinstein lamely tried to corner him on the Second Amendment and gun control.
Ted Cruz has a knack for rubbing the Dems’ noses in their own hypocrisy, but I think I got my title wrong. First, the Dems would have to be capable of feeling shame.
