As it is clearly visible, Democrats are not happy about Supreme Court’s decisions about the newly-installed Justice Neil Gorsuch. The decisions released this week clearly indicates that he is a die hard conservative. This is what the republicans wanted and prayed for his nomination.
“We’ve got another Scalia,” siad Sen.Dianne Feinstein of California, a top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Feinstein told POLITICO that per her obseervations of early rulings of Gorsuch, there were no signs of moderation. “Right down the line. Everything,” she mentioned. “I’m surprised that it’s so comprehensive.”
As mentioned in POLITICO
Feinstein told POLITICO she’d looked at Gorsuch’s early rulings and saw no sign of moderation from conservative orthodoxy. “Right down the line. Everything — everything,” she said. “I’m surprised that it’s so comprehensive.”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut — a former Supreme Court clerk — said Gorsuch’s early record on the court is in tension with the humble and evenhanded approach he touted during his confirmation hearings in March.
“In a way, I’m surprised that he hasn’t demonstrated more independence. I am surprised because in his demeanor and his tone he really made a huge effort to show his openness — which some of us thought might be more an act than it was a real persona,” Blumenthal said, before adding: “So far, I have to say, I’m disappointed.”
“On the travel ban, I think he’s fulfilling the worst expectations so far of his opponents and probably the best hopes of his supporters,” Blumenthal said.
It will be interesting to see if this strong conservative judge remains so or incline towards liberals when taking a decision. All previous track records show this unique pattern.
