Skip to comments.Chris Matthews: Gorsuch Vote Will Go To A Filibuster; Democrats Will Not Vote For Him "Not A One"
Posted on 01/31/2017 6:06:48 PM PST by i88schwartz
Matthews said politics have become so polarized that is natural to assume there will be a filibuster against Judge Gorsuch.
"I think this is going to come down, to a sad denouement," Matthews said Wednesday night. "I think it's going to take 60 votes to get this approved and I think the Republicans will have their rank-and-file 52 votes will be there. But I don't think the Democrats are going to give them a single vote which mean this will go to a filibuster."
"I don't think they'll get 60 votes because I don't think they'll get a single Democratic vote, Chris. Not a one," Matthews said.

Chrissy forgets that many of those senators live in states that Trump won overwhelmingly last year.
I’ll have to say, if McCain, Graham, and Rubio pull one of their classic antics, I want them GONE!
If the dems threaten a filibuster, make them actually do it. make them stand on the floor of the senate and talk non-stop. then call for a cloture vote and vote him in.
An empty threat should hold no weight.
Shut down the government until the Dems scream for mercy.
McCain and Graham have come out strongly for this pick.. Have not seen anything from Rubio but pretty sure he will.
Gee...they voted unanimously for him as an Appellate Judge. What’s changed???
Apparently The Spitter hasn’t heard of the Reid Nuclear Option.....
Yes, and looking down the road a spell, Dems are bound to lose some seats in ‘18 so they need to consider carefully whether this is really the hill they choose to die on.
I think the dems will blink and back off a filibuster vote....
Gorsuch simply puts the court back to a 5 - 4
When a justice retires or dies, it’s likely to be a liberal...
I think the dems will die on the hill to try and stop from having a 6 -3 court...
Watching Nancy Pelosi on CNN. A Evil Ghoul, and proponent of Mass murder. Every question from the Town Hall have been about abortion.
The Playbook is from the 90’s and it will not play with the Country.
Oh Boy. A Muslim pop’s up. How predictable.
Trump nomination for SC goes thru confirmation like a knife thru butter.
Protest are breaking out! I’m so happy about that. It does that this garbage isn’t spontaneous. Normal people aren’t, in 1 hour, up in arms about this
Wow, that’s interesting.
Thanks. I would not have guessed that.
Getting the popcorn out, the longer they drag it out the more their foolishness will be on display?
This is simple. Take the dems for their word. Change rules tonight to kill filibuster, skip the hearings, straight up vote in the morning. Don’t waste our time and all this money.
If they go filibuster, then the Republicans can go nuclear.
I would think they would be “reasonable” on this choice so they can pretend that their filibuster of the next one would be justified. But then these democrats are acting like 2 year olds. They will force the Republicans to go nuclear. Good. Bring it on, idiots.
why on this earth would you watch Pelosi on CNN doing a town hall and add ot their ratings when you can see tucker ripping liberals apart like he is now.
