Skip to comments.Democrats: Trump ‘Stole’ Neil Gorsuch Seat from Obama
Posted on 02/01/2017 6:40:04 AM PST by Rockitz
Democrats were seething Tuesday night over President Donald Trumps decision to nominate Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, claiming that Trump stole the seat from President Barack Obama.
In a fundraising email, the Democratic National Committee said (original emphasis):
Judge Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trumps newly-revealed Supreme Court nominee, has a legal history that shows a deep sympathy for corporate interests and an apparent disdain for workers.
Donald wants to put Judge Gorsuch in the Supreme Court seat the GOP stole from President Obama. Add your name to tell the Senate to reject his nomination.
As an attorney, Judge Gorsuch routinely represented big businesses in class action lawsuits. As a judge on the Tenth Circuit, he wrote a concurring opinion in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius the case that allowed employers to deny basic health care coverage to women by ruling the Affordable Care Acts contraceptive mandate was unconstitutional.

And here is my unsubstantiated opinion.
THE DEMOCRATS MURDERED SCALIA!
I hate to be repetitive, but as I read the article I just kept repeating my tag line in my head, with an odd smirk on my face. :)
Democrats do not like it when the rules work against them (but are happy to re-write the rules to help them).
Suck it up snowflakes, it is the way our system works.
If Hillary would have won you would not care one bit about what conservatives thought about her nominee, you would be dancing in the streets joyful over our tears.
THE DEMOCRATS MURDERED SCALIA!
I almost went there.
Only because they were so sure Hillary was going to win.
clearly this is satire! how could it be possible for Trump to steal this appointment from Obama??????????? if Hillary had won, and she appointed a nominee, would they say she stole it from Obama?????!!!!!!!!!
As do I. The whole debacle around the events of his death stinks to high heaven.
If true they must be killed in a brutal and painful way. I believe intel knows this and has the evidence.
Riight. But it was alright for the Dems to “steal” a choice from Bush.
Oh sorry that only applies to Republican Presidents
Trump wasn’t President during the time. The claim is insane. Or at least stupid.
A ‘Justice of the Peace’ who I recall WAS NOT EVEN THERE!
OMG! I love this! More for the libs to cry and moan about. Priceless!
Actually Mitch stole it on his behalf. Thanks Mitch! You’ve played a role in preserving the country for a little while longer

Is there not a single member of Congress to stand up and remind the Democrats and the people at large that it was the Democrats that made the rule that lame duck Presidents don’t get to name Supreme Court judges?
President Trump is the master of “right back at you”. Congress needs to lead, follow or get out the way.
Childish, spoiled Dems.
Libs “stole” America from God.
Time to to move in the RIGHT direction.
