    You May disagree with his politics. You may disagree with his rulings. But the man has class!

      He certainly has class, unlike anyone in the Obama admin., and also the geriatric hag Ginsburg who ignored protocol to criticize Trump as a candidate and had to apologize for it after huge social media protests!

      When I first saw and heard him, I thought: His wife is a lucky woman!! Married to an honorable man; a man of integrity- how refreshing after 8 yrs of "Bubba" Clinton and the "stars" of the dem party:  Wasserman-Shultz,  Donna Brazile  and let's not forget Pelosi and her stooges including Schumer. None of them are fit to wipe Gorsuch's shoes and in their hearts, they know it.

      He does. Although, why would anyone want to sit there for hours while these bloviating ego maniacs who love the sound of their own voices grill him?  Their posturing and gotcha attitude is disheartening. He must truly believe that he can make a difference. As do many citizens.

      Neil Gorsuch is the most qualified man that anyone could find for this position. I am all over 99% of his politics, so I have no problem with him on any point. Besides that I love the way he and his wife show their love for one another.

      I don't disagree with his politics.  I don't disagree with his rulings.  And I think that a man with class will serve with distinction, and bring some intelligence to the Supreme Court, something that has been missing for the last few months from the court, and from the left-side for several decades.

      His class and integrity is a condemnation of all of them who serve only their party and themselves and after 8 yrs of "Bubba" Clinton et al, it's hopefully a sign of things to come- the beginning of the end of these corrupt parsites. Their intense hatred for Pres Trump will lead to their own destruction- i.e: Rachel Maddow's embarrassment recently.

      You are so right Gary. He is a REAL person. To me that is one of the best compliments I could give. It was given to me in the past and I was honored. I don't think I could receive a better compiment so I like to use this the same way. I too believe the President should just use the nuclear option after all Obama went on his own enough times because he knew he couldn't get the votes.

      Martha Robinson, Garland was Obama's last futile attempt at packing the Supreme Court.  Presidents do NOT nominate a Supreme Court Judge during an election year (unless they have a same-party packed Congress & think they can get away with it) it just isn't done & Congress ignored Obama's nomination of Garland because the expected & accepted thing is for the new President to nominate the next SCOTUS judge.  The thing was, everyone expected Hillary to win & go ahead with Garland's nomination.  Hillary lost & President Trump won the right to nominate the next Supreme Court Judge. That's how politics is played.

    Neil Gorsuch is the most qualified nominee to the SCOTUS since Robert Bork, and it is our nation's great and enduring loss that Bork's stellar intellect and character was attacked and destroyed by a despicable liberal. This should never be allowed to happen again, yet the left is already beginning the campaign to destroy today's outstanding choice for the court. The left wants only justices who will rule the way the left wishes regardless of the law. They support activist's on the court they can rely upon to create new law bypassing the legislature, and that alone is unconstitutional. Whether the law supports some judges personal agenda or not, a judge is required to rule soley on the basis of the law and its intent putting aside any personal bias. That is what liberals oppose. If laws need changed, it is the legislature's responsibility to change them and no one else's. Nine unelected justices do not have the authority under our nation's Constitution to take many of the actions they have taken for many years. We need justices like Mr. Gorsuch to begin rectifying what has become an out-of-control judiciary.  If President Trump has the opportunity to appoint another justice or two before leaving office, I hope he can do as well as he has with Neil Gorsuch.

    He goes by the constitution unlike the Jusge in Hawaii who made his decisio based on his feelings. This judge needs to go straight through. This is going to be a rough 4 years for the President the left will stop and nothing until they can have the President resign or get him impeached. I'm am throughly disgusted by this. We finally have a President who cares for this Country and the people in it and the money grubbing senate and congress don't like it. We need to continue to pray to God for President Trumps safety and for President Trump. These crooks can't win we the people spoke on November 8th, 2016 along with the help of God. God Bless America. God Bless Pre Trump.

     As the Liberals are 100% against anything that we do, perhaps we can leave them with this thought, illegal aliens coming into this country are just that illegal, if you really want them to be here, get your checkbook out and support them cradle to grave. Real Americans tax dollars are not going to support this illegal garbage. And that goes for the endowment for the arts and all the other liberal garbage that cost millions of dollars that could be used better elsewhere. Again get your check books out if you want all this nasty stuff that's out there that you were whining about us cutting start paying for it with your own money. This is America you have the freedom to do that! 

    Once that is done what will you have left to whine about?

      I don't think the "endowment of the arts"  is liberal garbage. I think we're just in a place we can't afford it right now, kind of like when you have to choose between buying groceries or a new video game.

      Yuri, you  are a jackass who clearly haven't looked at those rulings. Yes, he has ruled 10 to one in favor of corporations. The reason being that that corporations sue each other on a daily basis, people generally dont. 

      In other words he has ruled in favor of one corporation over another corporation, not a corporation vs a person.

      Be a good idea to investigate for yourself, rather than repeat what you've heard...unless your being paid to spread lies, of course.

    if this man really has the integrity and humanity that he's exibiting in order to get his confirmation hearing then his appointment will at some point obviously come back to bite Trump in the ass. Here's a judge who's only pretending to agree with the political views of these right-wing nut jobs just to get their support. I have a sneaky feeling that once this man gets into the supreme court, his own political views are going to do a complete 180, and he's going to wind up losing all of his right-wing support. Things are about to get very interesting indeed. lol

      Pretending? Evidently you don't know the meaning of integrity.

      Go over to your local public library and get a library card (they are usually free). Then have the librarian show you how to use a dictionary (any librarian can help you with the words you dont understand)

      Then, look into the life history of Judge Gorsuch.

      By now, you should have a notion of the meaning of integrity.

      A judge isn't supposed to issue his opinions based on feelings; it is supposed to be based on the Constitution.  The only way to know if a potential judge will follow the Constititution is to look at their history.  Not a foolproof way, but the only way we have available now.

      this man has already distanced himself from Trump, or haven't any of you been following recent events. This man has a ton of integrity and humanity. Two words that Trump wouldn't even know the first thing about. Trump isn't going to get what he wants. I'm all for this man getting into the supreme court, and there's a very good reason for that. This man is going base all of his judicial decisions on the letter of the law, and not on the whims of Trump.  He's a conservative, but he's not an extremist, and the fact that this man will uphold the US constitution is the one fact that's going to piss Trump off. The bottom line is, this man's not going to let Trump get away with murder, and I commend him for that.

    Just watching the hearings today (Tues.) and trying to make something out of what dick disturbing is saying.  He said the decision he was referencing was lengthy and he had a hard time getting through it.  The senator from IL is so dense and so dumbfounding that I am sure he lost his train of thought before he finished with his comment, which went on for over 5 minutes.  The Judge was enjoying it, though.  He had an expression on his face that more or less said " did you understand what you read?  No?  Didn't think so.
