SCARED: Dems Break From Schumer SCOTUS Obstruction Strategy
Chuck Schumer is finding out the hard way that going against Trump gains him nothing.
Smart senators get it. The Democrats have 25 Senators up for re-election in 2018, and many see the writing on the wall. It doesn’t take Nostradamus to understand that Trump is winning against the Democrats.
As Trump’s poll numbers rise, those of Congress, particularly the Democrats in Congress continue to degrade. It will only get worse.
Once the nonsense of Russia has blown over, Trump will have defeated the media industrial complex, the Clinton machine, and the vast Left-wing conspiracy that really does exist.
Thus many Democrats have begun defecting from Chuck Schumer.
In a Facebook town-hall meeting with Montanans last night, Democrat Jon Tester pushed for Judge Gorsuch to get “a fair shake” when his confirmation comes before the Senate.
SEN. TESTER: Gorsuch is the nominee for the Supreme Court. This is a very important position, maybe one of the most important decisions I make as a United States Senator. As you well know, the Supreme Court, the third branch of government, plays a very, very important role in the checks and balances and the law of this land, and I think it’s important that we give Neil Gorsuch a fair shake, and I have met with him in my office. He presents himself very, very well. I can’t tell you if I’m going to vote for him or against him at this time because I need to do more work looking at some of the decisions he’s made, some of the opinions he’s written, and then we’ll make a determination.
Tester joins fellow Democrats Senators Durbin, Shaheen and several others in calling for Gorsuch to be treated fairly by Senate Democrats.
Sen Durbin: “We’ve had a handful of Democratic senators who’ve already announced they’re voting no. Many people in some parts of the base think we should all make that announcement. I just don’t think that’s appropriate.”
Sen. Shaheen: “To suggest that we should not get a fair hearing on the nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Gorsuch, I think is just not something that’s going to be good for the American people.”
This type of a defection is considered sacrilege by Democrats.
Schumer has garnered support from Elizabeth Warren, Jeff Merkely, and others who said they’d oppose Judge Gorsuch before or in the immediate aftermath of his nomination. You can almost bet that all these senators have no race in 2018.
Jon Tester, the Senator from Montana knows that his political career lies in the balance. He see that President Trump truly has a God-inspired presidency.
First, there was his surprising victory. Next, the crooked Democrats made it easy, with the help of WikiLeaks. They were brutally exposed with no chance of redemption. Then their sock puppets, the media were exposed as well. Formerly believable, the media was finally marginalized.
Nevertheless, the worse continues.
Democrats maintain their cocky attitude, acting as if they won. But the smart ones know they didn’t win, and they continue to lose.
