    The Trump appointee to the Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch is philosophically to the right of Scalia and it is hard to believe that anyone could be to the right of Scalia but it is unwise to speak ill of the dead even if that is all he did for the country.

    Neil Gorsuch past record reveals he will be aggressively hostile to all the rights gained for the American people during the past century; women's rights, civil rights, voting rights, reproductive rights, gay rights and he will also be hostile to all regulations that prevent the poisoning of the people's food, water, air and soil.

    Anyone who votes for this dark age creep really hates this country and its people.

    Is this meant to be political satire or a caricature?

    Thanks, my BS detection software flagged it (and similar other posts) with rating of 98%, but sometimes satire gets flagged too. :)

    I was thinking if Trump truly wanted to shake up washington, and shock the public, he would have re-nominated Merrick Garland and say: "If you want someone else nominated, then go on the record and reject Merrick Garland ". That would have been the right thing to do, and the unexpected thing.

    WWJD ; Sure then you don't know the "mind" of Trump; he only wants "chaos" what he calls an "fine tuned machine"

    What Trump wants is his way. He is a competitive negotiator. He is not an institutionist. Trump is totally described by his weekends. Big parties surrounded by congratulatory fans.

    WWJD, I have posts from the beginning of Trumps candidacy explaining how he is a formidable candidate. He never tried to win. Read my Oct28,2016 post. Trump was behind in the polls and he wasn't spending money like he wanted to win. I said why the polls were wrong and why he could win. My point is that Trump didn't expect to win. But he did win and that is more dangerous than people can perceive, comprehend and understand. Doing his best to lose he won anyways. What that means to a billionaire that has already got to think that he is special is that now he must think he is the chosen of the chosen. A religious person thinking he has a mandate from god. I watched his press conference on Wednesday, he was condescendingly presiding. He can do no wrong. He is a very very dangerous nuclear power because he thinks he was chosen by god.

    Dutch, You are really starting to bore me with your stupid thoughtless remarks. I never ever said anything even remotely close in your wildness imagination that said he was a good person. I warned you and the rest of the world to not underestimate him. I said he had a characteristic that was drawing support to him. You guys were all blowing him off while I was warning how he could win. He had a draw like Hitler, Mussolini and a list of other dictators that drew support. You are totally not understanding of the dangerous side of charisma, but that is what got Trump elected.

    Dutch, read and undersdtand:

    "for·mi·da·ble

    ˈfôrmədəb(ə)l,fərˈmidəb(ə)l/
    adjective
    inspiring fear or respect through being impressively large, powerful, intense, or capable.
    "a formidable opponent"
    synonyms: intimidating, forbidding, daunting, disturbing, alarming, frightening, disquieting, brooding, awesome, fearsome, ominous, foreboding, sinister, menacing, threatening, dangerous "
    I have to think you are attacking my posts for fun or some other reason. But it doesn't make sense why.

    Why do all of your threads somehow get turned into one where you talk about Trump's charisma or how awesome you are for predicting that he will win (even though Clinton won by 3 million votes)?

    Trump's charisma has nothing to do with Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court hearings.

    Please, for the love of the God I don't believe in, try to actually keep focused on the original topic for once. We get it. You predicted Trump will be President. Congratulations. But predicting Donald's Presidency has nothing to do with his Supreme Court pick.

    Yes Jared absolutely correct; "charisma" or "formidable" is not the subject; neither word applies to Corsuch or Trump.

    "Clinton won" Did you intentionally type that ? Have you seen her ? Winner ? She's a beaten woman and she's the child who was awarded the "participation" trophy. Sure she got more votes and lost "Bigly". She has not approached victory. Lose the term won.

    Yes. I did intentionally type that.

    I typed it because she received three million more votes than Donald. She won the most votes and would have won the election if the people were allowed to pick their leader.

    Can we please not not let this thread go off the rails and turn into a back and forth about the electoral college? Let's please try to stay focused on Trump's Supreme Court pick.

    Trump's pick reflects something about Trump himself. He actually has no moral center, no belief structure other than himself. He was a supporter of the right of women to choose before he was against it. He donated to Democratic causes until he decided to run as a Republican. His talk of bringing jobs back is combined with comments that American workers are paid too much. His pick of Gorsuch is based upon his belief that continuing to spout rw views including cozying up to the pharisaical right will benefit him 4 years from now. That may actually work because the electorate actually supported Bush in the election he won as opposed to the one where he was appointed.

    Yes, charismatic applies because the American people in the aggregate are transfixed by wealth and ridiculous displays of wealth. Whether or not Hillary won the popular vote means nothing because the reality is every single winner of the popular vote can lose the presidency based upon the system created by the 18th century oligarchs called the founders. They distrusted democracy utterly.
