Krauthammer: Gorsuch Hearing 'An Exercise in Obfuscation'
Charles Krauthammer said Democrats' hours-long questioning of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch on Tuesday amounted to an "exercise in obfuscation."
Krauthammer praised Gorsuch's ability to "say nothing and give nothing away" regarding his personal feelings about potential cases.
A Supreme Court nominee must be nimble against pointed questions, Krauthammer said, calling fierce questioning by Democrats including Sens. Al Franken of Minnesota and Richard Durbin of Illinois "an exercise in obfuscation."
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made it a principle that she would not reveal how she would rule, while being confirmed, Krauthammer said.
Gorsuch's job "is to dance... and stay independent."
He also reacted to Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) who said that not one Democrat has endorsed Gorsuch.
