Krauthammer Outlines How Dems Will Oppose Gorsuch Nomination
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer told Bill O'Reilly how he believes Senate Democrats will stall or block Judge Neil Gorsuch's confirmation to the Supreme Court.
"Unless you can find personal peccadillos in [Gorsuch's] life you can exploit... the way you smear the candidate [is] taking the outcome of his rulings" and connecting them to the ideology of the judge.
Krauthammer said Gorsuch's statement during his nomination acceptance speech that 'any judge who likes the outcome of all of his cases is a bad judge' will help indemnify him against Democratic criticism of his record.
He compared the criticisms he predicts will come Gorsuch's way to the failed nomination of Judge Robert Bork to the Supreme Court in the 1980s.
At the time, within an hour of Bork's nomination by former President Ronald Reagan, former Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) took to the Senate floor and "totally distorted [Bork's] record," Krauthammer said.
But, Krauthammer said Gorsuch's case is "absolutely a slam dunk" within the next three months.
