Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) is about done with the Democrat Party’s pile of lies and hypocrisies. The Senator has been so upset with their recent actions that on Wednesday he stood on the Senate floor and unmasked their naked hypocrisy and partisanship with one short speech.
How did he do it?
Cotton simply used the Democrats own words against them.
“Even those who oppose Judge Gorsuch used to sing a different tune about the standards for judicial confirmation. For instance, the senior senator from California put it best when she said: ‘I think when it comes to filibustering a Supreme Court appointment, you really have to have something out there, whether it’s gross moral turpitude or something that comes to the surface.’ Speaking of a previous Republican president’s nominee, she further said, ‘Now, I mean, this is a man I might disagree with. That doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be on the court.’
In fact, President Obama filibustered a Supreme Court nomination while he was a senator, yet later expressed regret over that decision. He said, ‘I think that, historically, if you look at it, regardless of what votes particular senators have taken, there’s been a basic consensus, a basic understanding, that the Supreme Court is different. And each caucus may decide who’s going to vote where and what but that basically you let the vote come up, and you make sure that a well-qualified candidate is able to join the bench, even if you don’t particularly agree with them.’
