Senators Johnny Isakson And David Perdue React To Neil Gorsuch’s Confirmation

The US Senate voted 54 to 45 today to confirm Neil Gorsuch as the 113th Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Both of Georgia’s US Senators issued statements praising Gorsuch and the Senate for his confirmation.

From Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA):

U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today applauded Senate confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as the next justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Isakson, who is in Georgia today recovering from two back surgeries, was not present for today’s vote. He was in Washington on Thursday and spoke in favor of Judge Gorsuch during debate on the Senate floor.

 “Judge Gorsuch’s judicial temperament and his ironclad commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law make him an excellent addition to our nation’s highest court,” said Isakson. “I’m so proud to have someone like Judge Gorsuch who will serve on the Supreme Court with wisdom and distinction, continuing the fine legacy of the man whom he will replace, the late Justice Antonin Scalia.”

From Senator David Perdue (R-GA):

U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) released the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch as the next Associate Justice to the United States Supreme Court:

“Judge Gorsuch is an unwavering supporter of the United States Constitution, and the best person to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia,” said Senator Perdue. “I was honored and proud to vote to confirm Judge Gorsuch, and I am certain he will continue to show remarkable leadership, integrity, and evenhandedness as our next Associate Justice to the Supreme Court.”

Great candidate. Will be great Justice. Cannot wait for Trump’s next choice. Will be even more of a strict Constitutionalist.

Woot Woot! Lots of wailing and weeping going on in Lefty Land this evening. This judge is too smart, too decent, too qualified for their tastes. I think Scalia would be well pleased.

Ecstatic, even! Calling Paul Simon for a re-write: Ahem…clearing throat: “Where have you gone Joe Dimagi-ROE!!”

You think Roe is getting overturned? That’s cute.

Another strict constructionist? Yep. Back to the states. Where it should have been anyway.

Except Gorsuch recognizes that Roe is settled law. The only conservative legal scholars who actually think Roe can/will be overturned are the ones pandering for votes in their Senate campaigns.

If given the chance to truly overturn Roe, Gorsuch will be voting to overturn the federal blessing on the killing of children. Regardless whether or not he told a gaggle of idiot senators it was “settled law.” Thats why the next choice is even more important.

Odds are 5-4 for the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Hypocrites. At least Gorsuch will be a reminder of the corporatist GOP’s deep corruption in case working people ever make the mistake again of thinking this party represents them.

If we Republicans had only one reason to vote in the election, this quality of Supreme Court judge was it.

so many people applauding this stolen seat obtained through obstruction and partisan politics is pathetic. but a corrupt oval office needs to stack it’s deck so sure…yay for the constitutionalist that was appointed by politicians ignoring the constitution

They followed the famed Biden Rule, not considering a SC replacement in a prez’ final year! Not stolen whatsoever. Deal with it!! The only pols that ever try to steal any damn thing are goons like Gore, Franken, Stein and Hilly! Quit your blubbering! It’s truly pathetic!

“More constructive… less lib.”
Noway, less then a month ago.

You may carry on with your caterwauling…

Did I type the word “lib” here? Nope. I just identified political shenanigans attempted by those I listed. I just listed facts. You don’t have to like them. You’re better than that, Ellynn.

Need to work on the constructive. I have no issue with your POV or the argument.
‘Blubbering’ ‘Pathetic’… Your better then that, Noway.

I’m trying to keep you out of T R O U B L E.

Yeah, if Charlie is banning people (rightly) for stuff like he called out a few weeks ago, I’m not sure how dropping (https://www.georgiapol.com/2017/04/07/morning-reads-april-7-2017/) to Dave Bearse “And tell me David, how many of the very children you claim to want to protect have been scraped from their mother’s uterus in the last week? Hypocrite…” is considered acceptable behavior, especially from someone that everyone left, right, and center on these boards would agree is the biggest troll on these boards.

Can’t believe no one made a Frankenstein joke here.
Sad, because Frankenstein and Gore sounds like a horrifying ticket.

You know, did anyone come to my defense when a current poster wished for my death back at the old site. Did anyone rebuke a front page poster here for his calling out Trump supporters as Nazis ?

You know, I thank Charlie and Jon for this forum. I have enjoyed it immensely.

I think I’m done .

I don’t remember reading that analogy abt Trump supporters, but if I did and didn’t rebuke that, then my bad. Being anti-Nazi-overgeneralizations is a thing I’d do.
I also don’t mind the “blubbering, but “pathetic is probably also an unncssry overgeneralization.
But I also think calling the SC seat “stolen is also off-base. Politics was played. Been playin that way for a long time. Maybe it’s like baseball, where it’s perfectly legal to steal…
Politics is an arena that does not treat the weak-willed well.
