AMNESIA: Here’s a list of Democrats Who Supported Neil Gorsuch in the Past

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other democratic leaders are calling for a filibuster of Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court. One problem: they’re forgetting that many prominent liberals SUPPORTED the nominee as recently as 2006.

“Judge Gorsuch was unable to sufficiently convince me that he’d be an independent check on a president who has shown almost no restraint from executive overreach,” said Sen. Schumer last week. “He was unable to convince me that he would be a mainstream justice who could rule free from the biases of politics and ideology.”

Schumer and other liberals were singing a different tune back in 2006, when Gorsuch was nominated by then-President George W. Bush to the Circuit Court and was unanimously confirmed.

Here’s a list of Democratic Senators who supported Judge Gorsuch in the past:
