A Civil War in Congress

It is really all about hating Trump, not partisan politics.

There is no doubt that Judge Neil Gorsuch is qualified to sit on the Supreme Court and he will, the confirmation coming on Friday one way or another.

Republicans in the Senate must prevail on the judge or the entire party and the president will be gravely damaged.

And that's exactly what the Democratic Party wants.

The strategy is simple: Oppose every change the president wants to make, everything he wants to do.

Create as much mayhem as possible, then tell the American people that Mr. Trump doesn't know how to govern.

Meanwhile, the American people get hammered because worthy persons like Judge Gorsuch are disparaged and innovative policies are sabotaged.

I mean, did you watch any of the Gorsuch hearings?

I don't want to compare the judge to Jesus but it was exactly the same thing. Democratic senators acting like Pharisees trying to trap the judge into saying something controversial, trying to paint the man as someone not worthy of being on the Court.

Fair-minded folks respect sincerely held political differences. I know I do.

But political hit jobs are obvious, and that's what those hearings featured - gotcha questions designed to demean.

So we now have an opposition agenda primarily based on hate, not what's best for the country.

Just listen to the rhetoric on the left; it is vitriolic in the extreme.

The Trump-haters justify their behavior by saying the president is destroying the country. The issues of illegal immigration, global warming and national security have created fury on the left.

And as Talking Points stated last week, moderate Democrats are under heavy pressure to support the hate-Trump strategy.

It was interesting to watch Missouri Senator Clare McCaskill describe Judge Gorsuch as being cold against the regular folks.

Missouri is trending Republican these days, so the senator may soon come to regret her stance.

Finally, many Republicans opposed President Obama's agenda; there was little common ground there.

But five GOP senators voted to confirm the very liberal Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, President Obama got his trade authority and debt limits were raised.

The system was strained under Mr. Obama, but it functioned.

Now political hatred is directly threatening our republic.

And we the people will pay a huge price if things don't change.

That's the memo.
