It would appear that Gorsuch may be one of the finest legal minds of this century. Is that true?
One need not travel further than reading the Yellowbear decision or accept his notion that a judge must sometimes dislike his decisions to find honor here. We all want our nation to feel our passion and compassion. It takes a great legal mind to put that aside and apply law instead of politics or a desire to do your own brand of good. "Brilliance is the ability to apply justice, not as you would have it be, but as our laws require it to be". He has the ability to balance good of man against good of state, with a full moral compass.
I have to say yes to this question. With one sentence, Gorsuch made me a believer in his ability to make wise and just decisions. When he said, “A judge who likes every outcome he reaches is very likely a bad judge..." I was sold before he even finished his sentence. I hope the democrats quit messing around and let this man serve our country for the good he will bring to the justice system.
