McConnell threatens to ‘break the rules to change the rules’ to confirm Gorsuch

I never see any criticism about Gorush as a SC nominee, only about the process in confirming him. Why is that? And if you want to again write about the hypocrisy of a Republicans then what about Schumer? He said this last June

“Senate Republicans need to do their job and give Judge Garland the hearing and vote he deserves because the American people deserve a fully functioning court. Having a deadlocked, 4–4 court could lead to judicial chaos surrounding environmental protections, voting rights, and so many other issues that are important to everyday Americans. This delay has gone on long enough, it’s time for the Senate to do the job we were elected to do.”

And just 6 months later he was interviewed by Rachel Maddow and he said

Maddow argued that the Democrats should refuse to fill the empty seat for the entirety of Trump’s four-year presidency.

“It’s hard for me to imagine a nominee that Donald Trump would choose that would get Republican support that we could support. So you’re right,” he responded.

“And so you will do your best to hold the seat open?” asked Maddow.

“Absolutely,” Schumer said.

So in just 6 months Schumer went from claiming “judicial chaos” if the 9th SC seat was not filled to saying he has no problem with leaving that 9th seat open for the next 4 years. That is absolutely bizarre
