While I can sympathize with conservatives who believe Amy Coney Barrett would’ve been a better SCOTUS pick because it could’ve avoided the political circus we’ve been watching unfold in recent weeks, you have to remember that the Left would’ve come up with something else to attack her over. After all, just think about how absolutely ridiculous all the criticisms Kavanaugh faced were before Christine Blasey Ford came forward as an accuser. Remember when the press was shaming him for buying baseball tickets?
The Left is going to bork any SCOTUS candidate Trump puts forward (Neil Gorsuch was an exception only because his nomination wasn’t in a midterm year), so picking a nominee to cater to the Left would be like an abused woman catering to her abuser. What’s the sense in that – especially when Republicans control the Senate anyway?
In reality, Brett Kavanaugh is objectively the most qualified SCOTUS nominee on President Donald Trump’s shortlist, so why even consider anyone else? To recap, here are four reasons why Kavanaugh should be confirmed immediately to the Supreme Court.
His Resume Surpasses Current SCOTUS Justices
Kavanaugh spent 12 years on the U.S. court of appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, graduated from Yale University, had a Supreme Court clerkship under Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, and held top posts under George W. Bush’s administration. He’s also taught law students at Yale, Harvard, and Georgetown.
His Resume Surpasses Other Picks on Trump’s Shortlist
Kavanaugh has written over 300 legal opinions and sent 41 of his law clerks to posts at the high court – more than any other competitor on Trump’s list of potential SCOTUS candidates. Ironically it’s with the exception of Merrick Garland that no one has sent more of their law clerks to work for justices of the Supreme Court than Kavanaugh has.
He has the American Bar Association’s Approval
Kavanaugh was awarded the American Bar Association’s highest rating, and while the ABA were among those calling for the FBI to investigate Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations, they did not rescind their support for him.
He’s a Solid Conservative Justice
If you like Neil Gorsuch, you’ll love Brett Kavanaugh, as he’s, even more, ideologically conservative. If confirmed, only one Justice on the Court would be more conservative, Clarence Thomas.
In conclusion; thanks to the Left, we’ve enjoyed the most chaotic SCOTUS confirmation process in recent history for the most qualified candidate in recent history.
Just wait until it’s time to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Something tells me when it comes to liberal hysteria, we ain’t seen nothing yet.
