Isn’t it amazing how things change? The Democrats are going crazy over the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Gorsuch is completely qualified but they’re trying to block him just because they hate Trump for winning.
Back in 2006, Dianne Feinstein had a much more reasonable view on this subject.
Flashback: When Feinstein Said You Can’t Filibuster A SCOTUS Nominee Just Because You Disagree With Him
What happened to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)? She used to be rational when it came to Supreme Court nominations. In 2006, when Senate Democrats were mulling what to do with Judge Samuel Alito (now Justice Alito), the California Senator told Bob Schieffer, then-host of CBS’ Face The Nation, that a filibuster of Alito would be unlikely because you can’t just block a Supreme Court nominee just because you disagree with him or her…
Flash forward to 2017 and Feinstein is opposing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch because…she doesn’t like him. And she wants to get the GOP back for gumming up the works for Merrick Garland, Obama’s initial nominee to fill the vacancy left by Antonin Scalia.

If you think the Democrats are acting crazy now, wait until Trump gets to pick a second Supreme Court judge.
