When Donald Trump made his Supreme Court appointments, every one of them faced smear campaigns from Democrats, liberals, and the media.
According to Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), that will not be the case for Biden’s nominee.
Cotton believes Biden’s nominee will be judged on merits and case history, not slanderous rumors.
No Smear Campaigns
On Biden’s nominee, Cotton, who is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, stated that the “grotesque smear campaigns” that took place against conservative justices will not happen here.
He stated, “I suspect we’ll all keep an open mind. We will review the nominee on her merits.
“I can’t say that I’ve got wild expectations that Joe Biden is going to nominate someone who I think I can support or many Republicans can support, because I’ve seen dozens of his nominees to the lower courts, and they’ve almost, to a person, been left-wing ideologues who think judges should make the law, rather than apply and uphold the Constitution and the laws as they are passed.
“I can say one thing that I won’t do, and I doubt any Republican will do, is engage in the kind of grotesque smear campaigns against the character of fine men like Clarence Thomas, stories we saw like what happened with Brett Kavanaugh two years ago.
“We’ll give a thorough vetting into any nominee’s legal philosophies, as well as their career, and their character and their temperament.
“But we’re not going to do what Democrats do, which is simply make up smears against a nominee. And I hope that never happens again.”
I agree with Cotton on that front, but I have already been looking into Childs and one ruling, in particular, is concerning, especially considering the Democrat push on radical voting rights legislation.
In 2020, Childs ruled to block the requirement for an absentee ballot to be witnessed for it to qualify.
Her injunction was eventually overturned, showing that she is more than willing to look past the rule of law and invoke ideology when offering her opinion.
That one ruling would be enough for me to disqualify her from consideration.
I suspect that will not be the case for most Republicans, yet, if she votes in favor of radical voting legislation if it comes before the Supreme Court, every one of them will express outrage, even though they voted to support her nomination.
