Joe Biden's "Buzzy Ginsburg Rule"

FP - Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice began this week, and amid the grilling — and attempts to smear him — came an ad that reminded everyone about the “Ginsburg Rule,” which is yet another thing the left would like people to forget now that it’s not convenient for them. 

Democrats are attacking Judge Neil Gorsuch because he won’t promise to support their political agenda,” the ad started off. The ad pointed to the 1993 confirmation hearings of now-Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in which she declined to answer questions from Senators in over 70 instances. The Judicial Crisis Network released a video outing the left’s hypocrisy on this rule, which you can see below:


When the Democrats were aghast by Republican refusal to hold hearings for then-President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, Judicial Crisis Network put out another ad featuring, you guessed it, Joe Biden. 

The video ad was titled: “To confirm or not to confirm: Democrats vs. Joe Biden.” It featured the senator making the GOP’s case.
