A thought about judicial appointments

The argument goes like this:  Since Trump isn't a real conservative, his judicial appointments will disappoint you if you are a conservative and vote for him.

To answer that one, look at Reagan's appointments.  He had three, I believe, and only one of them was a staunch conservative.  Sure, he got forced into Anthony Kennedy, but he also selected Sandra Day O'Connor.  Not exactly a staunch conservative.  He had no excuses with that one, either.  The GOP controlled the Senate then, so nothing was in the way, unless he let it be.

Supposedly, Cruz will do better than Trump.  But if he doesn't get a friendly Senate, he will get his candidates Borked, too.
