What struck me is that none of the objections they raise really deal with his philosophy and whether he's a competent jurist in terms of the law and Constitution.  They simply note the reality that with a Constitutional originalist on the bench, a lot of things the left has taken for granted will need to be decided in legislatures and executive offices instead of in the courts. 

In my view, it's a great argument for Kavanaugh's confirmation.  

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

The radical left has a resist movement started in an attempt to end Kavanaugh's bid to be on the high court. But they already passed up on the easiest way to stop him. In November 2016 when they went to the polls, they were absolutely certain there was no way Hillary Clinton could lose to Donald Trump. So by the tens of thousands, they voted their heart--for Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate. What harm could be done? 

As it turned out, had the Stein voters all voted for Clinton in WI, MI and PA, Clinton would have won the election, and Trump, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh would have been stopped.

It sounds like the left's version of the anti-pragmatic right, who voted for someone other than Trump, knowing that nobody but Trump could defeat Clinton.  It's only God's mercy that this exercise in futility didn't give us Hillary Clinton.  Trump is pretty hard to stomach, but his actions are reversing much of the leftward lurch of the Obama years.  Politics is a nasty chess game.  But the idea is to take the long range tactical maneuver which will best checkmate your opponent.

Good description. I have voted for people (in Canada) who I personally can't stand, but it is the reality of our system. It isn't pretty, but it beats living in a dictatorship with no vote at all. (Admittedly, it sometimes seems like a dictatorship with a voting feature, but that is another subject...)
