Sept. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said he urged President George W. Bush today to delay nominating a replacement for retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Specter said the delay would give Congress and the rest of America more time to know John Roberts as chief justice. ``When we know a little more about Judge Roberts it's going to be easier with the next'' nomination, Specter said.
And then, Sen. Patrick Leahy the senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee announced Wednesday he will vote to confirm John Roberts for chief justice of the United States after leading lawmakers met with President Bush to discuss candidates for the other high court vacancy.
This is the calm before the storm. The donks will pass Roberts, because they have no chance of defeating him and the public would be furious if they tried. They will go after the next nominee under the pretense of keeping a balanced court. Where in the constitution does it say we have to have an equal amount of liberals and conservatives with a swing judge who bats from both sides of the box?
This is complete nonsense. As usual the donks try to change the rules when things are not going well for them in the game. If you can't win , cheat, it's the liberals' motto.
I hope Bush names someone soon and lets the battle begin. We will get to see the left in all its hideous reality. And wait, if Stevens leaves, as is rumored, the left will implode. May it come to pass!
