If you want to know the foundation for the coming objections to John Roberts' confirmation to the Supreme Court, go to the folks who have Democrat members on the Judiciary Committee in their pocket: The People for the American Way, or PFAW.
If anything makes me think that President Bush's selection of John Roberts for the Supreme Court is a good idea, the PFAW squeal against Roberts in my mind is nothing short of a high recommendation. In nearly every one of the "disturbing" and "controversial" issues he has been involved in, I agree with his position.
PFAW also points out that some of Robert's so-called "controversial" rulings were overturned by five to four votes in the Supreme Court. With Roberts on the big bench, we can only imagine those rulings would be upheld by five to four.
And I was pleased to learn that he worked in the Reagan Administration, so you know he understands the difference between a conservative in principle and a conservative in public.
Later I read this post on the ABC News site. It doesn't have the vitriol of the PFAW profile, but aside from a few positive opening paragraphs it struck me as being nothing short of a distillation of the PFAW writeup, nearly matching the identical order of the list of so-called "controversial" issues.
The liberal left has long enjoyed a media advantage whereby their accomplices in the "mainstream" media willingly parrot talking points handed them by the left.
But here at Mike's America I'm declaring a left wing parrot free zone!
