Can it be? John Kerry sent out a letter saying he would vote against Roberts for Chief Justice.
I will vote against this vitally important nomination.Senator Kerry, what the hell does his views, opinions and philosophy have to do with the law? I want to know what his qualifications are and how he approaches the job. Does he understand english sufficiently enough to accurately interpret the constitution. Perhaps we would be better off putting an english language scholar on the court to advise the rest of the court on what was the meaning of the words.
Win or lose on this vote, it is essential that we act on our deepest convictions. And I refuse to vote for a Supreme Court nominee who came before the Senate intent on demonstrating his ability to deftly deflect legitimate questions about his views, opinions and philosophy.
John Roberts owed the American people far more than that.Thank god we will have someone who can set their personal opinions aside and decide on the law.
If he is confirmed - and he may well be - the Roberts Court will shape the course of constitutional law for decades to come. It will decide dozens of cases that will define the depth and breadth of freedom in America - our commitment to civil rights, our dedication to civil liberties, our devotion to privacy and a woman's right to choose.
With that much at stake, Judge Roberts needed to show us where his heart is.Here we go again, Liberals concerned with feeling rather than law or what might work. The unintended consequences of well intentioned liberals has torn apart the black family over the last 40 years. The great experiment was a failure yet you still hear liberals talk about the poor as if they have succeeded in helping the poor. They need to come off their high horse and eat a slice of humble pie. Their good intentions have been disastrous.
"We care" so our ideas must be best. "We mean well" so our ideas couldn't have destroyed families and caused an entire new class of dependent poor in the USA.
Wake up John! The US people shouldn't have to tolerate bleeding heart judges, we should demand that our judges know the law and administer that law fairly.
Instead he recited case law and said little about what he really thought. He needed to engage the Senate Judiciary Committee and the American people in a genuine conversation. He failed that test. And, while I recognize that other members of the Senate will legitimately make a different choice, I will vote "NO" on the Roberts nomination..He failed to be touchy feely with the Senate and emphasized case law instead. All I can say is thank god you lost the election. We don't need more touchy feely.
You wasted bandwidth to let people know that you would vote no? Do you think we are stupid? We all knew your politics would supersede common sense, you didn't have to tell us.
I'm surprised that this wasn't a message saying you would vote for him.... ....before you actually voted against him.
