Robert's Nomination Hearings:
I've been watching the Robert's hearings off and on today and you know fellow lib's?? I think that this guy is going to sail though. I do disapprove of A LOT of his opinions but he seems a lot more moderate then some other nominees. Robert's did say that the Constitution does guarantee a right to privacy so hopefully that means he will not push to over turn Roe.
Besides, I honestly agree with the policy of not saying exactly what they believe on an issue so that it does not bias any future rulings. Justice Ginsberg took this road and was still confirmed and I feel that liberals/democrats should allow Roberts this leeway so that we do not look like hypocrites and a$$holes. Besides, at some point in the future we will have a nominee who we will not want to have express his/her personal opinions so as not to bias their rulings either.
Roberts seems like a smart guy who understands the basic rights of the Constitution and that a Supreme Court Justice should not let their personal, political beliefs bias their rulings.
We have to approve someone and as I've said before, I guess I'd rather have Robert's as the Chief Justice then a Janice Rogers Brown or Priscilla Owens.
And i'm out.
