    Bush Picks Winners...

    Stardate 4272.5
    WASHINGTON - President Bush on Tuesday chose federal appeals court judge John G. Roberts Jr. to be the 109th justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and Bush’s first nominee for the high court. The president selected a rock-solid conservative whose nomination could trigger a tumultuous battle over the direction of the nation’s highest court.

    “One of the most consequential decisions a president makes is his appointment of a justice to the Supreme Court,” Bush said. “He's placing in human hands the power and majesty of the law.”

    Bush said the position called for “a person who will faithfully apply the Constitution.”

    Bush praised “his intellect, his sound judgment and his personal decency.”

    Wow. Coming from a guy who's own "sound judgement" in many matters is somewhat questionable... Heh. Good luck to the guy anyhow.

    I understand he is a hard line conservative fellow, so I imagine there will be quite a debate in Senate before he is confirmed. He has some, shall we say, hard stances on women''s rights to privacy and abortion, as well as environmental protection.

    I might add to this that this seems to be a great distraction from the ROVE scandal that is lighting up the news columns at present.

    All opinions shared on this site are strictly my own. Some people may disagree and that is fine, but rude comments or overzealous debate will be curtailed. I enjoy civil discourse, and encourage independent thought. I oppose George W. Bush and his Wars based on lies.
