President Picks Conservative for Supreme Court
Washington, DC Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio praised President Bush today for his selection of Judge John Roberts to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court. Roberts, a conservative who served in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administration, was nominated by the current President Bush to serve on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2001.
"We are optimistic that an apparent conservative will be replacing left-wing liberal Justice O'Connor," said Delgaudio. "The President has kept his word to the conservative electorate that put him into office to appoint an originalist who will not legislate from the bench but rather interpret and enforce the law.
"As long as the leftist legal elite in Washington D.C. do not poison his mind and corrupt his judicial philosophy, as has unfortunately happened to several Justices currently serving on the Court, those who want to protect America from judicial activism have almost certainly gained an ally, while losing an enemy
"Justice O'Connor's legacy on the Court on the other hand will be one of activism and inconsistency. Her votes on cases ranging from special rights for homosexuals to abortion often provided the swing vote necessary to jam the agenda of the radical left down the throat of the American people. Her inconsistent judicial philosophy on issues such as religious freedom and the display of the Ten Commandments, as it is displayed in the Supreme Court, left lower courts with a confusing set of opinions that seemed to be based on anything but the Constitution. Her liberalism can even be seen in the praise she has been showered with from far left U.S. Senators like Leahy, Kennedy, Boxer, and Specter since she announced her retirement. We hope that Judge Roberts sees Justice O'Connor as an example of how not to be a Supreme Court Justice.
"Public Advocate plans to stand by this nominee as he will be inevitably attacked by these radical Senators and the far-left special interest groups that see the Court as the only way to advance their political agenda because of their rejection by the American voters."
