More evidence that George W. Bush is different than his father. Thank you President Bush for selecting Judge Roberts, someone who actually believes in the Constitution as it was written. I know for myself if I ever saw a living Constitution I would get out my Holy Water and dowse it generously. So it will be good to have another pro-Constitution judge especially since this also means a pro-life judge. The fact that his wife Jane has served as executive vice president of Feminists for Life is also a good sign.
That the President didn’t bow to political correctness and think that he had to replace a women with a women is amazing in this day in age. Not that there weren’t some good women on the short list, but it looks like W was playing rope-a-dope with us today with all the talk about Edith Clement being the pick. That we were soon to have a potential Ms. Souter.
Like I quipped before in before in Cacciaguida’s comment box. "You can’t have your court and Edith too."
Anyway more details over at Catholics in the Public Square and of course Southern Appeal.
Father Pavone seems to approve of Roberts:
The media is absolutely a joke. Gonzalez then Clement…
Why even turn on the TV anymore?
Being an Aussie, I’m a bit out of this one, but you deserve a spanking for the awful pun…!
My enthusiasm for the possibilities in the pro-life arena is tempered only slightly by Judge Roberts’ evident record on government in business and environment. We must continue to ask God to bless us with courageous and faithful leaders in all three branches of our government.
I’m not a big fan of Bush (I’m against the war) but I’m very pleased with this.
