When was the last time Leaky voted against an activist liberal judge?
Geeez. Speaking of the devil.
Activist means upholding the principles of the Constitution.
Damn that SCOTUS for not finding the interstate commerce clause to be sufficient Constitutional grounding on this matter.
The 'emanations of the penumbra' of the Constitution have spoken.
The more the democrats whine about Roberts, the more I like him!
Up is down.
I love how the Dems try to hi-jack words and completely flip their meaning. Why can't Dems be honest about who they are and what their agenda is?
"By activist, of course, I mean those who would reverse all of the insane decisions foisted on the nation by left-wing judges. Any judicial activism on the part of liberals is a desirable and necessary part of the living document Constitution, whereas any conservative interpretation of laws is a usurpation of the highest order and is anathema to the essential juridical principle of stare decisis," Leahy went on to say.
/what he's really thinking
I've been noticing that the left has stolen the words we use to describe judges. Just proves the left hasn't had a novel idea in decades.
Leaky Leahy at it again. Liberalism truly is a mental disease.....and abortion is their sacrament.
By "activist" he means anyone who would interpret the Consitution as it was intended.
I guess Leaky old Pat forgot that there's something called the Constitution that keeps Congress from doing whatever it wants.
These people are SO predictable. We pretty much know in advance who will vote against Roberts: Leahy, Kennedy, Kerry, Reed (RI,) Durbin, Boxer, Feinstein, Biden, the 2 old fossils from Hawaii, Harkin, Sarbanes, Mikulski, Levin, Dayton, Murray, Kohl... and perhaps a few others from the left wing fringe.
I urge Judge Roberts to support every section of the Constitution which endorse abortion
Sounds like the DNC has finalized its talking points on the Roberts nomination. Now the Democrats are advocating the status quo, but if it wasn't for judicial activists, Roe v. Wade wouldn't have been decided as it was. They have zero concern for the rule of law; politics over rides everything-right from the teachings of Marx.
