The nomination of Samuel Alito Jr. to the Supreme Court raises a lot of questions about the judge's attitudes toward federalism, privacy and civil rights.
Damn, then why did the Senate vote for him previously ........... 99-0?

"Disheartening" to the New York Times
liberals! Music to my ears! The rest of their editorial is the usual talking points about what a presumed radical Samuel Alito is. I hope they keep it up. Its fun to watch the Left tear its hair out over such a nice guy. It tickles me pink to see them argue Bush should have nominated a "moderate." Did Clinton appoint one as President? Of course not! Who won the election? With these liberals, their hysteria is a wonderful opportunity to put them on the defensive and underscore the reality they lost last year. They have no right to dictate to Republicans who gets to sit on the courts. Laura Ingraham could tell them its time to shut up and hold your peace.

"The nominee should be given a serious hearing."
There we go, that's the NY Times endorsement right there.
I forget ... did this sentence get published in the Editorial for Harriet?

(Blissful Marriage: A result of a worldly husband's transformation into the Word's wife.)
From the NY Times op-ed:
"The need for a close and careful review of Judge Alito's record is all the more crucial because he will be replacing Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who has been the swing vote of moderation on so many issues."
One paragraph later:
"Judge Alito was the sole judge on his court who took the extreme position that all of Pennsylvania's limitations on abortion were constitutional, including the outrageous requirement that a woman show that she had notified her spouse."
According to today's John Podhoretz column, Alito based that decision on the opinions of one Sandra Day O'Connor. Does the NY Times even employ any fact checkers anymore?

Thw NYT has simply become a parody of itself.
"... his apparent hostility to abortion"
What a choice of words. Oh, yeah, and it's outrageous that a woman has to notify her husband before trying to murder his unborn kid.
Tremendous choice, Mr. President!
[But it has already answered one big question about President Bush. Anyone wondering whether the almost endless setbacks and embarrassments the White House has suffered over the last year would cause Mr. Bush to fix his style of governing should realize that the answer is: no.
Cannot help but wonder, that after Alito's confirmation to the 'Bench'. . .what then do these Lefties have in mind for Bush. . .
What is next in their playbook of political scandals from which these 'embarassing attacks' are calculated, orchestrated and generated. . .designed as they are to bring down President Bush and his second term, to a level of damning irrelevancy. . .
I wonder if any of the good Leftists at the 'NYTimes' has read that far. . .

"The concerns about this particular nominee go beyond his apparent hostility to abortion.."
Can you believe that statement!! Do these hateful, rats realize what they say half the time..."his apparent holtility to abortion.." how about their blatant hostility toward an unborn child?! They should just keep on talking..it's worth the entertainment factor.
This editorial staff would have written scathing broadsides against Gen. Washington, Alex Hamilton, Patrick Henry, John Adams, et al.
They do serve a useful puropose though: just think and do the exact opposite of what they say and you will always be right.

(The stone age didn't end because they ran out of stones.)
so, in the future let's hypothetically say dems regain control of the white house at some point... further let's hypothetically say scalia is mortal... are the dems going to be as concerned as they are now about replacing justices with like minded justices?
if so why not just write it into law: the court is comprised of two lefty libs, two righty tighties, two leftward leaning centrists, two rightward leaning centrists, and one wild card.
now, how in the world do we agree on how to label candidates...?
rediculous... the courts are 50-75% of the reason for winning the white house. duh. bush certainly wasn't re-elected for his fiscal constraint, or for his veto pen usage, or for his smaller-government agenda. geez, get with the program demDUms.

This is actually more measured from the Times than I expected.

Okay, this has always frosted me. Since when did the doctrine of replacing a "moderate" with a moderate become a dictate? Only in a liberals mind! You mean to tell me that if Rehnquist had died during the Clinton Administration that the NYSlimes would be calling on Clinton to replace that position with a conservative??
Once again, more disingenousness and sheer hypocrisy from the old gray whore.

LOL!!The Old Grey Lady can't stand it because she can't 'influence' the President, even though she's been trying hard with all her doom and gloom reporting about him this last year.
The MSM will NEVER learn that this President doesn't govern by poll like his predecessor did.

I'd be willing to bet the boneheads at the NY Slimes NEVER EVER EVER criticized Bill Clintoon for nominating TWO LIBERALS to the SCOTUS.
Can you imagine all the libs reading this editorial this morning and crying into their coffee?
My sister is a committed NY leftist, and never fails to read the Times. She always has a rough time during family gatherings - she gets the Times every morning and the rest of us sit and read the NY Post.
This kills her. We are so uncouth.

"to pander to his right wing"
We ELECTED him to "pander" to us. We, the majority of voters in the last election voted for him because he said he would do what we wanted, that he would steer the country in the direciton we approved of. This is what we wanted; this is what we voted for. If this is pandering- bring it on!

The propaganda effort is failing. No one thinks there have been endless setbacks and embarassment.
These conditions have prevailed at the OGW but not at the White House.

Judge Alito was the sole judge on his court who took the extreme position that all of Pennsylvania's limitations on abortion were constitutional, including the outrageous requirement that a woman show that she had notified her spouse.
What is "outrageous" about that?
Presumably, the conception of a child within a marriage is a joint activity and the husband should have some rights in any decision to pervert the outcome.

As president, he has been cramped by the same habit. The solution to almost every problem seems to be either to rely on a close personal associate or to pander to his right wing.
Wished he had use some of that pandering when it came to the open borders--education bill--CFR--Medicare Drugs --etc
