Judge Robert Bork Endorses Mitt Romney
Race42008.com ^ | December 15, 2007 | Jason Bonham

Posted on 12/15/2007 7:14:36 AM PST by BarnacleCenturion

Joining Romney for President, Judge Bork said, “Throughout my career, I have had the honor of serving under several Presidents and am proud to make today’s endorsement. No other candidate will do more to advance the conservative judicial movement than Governor Mitt Romney. He knows firsthand how the judicial branch can profoundly affect the future course of a state and a nation. I greatly admired his leadership in Massachusetts in the way that he responded to the activist court’s ruling legalizing same-sex ‘marriage.’ His leadership on the issue has served as a model to the nation on how to respect all of our citizens while respecting the rule of law at the same time.”

Judge Bork continued, “Our next President may be called upon to make more than one Supreme Court nomination, and Governor Romney is committed to nominating judges who take their oath of office seriously and respect the rule of law in our nation. I also support Governor Romney because of his character, his integrity and his stands on the major issues facing the United States.”

I am not sure what the effect of this will be, but it does make the case that Romney is the conservative choice for those who want to avoid Huckacide. It’s time to get over your misgivings of his flip flops and get on the train folks.

The primaries haven't even started. Also I'm not sure I want to hear "You knew what he was when you voted for him" 4 or 5 years down the road.

Romneys DSM-IV 'Judgment' in Action.


Ex-beau recalls murder, lost love [Romney's Tuttman's released murderer might be implicated in an additional nine murders of women]

"The man who lost his fiancee to Daniel T. Tavares Jr. believes the violent convict may be the serial killer
who took the lives of nine drug-involved prostitutes from the New Bedford area in the 1980s.

“He kept talking about them and saying, ‘I know that one.’ One was found buried in the yard,”
said Norman Sirois, who was engaged to marry Ann M. Tavares, 46, when she was stabbed
to death by her son on July 10, 1991. Sirois, 63, made his remarks yesterday after reading
accounts of how Tavares led state police to the remains of Gayle A. Botelho, 32, in 2000.

Botelho’s skeletal remains were unearthed on the grounds of 314 June St. in Fall River,
where Sirois said he rented an apartment with Ann Tavares, her killer son and his friend, Richard Pires, in the 1980s.

Botelho was last seen in October 1988 leaving her apartment, which was across the street.
In the past, investigators have said Botelho’s death was not linked to the prostitutes’ murders.

Sirois said the night Botelho went missing he came home from a party to find Daniel Tavares
staring out a window at a police cruiser outside the Prospect Street apartment where she lived.

“He says, ‘They’re looking for Gayle.’ I said, ‘Did you talk to the police?’ He said, ‘No.’ I never brought it up again.
How did he know they were looking for Gayle if he didn’t talk to the police?” asked Sirois,
who added that he did not know Botelho.

Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the Bristol district attorney, C. Samuel Sutter Jr., yesterday
declined to comment on Sirois’ comments.

“We are actively investigating all unsolved homicides from 1991 to 2006,” Miliote said. Paul F. Walsh Jr.,
who served as Bristol district attorney from 1991-2006, could not be reached for comment.

“I can’t prove it. It’s just so funny that everything stopped after he went to prison,” said Sirois,
who lived with Tavares for several years while he dated his mother. Sirois described
Tavares as a man who “lied through his teeth and” was always unemployed.

But regarding the Botelho case, “It’s my word against his,” he said."

How sad. Bork is a good man who is rarely wrong. This is one of those rare times.

My conscience will never allow me to vote for Romney. I do not trust him and I will not be party to handing him power.

Not just Judge Bork, but William F. Buckley Jr is also on board with Mitt.

Distinguished conservatives with good, clear, analytical minds have scrutinized Mitt and like what they see.

What is BKBA?

As I read everyone's comments around the net, I am more convinced than ever that a Republican cannot win because we are a party divided. Period! I think I am most shocked at the cheap shots at Huckabee from various corners. Huckabee is Bush with better speaking skills and charm. Yet the diehard Bush supporters hate Huckabee. Have they something against speaking skills?

Wow! He joins such notables as the founder of The Heritage Foundation, Paul Weyrich and the father of the pro-life movement in America and internationally, founding president of National Right to Life Committee and current president of the International Right to Life Federation Dr. John Willke. Also notable is the toughest sheriff in America, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio as well as a former executive director of the National Rifle Association as well as a member of its current board of directors. It is amazing to me that Mitt Romney has amassed the most notable conservative endorsements yet many conservatives can’t seem to get it that he is a conservative and worthy of their support. Wake up, people! It’s either Romney or Rudy and for me I’m supporting the conservative.

Gun Grabber Bork Supports Gun Grabber Mitt
Bork has denounced what he calls the "NRA view" of the Second Amendment, something he describes as the "belief that the constitution guarantees a right to Teflon-coated bullets." Instead, he has argued that the Second Amendment merely guarantees a right to participate in a government militia.

They see in Huckabee another Jimmy Carter debacle in the making--a fiscal liberal and foreign policy naif who wants to extort and spend taxpayer monies to remake America in his own intolerant Southern Baptist image.

And they don't want to repeat that horrible, expensive mistake.

Bork is not a good man and is wrong quite often. He knows the words but not the music. Yes he got crucified because he was a supposed conservative. That's about all he has going for him. Let me give you a for instance from another thread long ago...

"Bork is an authoritarian because he explicitly regards the Ninth Amendment as a meaningless nullity. The founding fathers had this to say:

Amendment IX of the Constitution of the United States

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Mr. Bork has this to say:

"There is almost no history that would indicate what the ninth amendment was intended to accomplish. But nothing about it suggests that it is a warrant for judges to create constitutional rights not mentioned in the Constitution. Ely, along with a great many other people, thinks that it is precisely such a warrant. Nothing could be clearer, however, than that, whatever the purpose the ninth amendment was intended to serve, the creation of a mandate to invent constitutional rights was not one of them. The language of the amendment itself contradicts that notion.... If the Founders envisioned such a role for the courts, they were remarkably adroit in avoiding saying so ... What, then, can the ninth amendment be taken to mean? One suggestion ... is that the people retained certain rights because they were guaranteed by the various state constitutions, statutes and common law ... This meaning is not only grammatically correct, it also fits the placement of the ninth amendment just before the tenth and after the eight substantive guarantees of rights ... The ninth amendment appears to serve a parallel function by guaranteeing that the rights of the people specified already in the state constitutions were not cast in doubt by the fact that only a limited set of rights was guaranteed by the federal charter."

Robert Bork, The Tempting of America: The Political Seduction of the Law, p183.

"Well, I don’t know what it means and if someone would tell me what it means I would be happy to use it, but I just don’t know what it means. It's as though you had a copy of the Constitution and there was an inkblot on it and you couldn't read what was under the inkblot. I don't think judges should make up what’s under the inkblot."

Robert Bork, speaking on the Ninth Amendment before the Senate Judiciary Committee, 1987.

Like I said, so far as I'm concerned, we can do without another insolent authoritarian on the Supreme Court, in particular one with such self-admittedly dim reading comprehension. 54 posted on 07/06/2005 8:03:13 PM PDT by AntiGuv (™) [ Post Reply | Private Reply | To 46 | View Replies | Report Abuse ]

To: TAdams8591 BTW, James Madison had this to say by contrast:

It has been objected also against a bill of rights, that, by enumerating particular exceptions to the grant of power, it would disparage those rights which were not placed in that enumeration; and it might follow by implication, that those rights which were not singled out, were intended to be assigned into the hands of the General Government, and were consequently insecure. This is one of the most plausible arguments I have ever heard against the admission of a bill of rights into this system; but, I conceive, that it may be guarded against. I have attempted it, as gentlemen may see by turning to the last clause of the fourth resolution.

James Madison, addressing the First Congress of the United States, 1789.

The 'inkblot' means precisely what it obviously means: that the Federal government has no powers beyond those explicitly and narrowly enumerated within Article One, Section Eight of the U.S. Constitution - and that all further rights are retained by the people.

So, Bork fails the basic reading comprehension test of constitutional interpretation - and conservatives don't do that. His failures are not limited to 9th Amendment jurisprudence and thoughtful conservatives should realize that they dodged a bullet when his confirmation failed.

“Bork is anti-RKBA and his judicial record leans to the jack-boot.”

Bork does not believe in an individual right to keep and bear arms.

He thinks the 2nd amendment is about the right to join a State militia!

Romney does not support the right to keep and bear arms - his time in Mass proves it.

It’s a red line for me, and many others.

My first choice is Duncan Hunter, followed by Fred. I will be on that train through the Idaho primary up until the nomination.

However, if it clearly comes down to Mitt or Rudy, I will vote for and support Mitt. If it comes down to Mitt or any of the democrats, I will clearly vote for and support Mitt.

More to convince me that Romney will win the nomination. I predict a Romney vs. Edwards race. Robot vs. what cbs is showing us in the video here:

http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2007/12/13/politics/fromtheroad/entry3617348.shtml

Too many people vote for the image, and the image they like is of cherry-cheeked youth. I don’t believe Romney will win in this micro-intellectual climate of ours, if Edwards is his opponent.

For that matter, I don’t believe Romney, period.

Nevertheless, if even Bork approves of him, I will have to hold my nose and vote for him next November. That is unless Obama or Clinton wins the nomination to oppose him. If they do, I can safely stay home with an intact conscience, because Romney will demolish them.

At this point, Ronald Reagan could resurrect, call an international press conference, put his arm around Mitt Romney and declare Romney to he the greatest Conservative since he himself was alive and kicking and Diogenesis and friends would tell us that Reagan was a liar and a RINO. Rush Limbaugh will be condemned as an "out-of-touch" RINO if he ever endorses Romney.

It doesn't matter. They have their opinion and no endorsement, no set of facts, no experience, nothing will ever persuade them otherwise. We can just post the mounting evidence that Romney is acceptably Conservative to these important Conservatives and let the nutters rant. This info wasn't meant for them anyway. The Romney haters are the Conservative answer to the Bush Derangement Syndrome types over at DU, the Daily Kos, the HuffPo, the MSM and so on.

You might as well include Ronald Reagan in the anti-RKBA "jack-booted thug gun grabber" category, too. He supported the Brady Amendment, after all.

So dismissive!

SO full of it.

You are blind because you don’t care to see.

Mitt is bad at picking judges. Look at the victims of Romneycide on this thread and get back to me.

Also, accepting the endorsement of Bork, a jackboot authoritarian who doesn’t think there’s an individual right to keep and bear arms in this great Republic, is also telling. As is Romneycare, and all the other liberal nanny state crap we’ve seen come from Mitt. He has to call his lawyer before bombing Iran.... but not to take your guns. I will not vote for that man.

He's certainly the thinking, rational conservative's choice.

He won't satisfy the shallow conservatives who think with their gut, who cannot see the incongruity of extolling Ronald Reagan (whose Second Amendment pronouncements were not uniformly pro-RKBA) and condemning Romney (whose Second Amendment pronouncements are more conservative than Reagan's).
