If Romney does become President, I expect he’ll be cautious about his choice, depending heavily on the political climate.
Interestingly, two of the three top possibilities are from Wisconsin.
Since the majority of his appointments as governor where liberal, why would he be different as prez (yea before you say , sure the Repubs in the senate would block liberals- ha ha & ha)
I’m glad to see Estrada mentioned. That would be a good choice.
Also Clement, he seems to be really top-notch.
And what about that woman we used to hear about, Janice Rogers Brown? Something like that. She’s not in the article, but I thought I saw her mentioned somewhere the other day, I think she’s on the bench somewhere still.
I just hope it is not Obama making these next few choices.
No other candidate will do more to advance the conservative judicial movement than Governor Mitt Romney Governor Romney is committed to nominating judges who take their oath of office seriously and respect the rule of law in our nation. -Judge Robert Bork in his 2008 endorsement of Mitt Romney
Romney has a record. Why should we ignore it?
His record shows he appoints leftist judges.
“Jeffrey Sutton, 51, joined a Cincinnati-based court after years in private practice and Ohio state government. Though long a favorite of conservatives, he wrote an opinion in June 2011 upholding the healthcare law that drew their disappointment.”
This one is automatically disqualified in my book!
Why couldn’t you name the candidates?
What is the process for appointing or electing judges in MA. The process within the state would impact his submissions I’d expect. Does the governor have free reign to appoint anyone at his will or is there some type nominating commission that submits names to him from which he must choose? Who approves the selections, the legislature or someone else?
Anyone have any info?
I see you brought out all the Romney haters on this thread.
Romney will give us "conservative" appointments who will "grow."
If you get my drift.
