Mark Levin endorsed him, too, based on Hatch’s solid advocacy of conservative judges.
Or so he says.
People have been forgetting how much damage Obama can do with four more years to appoint Judges.
A good example of why RINOs are running the party.
“As a Republican coming from Utah, I stated many times on the campaign trail that I planned to come to Washington to fight Ted Kennedy,” Hatch said.
“When I came to Washington, I hadn’t the slightest idea that I would eventually have a strong working relationship with, and love for the man that I came to fight,” Hatch added. “If you have told me that he would have become one of my closest friends in the world I probably would have suggested that you need professional help
But that’s exactly what happened.”
His seniority is an issue as well. He’s a powerful Senator - - best not to lose him yet.
“Mark Levin endorsed him, too, based on Hatchs solid advocacy of conservative judges.”
Hatch voted for the nominations of David Souter, Stephen Breyer, and Ruth Bader Ginsberg to the Supreme Court. He also strongly supported George W. Bush’s nomination of Harriet Miers to the court (later withdrawn). Lest we forget it was Harry Reid who recommended to George Bush he nominate Ms. Miers to the Court. To his credit Hatch did vote against Kagan and Sotamayor.
His record does not suggest over time Mr. Hatch’s advocacy of conservative judges is “solid”. Hatch is an entrenched member of the Republican establishment and it appears the establishment has decided to do what it must to support Mr. Hatch’s reelection including calling in favors from conservative leaders and commentators.
Which begs the question, what do they know that we don't.
Are they afraid Grahamnasty will take take the Judiciary Chairmanship should he loose?
Or is Orin like his buddy "Teddy" and wants to be their until he is granted a "State" Funeral and we do not know if their are health issues. Personally their is way more to life, it is a shame their addiction to power doesn't allow them to see when it is time to go....
