1 week later, MittRomney.com still recommends judicial activist John Roberts
MittRomney.com ^

Posted on 07/05/2012 4:07:31 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

As president, Mitt will nominate judges in the mold of Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito. These justices hold dear what the great Chief Justice John Marshall called “the basis on which the whole American fabric has been erected”: a written Constitution, with real and determinate meaning. The judges that Mitt nominates will exhibit a genuine appreciation for the text, structure, and history of our Constitution and interpret the Constitution and the laws as they are written. And his nominees will possess a demonstrated record of adherence to these core principles.

Good move, for he needs proven people in positions of power who can lead on his side just in case he wins in November.

The more time marches on the more I am convinced that Romney is better off just keeping his mouth shut and sliding into the Oval Office in November.

He still backs Romneycare. Roberts must be his hero.

I don’t know when he said that, but today or yesterday he said entirely the opposite.

This is an old rehash designed for the same tired old motive.

Electing Obama.

Hope you enjoy 4 years of Obama.

Why not just look at judges he appointed as governor?

“Just wait till you see what he does once he has the official nomination.”

What he will do is underscore just how empty the GOP really is. Looooong learning curve here, and for sentimental reasons people are unwilling to cut loose. He will go hasten the departure though, so that is not entirely a bad thing.

Both parties are holes in our bucket.

Next year, look for even more money (debt) to your local governments to keep more eyes and ears on you all for the next wave of officious robberies.

You know dam well admitting that would require the Romney haters to be intellectually honest and consistent. It's not in them any more than it is in any liberal.

Hatred knows no reason, sees no truth, brooks no dissension. It is blind emotion released out of fear with the intent to destroy. It is never uplifting, never affirmative, and never, ever rational.

They decry anyone who dares confront them with the truth, any vote for a third party candidate or refuses to vote in a pique of self-righteousness is a tacit vote for Obama.

Maybe it would help if you could take the time to tell folks all of the positive things about Mitt Romney that you find so appealing.

I don't think Roberts was bribed or threatened. I think Roberts is a liberal, just like Romney. That's why Romney liked him then and that's why Romney likes him now. And, that's why Romney would appoint judges like Roberts.

But, you know what? It doesn't matter because Romney isn't going to be appointing anyone to anything because Romney isn't going to be holding any more public offices.

Summary: Mitt Romney’s record as Governor does not indicate a commitment to a conservative judicial philosophy.

I have never witnessed a person so in love with a candidate ever! You are obsessed with Romney. Is it the hair? His liberalism? His handomeness?? You are one of the few who literally loves Romney sorta the same way as the Obama fans loved their crush on Obama. You do know he is married, right???

-—”I don’t know when he said that, but today or yesterday he said entirely the opposite.”

It’s on the Mitt Romney website. Did you look?

It’s unfortunate. Clearly that was from before the Obamacare SC ruling, but Mittens should strike Roberts’ name from the list.

I would monitor the Romney site to see if they scrub it out like a bad stain. If the Romney campaign does remove Roberts’ name, that’s a good sign.

Agree with you. Listen everybody, it is OUR job to ride Romney's behind and TELL HIM when he fails to do the bidding of We The People. He wants to win, and he knows We the people can make that happen. Get on Facebook, and leave messages for Romney about traitor Roberts and Romney's web site. Don't know if Romney and/or his staff realize what's on the website, or if they've gotten the message from We the People to UPDATE his website and remove traitor Roberts’ name.

Get on Facebook and put your displesure to good use...do something about it and start leaving messages for Romney..REMOVE TRAITOR ROBERTS’ NAME FROM ROMNEY'S WEBSITE!
Let's get this done.

John Roberts, Don Scherer, Richard Lazarus
Martha's Vineyard, 1980's

Wonder how the climate is on Malta this time of year?

http://www.cile.edu/malta2012final2sm.pdf

Chief Justice Roberts and Professor Richard Lazarus will teach United States Supreme Court in Historical Perspective for one credit.

Anyone know who all might have accompanied the Chief Justice on his Malta vacation gig? Any pics of the nuclear family extant?

Why should I? It obviously would serve no purpose where you and your fellow Romney-haters are concerned.

You are the epitome of the person who cuts of his nose to spite his face. You are the cowboy stranded in the heart of "injun" territory who has determined to walk out because the only horse available is ugly and you would feel embarrassed to be seen on it.

I can tell you the single most important positive thing about Romney I find so appealing, HE'S NOT BARACK OBAMA. HE WILL NOT GO OUT OF HIS WAY TO DESTROY OUR NATION.

Sorry for the all caps, but I like to provide extra help for the rationally impaired.

Altura was a hardcore Bush bot when that dumbo was in office. Methinks he/she works for the RNC - hence the dogmatic adulation of whomever the GOP nominates.

Amazing.

ABOers who vote for Romney with their eyes wide open, are going to have swift, painful buyers remorse if the bastard wins, especially if he wins on a "popular mandate" landslide.
