Maria Shriver and her Mother are involved with FFL (especially Eunice Shriver), but it doesn't mean, they or their husbands are conservative.

*GASP*

The same Senator Danforth critical of the religious right and Bush and procedures of the Bush administration in the WOT was Thomas' mentor? Clearly he's overdue to "grow" as a Justice any day now.

I'm just no impressed by the weak arguments the detractor's have raised thus far.

What does conservative contrarian Howard Phillips say about Judge Roberts? Phillips was a rare bird: he detected the liberalism of both Sandra Day O'Connor and David Souter when hardly anyone else wanted to think that these two Republican appointees could be liberal.

There are other ways to overturn Roe.

Unfortunately, SCOTUS likes to bind itself to precedent, no matter how flawed those precedents might be. Which means they will eviscerate Roe without ever actually overturning it, IMO.

You're right. I hate that. For some folks, no matter who Bush nominates will be the wrong choice. Roberts, so far, sounds okay to me. We'll have to wait and see but I'm not going to bash the guy.

Why does NCJW (Rabid left wing group) oppose John Roberts' nomination?

I don't know. Why did the rabid left wing groups oppose Souter? Because he was nominated by a Republican. It's the only reason they recognize.
