Bush and the Supremes!
People are worried about the make up of the Supreme Court. If who the president nominated mattered so much the current make up of the court would be 7-2.
A democratic president appointed only 2 of the current Justices. Clinton
nominated Breyer and Ginsburg. Rehnquist was nominated by Nixon
. Stevens was Ford
. O’Connor, Kennedy and Scalia were Uncle Ronnie
. Thomas and Souter were Bush I
nominees. So by liberal thinking, with an overwhelming right leaning majority, Roe v. Wade should already be overturned. This is an opinion that has stood the test of time. It's been on the books for over 31 years now!
George W. Bush never said that he would nominate a justice that would oppose abortion. He said he would nominate judges for the Supreme Court that would strictly uphold the Constitution of the United States. I understand this to mean, he would nominate a person who would not legislate from the bench. The Supreme Courts job is not to make new law but to administer the laws we already have on the books. At least that’s the way I understand it.
I think it’s premature to worry about any nominations that George W. Bush might make until after he makes them. I think it’s sort of like saying you don’t like peas before you ever even taste them.
