The Majority Leader Goes After the Chief Justice
“Roberts didn’t tell us the truth. At least Alito told us who he was,” Reid said, referring to Samuel Alito, the second Supreme Court justice nominated by President George W. Bush. “But we’re stuck with those two young men, and we’ll try to change by having some moderates in the federal courts system as time goes on — I think that will happen.”
Harry Reid wasn’t tricked by C.J. Roberts about anything, he voted against Roberts’ confirmation.
This, along with Bawny Fwank’s recent attack on Justice Scalia, are the Democrats’ way of laying a foundation to confirm judges who are far to the left of Justice Ginsburg.
The “dire situation” on the Supreme Court will no doubt lead to (more) rumbles about denying Republicans the use of the filibuster.
