Roberts Nominated for Chief

--posted by Tony Garcia on 9/05/2005

I was having issues w/ my login for my blog...otherwise I would have posted this half an hour go.

Bush nominated John Roberts to be the Chief Justice. This changes only one thing...that there is not yet a replacement for O'Connor. Remember that her retirement was to be effective upon confirmation of her replacement.

Sandra, don't expect a confirmation of your replacement soon. Instead expcet a delay from the Democrats well into the coming Supreme Court term. I mean, what incentive do the Democrats have to confirm anyone? Until Roberts confirmation is complete Justice Stevens will be the acting Chief...and do you think the uber-liberals are happy about that? Hell, yeah.

With O'Connor still on the Court the Court has more of a liber (actually an uber-liberal) tilt. The balance of the Court is 4 Justices to the left, 2 to the right and 2 moderates both of whom have been tracking leftward lately. Do you think the uber-liberals are happy about that? Hell, yeah.

Expect many, many delays from the Dems on all future nominations during this term. The GOP needs to get a spine and stand up against the Dems on each delay. Bush needs to do a few recess appointments.
