    Just goes to show Democrats have lost all power they once had in the USA.

    I hope he will make a good chief justice especially since, considering his age, he will probably hold that position for a long time. I believe he will. Abortion rights supporters are not going to like him though.

    You seem to find a way to take a jab at democrats in every thread you post. Give it break, man. You have to have other opinions besides democrats are bad and George W. Bush is like a 'god'.

    I'm not sure what to think of him, he is a very bright guy, but he has kept us a bit in the dark about his politics.

    Not sure of the reason for all the "this is bad for the dems" comments. Democrats didn't really fight this guy all that much.

    Thats kind of what I was thinking. Half of the democrats in the senate even voted "for" his confirmation.

    You think they wanted to?

    They just want to be able to block the next one without looking like obstructionist.

    That doesn't really make me mad. Just sad and very scared for the well being of the country and the world.

    A Republican president appoints a moderate republican judge. Yep, the Democrats have lost control all right. :rolleyes:

    Hopefully he'll make a good judge, who does his best to uphold the constitution, and doesn't get influenced by the people that put him there.

    Its just funny how Ted Kennedy and Diane Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi had a huge press conference saying Roberts was a bad choice, calling him bad for the country, and saying they refuse to vote for him, and then he's confirmed anyways. :hilarious: Why does the media give them any attention whatsoever? They're so far left their own party ignores them (since most democrats went ahead and voted for him anyways)

    We will see, don't forget though that leftish judges are "activists" and right wing judges "stand for what they believe in"

    And both unfortunately interpret the Constitution in a way that supports their ideals and the ideals of their supporters, instead of interpreting it the way they honestly think it should be.

    And that's a good thing. Don't forget that he does not represent the American people. It'd be a dark day when we have a Supreme Court responsible to the American public.

    That's not why people want to know his politics. If he has, say, some sort of bias on certain issues that might cloud his work as a jurist, then the American people (more specifically, the Senate) should now. It's a moot point though.

    Assuming he lives up to his conservative (judicial, not political) billing, then I'm pretty happy he's on the Court. I'm not entirely supportive of him being Chief Justice (I was hoping for Kennedy ;)), but we could have done worse. As I'm anticipating Bush will do with is second choice, as I'd guess he'll pick an ideologue like a Scalia or Thomas (though Scalia, at least, has a coherent and logical conservative strain that I appreciate and even agree with from time to time).
