That being said, this entire "conservative" vs "liberal" justice debate is ridiculous. The entire premise behind "judging" something is that you that you haven't already made your decision. It comes down to the fact that we aren't hoping for a partisan leader, or even a politician, but instead an unbiased official who will interpret the laws.
Under that banner, people need to understand that you will disagree with some of the decisions. If they never did rule controversially, it would simply mean that the country was remaining stagnate. And even though that is what some conservatives want, we cannot have a country in which laws never change. Politicians make mistakes and it is the duty of the court to correct them.
Conservatives can't decry liberal activism and then press for a judge who will "help repeal Roe v Wade." Do I personally wish that would happen? Certainly, but am I pushing for a judge who will do that? No, because that's legislating in its own right. If the Court got together and by its own devices chose to do so, than so be it.
Now, to get back on topic. DEMOCRATS ARE COMPLETELY OPEN ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEY ARE CURRENTLY DECIDING ON THE MOST POLITICALLY EFFECTIVE POSITION ON IRAQ. Which by default, means that all their anti-American, anti-troops and anti-democratic actions in the past two years weren't done for principle but for political gain. And, like all greedy people, are subject to change on a dime. This attitude of course, is reflected in today's pervasive fear of a conservative justice, due to the belief that everyone is as corrupt as they are.
I'm not saying Republicans are faultless, because surely they are not, but I doubt they'd even stoop this low. If they were though, I'm fairly certain they wouldn't publicize the fact that despite holding a strong position in the war on terror, they are getting together to concoct an entirely new one, just for kicks.
Well, as the saying goes: another day, another instance of liberalism proving itself to be synonymous with hypocritical, finger-in-the-wind politics.
