John Roberts – Stealth Conservative

Ann Coulter writes again this week about the nomination of John Roberts, starting her column with some astounding quotes.

— “He’s a scholarly man; he has a good education; he has been recommended by legal authorities; he has a good record in lower courts.” — President Bush

— “This decision had the advantage of being acceptable to conservatives, plus Democrats won’t be able to attack him. There is nothing to grab a hold of, to whack him on.” — An administration official

— “Virtually every conservative who knows him trusts him and thinks he’s a competent guy.” — Newt Gingrich

— “(He) has voiced opposition to many forms of abortion. He dislikes affirmative-action programs, contending that they amount to reverse discrimination. Also, he has vigorously defended … the Lord’s Prayer in its public schools.” — Los Angeles Times

He is David Hackett Souter, only the most recent reason Republican presidents — especially Republican presidents named “Bush” — have lost the right to say “Trust me” when it comes to Supreme Court nominations.

A revealing set of quotes that should give any conservative pause.
