Shocking! Alito Opposes Abortion
Let's think a little for a moment: the party that (for the most part) opposes the killing of the unborn controls the White House and Capitol Hill. Should we be surprised that the President's nominee to the Supreme Court would also oppose abortion? If we want to talk about precedents then Judge Alito's stance on abortion should not prevent him from getting onto the court. Both Justices Breyer and Ginsberg both support abortion rights. They both easily passed the GOP-controlled Senate. But the Left now has their excuse to spend all the money they've saved up for a Supreme Court fight.
Conservatives should love Alito even more with the release of his job application from the 1980s:
"I believe very strongly in limited government, federalism, free enterprise, the supremacy of the elected branches of government, the need for a strong defense and effective law enforcement, and the legitimacy of a government role in protecting traditional values," he wrote.
Alito is the nominee many conservatives really wanted to see. He grew up with the rise of the conservative movement and has been influenced by the right people (Buckley, Goldwater, Reagan, etc.). He's a product of the modern conservative movement. del.icio.us | Digg it | Furl | reddit | Spurl | Yahoo MyWeb
