John Roberts: Partisan Hack Wont Stop Rove Flak

Posted by Tim Tagaris

It doesn't take a genius to recognize today's "sudden" Supreme Court announcement was little more than a diversionary tactic by an embattled White House in the midst of its last stand. That's fine.

This is going to be a long process, and there are many questions to be answered about John Roberts fitness for the Supreme Court. After all, it was only five years ago John Roberts was working for Bush/Cheney 2000 in the Florida recount--for twenty years, Roberts has been more of a Republican political operative. And tonight, one political hack was sent forward to the U.S. Senate to cover for another political hack feeling heat from U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.

A lifetime appointment the highest court in the land deserves no less than a thorough examination of the potential jurist. It was only 2003, two years ago, when John Roberts was confirmed by a voice vote to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. His thin resume doesn't give us much to go on when measuring his fitness for the High Court. So, in the coming days, weeks, and possibly months, while everyone is thinking of questions that John Roberts' thin resume obliges him to answer in the Judiciary Committee, there are still a lot of questions that remain unanswered for Karl Rove; let's hope that no one forgets that.
