    I still recall people on this blog and others telling me I was wrong.  That he is an okay person.  Bullshit!

    •  Everything is relative, I guess (0+ / 0-)

      You were going to get some POS in 2005, regardless

        was the errors made by many in thier assessment of who Roberts was and is.

        I urge you to demand better analysis from folks.

        We can debate how we handle what is being proposed, but first we have to be honest about what is being proposed.

        The folks who told us Roberts was "mainstream" were wrong. They should admit that.

        •  Fair enough (0+ / 0-)

          but it begs the question -- what is "mainstream?"

          And was the GOP going to nominate anybody "mainstream?"

          I ask these questions not really knowing the answers

            I think at the time, and indeed now, I've answered the question.

            If people disagree with my answer, let them explain their disagreement.

            You keep wanting to change the question or ask a different question.  I'm sure we can all have reasonable views on how to respond to a radical SCOTUS nomination.

            But first things first, let's call it a radical SCOTUS nomination.

            A lot of people,then Senator Obama included, did not want to do that.

            I submit that this was the wrong approach.

            Certainly PRESIDENT Obama is not endorsing that view now.
