  •  You think Roberts is "open-minded?" (none)
    Based on what?
    •  That's how they feel, (none)
      which is good enough for the US Senate also. That people support a candidate because they think, feel, hope he won't destroy basic freedoms is the worst of this hole sorry story.
    •  No that's not my point (none)
      I prefer originalist judges.  I want abortion legalized, but not by judicial fiat.  Same with same-sex marriage, same with pot decriminalization, etc.  So I never advocated for a judge who is so open minded as to not have formed any opinion on anything ever.  I dont want a judge who, to quote Lord Chief Justice Parker, "is not supposed to know anything about the facts of life until they have been presented in evidence and explained to him at least three times."

      But the people opposing originalist judges have been crying out for "open-mindness."  I was merely pointing out that apparently that does not extend to any issues that they actually care about.
