Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Alito Appointed

President Bush appointed Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court this morning. Everything I hear about him is good. He has been on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals for 15 years. He is being compared to Scalia in ideology. He sounds like a great appointment. Much, much better than Miers.
Now the confirmation battle begins. I hope those senators who supported Alito back in 1990 will do so again (he was unanimously confirmed by a voice vote). I specifically want to ask Senator Warner to support this great candidate and stand with our party to prevent a filibuster.

    W. may have saved some face with conservatives here. I hope Mr. Alito is given a fair chance to voice his views. I am tired of liberals hammering on one issue...get over it! You get a Kennedy and Ginsburg we get a Scalia and Alito!

    I think this is the only thing keeping conservatives backing Bush.
    Even this might not be enough if they can't cut the budget.
    I agree with you 100% that the libs have no problem with a judge who has personal beliefs FOR abortion, but no one who is against it is allowed to be on the court.
