There’s nothing like snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Reading the commentary from pro-lifers and Catholics on various blogs about the nomination of John Roberts to the Supreme Court, I’ve noticed a distinct tone from one group that wants to call this a betrayal by Bush. Never mind that we know very little about Roberts so far and what little we do know is almost all positive.
No, we must assume that because Roberts isn’t president of his local pro-life group and has not written dozens of op-eds against abortion and has not unconstitutionally legislated from the bench, then he must be a liberal pro-abort disguised as a conservatrive and that Bush is once again selling out pro-lifers.
But have any of these people stopped to consider that if Bush had nominated a firebrand pro-lifer like these people want that there would be no way in Hell for him to be confirmed by the Senate?
