How would you like a Supreme Court and other Federal Courts to have their appointees selected by Robert Bork? Remember Robert Bork… the Supreme Court Nominee who was rejected by Congress and has been grousing about it ever since.
The following article will make your skin crawl:
YES, AMERICA, ROBERT BORK IS BACK
Many presidents leave their most enduring legacy to the nation in the Justices that they name to the Supreme Court and the federal judges that they put on the bench. So what inspired former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney to name former judge Robert Bork to co-chair his presidential campaign advisory committee on law, the Constitution and the judiciary?

I am in a state of utter shock. After the Delaware Republican Primary went for Christine O’Donnell and the Rasmussen Poll came out to show how far ahead Chris Coons would be (if the election were held today), a lot of us were feeling good about the possibility of a more limited Republican growth spurt in Congress.
Then Harry Reid made a stupid statement.
“I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate.”
That was bad enough. But Harry also said:
“Let me tell you about him: A graduate of Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School. A two-time national debate champion. He represents two-thirds of the state now, in an elected capacity. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen him or heard him speak, but he is a dynamic speaker. I don’t mean loud or long; he’s a communicator. So that’s how I feel about Delaware. I’ve always thought Chris Coons is going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I’m glad he’s running. I just think the world of him. He’s my pet.”
Of course this gives O’Donnell the chance to advertise with “Christine O’Donnell — NOT Harry Reid’s pet,” or so says Meredith Jessup in THE BLAZE.
I’m wondering what Harry is going to do to remedy this one.
