Recently, I was reminded by Sean Hanitty that 7 of the 9 Supreme Court Justices were picked by Republicans.
Think of the implications of that statistic!
There are many possibilities for this poor record: "stealth" nominees (the views are concealed); misrepresentation; even changed of views by the Justices themselves.
However, to cut the fat and move straight to the quick: where these past nominees ever asked by those who nominated them the crucial questions? It is possible that all those Justices (such as O'Conner) who were chosen by the Republicans lied, but more than likely those who chose them were of a similar mind.
In other words, those Republicans (and those who supported the decisions) are not as conservative as many Christians would like to believe. Their nominees reflect what, at the least, they would accept as politically viable.
With such a track record in business, the leadership would be fired; with such a track record in sports, the managment would be retired.
Trick me once, shame on you; trick me twice, shame on me; trick me thrice...well, three strikes and you're out!
