The Ginsberg Precedent and Judge Roberts

From supporters of Supreme Court nominee John Roberts: a video discussing the virtual free ride that Ruth Bader Ginsberg got from Republicans in the Senate.

Our view is that, after the tough partisan treatment that Bork got, the Republicans were suckers when they rolled over and played dead when faced with a judge who was a 100% predictable liberal vote.

However, given that they did that, they have every right to insist that Roberts get the same treatment. One of the best parts of the video is a clip of Joseph Biden explaining why Ginsberg should not discuss any issue that might come before the court.

Democrats will have a hard time reversing themselves and demanding that Roberts promise them outcomes that they like.
