Alito Hearings Pt 3

I'm tired of conservatives having to pussyfoot around. I watched Alito parse his words again today. I want a nominee who is going to say:

"No I don't believe Roe V Wade is good precedent, I think it is an awful case and would overturn it if possible.

No I don't think there is a right to privacy in the Constitution. The word doesn't even appear there. There are some privacy rights, but they do not produce either a penumbra or an emanation.

Yes I do think the commerce clause has been over used and abused.

No I do not support Affirmative Action, it is racial discrimination pure and simple.

Yes I do support the right to own a gun. There is a reason the Founders made that our second Amendment immediately behind free speech."

It is time to stop these silly games we play with the Democratic Senators every time, especially when their nominees sail through without being grilled.

I'll agree with you on that one, albeit for different reasons (I'm opposed to the overturn of Roe v. Wade). If Alito is pro-life, why is apparently ashamed to admit it? Even if the Dems filibuster, the Republicans can use the "nuclear option" and push him through. You're in the MAJORITY, boys. What are they so afraid of?

Who knows, though. If he doesn't have the backbone to tell a few Democratic senators what he believes, maybe he won't have the guts to cast the deciding vote when the issue comes up.
