Bush Gets It


That’s my basic wrap-up, listening to him announce the Roberts nomination. Bush picked Roberts–didn’t play identity poltics. And he is making this announcemnent during primetime. The president is now emphasizing that the Supreme Court’s decisions influence the lives of every American (they can take your house!) He gets how important the Supreme Court is.

UPDATE: He will not legislate from the bench. Did I mention he gets it?
