So, a reporter for USA Today calls me and asks about my opposition to the judge, citing my posts here. I told him I am not opposed to the judge. I don’t know him. I am just asking questions. And I’d like to know why Schumer and Aron liked him. I also said that those conservatives who oppose him will have a high bar to jump given that many conservatives like him. This is not a Harriet Miers situation, in which there was near universal and immediate outrage on the Right. And I closed by saying if he is nominated, the president is likely to get him. Besides, he would only have 15 months if he started today, and that’s not enough time for anyone to accomplish much or do much damage.
So, let me repeat for any reporter out there reading this site, don’t look to me as leading a group of malcontents against this judge. I am simply curious about him.
