I hope President Bush knows what he is doing by switching and nominating John Roberts to replace Chief Justice Rehnquist. I think it would have been more prudent to nominate someone with an already excellent track record, such as Justice Scalia, to the Chief Justice position.

President Bush nominated John Roberts yesterday. He has been a judge on the Court of Appeals for two years and has a sparse to nonexistent paper trail. I’m fairly certain he will be confirmed; However, I am always leery of Supreme Court nominees, especially ones lacking a paper trail. Only time (and a few court decisions) will tell if he is up to par.

Wow I haven’t posted anything since November. This summer is moving right along. I went to Florida; I stayed in Longboat Key and visited Selby Gardens there. I also spent some time in St. Armands key and various other places around the Sarasota/Bradenton area. In addition, we drove to Orlando one day and went to Epcot.

In the political scene we have the upcoming fight over President Bush’s Supreme Court nomination to fill at least Sandra Day O’Connor’s seat. Chief Justice Rehnquist appears to want to die in office. Sandra Day O’Connor was a moderate so it will be nice if she is replaced with a conservative. I hope President Bush doesn’t make the same mistake of appointing a liberal as other Republican Presidents in the past, including his father, have done. The most famous example of this was President Eisenhower’s appointment of Chief Justice Earl Warren, which he called “the biggest damn fool mistake I ever made”. On the current court: President Nixon appointed conservative leaning Rehnquist, President Ford appointed liberal John Paul Stevens, President Reagan appointed two moderates(Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy) and one conservative(Antonin Scalia), President Bush (H.W.) appointed liberal David Souter (but somewhat made up for it by appointing Clarence Thomas), Clinton, of course, appointed two liberals (Breyer and Ginsburg). Even though it will be a harder fight it is better to have someone with a large paper trail to see where they stand on issues. I would like to see someone similar to Scalia or Thomas be appointed. Someone who is an originalist and strictly interprets the constitution and follows the original meaning of it, not a judicial activist who claims it is a “living” document so they can justify ruling in favor of liberal causes they support.

I cast my vote for President Bush this morning.  I arrived before the polls opened at 7:00 AM.  The line appeared long but moved quickly and I was out in 10 minutes.

I grew up during the Reagan presidency and continue to be inspired by him.  He was the greatest president of the 20th century.  He was a strong leader who stood up for what was right, he strengthened the military, ended the cold war, realized the government must be limited, cut taxes, and strengthened the economy.  God bless him and may he rest in peace.
