Robert H. Bork, distinguished jurist and author, passed away today at the Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, VA. He was of age. In addition to being a staunch advocate of Constitutional originalism (the idea that the Founders and Writers of the Constitution had said and written what they meant, regardless of how later persons "interpreted" their words), Judge Bork was a Yale Law School Professor (not guest lecturer), Solicitor General of the United States, Acting Attorney General, and Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. In 1987 he was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan. What ensued in the Senate confirmation hearings was, in all likelihood, the beginning of what is now the favored political tactic of the Democrat Party...that is, character assasination. Led by the odious Ted Kennedy, Judge Bork's distinguished record as a jurist and legal educator, was demeaned and denigrated mercilessly. In part, Kennedy said this: "Robert Bork's America is a land ...
RIP Robert Bork, a native of Pittsburgh his name became a verb "borked" on the impact of Arlen Specter on his Supreme Court nomination.
Pat Toomey,the Club for Growth herohas been running to become the Senator from Pennsylvania for a while now and has had Arlen Specter in his cross hairs. James Dobson and the religious right squad have been trying to defeat Specter because they aim to control the Supreme Court and overturn Roe v Wad...
Add this this to the always complicated and often maddening legacy of Arlen Specter in the United States Senate: no Senator in fifty years had as profound an influence on the Supreme Court as he did. Specter served on...
October 15, 2012 (HARRISBURG, Pa.) -- "Arlen Specter, a pugnacious and prominent former moderate in the U.S. Senate who developed the single-bullet theory in President John F. Kennedy's assassination and played starring roles in Supreme Court confirmation hearings, lost a battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma at a time when Congress is more politically polarized than anyone serving there -- or living in America -- can remember. Specter, 82, died Sunday, after spending much of his career in the U.S. Senate warning of the dangers of political intolerance." Today is John's birthday, and he too has non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He has admired Senator Specter for his politics and for his long fight against this cancer.
John Fund writes on NRO: Arlen Specter, the veteran senator from Pennsylvania who died yesterday at age 82, often infuriated conservatives. He was the leading Republican against the confirmation of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, he engaged in raw pork-barrel politics, and he was one of only three...
Yesterday, Arlen Specter died, a demon down. Of all Anita Hill's adversaries when she testified about Clarence Thomas's sexual harassment and generally disgusting values, Specter was the most relentless and rude of the interrogators. His disdain for her as a woman, as a black woman, oozed. Listening to him, a well-regarded democrat, stripped bare any pretenses that racial hatred and woman-hating were things of the past. In a twist of fate, on this day in 1991, the Senate confirmed Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court with a vote of 52-48. As a Justice, Thomas has disregarded disclosure rules, attended secretive Koch fundraisers, and exhibited other unethical behavior. Credo's calling for his impeachment. I believe Anita Hill.
I missed last night's debate, but all i know is that Biden has been in the Senate for years, was the head of the Senate Judiciary Committe and went to head to head with Sen. Arlen Specter during the Anita Hill hearings to try to block Clarence Thomas's appointment to the Supreme Court, and Ryan's an *** who spouts alot of nonsense that most people don't even believe (in.) SO, i think this is more important to circulate and share AFTER the debate than before! Please share!
is pals with turncoat Sen. Arlen Specter, This one is just brilliant!!! Arlen Specter is a FORMER REPUBLICAN, who coincidentally, helped save Clarence Thomas’ nomination to the US Supreme Court and helped assure the confirmations of Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito. The fact is that during the entire time that Frank Scaturro worked with Senator Specter, he was a REPUBLICAN. Does it make sense that Frank Scaturro should be held responsible because Arlen Specter switched over to the Democrats in a pathetic attempt to save his seat in the Senate??? That’s like holding George Washington responsible for Benedict Arnold going from being one of Washington’s most trusted and able Generals, and a hero of several Revolutionary War battles (see Capture of Fort Ticonderoga, Battle of Ridgefield and Battles of Saratoga), to being a traitor who switched sides to the British!!! How asinine!!!
Thaaat's right. Orrin Hatch thought Arlen Specter was the man to decide what the Supreme Court looked like.
LUGAR DEFEATED IN PRIMARY IN INDIANA.Lugar, 80, along with Utah’s Orrin Hatch, is the longest serving Republican in the Senate. But like GOP senators Lisa Murkowski in Alaska, Bob Bennett in Utah, and Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania in 2010, Lugar found himself challenged by those in his party who decided he was not conservative enough on federal spending. And Republican insiders in Washington said Lugar seemed to underestimate the seriousness of the challenge that Mourdock posed. Mourdock criticized Lugar for voting for Obama’s two Supreme Court nominees and for his vote to end a filibuster on the Democratic-sponsored DREAM Act which many conservatives see as merely a form of amnesty for illegal immigrants. The people are starting to show them the door.
