Samuel Alito Watch: Leahy Will Vote NO on confirmation


Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito (C) listens to a question from ranking Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) (R) as Committee Chairman Arlen Specter (R-PA) looks on during tAlito’s confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill, January 10, 2006.

U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (news, bio, voting record) of Vermont, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced his opposition on Thursday to Supreme Court nominee
Samuel Alito.

What a surprise.

Leahy charged that President George W. Bush’s 55-year-old conservative candidate failed to demonstrate at last week’s confirmation hearing that he would bring a needed independence to the nation’s highest court.

“At a time when the president is seizing unprecedented power, the Supreme Court needs to act as a check and to provide balance,” Leahy said in a speech prepared for delivery at Georgetown University Law Center.

“I have no confidence that Judge Alito would provide that check and balance,” Leahy said. “I cannot support this nomination.”

What an EXCUSE.

Leahy couldn’t devise a rationale for denying Judge Alito’s confirmation.

How pathetic……

Stay tuned for more Morons from the Democrat LEFT demonizing Justice Alito……
