Many Democrats are coming out against the confirmationof Samuel Alito to the US Supreme Court. Although I had previously been leaning in favor of his confirmation, I began to lean the other way this week. The turning point for me is precisely the issue that the Democrats seem to be bringing forward: Alito’s basically a rubber stamp on expanding executive power.
Our great nation can’t afford such a profound weakness in so crucial a role at such a poignant time. For this reason above all others, I do not support Alito’s confirmation.
