Roberts clerked for the Rehnquist. It not uncommon to replace a justice with someone who has a similar mindset.
Is that what he's saying? Or is he saying that he thinks judges should keep their stances out of their rulings? Thus -- professionally -- it's his job not to take a stance.I know thats cynical, but i honestly cannot have respect for a man who claims to have NO STANCE ON ANYTHING.
Isn't that exactly what we want out of a SCOTUS judge?I know thats cynical, but i honestly cannot have respect for a man who claims to have NO STANCE ON ANYTHING.
What it comes down to is if you like the Constitution, you don't need the judge to have a stance. You just need him to do the job he's required by law, oath, and ethics to do. It's if you somehow want the Constitution to say things that it doesn't - that effectively banning MG manufacturing for the civilian market isn't an "infringement", that the commerce clause trumps all local law, that seizing your house to sell to a mall is legitimate eminent domain - that you need judges to have stances.
