We have to gaze in amazement at the way the US goverment is run. From lobbying (wich most of us call bribery) to the hand picking of the high court judges by the president.

Now I cant see a conflict of interests can you?


Was it the 2000 elections when it was exactly those same set of Judges that picked their president? How can they take this stuff so seriously over there?

BTW yes i did serch to see if this was being adressed elsewher...

Well, the news is kind of all over the Politics Board already as Other Current Events was getting it yesterday. Mind fleshing out the "conspiracy" here?

How is this a conspiracy?

The 216 year-old Constitution gives plenary power to the President to nominate whomever he chooses to the Court.

yes, then the constitution gave the senate (our voice, susposedly) the responsiblity to carefully evaluate this nominee and either voice their approval or disapproval. And, if enough disapprove, well, the nominee can be denied....
it's not the constitution that is at fault, it's the fact that our elected representatives forgot who they were susposed to be representing, as well as alot of the american people I think.

If you don't care enough about something to care for it, preserve it, and maintain it, well, that something often will fade away and die. If we are fading, it's more because not enough people are really caring weather it is preserved and cared for...they have other interest in mind.

Hahahahaha, then it is the Bush Administrative's fault. Really, this administration has screwed up the US economy and all american government traditions. At some points, it looks as if Bush himself is the Senate, the court, and the rest the of country! He wants to be dictator of some sort, lol.

And the senate, 20 months ago, voted him into the courts unanimously. What changed over the past two years? How did he become so detestable in such a short time? Or...could this be...nah, couldn't be partisan politics, we're talking about the Democrats, and they never would do that!

Roberts may have a bumpier road ahead than expected.

Roberts Helped Counsel Jeb Bush

The Associated Press
Thursday, July 21, 2005; 7:31 PM


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- During the tumultuous presidential recount in 2000, John Roberts flew to Florida and volunteered advice to Gov. Jeb Bush, whose brother was trying to clinch the election.

"The Senate should reject him on the basis of this alone," said Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla. "Now he is being rewarded for that partisan service."

Roberts, who was in private practice at the time, accepted Jeb Bush's invitation to come to Florida at his own expense to offer advice to the governor. He spent only about a half hour with Bush and never played a major role at a time when scores of attorneys swarmed into the state.

As an independent, I have had no problems with the Roberts appointment, but if this conflict of interest proves true, perhaps another choice should have been considered. Will have to wait & see.
