Roberts Frustrates Left
In his responses Wednesday, future Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts frustrated Senators Schumer and Feinstein with his learned and at times humorous responses to their over-the-top cross-examination.
Only in response to questions of propriety related to his failure to report being interviewed by the AG did he seem even a little off his game. At no time did he comment on pending cases or provide extra-legal political opinion, much to the chagrin of one Joseph Biden, Democrat of Delaware.
It is becoming obvious that this is a dress rehearsal for the next nominee. Veterans of the Clarence Thomas hearings say these hearings are less well attended with interest groups less strident, which is remarkable given today’s 24-hour news and wall-to-wall talk.
