ASCENT Blog to Conservatives: Why Are You So Pressed?

Correct us if we're wrong: 7 of the 9 Surpreme Court justices were appointed by Republican Presidents. Now, not to say that all Republicans are conservative (making that clear party/ideology distinction), but the math makes it pretty clear that conservatives have hit the jackpot with judicial nominees. Retirements and sudden deaths seems to always work in their favor. O'Connor is out, Rehnquist is soon to follow, so Bush is going to have a field day maintaining that track record.

So, what's the fuss? "Runaway jurists?" We think not - compliant and politically convenient is more like it. Does every aspect of American life have to be your way or the highway?
