Justification for Voting Against Alito. . .
Here’s what three of the Democratic Senators on the Judiciary Committee had to say today about Judge Alito’s performance during the hearings. . .
You strike me as a very cautious and careful person. And I say that with admiration, because a judge should be that.
I don’t think anybody thinks you are a man lacking in integrity. I don’t think anybody thinks that you are a person who’s not independent.
The people I’ve spoken to on your court — and it’s my circuit — have a very high regard for you. And I think you’re a man of integrity.
and Biden again:
I appreciate [Judge Alito] being responsive.
I think it’s been interesting. I think he’s made a good presentation . . . .
Sounds like good reasons to vote against someone. . . they all will.
