Tea Party Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli: Scalia Is Too Liberal

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by pinto (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Think Progress

Justice Antonin Scalia is easily the Supreme Court’s most strident conservative. He defends torture and finds little wrong with executing the innocent. He once argued that the Constitution does not protect women from gender discrimination (although he’s since backed off this statement somewhat). Scalia compared same-sex attraction to murder. He believes our immigration law should look to antebellum laws excluding “freed blacks” from southern states for guidance. And he spent the much of the Supreme Court arguments on the Affordable Care Act parroting conservative talking points against health reform.

Yet, according to Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R), Scalia’s really just a squishy liberal:

At the annual gathering of the conservative National Review Institute, held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, Cuccinelli appeared on a panel discussing the topic, “Does the Constitution Have a Future?” During the session, he criticized President Obama, suggesting the president had a malleable vision of the meaning of sin and of the Constitution.

“And really the way to fight back, given the governmental structure we have, the primary way is to get good judges who don’t accept what is wrong as right after a while,” Cuccinelli said, according to a video clip of the discussion. “Justice Scalia is in this category: ‘Well, we’ve been doing it wrong for a while, so now it’s part of the Constitution.’ I don’t buy that. I don’t buy that. And that needs to be reflected in the judges selected by the president, not this president, but the president generally, and approved by the Senate. They need to take that a lot more seriously than they do.”

It is amazing that Ken Cuccinelli is a front runner for Governor in a state that President Obama won. Imagine, Ken Cuccinelli attackng Scalia from the right!

4. Sick is only half of it. They are dangerous and they won't quit. This is Grovers's Tea Party Two.

The money is pouring in for them. That's why some of us who donated to the OFA are continuing our donations to keep a grassroots presence to combat them.

8. The first paragraph you quote is slimy.

If we want to be different from idiots like Limbaugh and Hannity and the like,, we shouldn't drop to their level of discourse.

9. Pertinent and current political stuff, but not Late Breaking News. Analysis piece.

Suggest re-post in another main forum. Thanks. Locking.
