O'Connor Praises Supreme Court Nominee

Wednesday, July 20, 2005


(07-20) 11:19 PDT Spokane, Wash. (AP) --


Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor said Wednesday that the man President Bush nominated to replace her is "first rate," but she's disappointed in a sense that the nominee isn't a woman.


O'Connor didn't learn of the nomination of federal appeals court judge John G. Roberts until she heard about it on the radio while returning from a fishing trip, her fishing companion said.


"I have watched Judge Roberts since he has been an advocate before our court, and I and my colleagues have been enormously impressed with his scholarship and his skills," O'Connor said in an interview Wednesday during the annual conference of the 9th U.S. Circuit in Spokane. "He's earned an excellent reputation as a lawyer, so I think he's very well qualified."


"I am disappointed, in a sense, to see the percentage of women on our court drop by 50 percent, but I can't be disappointed in the quality of person nominated. He's first rate," she added.

2. It's a shame you won't be around long enough to reap what you've sown.
"Injustice O'Connor." Go jump off a conservative cliff.

3. Bush looked long and hard at finding a woman or a minority...
and at the end of the day decided a white male from Harvard was best.
Isn't that predictable for the leader of the GOP?

4. I thought Justices are suppose to stay out of politics
Do you think that old Sandra Day is thinking about a run for the Presidency? hmm conspiracy theorist.
