Anti-civil Rights, Believes in Segregation and Anti-Choice and Privacy
This was written to deter his nomination to the US Court of Appeals - DC Court. Imagine what they would of said or will say for the SCOTUS....

<snip>

While working under Presidents Reagan and Bush, Mr. Roberts supported a hard-line, anti-civil rights policy that opposed affirmative action, would have made it nearly impossible for minorities to prove a violation of the Voting Rights Act and would have resegregated Americas public schools. He also took strongly anti-choice positions in two Supreme Court cases, one that severely restricted the ability of poor women to gain information about abortion services, and another that took away a key means for women and clinics to combat anti-abortion zealots.

Opposition to the Confirmation of John G. Roberts
to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit

3. He is a Moderate's worst nightmare...
Utterly unqualified, with nothing to recommend him except mindless party loyalty and a history of being a toady for extremists...
