Does this sound like a ringing endorsement to you (FRC on Roberts):
Washington, D.C. - Family Research Council welcomed President Bush's nomination of Judge John Roberts to succeed retiring Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. FRC President Tony Perkins released the following statement.

"President Bush has chosen an exceptionally well-qualified and impartial nominee for the Supreme Court. Judge Roberts is widely respected for his fair judgment, intellect and integrity, all things qualifying him to serve as the next Supreme Court Justice. I believe that Judge Roberts will strictly interpret the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.

"Judge Roberts is well-qualified and experienced and he deserves a fair up or down vote. There should be a fair hearing for this fair minded judge."



?????? Sounds a bit luke-warm to me.

What if Janice Rogers Brown or John Ashcroft had been nominated? I think we'd see more than 5 sentences.
