Strict Constructionist

President Bush promises to choose a strict constructionist for the Supreme Court–someone who will faithfully interpret what the Constitution actually says and who will not legislate from the bench. Let’s be realistic. If the president does nominate a true strict constructionist, someone who does not automatically bow to a “woman’s right to choose,” the Kennedys, Feinsteins, and Durbins of the Senate will go ballistic. Unless Bush betrays the people who put him in office, the liberals will scream bloody murder. If he’s going to be hammered anyway, Bush better not go for a bunt single. It’s time to swing for the fences.
