More Leftwing Lies About Alito

| | Comments (0)
Heh, the very first line of this NY Times editorial is a baldfaced lie:

Judge Samuel Alito Jr., whose entire history suggests that he holds extreme views about the expansive powers of the presidency and the limited role of Congress ...

No, it does not. His entire record as a judge shows precisely the opposite, and his entire record as a lawyer for the Executive Branch shows him supporting whatever policies his bosses told him to support, which was his job.

If you read that one memo he wrote about signing statements, it even looks to me like he doesn't believe it. He talks persuasively about the obstacles the policy will face, spending most of the memo on that -- asking, but not answering, some of the most important questions about the policy -- and makes a point of noting that he is writing the memo because he was told to.
