Why Alito is the wrong choice

San Francisco Chronicle

01/17/06

Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr. was careful to avoid being too revealing at his Senate confirmation hearings, but he did answer the overriding question. He is the wrong choice to succeed Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the nation's highest court. In some ways, Alito's taciturn approach to questions about the great constitutional issues of our time was similar to that of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. But the distinction between the history of the two judges -- and the role of the justice they were nominated to replace -- are important. Of the two, Alito had far more explaining to do about his past, and his answers fell short of satisfying concerns about his record of advocating repeal of Roe vs. Wade, highlighting his membership in a Princeton alumni group with retrograde views of women and minorities and all too frequently siding with government and businesses against individuals seeking redress." [editor's note: And it is this last item that should be of concern to liberals, conservatives, progressives, libertarians and anyone else concerned with civil liberties: Alito is a big-government corporatist apologist, and that is why he should not be on the Court! - SAT]
