We’ve got the front pages of Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s Washington Post sitting right here in front of us. Post Bright reported Tuesday, “Roberts Unlikely to Face Big Fight” and quotes lots of un-named Democrat Senators and staffers as saying they don’t have the votes to block Judge John Roberts’ confirmation and that, as a consequence, “they will not launch a major fight” to block his nomination.
So far, so good.
Unfortunately, liberal activists hell-bent to fight Roberts’ nomination also read the Post. So Post Dark reported on Wednesday this headline: “Democrats Feel Heat From Left on Roberts“. What a difference a day makes.
For our money, we prefer Post Bright. Hope they come ’round again. Those Democrats quoted in Tuesday’s story need to assert themselves and stand up to the folks who are only itching for a partisan fight. We go all the way back to the earliest days of this issue, pre-nomination, when the Post Bright said this shouldn’t be a political campaign. They were right then, should maybe remind everyone of what they said before the pitched battle began.
