Obama's empathetic judicial poison

Barack Obama’s statement that “empathy” would be a key qualification he’d look for in a nominee to replace David Souter on the Supreme Court is not simply soft liberal thinking, it’s a direct attack on the rule of law, an abrogation of Obama’s oath of office – and entirely consistent with Obama’s prior statements. Obama’s statement about the process of selecting his nominee included this:

Can't we agree to disagree?

I have always been conscious of the phrase “one man, one vote.” It is America’s great leveling device. I am not sure if all voters in Keizer have the same influence. FreedomWorks, the artist formerly known as Citizens for a Sound Economy, has decided to put three initiatives on the ballot – a state spending cap, a measure to have judges elected by geographical area, and a measure to crimp unions' ability to use collected dues for political purposes.

Political fight brewing over appellate judge election in Oregon

PORTLAND — A national conservative group has begun collecting signatures to force a statewide vote on how appellate judges should be elected, after a similar measure was rejected in 2002. Judges for the Oregon Supreme Court and the Oregon Court of Appeals are elected on a statewide basis. The initiative campaign organized and financed by FreedomWorks would require the Legislature to divide the state into seven districts of equal population for electing Supreme Court justices.

Group wants judges elected by geography

A political brawl is brewing over the way Oregon chooses its top appellate judges. A national conservative group has begun collecting signatures to force a statewide vote on whether state Supreme Court and Court of Appeals judges should be elected in districts rather than statewide. In 2002 -- the last time the idea was on the ballot -- Oregon voters narrowly rejected it. Supporters say the change would diffuse the courts' power away from politically liberal population centers, such as Portland and Eugene, and give rural residents better representation.

Bust Judicial Filibusters

This piece by FreedomWorks Co-Chairman C. Boyden Gray originally appeared in Human Events Online. The Senate moved closer this week to a long-awaited showdown over President Bush’s judicial nominees—10 of whom Democrats blocked starting in 2003 by using the parliamentary device known as the filibuster. As Republican leaders have moved closer to restoring 214 years of Senate tradition of giving judicial nominees an up-or-down vote, Democrats have launched an aggressive defense of their unprecedented use of the filibuster that is based on mythology, not fact.

The Filibuster-Proof Majority?

In a year likely to be filled with political conflict, few clashes loom larger than those involving the composition of the federal judiciary. The battle lines are drawn: President Bush has already announced that he will resubmit judicial nominees blocked during the last Congress and Senate Democrats are already signaling they won't relent in their opposition.
