Apple Polishing?

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito said on Tuesday that the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion "deserved great respect" but did not say how he would rule on it, a Democratic senator said.

Let's see, maybe another one of these judicial nominees will maintain that the Dred Scott decision is still worthy of respect.

Is this disingenuous or what? Is Alito serious? Judge Roberts mouthed the same sort of nonsense. Can these guys be trusted at all? God help us if they don't have a pro-life agenda.

Perhaps it's simply that the prospect of power makes these people mealy-mouthed. Like any job interview, you try to say anything that will get you the job.

I think Roberts and Alito are indeed being deceptive when they try to give liberals the impression they aren't all that conservative. They don't fool the liberals, but they scare the heck out of me.
