|"Dan Coats is not fit for the fight on Supreme Court Justice|
|"There was a centuries-old tradition of respecting national electoral |
results by granting the President latitude in selecting nominees
for the bench."
|Howe, IN - Dan Coats has a terrible track record when it comes to judicial |
confirmations. He has even stated the reason for his bad votes as a matter of
"respecting national electoral results by granting the President latitude in selecting
nominees for the bench." Dan Coats used this flawed logic as a reason for voting
for such liberals as Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, two of the most liberal
judges on the bench. Now, with Justice John Paul Stevens set to retire, we can't have
a U.S. Senator from Indiana giving Obama a pass on Supreme Court nominees.
Sen. Marlin Stutzman stated, "Mr. Coats is simply wrong on this crucial issue of
our time. If the founding fathers intended the President to have unchecked authority
on judges, why do we have the judicial nominees approved by the Senate? Conservatives
need a fighter now more than ever. We don't need a Senator who will give cloak room
deals to the other party and vote for more liberal justices. This is really an issue that
separates me from my opponent.""
Baby baby, where did our love go? Oh, not THOSE Supremes!
Lake County and especially South Lake County, you need to think carefully about who you
believe to be the best candidate on the Republican side of the Senate race who can also
win in November. Both Marlin Stutzman and John Hostettler are polling above any Democrats
for a fall election in 2010.
