The Wall Street Journal, which is owned by the same outfit that owns Fox News Channel, carried a piece of hand-wringing this morning about the fact that one of President Obama’s potential nominees for the Supreme Court actually has a record of opinion on the issue of abortion.
Horrors! What a disturbing break from recent tradition!
To hear Nathan Koppel, the author of the piece, tell it, recent high-court nominees have had “records virtually devoid of substantive statements on the matter” of abortion.
That’s nonsense. Don’t they have fact-checkers at the Journal?
As we see HERE, Samuel Alito came to the court four years ago with a paper trail showing his opposition to the Roe v. Wade ruling of 1973.
