On the Nomination of Samuel A. Alito Jr. to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court
The Senate began debate on January 25, 2006, on Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr.'s nomimation to the Supreme Court. It is expected the full Senate will take a final vote on Judge Alito's nomination on January 31, 2006.
Judge Alito's jurisprudence has been misrepresented by some of the attacks by Democratic senators and liberal interest groups. Superbly qualified for the Supreme Court is Judge Alito. In fact, an extensive investigation of Alito's career as an attorney and judge was conducted by the American Bar Association (ABA) – a liberal organization which unanimously gave him its highest rating of “well qualified” to join the Supreme Court.
During Judge Alito's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he demonstrated he was fully versed in Constitutional and statutory law. He was knowledgeable about Constitutional history as well as diverse subject matter which federal courts deal with as well as exhibited character and integrity.
Democrats Want a Judicial Activist Like Justice Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, Not a Constructionist Like Judge Alito
