Here is a quote from Ted Kennedy back in 1990 when Samuel Alito was confirmed to the appellate bench:
"You [Alito] have obviously had a very distinguished record, and I certainly commend you for long service in the public interest. I think it is a very commendable career and I am sure you will have a successful one as a judge."
Here’s another quote from Sen. Kennedy, this time from Monday:
"If confirmed, Alito could very well fundamentally alter the balance of the court and push it dangerously to the right, placing at risk decades of American progress in safeguarding our fundamental rights and freedoms."
That’s quite the 180 degree turn. I wonder why Kennedy’s opinion changed so drastically... Hey, I’m just saying.
