I can't believe this guy was Counsel to Prez

[Editor's Note: It appears that Dr. Grishka is referring to the column by John W. Dean referenced in Borked's post immediately below. Dean was White House Counsel to President Richard M. Nixon.]

Dean is getting demented. Just some of the errors in his post. First off, Reagan campaigned in 1980 and 84 not 82 and 86. Second, Roe was a 7-2 vote (White and Rehnquist dissented), not a 6-3.

Next, Kerry may not have talked much about his likely SCOTUS choices, but he has a 20 year voting history on Supreme Court nominees.

Yea-Breyer, Ginsburg, Scalia (no Nays were cast), Kennedy (no Nays); Nay-Souter (one of only 9 Nays), Thomas, Bork, Rehnquist (for CJ). The Kennedy-Scalia votes are not all that indicative because they were unanimous. The Souter-Rehnquist vote is more telling because he voted against promoting a highly qualified Justice to CJ, and against a very moderate judge whom he viewed as "too conservative."

Then of course, Dean goes on blabbing about 5 Justices selecting Bush. What nonsense. First of all, 7 justices agreed to reverse Florida's SC. Next, it continues to baffle me why a 5-4 (even if it was 5-4 and not 7-2) decision of SCOTUS is bad, while 4-3 SCOFLA (by an all-Democrat court) is good.

Look, being a political and a judicial junkie myself, I understand the importance of Presidential election to the development of the law. I also understand why partisans would want to spin facts their way. But please, before spinning anything, let's at least get the facts right.

I'm not quite sure what your argument is. Please quote the relevant (offending) passage(s) and provide an URL for the article. Thanks.
