Exposing Hypocrisy

Attorney and former appelate law clerk Stuart Buck said this more concisely than I could have:

While the standard Democratic line is that Roberts didn’t “answer enough questions,” or that he didn’t answer them fully enough, or that he didn’t take a firm position on specific cases (read: abortion), etc., etc., this is all just a smokescreen. If Roberts had given a perfectly clear answer to the effect that he would vote to overrule Roe at the first opportunity, the Democrats would certainly not respond by saying, “Now that we have a clear answer, we’ll be happy to vote for you.” To the contrary, all of the talk about “not enough answers” really means “not enough answers that explicitly affirm the Democratic Party position.”
