Bush Radio Address

For those of you who don't religiously listen to the President's radio address, he spent the entire time talking about Judge Alito. Here is a transcript of it.

This is my favorite part...
This past week, Judge Alito gained the endorsement of Pennsylvania's Democratic Governor, Ed Rendell. Governor Rendell said he was not pleased with the partisan way some of his fellow Democrats have handled Sam Alito's nomination. Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia announced he was voting for Judge Alito. And he said that many people in his state were calling the treatment of Judge Alito by some Democrats "an outrage and a disgrace." Another Democratic Senator expressed concern that the Senate confirmation process in recent years has become "overly politicized, to the detriment of the rule of law."
Governor Rendell is married to Judge Marjorie Rendell of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. That's the same court that Judge Alito has been on for 15 years. Gov. Rendell knows from Judge Rendell that Judge Alito is a decent guy. If Gov. Rendell, the former Democratic Party Chairman, is willing to go on the record in support of Judge Alito, maybe his fellow party members have gone overboard on their attacks. Maybe, just maybe.
