The New Deal - they want to repeal

I thought the President's press conference tonight seemed contrary to what you are saying here, that he would want the judiciary to overturn the New Deal.

The beauty of using the judicial nominees to further the neo-con agenda is that the politicians can wash their hands of the whole thing and let it be blamed on the activist judiciary. They can even then turn around and use such extreme measures by the judiciary as an excuse to reign in the judiciary. That is exactly what Bill Frist, Tom DeLay and John Conryn would like to see happen.

As for the desire to repeal the new deal one only needs to look at the judicial nominees to see the agenda behind them. Here are a few links about these nominees, more to follow:

That President Bush nominates conservatives to the bench is no surprise. But, Brown, Claude Allen, and Charles Pickering have spent their careers on the radical edge of the right wing. Brown is an outspoken supporter of a return to a pre-New Deal – that’s Franklin Roosevelt – perspective of the law. For those who don’t want to dwell in the first third of the last century, that should be frightening. She argues that America has become a “nation of whiners” and that policymakers are “handing out new rights like lollipops in the dentist’s office.”

I will be happy to find some more evidence of what the neo-con agenda really is but it may take a few days because I have a lot to do. The key is not what Bush says it is what he doesn't need to say because he has judicial nominees to do it for him. When you take that into account it's really a scary picture. And like I said this way they can have their cake and eat it too because their hands are clean.
