The Left Applauds an Unprincipled Ass Judge Because He’s Become Less Conservative Because of the “Goofy” GOP
Richard Posner – Larry David’s sluggish brother
This makes little sense.
NPR (No Link, I pay these morons already) -
Judge Richard Posner, a conservative on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, has long been one of the nation’s most respected and admired legal thinkers on the right.
Never heard of him.
But in an interview with NPR, he expressed exasperation at the modern Republican Party, and confessed that he has become “less conservative” as a result.
He was never a conservative and I can prove it with his own words.
Posner expressed admiration for President Ronald Reagan and the economist Milton Friedman, two pillars of conservatism. But over the past 10 years, Posner said, “there’s been a real deterioration in conservative thinking. And that has to lead people to re-examine and modify their thinking.”
This is a “judge”? This is frightening. You’re either conservative or you’re not. If you believe, for example, in supply-side economics, what forces you to modify your thinking? Other people acting goofy?
“I’ve become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy,” he said.
I wonder if this guy is a principled conservative or just some weirdo that would change his views because of high school type cliques and such.
Because if you put yourself in Roberts’ position … what’s he supposed to think? That he finds his allies to be a bunch of crackpots? Does that help the conservative movement? I mean, what would you do if you were Roberts? All the sudden you find out that the people you thought were your friends have turned against you, they despise you, they mistreat you, they leak to the press. What do you do? Do you become more conservative? Or do you say, ‘What am I doing with this crowd of lunatics?’ Right? Maybe you have to re-examine your position.”
My question is answered. He’ll be perfect for the left-wing. Take him.
