Hard work by Conservative Movement, including Christian Coalition, pays off as Federal Judiciary turns more conservative

The "New York Times" reported today in an article entitled: "Appeals Courts Pushed to Right by Bush Choices," that President George W. Bush on October 6th in a speech before the Cincinnati chapter of the Federalist Society, pointed with pride to his record of appointing judges who do not legislate from the bench; judges called "strict constructionists" because they make their rulings according to what the law and the United States Constitution say.   Even the "New York Times" pointed out that one of President Bush's legacies will be a "lifetime-tenured force that will influence society for decades and that represents one of his most enduring accomplishments." 

President Bush noted in his speech that he has appointed a third of the federal judiciary expected to be serving when he leaves office next January.  As the "Times" reported today, "while a two-term president typically leaves his stamp on the appeals court  --  Bill Clinton appointed 65 judges, Mr. Bush 61 — Mr. Bush’s judges were among the youngest ever nominated and are poised to have an unusually strong impact."

The conservative movement, including Christian Coalition of America, put in a lot of hard work over the past 8 years getting most of President Bush's outstanding qualified judicial nominees confirmed in the Senate.   We experienced some great battles with the Senate left-wingers who obstructed these nominations in an unprecedented fashion.

The "New York Times said:  Republican-appointed judges, most of them conservatives, are projected to make up about 62 percent of the bench next Inauguration Day, up from 50 percent when Mr. Bush took office. They control 10 of the 13 circuits, while judges appointed by Democrats have a dwindling majority on just one circuit."

The "New York Times" also reported that "Conservative and liberal legal activists alike are trying to motivate voters to view the balance of the judiciary as a major issue in the election. Senator John McCain John McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, has promised to appoint judges in the same ideological mold as Mr. Bush did, while Senator Barack Obama, a Democrat, has said he will select judges with greater 'empathy' for the disadvantaged."

These facts are among the most critical reasons why supporters of Christian Coalition of America need to exercise their constitutional right and come out to vote next Tuesday.  The next president --  through his appointments to the federal judiciary  --   will have a tremendous influence on America's culture for decades to come.
