Today, James Dobson dedicated his radio program to discussing the upcoming National Day of Prayer. His guests included his wife Shirley, who is Chair of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, and John Bornschein, who is the organization's Executive Director. During the program, Dobson and Bornschein remarked on last week's ruling by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals that the National Day of Prayer is constitutional as proof God answered their prayers when the Day of Prayer came under attack from "the forces of Hell": Dobson: We've already had an incredible answered...

Anti-choice activists who have lined up behind Texas Gov. Rick Perry are attacking his primary opponent, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, for missing the cloture vote on David Hamilton's nomination to the Seventh Circuit: In a new email to supporters, Texas Right to Life opens with a huge picture of pro-life leaders across the state meeting with Perry. "Pro-lifers trust Gov. Rick Perry," the headline reads. "Senator Hutchison missed the chance to oppose the promotion of the most anti-life judge in the country." The email refers to the cloture vote on President Barack Obama's... MORE

Once upon a time, activists on the Right were vehemently opposed to the use of the filibuster against judicial nominees, declaring on principle that its use was flagrantly unconstitutional and calling on Senate Republicans to do away with the Democratic minority's ability to use them against President Bush's nominees. But then President Obama took office and made a Supreme Court nomination and those "principles" went right out the window and suddenly those who had been, just a few years earlier, decrying the filibuster as downright evil were championing it. Which brings us to this... MORE

So, anything happen while I was on vacation? Oh yeah, President Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to replace Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court. And guess what? The Right already doesn't like her:Family Research Council:"President Obama has chosen a nominee with a compelling personal story over judicial pick with a solid constitutional judicial philosophy. A compelling personal story is no substitute for allegiance to the Constitution and its sound application to public life."Judge Sotomayor's failure to premise her decisions on the text of the... MORE

Sen. Orrin Hatch says he spoke with President Obama, who "assured me that he would not be picking a radical or an extremist for the court that he was very pragmatic in his approach and that he would pick somebody who would abide by the rule of law.” Hatch also speculates that the White House could announce its nominee as soon as this week.Following Arlen Specter's defection, Sen. Jeff Session has been chosen to take over his position as ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committe in a move that is being welcomed by right-wing groups:“He is someone who has a tremendous...

Here's a quick collection of early right-wing reactions to the news that Justice David Souter will be retiring from the Supreme Court at the end of this term - it will continue to be updated as new statements are released:Wendy Long (Judicial Confirmation Network):1. The current Supreme Court is a liberal, judicial activist court. Obama could make it even more of a far-left judicial activist court, for a long time to come, if he appoints radicals like Diane Wood, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan. A new Justice in this mold would just entrench a bad majority for a long time.2. If Obama... MORE

Yesterday, Ed Whelan wrote a post on Bench Memos asking why Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy was trying “to rush through President Obama’s nomination of David F. Hamilton to the Seventh Circuit.” Today, he followed it up with a post linking to this CQ article reporting that Sen. Arlen Specter has weighed in to voice his opposition to the timing and saying that just because Hamilton has the support of his home state senators, that doesn’t mean he is free and clear: Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick J. Leahy said today that he plans to hold a... MORE
