SUPREME COURT: Kavanaugh right choice for bench

In another time, the nominee for Supreme Court Justice, Bret Kavanaugh, would be considered out of central casting. His mother was a state judge. He attended Yale College and Yale Law School.

He clerked for Anthony Kennedy, He has worked at a private law firm. He has a young family and coaches CYO basketball.

He has impeccable character, extraordinary qualifications, independence and fairness. He received bi-partisan support in the Senate at the last confirmation hearing. He served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for 12 years and wrote opinions in nearly 300 cases with the Supreme Court endorsing an unprecedented 13 of his positions. He has extensive experience in executive branch working in Bush administration.

He was hired by liberal Justice Elena Kagan to teach at Harvard Law School. He received praise from liberal Yale constitutional law professor Aki Amy in the New York Times and liberal law professor Professor Amy Chua also endorsed him.

Judge Kavanaugh recognizes the role of a judge is to follow the Constitution and intrerpret law — not make law. Decisions should not seem arbitrary or based on personal preferences.

Considered a “judge’s judge,” Kavanaugh, with his towering intellect and keen legal mind and heart to go with it, deserves a 90-vote margin when the Senate casts its vote next month.
