Why is it now that the term "Activist" is being construed as something negative? And, in particular, why is it that judges are labled "Activist" only when they make decisions that are contrary to the current administrations' idea of what their decisions should be? Didn't the framers of the Constitution separate the three branches of the government for a reason?
I think so, don't you?
Shouldn't we also freely lable judges who rule against say, Roe V. Wade, as "activist" as well?
This is yet another classic case of hypocrisy delivered by Karl Rove and his team of "Extremist Conservative" Administrators that he has staffing our WhiteHouse.
"Without the protection of that amendment, we are at the mercy of activist federal judges or activist state judges who could, without the involvement of the people, determine as the Massachusetts Supreme Court did that marriage no longer consists of a union between a man and a woman," Rove said on the program Fox News Sunday.
End of slice:
Yikes, and Fox news running full court press for these extremists as the propaganda wing of their extremist agenda.
