John Roberts and Family Values

Sound silly? Watch the video of how his two young children acted during the President's speech.

They are calling it Nanny 911 for John Roberts, his four year old son had to be taken out of the room, after crawling around on the floor and tried to bite his mom when she tried to get him to stop. As a parent, kids only act like that if they are not used to regular discipline or know respect of parental authority. Let's hope none of the "spare the rod spoil the child" Focus on Family bunch was watching.




Watch video


Update: After browsing around tonight, I'm surprised at the number of Liberal/Democrat blogs and groups that are going all out against John Roberts. Given some of the other more extreme names discussed, you'd think they would be happy that at least Roberts was not one of those. Anyone that expected President Bush to nominate someone that was not a Conservative Republican who didn't support abortion was not being realistic. This is not the one to put millions of dollars into fighting. Unless you want people to think that it wouldn't matter who it was some groups would fight it. The real truth here is all Presidents pick Supreme Court Justices who reflect their party beliefs. Rather than breathe a sigh of relief that President Bush did not pick one of the real extremists out there, this call to action to such a huge degree suprises me. John Kerry's email I got today on this was almost amusing, you would have thought it was Karl Rove that got the nomination.

For an interesting take on this subject not quite the same as mine, check out What it is today:

Rather than another update I'll add this here...One more reason to like John Roberts? Ann Coulter doesn't like him.....

Ann spouts off

Strike another mark in the I LIKE John Roberts category...

Well, that is something (Couletr doesn't like him) good.

I don't have a problem with him. We need something to go smoothly. We will have to see. I'm just watching, and yes, there are a lot worse than him....

If a 3-year-old who can't keep still is the worst thing you can find about him (by the way, has anyone EVER met a 3-year-old who sits perfectly still like a darling little angel? I didn't think so...) then I'd say Bush definitely picked the right guy.

Josh, I thought the video was funny, but as a parent of five kids, at age four they should know not to bite mom which means mom and dad are a bit more liberal than this "liberal" when it comes to parenting.

That said, I don't think he's a bad candidate considering he is being nominated by a Republican President. I don't understand what some of those against him expected. As I wrote, given some of the other possible names floating around out there? John Roberts despite the Nanny 911 moment is better than quite a few of them.
