Scalia and Thomas Still Bush Heroes

Ari Fleischer answers the question most conservatives have concerning the Supreme Court.

Asked by HUMAN EVENTS’ John Gizzi if the President stood by his campaign-year words to name Supreme Court justices of the caliber of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, White House press secretary Ari Fleischer replied: “The President stands by everything he said in the campaign.”

Fleischer also noted, however, that Bush named Scalia and Thomas when asked “who on the [Supreme] Court he admires the most” and listed an entire criterion for justices he would appoint. “So the answer [about appointing justices] would be ‘all of the above,'” Fleischer told Gizzi.
