Connie Mackey, formerly of the Reagan White House and currently vice president of the Family Research Council, last week took a well-aimed whack at Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.), who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
At a press conference organized by Women for Roberts, Mackey said: “Sen. Feinstein, for too long far-leftist organizations consumed with only one agenda, the pro-abortion agenda, have claimed they represent all women in general. Message number one: They do not. The women you see here today represent the mainstream of women in America who are bright, smart and want competent people on the Supreme Court, who will interpret the Constitution, not legislate from the bench. They want a fair, timely up-or-down vote on one of the most qualified nominees ever presented in the history of the court. … Sen. Feinstein, woman to woman, I ask you to employ the same courtesy for Judge Roberts’ hearing and confirmation [that Republicans gave Clinton nominee Ruth Ginsburg in 1993].”
