Seeking a Judicial Fiat
Posted by Sal on November 27, 2006
The American Left has always attempted to push its liberal agenda through the courts rather than through elected officials. This is because the American people soundly reject liberalism whenever it is put forth in the Court of Public Opinion (this was one of the reasons for the 1994 electoral landslide the Republicans had).
A new case is coming before the Supreme Court this week. Unhappy with the Environmental policy of the Bush Administration, a group of environmental groups, states, and cities, are seeking the help of the Court to force the Bush administration to regulate the amount of Carbon Dioxide that comes from cars. So much for trusting the “will of the people.”
