One Cheer

Earlier this year, I spoke of my desire to write with a bit more optmism. I trust that I won't be accused of sounding pollyannaish, but let me give one cheer to the president.

Unlike some on the paleo-right, I have been largely pleased with the selection of Roberts and Alito to sit on the Supreme Court. In my estimation, Roberts is unlikely to be as reliable as Rehnquist, but overall, I think the selections are solid given the political environment.

You may be correct about his view of executive power. We'll see. For now, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Ultimately, though, it is up to Congress rather than the courts to reign in the executive branch.
