Our Attorney General just keeps getting himself in the news. This time it’s over comments he made regarding that particularly controversial SCOTUS decision.
From ABC News:
In an interview with The Associated Press, Gonzales said a justice does not have to follow a previous ruling “if you believe it’s wrong,” a comment suggesting Roberts would not be bound by his past statement that the 1973 decision settled the issue.
And I would say simply that he’s right. If your opinions have changed about something then your opinions have changed and you’re not bound by your previous opinions.
After all, nobody ever said flip-flopping was the sort of thing that would make somebody unfit to lead. Oh…wait…
The question remains, does anyone want to touch this political third rail?
