Gen. Ed Meese and operating under the umbrella of the Conservative Action Project has issued a highly critical analysis of Goodwin Liu, President Obama' s nominee to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, saying he has "repeatedly shown a lack of respect for the Constitution as the Supreme law of the land." Alito was also confirmed with bipartisan support. * In a 2008 Stanford Law Review article, Mr. Liu wrote that judges should engage in "socially situated modes of reasoning that appeal ... to the culturally and historically contingent meanings of particular social goods in our own society" and to "determine, at the moment of decision, whether our collective values on a given issue have converged to a degree that they can be persuasively crystallized and credibly absorbed into legal doctrine."
