General Disapproval

Alberto Gonzales' credentials as a moderate just got a boost. President Bush is coming under fire from pro-life groups for nominating him to the AG post:

"As a Texas Supreme Court justice, Gonzales' rulings implied he does not view abortion as a heinous crime," said Judie Brown, president of the American Life League, in a written statement.

"Why is President Bush betraying the babies? Justice begins with protecting the most vulnerable in our midst. Please, Mr. President -- just say no to the unjust views of Alberto Gonzales."
It would appear that Ms. Brown expected the second Bush administration to be a group of Christian soldiers, ushering in the New American Theocracy. She and a number of others were wrong.
