Among Those Who Disagree with Rev. Robertson

Ask a WWII veteran whether federal judges pose a greater threat to our way of life than did Germany or Japan. My father, who served on a minesweeper in the Pacific, thinks Robertson is nuts.
The point is not that Pat Robertson has a skewed perspective on American history, but that he is speaking in support of the priorities of the Republican leadership in Washington.
It's easy to scoff at Pat Robertson, but it's the Republicans in congress who have put this radical agenda front and center by passing legislation to intervene in the Terri Schiavo case, by introducing bills to make it easier to remove federal judges and by threatening to eliminate the fillibuster which has protected minority interests for two centuries.
