Understanding that “liberal” and “conservative” are relative terms, when it comes to judges nowadays. Harry Blackmun was a Republican, and joined what was then considered the conservative bloc of the court, when he was appointed. He himself even famously said, he didn’t change, the court changed around him.
Anyways, in former days, it was thought a good president should appoint both liberals and conservatives to the courts. It was meant to keep a balance. Nixon apparently did it. So did Ford. Even Reagan and Bush 1 did it for a while.
Even Clinton did it. (I mentioned that on a former post and I was rather rudely contradicted. But I did hear on a recent morning news program actually he did [so sorry, no cites]. How ironic if one of my detractors saw the same news cast.)
Anyways, it is or was what a good president was supposed to do. So my question: Have any of President Trump’s appointments to the court been liberal?
I know about 15 or 20 years ago, I asked the same question about Bush 2. And someone said, oddly enough, that one of them was. Just one. Has Mr. Trump, then, done even one?
Thank you all in advance for your thoughtful and civil replies:).
