From Progress from America:

Progress For America Inc. (PFA) president Brian McCabe today vowed to defend President Bush’s nominee to the United States Supreme Court, Judge John G. Roberts — who was confirmed unanimously by the US Senate just two years ago — from attacks by liberal special interest groups bent on the personal destruction of any nominee to the high court.

“A former Rehnquist clerk with a distinguished resume and an impeccable reputation, Judge Roberts is a terrific nominee to the Supreme Court,” said Brian McCabe, president of PFA. “Judge Roberts is a man of great character who deserves genuine consideration, not automatic attacks and partisan indignation based on nothing other than the fact he was nominated.”

Added McCabe: “Progress for America will defend Judge Roberts from the Left’s predictable and premeditated character assassination attempts.”

Update: AP, Federal Judge Roberts Is Bush’s Choice

President Bush chose federal appeals court judge John G. Roberts Jr. for a seat on the Supreme Court Tuesday, delighting Republicans while unsettling some Democrats with the selection of a young jurist with impeccable conservative credentials.
