Statement on the Supreme Court Nomination of Robert H. Bork

 

September 19, 1987

 

Judge Robert Bork has shown in his calm, direct, and candid answers that he is eminently qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. If the Senate uses the standards it should -- integrity, qualifications, and temperament -- it will certainly move quickly, once the Judiciary Committee hearings are completed, to confirm Judge Bork.
