the corporate agenda

From Business Week
Why Big Business Likes Alito
The President's new Supreme Court nominee has been a staunch proponent of limits on legal liability, employee rights, and federal regulation


But one group is breathing a big sigh of relief: Corporate America. Of the dozen or so names on Bush's rumored short list of high court candidates, Alito ranked near the top for the boardroom set.

In the 800-plus opinions he has penned during his 15 years as a federal judge, Alito consistently has come down on the side of limiting corporate liability, limiting employee rights, and limiting federal regulation. "He would be a liability restrainer," says Stan Anderson, legal-affairs lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
This is the real reason Bush nominated "ScAlito," he's just following the orders of his corporate overlords. The fact that he hates women and doesn't care if cops illegally strip search 10 year old girls in their own home, is a just a bonus for the far right.
