bork.jpgFormer federal judge Robert Bork, a hero to the Christian Right since his 1987 nomination to the Supreme Court was torpedoed largely over his opposition to Roe v. Wade, endorsed Mitt Romney today.
Here’s how Bork explained his decision:

“…No other candidate will do more to advance the conservative judicial movement than Governor Mitt Romney. He knows firsthand how the judicial branch can profoundly affect the future course of a state and a nation. I greatly admired his leadership in Massachusetts in the way that he responded to the activist court’s ruling legalizing same-sex ‘marriage.’ His leadership on the issue has served as a model to the nation on how to respect all of our citizens while respecting the rule of law at the same time.”
“Our next President may be called upon to make more than one Supreme Court nomination, and Governor Romney is committed to nominating judges who take their oath of office seriously and respect the rule of law in our nation.”

Bork is just the latest in a long line of Romney’s endorsement coups from the Christian Right elite, and God-o-Meter is impressed. But the real question now is whether Romney can win back some of the evangelical rank and file from Mike Huckabee.
