“Bork deserves to be remembered by a grateful nation for the services he rendered in preventing disarray in the Justice Department at a moment of unprecedented assault on the rule of law, and for facilitating the removal of a president during Washington days that were darker than most people today can imagine. His book confirms the axiom that our ignorance of history makes us libel our own times.”
“Robert Bork was a remarkable American patriot. Absolutely a fascinating book.”
While certainly Judge Bork’s confirmation struggle was an important political inflection point, what he did for the life of the law in this country and in defense of the Constitution greatly overshadows that one moment.
