GOP Candidates Criticize Judicial System

Thursday, 15 Dec 2011 10:22 PM


SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Newt Gingrich is promoting his plan to abolish left-leaning courts, and Rick Perry wants to do away with lifetime appointments for judges.

The Republicans seeking their party's presidential nomination uniformly criticized "judicial activism" at Thursday night's debate, and they pledged to appoint conservative judges.

Michele Bachmann says that both the White House and Congress have failed to keep judges in check and that the people need to take back power.

However, Ron Paul says that Gingrich's suggestion to subpoena judges before Congress or abolish whole courts goes too far.
