Dana Perino, White House deputy press secretary, said in response to Reid's remarks that Roberts was "clearly qualified in terms of intellect, ethics and temperament, and it would be unfortunate if some in the Senate use his confirmation to seek to change the historic approach to Supreme Court confirmations."Apparently no one in this White House can remember what "advice and consent" means.
