Over at Gullyborg, a right-wing Oregon blog, putative Oregon Supreme Court candidate Jack Roberts gives a long interview about his views. It's long, but here's a few key snippets:
On Oregon Right to Life: "I’ve always had a good relationship with them because I’ve always respected their goals and understand their position"
On blogs: "Recently, to keep up with the other side, I’ve been reading Blue Oregon."
On free speech: "I think that we have to be able to formulate a rule of law that most people in this state can understand and accept, and I don’t think we’re there as it relates to free speech… People understand that we have broader protection here and they wanted that. But I still think you ought to have a rule that is understandable and can be communicated to people, and I don’t think the current rule that we have makes sense."
On the court: "Gullyborg: In one sentence, why does the Supreme Court of Oregon need Jack Roberts? Jack: To bring common sense back to the court. Gullyborg: Are you saying there isn't any common sense on the court? Jack: Let’s just say they can always use more."
On Gene Hallman, who is also running: "He is certainly respected and well-qualified."
On himself: "I don’t have any judicial experience."
