Opening statement - Roberts

Using MS Word to summarize Roberts' opening statement:
Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman, Senator Leahy, and members of the committee.
Judges and justices are servants of the law, not the other way around. Judges are like umpires. Umpires don't make the rules; they apply them.

The role of an umpire and a judge is critical. It is that rule of law that protects the rights and liberties of all Americans. Because without the rule of law, any rights are meaningless.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

Thank you, members of the committee.
