The Return of Robert Bork

In an article in Monday's Washington Post about the search for a successor to retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, Robert Barnes and Anne E. Kornblut report:

John Payton, president of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, said there is another way to interpret the president's remarks: that Obama is looking for someone who would show some deference to "the legislative branch's prerogative in making laws that they think are for the benefit of the country."
Am I the only one struck by this as a description of Robert Bork?
