I'm not placated by this statement, are you?

During the senate hearing on his nomination for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts likened himself to a baseball umpire:

And using a baseball metaphor, he compared his judicial role to that of an umpire, saying, "My job is to call balls and strikes, not pitch or bat."

As a former soccer referee and current player, I know that some referees and umpires are amazingly good and others suck. Comparing yourself to sports officials does not ease my mind. Try answering the questions that'll be directed toward you and providing documents that the committee is requesting.
