McCain Castigates Obama For Voting Against Chief Justice

Seems like Sen. Obama is everyone’s favorite target these days. But this article by Libby Quaid from the Asssociated Press shows a track record that seems all but unspoken about the presumptive GOP nominee:

McCain promised to appoint judges who, in the mold of Roberts and Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, are likely to limit the reach of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

“They would serve as the model for my own nominees if that responsibility falls to me,” McCain said .

McCain often is viewed as an independent because he antagonizes fellow Republicans and likes to work with Democrats. Some conservatives dislike his decision to join the “Gang of 14,” … who averted a Senate showdown over whether filibusters could be used against Bush judicial nominees.

On Monday, McCain told reporters he didn’t know whether conservatives would forgive him for that decision.

“You’ll have to ask them, but I think I was right to do it; we got all but two of the president’s nominees through the Senate,” McCain said.

McCain has repeatedly voted against federal funding for abortion

He also has cast conservative votes on judges. In fact, McCain has never voted against a Republican nominee for the Supreme Court or federal courts, the Democratic National Committee pointed out.

I guarantee that neither Sen. Clinton nor Sen. Obama has a track record or a Presidential platform like this one.
