Sen. McCain says that he would appoint "strict constructionist" judges if he were president. Oh really? Sorry McCain, your record speaks so loudly, I can't hear your election campaign rhetoric. Just another reason why a vote for McCain isn't much different than one for Hillary or Obama.

That is why I am not voting for any of those mentioned in your question. I am backing Ron Paul and am one of his Delegates.

I wanna be a delegate lol. Especially for Ron Paul because he is the only presidential nominee that I can back. He and I have very similar views.

Lancingboy: I'm glad there is a candidate that closely matches your views on the issues. This time, there are none for me. We'll see what the other parties have to offer.

It sounds great. But the truth is, take one look at McCain's record and you will see he will do whatever it takes to get his name on a winning side. He knows as well as you and I that if elected, and Dems control the House and the Senate, he will have to appoint those judged that can be approved and we know that those are not Constitutionalists. McCain will not fight for choices that won't win.

Exactly! The Constitution means little to nothing to him.

I'm not sure that it means nothing. I believe he thinks it is a document that is living and breathing and the language (like his views) can be molded to fit whatever situation is popular at the moment. This may truly be an election between the ultra-liberal and the liberal.

If he believes it is dependent on the whims of the day, he doesn't believe in it at all.

ParaTed the question should be will Pres. McRino be able to get strict constructionist judges elected. Do you remeber when Regean nominated Bork, how did that work out. We got Kennedy. Why well I will tell you, because Democrats do not believe that Republicans have the right to to appoint conservative judges, even though they believe that they(liberals) have the right to appiont the most Liberal judges. If McRino win the Pres. the Democrats will hold onto the Senate, and with gains. So Kennedy might be the best we can get.

What I'm saying, will one of the "gang of 14" even consider a strict constructionist for nomination.

I must disagree with this one, there is a huge different between McCain and Obama or Hillary, especially when it comes to the type of judges that would be appointed. I fear if McCain were to get in that would be the end of a woman's right to choose and the world would finally be "safe" from those pesky gays! Annie

Look at how he reacted to the conservative nominees from Prs. Bush. I doubt a Prs. McCain would nominate anyone unless he was confident they would be approved with no controversies. As long as the Democrats hold congress, I'm guessing he'll continue to "reach across the aisle" for Democrat approval. I doubt he cares as much about the Constitution as he cares about getting along.
