Here’s one more reason not to vote for Barack Obama, as any more were needed. According to his campaign, Mr. Obama, if elected to the presidency, has every intention of seating liberal, activist judges.
"Barack Obama," explained spokesman Tommy Vietor, "has always believed that our courts should stand up for social and economic justice, and what’s truly elitist is to appoint judges who will protect the powerful and leave ordinary Americans to fend for themselves."
Wrong, wrong, wrong. A judge’s responsibility is to interpret the law as established by the legislature as fairly and impartially as humanly possible. It is not to make new law, to right current or historical inequities, or to promote any ideological agenda, whether left or right.
David Harsanyi again:
"Obama, a graduate of Harvard Law School and a former lecturer on constitutional law at the University of Chicago, knows full well that the Supreme Court isn’t charged with upholding subjective world views"
Barack Obama believes otherwise and demonstrates the true meaning of elitism: an unquestioning assumption that one’s ideological agenda is superior to that of others, particularly the status quo, which has society’s de facto approval.
Vote McCain, save yourself 4 years of pain – to say nothing of the 2 decades of Supreme Court follies that would follow Obama’s appointment of another John Paul Stevens.
