Columnist Robert Novak outs McCain

More double talk from Mr. Straight Talk Express

Supreme Court appointments resonate with conservatives. There are likely to be several vacancies to be filled within the next administration, as aging justices leave the bench.

Justice John Paul Stevens will celebrate his 88th birthday in April. Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be 75 this year. Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia are in their 70’s, and Stephen Breyer and David Souter are fast approaching their seventh decade.

Although McCain repeatedly tells town meetings, ”We’re going to have justices like (conservatives) Roberts and Alito,” other comments he has made belie those words, intended to win over conservatives votes.

Novak’s column does not raise concerns platform Republicans have about McCain, but instead, confirms them.

  1. Villanova says:

    In the final analysis, what is more important than appointments to the US Supreme Court? I don’t trust the Democrats or their buddy, McCain, in this arena. Remember John McCain and his Gang of 14?

  2. Mr. Conservative says:

    Villanova, you have expressed what I think on this too…

  3. James says:

    I agree. This is the most important tasks before any president—short of declaring war.
    Many of them have made disasterous picks. remember it was Ronald reagan who gave us Sandra O’Connor!
