There He Goes Again…

By Steven Taylor @ 12:01 pm

I saw this story yesteday, but didn’t have time to read it. Limbaugh made mention of the overall topic, so I went back gave it a look. Kerry Open to Anti-Abortion Judges.

First off, this strikes me as pure rhetoric. If the Democrats in Senate proved anything this term, it is that to the vast majority of them, the miniimum requirement to sit on the bench is that the nominee cannot even have the whiff of someone who might threatened abortion.

Second, there he goes again: He first notes that voting for Scalia was a mistake and then cites that vote as an example of how he could support pro-life nomineess.

Kerry, the presumptive nominee of a party that overwhelmingly favors a woman’s right to abortion, struck a moderate note as he lashed out at one of the high court’s most conservative justices, telling The Associated Press he regrets his 1986 vote to confirm Antonin Scalia.

“If you’re looking for me to admit that I made a mistake in my years in the Senate, there you go-there’s one,” said the four-term Massachusetts senator.

Yet in the same story he says:

Kerry said he has voted in favor of “any number of judges who are pro-life or pro-something else that I may not agree with,” some of whom were nominated by Republican presidents. “But I’m going to make sure we uphold what I believe are constitutional rights and I’m not going to pick somebody who’s going to undermine those rights.”

“Do they have to agree with me on everything? No,” Kerry said. Asked if they must agree with his abortion-rights views, he quickly added, “I will not appoint somebody with a 5-4 court who’s about to undo Roe v. Wade. I’ve said that before.”

“But that doesn’t mean that if that’s not the balance of the court I wouldn’t be prepared ultimately to appoint somebody to some court who has a different point of view. I’ve already voted for people like that. I voted for Judge Scalia.”

And, of course, this led to the need for a clarification:
Later, aides said “some court” was not a reference to the Supreme Court, only lower federal benches. Kerry tried to clear up the matter with a written statement that said: “I will not appoint anyone to the Supreme Court who will undo that right” to an abortion.

  1. My disgust for the man grows daily.

    His entire life is built around being able to say two different things at the same time (thus saying nothing). It’s reprehensible, and the fact that he’s the frontrunner for Presidency is frightening.
