Obama's Litmus-Free Litmus Test

Senator Obama responded to McCain's statement about not imposing a litmus test on Supreme Court nominees, Obama offered the most incredulous response possible.

"I agree that we should not impose a litmus test."

This from the man who voted against both Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito in their confirmations purely upon his adherence to a litmus test.

Unbelievably disingenuous. And I wonder if that little moment was caught by anyone...

Correct me if I'm wrong (did I really need to say that?) but didn't John McCain say, and I paraphrase,

"I don't believe in a Roe v. Wade litmus test. I would base my choices on judicial temperament. And by the way any judge who would uphold Roe v. Wade doesn't have the right temperament."

John Roberts had a long established record as a corporate lawyer for corporate polluters involved in causing substantial environmental damage. This alone was a reasonable basis to reject his nomination as a justice who would side with corporate polluters and not the average citizen's rights to clean water or air.

Everyone already knows that this is what Obumble is like, but its too late in the Ozombification process for it to matter much.
