Bush says won't base court decision on abortion - Yahoo! News|
President Bush said on Wednesday he would not choose his Supreme Court candidate based on their position on specific issues such as abortion or gay marriage.
"There will be no litmus test," he said, repeating his position during his 2000 and 2004 presidential campaigns.Whatever.
In Washington, Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, doubted Bush's pledge not to give candidates a litmus test on abortion.Exactly.
"This president has no credibility -- to date, he has appointed more than 200 judges to the federal courts -- not one of whom supported a woman's right to choose," she said.
But Democrats and interest groups on the left promise a fight to block any nominee they view as too conservative.They'd better. This one is too important to fuck up.
