Assuming you watched the 3rd and final presidential debate last night, can you explain the Republican position on the judicial branch? On the one hand, Kerry admitted to saying he would not appoint a judge who was against Roe vs. Wade. The Republicans latched onto this and were saying he had a litmus test for judicial appointments. Fair enough. He does. Bush clearly made the point that this was not an issue for Presidents. That the judicial branch should decide this issue without executive influence. It’s hard to argue that philosophy, although there’s not much evidence he practices that.
Yet at a different point in the debate, Bush made the point that marriage had to be redefined by constitutional amendment because the judicial branch of government couldn’t be trusted.
Which is it George?
