Obama on abortion:
FOR ME, THE GOAL RIGHT NOW SHOULD BE -- AND THIS IS WHERE I THINK WE CAN FIND COMMON GROUND AND BY THE WAY I HAVE NOW INSERTED THIS INTO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY PLATFORM IS HOW DO WE REDUCE THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS BECAUSE THE FACT IS THAT ALTHOUGH WE'VE HAD A PRESIDENT WHO IS OPPOSED TO ABORTIONS OVER THE LAST EIGHT YEARS, ABORTIONS HAVE NOT GONE DOWN.
Get your facts straight:
According to the Guttmacher Institute: "In 2005, 1.21 million abortions were performed, down from 1.31 million in 2000."
....Last I checked President Bush took office in 2001.
Obama on experience:
Rick Warren Q. WHICH EXISTING SUPREME COURT JUSTICE WOULD YOU NOT HAVE NOMINATED?
Obama A. THAT'S A GOOD ONE. THAT'S A GOOD ONE. I WOULD NOT HAVE NOMINATED CLARENCE THOMAS. I DON'T THINK THAT HE. I DON'T THINK THAT HE WAS A STRONG ENOUGH JURIST OR LEGAL THINKER AT THE TIME FOR THAT ELEVATION. SETTING ASIDE THE FACT THAT I PROFOUNDLY DISAGREE WITH HIS INTERPRETATION OF A LOT OF CONSTITUTION.
Basically, Justice Thomas was too inexperienced at the time of his nomination.
Aren't you a first term Senator? The least experienced of ALL major candidates for President in modern history.
Look for McCain problems soon!!
