Barack's almost 100% liberal standing as Senator speaks for itself, if given the chance he WILL elect judges to the courts who represent HIS views. And this past week SCOTUS reminded us that when it comes to the law, liberals care much more about the needs of criminals than they do the victims:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) today decried Thursday's Supreme Court ruling granting foreign terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay the right to challenge their detention in civilian courts, which he called "one of the worst decisions in the history of this country."Indeed, SCOTUS' 5-4 decision giving terrorists and their helpers some rights in U.S. civil courts puts the glare back on national security. Advantage: John McCain.
McCain -- who has long maintained the federal government should close Guantanamo Bay detention center -- said Congress made a distinction between those imprisoned there and U.S. civilians in the law he helped write, the Military Commissions Act of 2006.
"We made it very clear these are enemy combatants," he said. "They have not, and never have been, given the rights of citizens of this country." The crowd of more than 1,000 supporters, packed into a gym at Burlington County College, exploded into applause at McCain's comments.
