If you need any evidence that politicians are nothing but hack opportunists I present the following evidence.
"We need to recognize, because Judge Alito will be confirmed, that, if we're going to oppose a nominee that we've got to persuade the American people that, in fact, their values are at stake," Obama said.
"There is an over-reliance on the part of Democrats for procedural maneuvers," he told ABC's "This Week."
"There's one way to guarantee that the judges who are appointed to the Supreme Court are judges that reflect our values. And that's to win elections," Obama said.
What’s so bad about that you say? That seems like a principled opposition to a man that has very different political views. If this were still Sunday I would agree with you. On Monday Obama voted no to end debate on the nomination – or in other words to attempt to filibuster the nomination.
I’m not sure if Obama wanted to ensure that he came down on both sides of the issue, fell captive to the far-left KOS-ites or needed to make some backroom deals to ensure support for his certain Presidential run in ’08. Whatever the reason, one thing is certain Obama is a hack.
