Sen. Obama voted against Justice Breyer and Justice Roberts on the grounds that they didn’t meet his ideological standards. That’s not the way we should judge these nominees. Elections have consequences. They should be judged on their qualifications. And so that’s what I will do.
Justice Stephen Breyer was confirmed to the Supreme Court in 1994, 7 years before Barack Obama was in the Senate. McCain’s lying when he says Obama voted against Breyer’s confirmation.
