Tellingly, Obama slipped and showed his hypocrisy when talking about United States Supreme Court Justices during the Saddleback Forum.

Have you been wondering why rookie United States Senator and presumptive 2008 Democrat presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. avoided the ten Townhall debates around the country that veteran United States Senator and presumptive 2008 Republican presidential candidate John Sidney McCain proposed?

The joint appearances by Obama and McCain at the Saddleback Forum hosted by Rev. Rick Warren showed that McCain is ready to be President of the United States and Obama is not fit to be.

Obama IS a superb tele-prompter reader.

But the position at stake is President of the United States, not news reader for NBC News.

Obama wants to substitute audacity for ability, presumption for preparation and eagerness for experience.

That's a recipe for disaster.

Tellingly, Obama slipped and showed his hypocrisy when talking about United States Supreme Court Justices during the Saddleback Forum.

Rev. Warren asked Obama, "which existing Supreme Court justice would you not have nominated?"

Obama chose Justice Clarence Thomas.

That's not a surprise: a conservative black man who thinks for himself, embraces constitutional fidelity and eschews judicial activism and legislating from the bench is anathema to Obama and his ardent supporters.


"From 1974 to 1977, Thomas was an Assistant Attorney General of Missouri under then State Attorney General John Danforth. When Danforth was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1976 to 1979, Thomas left to become an attorney with Monsanto in St. Louis, Missouri. He returned to work for Danforth from 1979 to 1981 as a Legislative Assistant....

"In 1981, he joined the Reagan administration. From 1981 to 1982, he served as Assistant Secretary of Education for the Office of Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education. From 1982 to 1990 he was Chairman of the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission....

"In 1990, President George H. W. Bush appointed Thomas to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit."

Obama to Rev. Warren on why he disapproved of Justice Thomas: "I don't think he was an exp . . . a strong enough jurist or legal thinker at the time for that elevation."

That's right: inexperienced Obama, who aspires to be President anyway, swallowed most of the word "experienced" that he started to say.

Rev. Warren did not ask Obama that if he did not consider Justice Thomas experienced enough to be elevated from federal appellate court judge to Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, one of nine Justices, why did he consider himself experienced enough to be elevated from one of one hundred United States Senators to become the one President of the United States.

If Rev. Warren had asked the question, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's remote chance of being nominated as the Democrat presidential candidate at the upcoming convention would have increased greatly.

National Review's Kathryn Jean Lopez on the hypocrisy of Obama's choice of Justice Thomas:

"Was it that Barack Obama didn't like Justice Thomas's vote on the recent child-rapist case, Kennedy v. Louisiana? No, that couldn't be it. Barack Obama agreed with Thomas on that decision. Justice Ginsburg, meanwhile — a liberal favorite on the Court, whom John McCain listed as one of his least favorite justices during the same forum — opposed giving child rapists the death penalty. So what's so wrong about Thomas and so right about, say, Ginsberg, Senator Obama? Explain the logic. He can't, of course, and still win an election — which is why he agreed with Thomas."

Stated simply, Obama is a phony trying to fool the voters to win the power of the Presidency.

Lopez: "Was it that Barack Obama didn't like Justice Thomas's vote on the recent D.C. gun-ban case? Nope; that couldn't be it either. Barack Obama wound up ultimately agreeing with Thomas and the majority on that one too.

"Justice Ginsburg, on the other hand, had issues with the Second Amendment in that case. But you would nominate Justice Ginsburg, Senator Obama?"

The truth is that Obama was FOR the draconian D.C. gun-ban before he was against it...and he publicly became against it after his private remark about rural Americans clinging to religion and guns out of bitterness over economic circumstances was made public."

The truth is that Obama is a political panderer who cannot be trusted.
