McCain/Obama - Fundamental Differences In Judicial Matters

There are many areas where John McCain and Barack Obama disagree. One of those areas deals with judicial matters. The FRC asked both candidates the following question:

Would you appoint as judges men and women who interpret a law in accordance with their personal beliefs, or apply it as written whether they would have written it that way themselves or not?

McCain's answer: Apply as written
Obama's answer: Personal beliefs

It's a scary thought to think of Obama appointing judges that make legal decisions based on personal beliefs. These are the judges that are not strict constitutionalists. They are the judges that legislate from the bench.

John McCain would appoint Supreme Court judges that would apply constitutional law based on the U.S. Constitution, not on how they feel about a certain law or what they consider should be law.

This is another fundamental difference between the two candidates and another reason to support John McCain for President.
