Casey - Just another Lieberman
Despite reservations about several rulings by Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito, Democratic Senate candidate Robert P. Casey Jr. said yesterday that Alito should be confirmed because, ultimately, he is qualified.
Casey is strongly anti abortion just like his Dad was. Alito is the guy who's going to overturn Roe V. Wade. It's as simple as that.
"It's very disturbing and should worry, I think, Pennsylvania women and civil rights advocates and people concerned about unchecked executive power to wiretap and eavesdrop on Americans," Kate Michelman, former president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, told the Patriot News. Casey’s decision to support Alito shows that women “cannot count on a Senator Casey to protect our liberties,” Michelman continued. [more]Interestingly enough, if you go to John Kerry's website, you will read why John Kerry is opposing the appointment of Samuel Alito. Why then is John claiming Casey as an accomplishment?
In Pennsylvania, we've helped Bob Casey wage a strong Senate campaign that has incumbent Rick Santorum on his heels. Long a poster boy for mindless support of Bush policies and the right-wing agenda, Santorum is now scrambling to convince Pennsylvania voters otherwise.
