    In the next four years, there will likely be at least 2 or 3 slots on the Supreme Court open up due to the age of the justices. Ruth Ginsberg is in questionable health and three othe justices (Kennedy, Scalia and Breyer) are all in their 70's.

    If you're a woman who values the ability to make reproductive choices on your own, you should vote for the President since he is committed to letting you keep your right to make that choice.

    It is the truth that the republican nominee has been on both sides of the abortion issue in the past. Where the nominee will end up when selecting a new justice and what litmus test he will apply to that selection is up in the air.

    Even a swing of one vote could overturn Roe v. Wade. If given the opportunity, conservatives will take that chance to overturn this landmark ruling.

    Just something to consider before you go into the polling place and fill out your ballot this November.

    This is Candycorn and I approved this message.

    I am more concerned with the economy of our nation and our deficit, getting people back to work. We have a president who promised to take care of these things in the first three years of his administration and it has not happened. Instead we have seen cronyism, class warfare and scandals abound.

    It's time for someone with the qualifications for leadership. Let's put the priorities straight.

    The Supreme Court is just one of the many reasons to re-elect President Obama. The court does not need more far right ideologs that spout Hannity's and Limpbaugh's talking points from the bench. 70% of the country opposed the Citizens United ruling. A President Romney would double down on that crap.

    Civil liberties are much more important than economics in my view. It should be the priority of every woman who values her reproductive choices to keep this President in office.


    Presidents of all stripes have let down the American public fiscally. If you want to talk about the deficit, Romney has submitted no plans that I have been made aware of (by you incidentally) to address the deficit. Remember all of the tax breaks you forwarded to me....? Tax breaks do a lot of things but addressing the deficit isn't one of them. As for cronyism, one could argue that the no-bid contracts that were prevalant in Iraq were the peak of such cronyism, could they not? Class warfare is something you guys are making up; others call it mathematics. As for scandals...all Presidents have them. The last Republican President had a VP that outed a CIA agent to get back at her husband, Pat Tillman's death and Jessica Lynch's capture were quickly swept under the rug, the terror alert "system" was manipulated for straight political gain etc...

    Both parties are out to lunch fiscally. Until we get rid of the politics, we're going to have this intractable situation.

    Supreme court nominees and the resulting decisions stand for decades after Presidents are long gone. Roe v. Wade is still allows a woman reproductive choices 30+ years after it was handed down. This is despite presidents that opposed the decision. Why? Because the court trumps the politics most of the time.

    Which is why it's more important today. Moreso than ever given the mood of the Congress and the rush to meddle in the lives of women.

    It isn't scare tactics, it is the truth. What is Romney's position on Abortion, by the way?
