Obama disagrees with liberal justices on death penalty case

Barack Obama apparently disagrees with the 5-4 decision declaring unconstitutional the application of the death penalty to the crime of child rape.

Problem is, the only four dissenting votes came from the justices who fit the mold that Obama would reject if and when he is president.

Power Line suggests that Obama is engaged in election-year posturing. The alternative, evidently, is that Obama intends to nominate justices who will interpret the Constitution in a manner to which he objects.
