Kasich Flubs

More foolish or cowardly kowtowing to the myth of judicial supremacy: The Weekly Standard’s Michael Warren reports that Ohio governor, and Republican presidential candidate, John Kasich was asked by a voter whether he would “respect the Roe versus Wade decision.” Kasich responded, “Obviously, it’s the law of the land now, and we live with the law of the land.”

No, Governor Kasich, the Constitution (together with federal laws “made in Pursuance thereof” and treaties) is the law of the land. A Supreme Court case that misreads the Constitution is not. Indeed, Roe is an affirmatively unconstitutional ruling that deserves no respect.
