Bob Corker on Principles & Values
Republican Jr Senator
FORD: Attacking my father has no place in this campaign. You call my family a political machine -- I wonder if you feel the same about the Bush family. My father is too decent of a person to do any of the things that my opponent claims. I didnít think my opponent could stoop any lower into the gutter -- but it looks as if rock bottom hasnít been hit yet. My dad nor any member of my family has never lobbied me, nor would I allow them to. I work for the people of my district. Leave my family out of this -- this is between you and I, your ideas and your platform versus mine.
CORKER: Iíve never said a disparaging word; Iíve just pointed out the relationship.
"In the past month, many Senators have asked me about my judicial philosophy. It is simple: fidelity to the law. The task of a judge is not to make the law--it is to apply the law. And it is clear, I believe, that my record in two courts reflects my rigorous commitment to interpreting the Constitution according to its terms; interpreting statutes according to their terms and Congress's intent; and hewing faithfully to precedents established by the Supreme Court and my Circuit Court. In each case I have heard, I have applied the law to the facts at hand."
