A transcript is as follows:
DAVID BRODY: Are you scratching your head a bit on John Roberts? We’re not going to call him David Souter at this moment, but conservatives have a track record of having an issue with Supreme Court justices that we thought were going to be a dependable vote. When I’m speaking about a trustworthy vote, I’m discussing to stick to conservative principles.
VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE: We have fantastic respect for the organization of the Supreme Court in the United States, however Chief Justice John Roberts has actually been a disappointment to conservatives. Whether it be the Obamacare choice or whether it be a wave of current choices all the way through Calvary Chapel, it’s a suggestion of simply how important this election is for the future of the Supreme Court.
