Death in the family. Sad, yes. But when someone lives in to their 90s and have been in reasonably good shape until the last year or so, that person has had a good, long life. God bless her and I know she’s in a better place with her husband and son.

Back to politics. So Obummer picked a raging liberal judge for the SC. Like no one saw this coming. However before any liberals jump up and down with too much glee note that he didn’t pick her because she was the most qualified. No doubt she’s been on the bench in various roles and I’d hope she’d have the education. Of course, Odummer was some kind of law professor whose subject was the Constitution and he’s a freaking moron on that subject but I digress. Anyway, libtards are peeing all over themselves with this nomination but should stop for a minute and think. Tall order I know but why would he have picked a Hispanic woman? Because he needed to that’s why. Odummer didn’t get the Hispanic vote during the primaries so he’s pandering to a voting bloc–that’s all. The fact that she’s female is a bonus.
Now let’s look at a few comments she’s made:
“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

Let’s replace that with the following:
“I would hope that a wise white man with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a black/hispanic male who hasn’t lived that life.”

What if Roberts, or Alito had ever uttered something so ridiculous? They didn’t but she did and she gets a pass???? Folks, things you say are very telling about your views. For a judge to utter such garbage tells me she’s unfit to sit on the highest court in the land and make judgements on Constitutional law.

At least one liberal doesn’t think she’s the right person for the job. Jeffrey Rosen, the legal affairs editor for The New Republic called her a “kind of a bully on the bench” who “has an inflated opinion of herself”. He should know. He was a clerk for another judge at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit where Sotomayer is right now.
OK…so that’s one man’s opinion. It may be a very accurate character portrait of this woman too.

Next up we have this on her ‘environmentalist’ leanings. In a decision she issued in 2007, she sided with an extreme ‘environmentalist’ group over whether cost-benefit analysis should be used in determining which technology to use for power plant cooling water intake structures in relation to the environment. A decision that was later overturned by the Supreme Court this year. Clearly she sided with the extremists and her decision would have cost consumers billions more each year because power plants would have had to retrofit their sites. That’s unacceptable.

One thing is clear. Obama’s choice is not based on anything other than a desire to pander to a demographic while alienating another that he doesn’t need. I thought he was a uniter?
Will she be confirmed? Probably. But only as one poster said because of sheer numbers of Democrats. Should she be confirmed? No. No based on her belief systems and views. You do not insert your personal prejudices over the Constitution and use that power to make “policy” as she believes. My prayer is the vetting process for her will be just as brutal as any other judge has received.
