Sen. Jeff Sessions Could Support Court Nominee with "Gay Tendencies" (Video)
ConservativeXpress ^ | 5/7/09

Posted on 05/07/2009 11:18:47 AM PDT by DrGop0821

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) appeared this morning on "Morning Joe".

"Gay tendencies"? What the... this is why people consider Republicans homophobic, intolerant, etc.

Sure, I'm glad Sessions will look at someone's legal qualifications over anything else, but there had to be a better way to answer the question without using those words. What an idiot.

I wish he had said, “What a stupid question, why are you focused on someone’s sexuality?”

This is all very disturbing, more and more it looks like this candidate is going to be chosen for what their sexual preference is and not their law qualifications...

What the hell is going on in this country?

Yeah. How gay?

Are we talking "Liberace gay", or just mildly flaming?

In response to the gay-diversity question, Sen Sessions gave a good answer.

"We shouldn't be thinking like that for the United States Supreme Court."

More troubling is Sessions remark to Neil Cavuto, that he'd vote for a pro-abortion candidate. That is very troubling especially coming from such a staunch social conservative.

I could accept someone as flaming as Paul Lynde if he was a Constitutionalist who interpreted the law instead of just making it up. (Now I can’t get the image of the Supreme Court in the Hollywood Squares out of my head. I’ll take Justice Scalia to block.)

The liberal reporter Question should not have been asked....and if asked it should have not been answered.
Its a GOTCHA question........Gay is not a Supreme court issue.....Constitutional Law is the issue.
Put a Gay on the Bench.....and due to AIDS he may be a short term judge in the long run ?

Whoa.

Two Paul Lynde posts in less than 20 seconds.

Uncanny.

Is this a ‘half a loaf’ argument?

Don’t tell, don’t judge?

Yes, but I think what he said was that it wasn’t the person’s personal opinion on something, but how they would interpret the Constitution. In theory this is correct, someone’s personal opinion shouldn’t matter. On the other hand, in reality, I’m not sure almost all turn their interpretation of the Constitution to fit their belief.

ROFL! Actually, he might have been better on the SC than some of the judges we’ve had. At least he was funny...

Well, if Obama looks for empathetic justices, why wouldn’t Pere Hilton and others qualify for the top court of the land?

Then we’d need a justice for red-headed step children and...

So long, Jeff. You must be ready to retire. The only thing worse he could say would be something like "football doesn't matter in Alabama".

Well, Sessions knows that 0bama is going to choose a Pro-Death Candidate, so if that’s the ONLY thing hindering an otherwise good choice, he’ll vote for that person. I think that’s what Sessions was saying.

I’m thinking that if they can find ANYTHING to disqualify a candidate other than that the candidate is Pro-Death/Abortion, they’ll use that to vote against him or her.

As for the Gay issue. As long as he or she is not soliciting other Judges for a love-in-fest, and the person doesn’t flaunt it while on the bench . . . who cares? If that person gets blackmailed because he or she failed to ‘come out’ before approval, it would behoove the person to admit to being gay as an answer to the blackmailer. Take the wind out of his sails.

Obama isn’t about to name an acceptable jurist to sit on the SCOTUS. At least not in the eyes of conservatives and traditionalists. Whatever logic Sessions is employing to the abortion issue is seriously flawed. His rationale with respect to homosexuals, makes more sense.

If it was up to me, I’d rather not have a pro-abortion candidate or a homosexual sitting on the high court.
