Skip to comments.VIDEO: Sotomayor Explains "Wise Latina" Remark
Posted on 07/14/2009 7:13:15 AM PDT by ianschwartz
"No words I have ever spoken or written have received so much attention," Sotomayor began.
Judge Sotomayor says she was telling an audience that she was trying to inspire a group to be "anything they wanted to become" through her own experiences.
"I do not believe that any ethnic, racial or gender group has an advantage in sound judging," Sotomayor explained. "I do believe that every person has an equal opportunity to be a good and wise judge regardless of their background or life experiences," she concluded.

“I do not believe that any ethnic, racial or gender group has an advantage in sound judging,” Sotomayor explained.”
Yet, you said you did. Funny....
Racist. Radical. Liberal. Socialist.
Essentially, she’s acknowledging she’s poorly spoken and inarticulate so she doesn’t look like a bigot and a liar.
You forgot abject liar
lying under oath is no big deal to libs..
truth is a variable thing, there is no right or wrong...
This woman will be on the bench. The democrat party has the majority and is filibuster proof.
It's all a show my FReeper friends, it's all a show.
Let's just concentrate on the 2010 congressional election and get out the vote.
This woman could show up in her underwear, eating a dead baby and toss the remains on the senator's desks and they would vote her in.
She will not do that, but it would take all of that and maybe a speech indicating that she wasn't in favor of abortion in order to keep her from the SCOTUS.
I would respect her if she would just admit it was a racist statement, that she has learned her lesson, and now rejects such idiotic thinking.
The Repubs are publically pretending to be tough with her, while the backroom chatter is supportive of her nomination. Who loses? Conservatives....
Just fired off a version of this to Isakson and Chambliss. Suggest you let YOUR guys hear from YOU ASAP!!!!
A vote AGAINST Sonia Sotomayor will be a vote FOR principle.
Regardless of her testimony and responses, she is a dangerous leftist. And the argument by the increasingly silly and irrelevant Lindsey Graham that she is no worse than Souter is akin to a doctor telling you that your lung cancer is cured but you have leukemia. I heard Graham remark that The President has a right to get the people he wants. That logic says that if Obama WANTS to abolish an elected legislature for a politbureau of his fellow Chicago thugs which he is in the process of doing with his czars, — you should simply roll over, move on and let him have it. Good grief!!
Should you be tempted to vote FOR her to curry favor with Georgias large Hispanic population, you will be making a HUGE error in judgment. Thousands of them are non-citizens, here in violation of immigration laws and, in light of the recent idiotic Justice Department ruling that Georgia may NOT require voters to show ID, ACORN (or whatever they are calling themselves today) will drag them to the polls on election day anyway. And if you think they will vote for you because you supported Sotomayor, you had better think again: ACORN WILL INSTRUCT THEM VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRAT OR THEY WONT GET THE PROMISED 20 BUCKS, PACK OF SMOKES OR WHATEVER.
VOTE NO ON SOTOMAYOR!

Basically she said she was talking to a group of hispanics when she made that remark, but now she’s talking to white men so she’s saying something entirely different. Why are we so stubborn we can’t undertand that? ;^)
*loud cough* Bulls**t
Sexist racist damage control - to be redacted after appointment.
Save our dollars until after she is appointed, as she probably will. Then mail her lots of boxes of candy.
Words have meaning.
You forgot abject liar...
Yes, I did. Should have been at the top of the list. Another Obama-ite qualification on any resume he considers....
she is not very intelligent....
so she attempts to speak out of both sides of her mouth and we are supposed to believe her NOW, when she is vying for a seat on SCOTUS, not back when she had nothing to hide.
