Skip to comments.Why you should oppose Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court
Posted on 05/26/2009 8:21:57 AM PDT by AJKauf
Brace yourself. Take a Dramamine. Youll be hearing about Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor ad nauseam in the coming weeks. Did I say Sonia Sotomayor? I meant, of course, Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic nominee to the Supreme Court. It will be a constantly recurring epithet, like swift-footed Achilles, gray-eyed Athena, or (perhaps more to the point) honest Iago.
That Obama would nominate a female to succeed David Souter, who retires next month, was the unanimous opinion in scribe-osphere. And of course a minority female would be particular attractive to our politically correct president, even if this particular female minority was not the brightest bulb on the billboard. The air hadnt stopped vibrating with the news that Justice Souter was taking his quill pen and heading back to New Hampshire before Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic nominee to the Supreme Court, emerged as a front-runner on the SCOTUS racing form. Comments there noted her qualifications correct complement of chromosomes and suitable ethnic identity, above all, but also the requisite armory of left-liberal opinions without which no candidate for the Court under Obama need apply...

“No. He said close it, but have a plan.”
Well if there’s no workable plan (politically) then he isn’t supporting closing it.
He’s not the leader of the Gitmo rebellion unit.
Not the rubber stamp like NY/NJ senators.
Can we just now assume she met the first qualification of an Obama nominee?
Being a tax cheat that is..
PS - And the only reason Senator Porno said THAT was that he KNEW 90% of the Senate was going to oppose Obama on funding the closure of Gitmo. If the vote had appeared even remotely close on that issue, I am sure Mr. Jim “Born Toadying” Webb would have been back in Obama’s lap in a “New York minute”.
Yep, in 1990...
Of course she should opposed. She isn’t going to be stopped, nonetheless.
My main problem with her is that she’s too young. We’re not going to get anybody to her right nominated by Obama.
I do see one plus, however. If she isn’t that smart, and hires pals for her support team, her decisions may be so poorly reasoned that they can be more easily overturned if we should ever see brighter days.
But of one thing we can be absolutely sure.....that the Usurper vetted her in private chats and the full court accepting a case concerning his presidential legitimacy will never see the light of day.
She isn’t the first Hispanic Justice Benjamen Cardozo was the first not that anyone cares or would know since we don’t accurately portray history in this country. He was Portuguese and served on the bench from 1932 to 1938. Go figure. Another revisionist round of atta’ boys for the first black president. He and the rest of the liberals are gonna give themselves a dislocated shoulder ignoring the facts and patting themselves on the back.
And, she’s quite a looker, too boot !!!
The next ones he picks will definely turn the court more to the left. She can't be any worse than Souter!
Actually she was not considered the favorite of the left and did make the following comment with respect to the constitution.:
At her Senate confirmation hearing more than a decade ago, she said, “I don’t believe we should bend the Constitution under any circumstance. It says what it says. We should do honor to it.”
If you did NOT forget the < /sarcasm> tag, may I suggest you visit your nearest vision correction center.
If not for us we could have had Harriet Meires on the court. The (R)s will not fight. The corrupt "Two-Party Cartel" got another leftist to go along with a SC that won't even take on the legitimacy of Urkel. Yea, the elites are happy today.
I dont believe we should bend the Constitution under any circumstance. It says what it says. We should do honor to it.
She lied. ;-)
“Latina woman” as opposed to what — a Latina man?
Latina means woman.
I await the input of Soto’s cousin Rosa — the lady who worked for Caroline Kennedy. http://iowahawk.typepad.com/iowahawk/2008/12/senora-kennedy-is-make-very-good-senator.html
OK another moronic decision from Obama. But what did you expect from the guy? We get another third rate rack appointed to government “policy making” post and she could be in their for life. We have reaped what we soed. Now I wonder if all the Romney hater like what they get with this SCOTUS pick. And we could get others. Yes Romney (or any other Republican) might have lost as well but he had a much better chance against Obama.
Do you really think Romney would have appointed a choice this awful? This woman is the worst of the worst. I don’t’ know if Republicans can do much about this.
Pound on the people you know who appointed Obama. Let them know how stupid and foolish their decision was. This is terrible news and we are going to get more terrible news from the California State Supreme Court in about 5 minutes
She's pushing 60. How is that possibly too young?
I do see one plus, however. If she isn’t that smart...
Well cross that plus off your list, because she is *very* smart.
Tomato, tomaato. Look at her. She *looks* like she's pushing seventy already. Plus, she's a heart attack waiting to happen. I give her 10 years; 15 years at most.
It’s so sad. oops didn’t hillary say that.
