What is the problem with Sotomayor? Maybe you should read the thread about her here.
- There are the racist comments (she can make a better decision than a white man)
- There is the 60% reversal rate
- Her membership in "La Raza" (a group that's promoted driver's licenses for illegal aliens, amnesty programs, and no immigration law enforcement by local and state police.)
- Her stated belief that policy is made by the courts
Show me where the racism is in her record as Judge. You are fixated on a comment that was little more than her pumping her own tires in a field dominated by white men in front of an audience sympathetic to her cause and ethnic origins. Was it the best thing to say? Probably not. She should have been a little less direct - something like "I think my life has qualified me to make legal decisions better than other people who have not experienced a life of struggling from humble origins" that would get the same message across without exciting and exposing her to the 8-year-later, right wing nut job paranoia about a Black American as President nominating her for the Supreme Court trying to turn the statement into a political correctness argument for calling her a racist. Political correctness, the new foundation of the right wing. White men are so picked on.
So, your next superficial attack is she has a reversal rate of 60%, that is 3 of 5 cases, by the Supreme Court. Tell us if you think that is a poor record compared to, say, other judges? The Supreme Court selects cases to review from many, turning most down. They would appear to select cases they think should be turned down about 75% of the time. So, Sotomayor is doing better than average. Oh, and remember the majority of Supreme Court Justices were probably white guys, so they likely got it wrong on one or two, or maybe even all those reversals.
So, being a member of La Raza is troubling you? Really? A human rights group advocating for Hispanics in the US? That really gets under your skin, eh? A reason to overlook her is that La Raza favors treating the Hispanic human beings with dignity and respect once the reality of the situation is that they are in the United States, working and paying taxes, even if the got here and remain here outside the legal route that is not enforced? I get it. They aren't citizens so we should round them up and waterboard them for practice.
Her stated belief about policy being made by the courts is nothing more than plain speaking truth. Laws are interpreted in the context of the Constitution in the courts. That defines policy whether you like it or not.
How about you go through her record as a judge and show how her integrity in that position was compromised by her racism?
