I don't want to sound like a grassy knoll kinda guy...but nobody else has pointed this out. All the empathy issues have brought it to the forefront.


And I believe there is more.

y'all didn't read the article very well did you.

Let's have a quiz.

What was Obama's objection to Alito?
What was Obama's assertion that the "First and foremost quality" in Sotomayor is?

Who's John Galt.

Racist Spin at its best...

I love how the media is falling all over this.

She reportedly does not say it was a poor choice of words but wants to spin it into a "Life Experience" quote.

Well she said that because of her Latina Life Experience she will be able to render a better decision than a White Male.

Not because she went to Princeton and graduated at the top of her class or anything like that mind you. Simply based on the fact that she grew up a Latina.

And now cue the Liberal excuse making machine in 3...2...1...

Who's John Galt.

Zzzzzzzz........

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

^ I tend to agree, but if you think the Senators will sweep it under the rug, well then......

Plus, when did become un-PC to bash whitey? I didn't get the memo. If she can talk her way out of it in the hearings, then fine, let her in. If she can't come away with clean hands, then bu-bye lard ass! None of need a racist legislating from the bench and making unjust policy.

i don't think it was racism but proof positive that i don't want her on the bench as a judge should be making decisions based solely on the law.
