She’s Brilliant, She’s Qualified, I Want to See Her Confirmed, I Want Her Walking Up Those Marble Steps and Starting to Provide Some Justice!
Thus spake Barack Obama, about Sonia Sotomayor, to the Los Angeles elite where he also touted his accomplishments so far. (here’s the video)
…and the justice to be provided by Ms. Sotomayor is Obama’s justice. As Patrick J. Buchanan points out:
When you think about it, Sonia Sotomayor is the perfect pick for the Supreme Court — in Barack Obama’s America.
Like Obama, himself a beneficiary of affirmative action, she thinks “Latina women,” because of their life experience, make better judicial decisions than white men, that discrimination against white men to advance people of color is what America is all about, that appellate courts are “where policy is made” in the United States.
To those who believe the depiction of our first Hispanic justice as an anti-white liberal judicial activist, hearken to her own words.
Speaking at Berkeley in 2001, Sonia told her audience, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion (as a judge) than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”…. Speaking at Duke in 2005, Sotomayor declared: “(The) court of appeals is where policy is made. I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don’t make law I know.” She and the audience joined in the laughter.
Who were they laughing at? Americans who still believe the role of judges is to apply the Constitution as the Framers intended and to interpret the law as written by our elected legislators.
In Barack Obama’s America, that is so yesterday.
Sadly this is no laughing matter. Barack Obama believes the U.S. Constitution is an impediment, an obstacle, to the attainment of his socialist agenda. So bye bye U.S. Constitution and hello another activist judge in our highest court. Sotomayor is a racist political hack destined for a lifetime sinecure, one of nine justices who are sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution.
