Obama Wants Sotomayor to Provide Some Justice

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.

    You certainly are entitled to your opinion – and that’s all this piece is. One could easily argue the Constitution was merely an impediment to the Bush/Cheney regime.

  2. ahrcanum Says:

    Your opinion seems factual…

  3. Juliette Says:

    hear hear p of v!

    And by the way Dad, discrimination against white men??? HAHAHAHAHAHAH. That is all.

    Your daughter

      Juliette has responded further in an email with the following:

      “Crackpots calling the kettle black”
      Race-baiting lowlights from Rush Limbaugh and Pat Buchanan, two of the pundits who say Sonia Sotomayor is racist.
      By Joe Conason
      http://www.salon.com/opinion/conason/2009/06/05/sotomayor/index.html

      I replied as follows:

      The Joe Conason piece and the earlier Gabriel Winant piece are nothing but ad hominem attacks; the dredging up of old anecdotes and quotations and then sprinkling on the authors’ idiotic theories and, in Winants’s case, psycho-babble. Neither author made the slightest effort to refute the charges made by Limbaugh, Buchanan and others because they cannot.

      Sonia Sotomayor has practically made a career out of her “wise latina”, “wise woman” shtick. The administration cannot explain away her statements as “a poor choice of words” because she has repeated them over and over in various speeches between 1994 and 2003. From Accuracy in Media we learn:

      The documents submitted by the judge confirm that she has been affiliated with two controversial organizations with racial if not racist agendas. She acknowledges that she has been a member or officer of the National Council of La Raza and the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund….Membership in such a group(s) helps explain why Sotomayor could vote to deny white firefighters their rights in the New Haven case now before the Supreme Court. Sotomayor seems to have not only a racist view that white people should be denied their equal rights but that America is itself a racist society and that judges have a duty to change it.

      I guess we can add sexist to her description as well. Worst of all, however, is her mocking statement that policy can be made from the bench. Supreme Court justices are supposed to interpret the law, not make law. Their most important duty is to respect the U.S. Constitution, which they are sworn to uphold.
