BREAKING: It's Sonia Sotomayor for Supreme Court

Breitbart has the details:

President Barack Obama tapped federal appeals judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court on Tuesday, officials said, making her the first Hispanic in history picked to wear the robes of a justice.

If confirmed by the Senate, Sotomayor, 54, would succeed retiring Justice David Souter. Two officials described Obama's decision on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement had been made.

Administration officials say Sotomayor would bring more judicial experience to the Supreme Court than any justice confirmed in the past 70 years.

A formal announcement was expected at midmorning.

Obama had said publicly he wanted a justice who combined intellect and empathy--the ability to understand the troubles of everyday Americans.

Democrats hold a large majority in the Senate, and barring the unexpected, Sotomayor's confirmation should be assured.

If approved, she would join Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as the second woman on the current court.

Sotomayor is a self-described "Newyorkrican" who grew up in a Bronx housing project after her parents moved to New York from Puerto Rico. She has dealt with diabetes since age 8 and lost her father at age 9, growing up under the care of her mother in humble surroundings. As a girl, inspired by the Perry Mason television show, she knew she wanted to be a judge.

The political spin added by the press to the Sotomayor nomination seems to be: Republicans can't oppose her because she is Hispanic -- if they do, they are RAAAAAAACISTS!!

But remember this embarrassing little memo from Nov. 2001, sent by the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee (Ted Kennedy) to Sen. Dick Durbin:

"The groups singled out three--Jeffrey Sutton (6th Circuit); Priscilla Owen (5th Circuit); and Caroline [sic] Kuhl (9th Circuit)--as a potential nominee for a contentious hearing early next year, with a [sic] eye toward voting him or her down in Committee. They also identified Miguel Estrada (D.C. Circuit) as especially dangerous, because he has a minimal paper trail, he is Latino, and the White House seems to be grooming him for a Supreme Court appointment. They want to hold Estrada off as long as possible."

I wonder if anyone in the mainstream press will dare bring up this incredible example of racism by Senate Democrats, when the "wrong" Hispanic was a potential nominee for the SCOTUS?

...

Sotomayor also seems very likely to be able to fulfill President Obama's controversial desire to appoint an "empathetic" Supreme Court justice. The New York Times has published a good accounting of Sotomayor's statements about the objectivity of the judicial system and the degree to which a judge's background (specifically white males vs. other minorities) affects their rulings.

Much of what Sotomayor says ("I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male..." etc.) can be taken out of context in order to appear very radical, but the bulk of her comments seem to stem more from a postmodern intellectual's desire to question everything and then posit one's own answers, rather than an out-of-control social justice agenda.

Still, it is unsettling to consider a future Supreme Court where the worldview and life experience of a Justice is expected to be placed on equal footing with the rule of law. The potential for abuse in such a system is staggering.

Kim adds: In spite of her vast experience and impressive education, there is one very big reason why she should not be confirmed, and that is she outed herself as an activist judge. She was caught on tape saying that policy is made at the appeals court level. She immediately backtracked from her statement once she realized what she let slip, but it was there for everyone to see and hear:

As usual for the left, Sotomayor's rulings are unbounded by common sense, but long on activism.

In 1998 the Family Research Council named Sotomayor as the recipient of its Court Jester Award, mocking her decision to extend the application of the Americans With Disabilities Act to a woman who had cited her own inability to read as the "handicap" that caused her to fail the New York State bar exam several times.

marc:

The statue depicting Justice wearing a blindfold and holding the scales is meant to portray a judicial ideal of impartiality and truth.

I feel relatively certain "jomo" does not know of the existence of said stature nor give one wit about "impartiality and truth."

Be honest "jomo," just admit openly you'd be very much in favor of reparations be paid - monetarily or policy wise - in similar fashion to what some race-bating African Americans desire for centuries-old policies of discrimination.

What you, and sadly judge Sotomayor want is reverse discrimination, not equality.

To further epador's point - "He wants a fight and he wants it now to distract from his other machinations," I have little doubt distraction is part of the equation.

That said, I believe he's chosen the most radical candidate of those believed to be on "the list" and done so while he can ride the wave of his current popularity.

He's "all in" as a poker player would say knowing full well it may be his last best chance at getting an "empathetic" ("DAMN the Constitution, full speed ahead with our agenda!") judge confirmed.

The video should be replayed several times a day. Several things are obvious:

1. This idiot either doesn't understand what her job is, or she simply doesn't like the restrictions of the job. She doesn't want to be a judge, she wants to be one of Plato's philosopher-kings, making the law as well as enforcing the law.
2. The lack of integrity on display is revolting. She's openly laughing at the need to hide her true intentions. After all, the peasants might prefer to have their elected officials making policy.
3. You also have to love the cowardice on display. She cannot and will not defend her position, so instead she'll just lie about her intentions and hope she doesn't get caught. And her audience laughs along and the thinly-disguised act that should be plenty good enough to fool the witless rubes.

Gee what exactly could Bush have done right at that second to ensure the nation's safety? Intelligence agencies were gathering intelligence, the military was making decisions as to what their troops should be doing, and other agencies were following their contigency plans which is why they are called CONTIGENCY PLANS. THe worst thing that could have happened on 911 is for the President (be he Bush or Obama or whomever) to get killed as well.

Yes the SECRET SERVICE WAS DETERMING THE BEST WAYS TO PROTECT THE PRESIDENT. THAT IS THEIR NUMBER ONE JOB.

If the President gets killed there still has to be transfer of power. CHeney was doing exactly what the Secret Service told him to do.

As Bush was. As Obama would do in the same circumstances.

You really have no clue other than your frothing liberal mimes do you.

a. Was Marine one on the ground?

B. WHere was the motorcade to get him there?

C. What was the prep time for getting Air Force One off the ground.

D. Had the routes and alternate routes been checked from the school to Marine One/ Air Force One given the current situation.

E. Did the local law enforcmenet people have time to clear a route to the Marine One/ Air Force One?

F. Other than the plane hitting the building what information was available to Bush at the time?

G. How many other planes were involved, where were they, what other attacks might be taking place?


These are only a few of the thousands of details which had to be considered prior to it being considered safe to move Bush (or any President in a similar situation) from the school which was a secure location to elsewhere.

You dont want to look at the logic of the situation. You just want to go off on a Bush bashing frothing tangent and not even try to think with a clear rational mind. Typical leftie.

retired military:

Thank you for explaining common sense to Herman. It is quite obvious he is willingly oblivous to things that happen in the real world.

Most likely the word that Bush got was that a plane had hit the World trade center. That was probably the extent of the information they had at the time.

I am quite certain there were probably several thousand flash messages being sent out within minutes of the plane hitting. For Herman a flash message is a message which is sent out IMMEDIATELY through channels on major events. Most likely it contained something along the lines of "plane hit the WTC for unknown reasons, possible terorist attack". I am quite certain that that is about the extent of the message that Bush got at that time. It is doubtful the news teams were even rolling at that time. If Bush had called his Chief of Staff or anyone else he would have been told no further details because there were no details to be had.

The people receiving those messages (most of them having stars on their shoulders) then send out appropriate messages dictating actions, etc. and start the intelligence gathering process.

In short, Herman, short of a message stating "Nuclear bomb went off in NY" then the appropriate thing for Bush to do is wait for the Secret Service to tell him that they are ready for him to move. At which point he would have gone and gotten an update which for 15 or so minutes after the attack would have not consisted of anything at all. I am quite certain the presidential limo has a TV in it along with numerous other data receiving capabilities.

Running around in a panic like Herman suggests would solve nothing other than giving the appearance of paniced President which the dems would have gladly used against Bush and repeated ad nauseum for hours on end instead of the pet goat story that they still repeat.

Again Herman, try looking at the real world and what really happened vs your liberal fantasy of events.

retired military:

Oh and Herman, If someone needed to get information to Bush at that time they would have used the flash message route because that is the one that is set up to handle emergencies. All Bush would have done by calling people is interupting them from doing their jobs, their jobs being get the intelligence that he would have been asking for.

You really shouldnt comment on things you know nothing about.

IDIOT, it was his chief of staff who told him in person that the nation was under attack (your foolish desire to have him called by telephone notwithstanding)!!! Moreover, not a "possible terrorist attack" (your stupid words) but that "America is under attack" declared the chief-of-staff. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2002/09/11/MN911voice03.DTL

"It is doubtful the news teams were even rolling at that time." -- retired military

Your stupidity just keeps going on and on!!! While in the classroom, Bush was informed that the SECOND plane had hit its target (by the way, he knew of the first hit before he got inside the classroom). Of course, the news teams were rolling at that time!!! Damn, you're dumb!!!

So Bush knew that there might well be people in need of being rescued. Should he call someone to see if he could help out with this??? After all, jumbo jets flying into buildings isn't something your local fire dept. deals with on a day-to-day basis. Nah, better to find out what happens to the pet goat.

"At which point he would have gone and gotten an update which for 15 or so minutes after the attack would have not consisted of anything at all." -- retired military

Bush had absolutely no idea how many planes had been hijacked. Heck, one could have been crashing into a major city every 30 seconds for all he knew. If this had been the case it would, of course, have been on the news, but not in the pet goat story which Chimpy couldn't tear himself away from. Heck, his own staff would have been continuing to tell of crashes, but Bushie would say (with your blessing) "Not now, I want to find out what happens to the goat!". At least one plane could have been on its way to try to destroy the Pentagon -- oh my gosh, one was! But that goat was just so dear to Moron King's heart.

Utterly incredibly, you ask a decent question: "How many other planes were involved, where were they, what other attacks might be taking place?" NOW HOW IN THE WORLD DOES BUSH COME ANY CLOSER TO FINDING ANY INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THIS BY SPENDING VALUABLE TIME READING ABOUT A PET GOAT????

Retired military, I've had about enough of dealing with your stupidity, defending the indefensible. THANKFULLY, you're not Commander-in-Chief. It's tragic you're so dumb.
