President Obama can't let Sotomayer's comments stand for themselves. He must swoop in and try to explain away what she clearly said. "I'm sure she would have restated it, but if you look at the entire sweep of the essay she wrote, what's clear is that she was simply saying that her life experiences will give her information about the struggles and hardships that people are going through that will make her a good judge." What?! Struggles and hardships makes one a good judge? Funny, no mention of her love for the Constitution (because she doesn't) and no mention of standing for the rule of law (because she won't). The Constitution is a vice to liberals--preventing them from unleashing a tidal wave of government handouts and feel-good policies.
Hopefully the Conservatives in Congress will have the backbone to make a big deal about this and stop this confirmation!
