And forget about the snarky disclaimer she adds, she is a smart enough person to know that by saying, “And I know — I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don’t make law. I know. O.K. I know. I’m not promoting it. I’m not advocating it. I’m — you know.” http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/15/us/15judge.html
she can play bot sides of the political fence. Most people learn this trick around the first grade.
She also comes across as a racist and bigoted person.
“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 who hasn't’t lived that life,” said Judge Sotomayor. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/15/us/15judge.html
Alrighty then. So she has opened the door for others to question her on race and gender. She is the one who made these claims. She is the one alluding to the thought that white men are not able to rule wisely on certain issues because they are, TA DA! white. I guess by that logic Abe Lincoln stumbled into his decisions about slavery.
While I am at it, she is believes that gun ownership is not a right granted to us by our constitution. "It is settled law," Sotomayor and the Second Circuit held, "that the Second Amendment applies only to limitations the federal government seeks to impose on this right." http://www.reason.com/news/show/133722.html
Even the circus known as the 9Th Circuit Court of Appeals in Nordyke vs. King ruled;
We therefore conclude that the right to keep and bear arms is "deeply rooted in this Nation's history and tradition." Colonial revolutionaries, the Founders, and a host of commentators and lawmakers living during the first one hundred years of the Republic all insisted on the fundamental nature of the right. It has long been regarded as the "true palladium of liberty." Colonists relied on it to assert and to win their independence, and the victorious Union sought to prevent a recalcitrant South from abridging it less than a century later. The crucial role this deeply rooted right has played in our birth and history compels us to recognize that it is indeed fundamental, that it is necessary to the Anglo-American conception of ordered liberty that we have inherited. We are therefore persuaded that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the Second Amendment and applies it against the states and local governments.
So what we have here is president BHO following through on what he said he wanted to do, and for that, I give him credit. What is even more worrying, is for one, he is just getting started, and two; he was able to fool just enough fools to get elected.
She is looking to make law and not rule on it. She has also stated that gun ownership is not a constitutional right. President B. Hussein Obama and his staff have intentionally picked a female,hispanic, and radical leftist for a reason. He believes, and for the most part correctly, the the Republican party is go easy on her because of her race, thus allowing her lefist views to go unchallenged. BHO is a clear and open racist. And to make matters worse, he is an angry one at that. Make no mistake, BHO was to reshape America into a socialist, racist country where free thinking is illegal.....
