Obama gets to pick a justice

Something disturbing that I read about this today:
Somewhat opaquely, Obama, a constitutional law lecturer, has said that the single most important qualification his appointments must possess is empathy for those who are less fortunate.
Really? I thought their job was to determine if laws passed by the legislature are constitutional...sounds a lot like legislating from the bench. Hum...

Lets see how liberals scream and yell when Republicans so much as ask a question about whomever he picks....when they obstructed judge after judge when Bush was in office...

Your a liar!!!!! Nope:
FLASHBACK: Obama joins filibuster bid against Alito...
Biden, Clinton, Too...

You're clueless. Congress confirmed 97 percent of Bush's court nominations. You're either grossly misinformed or lying. Which is it?

Well Anon, Supreme Court appointees get all the press, due to the fact that they tend to have the final say on matters of law (whether or not they overstep their boundaries). Care to site any statistics relating to Supreme Court nominees?

Ya see there’s a big difference in how libweenies versus conservatives react to this matter.

A conservative nominee is attacked for his/her personal beliefs, no matter their track record of considering law above personal preference. A liberal nominee on the other hand is held up for praise if they allow their personal feelings to be the overriding factor in their decisions.
