Obama names Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court, first Hispanic in history, third woman

Since when it empathy and compassion a requirement for the Supreme Court?
I guess when a liberal is in charge.
Now, liberals get very mad when you correctly point out that liberal judges make up laws from the bench and let their personal opinion get in the way, not the law of the land.
Well, as always, the stereotype holds true and here we have the liberal POTUS flat out telling us that his judges will take people's feelings and personal struggles into account. The constitution and the law are not enough.
The more accurately you describe what liberalism actually is and does to the country, the louder they scream.
You have to give Obama credit, he is not hiding his liberalism at all. He is coming right out and saying what he wants...and he believes most of us are stupid enough not to care or actually think this is the way things should be done.
Hope he isn't right...

Sotomayor will be the first Supreme Court Justice impeached and removed from the court. That is my prediction based on her current track record of being overturned on a higher percentage than the 9th circus.

“9th circus”… good one!

I heard more than a few LibWeenie pundits say the “right” won’t dare question the nomination of, a women (gasp), or the first liberal Hispanic nomination (gasp, gasp) to the supreme court.

It must suck out loud to be forced to make nominations based on the potential lack of substantive debate.

Nothing new here, if you can’t win the debate, shut up your competition.

"CIRCUS" might be the perfect description for what is now going on...again..no imagination in that..

perfect blamin...
I love how all we hear about is that she is a woman and hispanic..
to liberals that is much more important that how good you are at your job

So not true, the fact is that she IS good at her job and she IS qualified! In addition to that Sotomayor is a woman and Latina, what the hec is wrong with that???!!! I suppose you all want men making supreme court decisions, right?

THE PRESIDENT: I have followed this man's career for some time, and he has excelled in everything that he has attempted. He is a delightful and warm, intelligent person, who has great empathy and a wonderful sense of humor. He's also a fiercely independent thinker with an excellent legal mind who believes passionately in equal opportunity for all Americans. He will approach the cases that come before the Court with a commitment to deciding them fairly, as the facts and the law require. - Words of Pres George H. W. Bush

Again the word empathy used when Judge Clarence Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court...so the word empathy can be used for him but not to describe Sotomayor??? Interesting

She should just call herself a compassionate liberal. Or a Conservative Latina.

I get it anon...second one up.
However, Bush did not make that the main focus and reason for picking Thomas

Obama's main point for picking her: "intellect, a mastery of the law, an ability to hone in on the key issues and provide clear answers to complex legal questions", as well as experience - media honed in on empathy...

Anonymous,

You sound like a gushing middle school girl with a crush; or a CBS white house reporter.

You’ve been engineered, resist! Resist!

In my opinion, this is a shrewd political move by Obama. Woman and Hispanic - For Republicans this is a very challenging situation.

It's kinda sad.

Oh come one American, Olbermann has been saying that for days before plagerized it.
