    I am so glad Rush has told us how to think, whew, almost thought for myself.

    She's been overturned by the Supreme Court 80%, according to Rush.

    A lot of times the Supreme Court pick acts one way till after they get confirmed and then their true colors show.

    I'm not comfortable with this person because she has shown that she favors affirmative action policies which are unconstitutional.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    When he bring up facts to consider you count yourself among those who'd rather remain ignorant, I see.

    there is nothing to interpret here.
    However, some who are hell bent on trashing any nominee who isn't to the right of Scalia have already "interpreted" that comment to mean that she advocates some kind of judicial activism.

    I saw the video and it seemed to me that she was describing how the court system works at different stages. The appeals court has the job of examining appeals to determine their constitutionality - "making policy" if you will.

    She realized she was being recorded and covered up, for the lefties, that's more then enough to give her a pass.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I was watching BBC and CNN and it says she sort of 'unknown' on her stances on gay marriage and Abortion etc.
    So hey, you never know Republicans. She may be appointed and switch. Be optimistic.

    If it's unconstitutional, why has it not been overturned? Simple question i know but i'm just curious.

    I thought about your comment some more and realized that you ARE being told how to think, but by the 'drive-by media'.

    I completely understand that I can expect certain types of appointees by Obama. I'm not looking for him to appoint even a moderate let alone someone even slightly right.

    However even she knows that what she said was unacceptable and wrong. The unforgivable part was the way she was slightly amused by it.

    No, I prefer scholarly, unprejudiced information. Not one-sided info from a angry partisan. Subscribing to such on either side is true ignorance. Listening to those who always agree with your position is not real info.
