    I see, so you do not accept her apology and her rescinding of her own remarks? You know from watching a You Tube video her true intent despite her apologizing.

    Do you think that perhaps you're being partisan in your opposition, just a tad? Not accepting someone's admission of an error is incredible to me and some might say shows a true lack of character.

    I guess you're the one human on this planet who has never regretted saying something and apologized for it....

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. - 9th Amendment
    I made nothing up. You obviously have problems with the 9th amendment.

    At first blush, I am very surprised that he has put forward the name of a former prosecutor and corporate lawyer.

    I'll have to read up on her performance and history to for a firm opinion.

    Since it is David Souter she is replacing, there is little increased damage she can do to the Court unless she is a rabid Leftist.

    Your entire premise / line of reasoning is flawed and you're basically posting purely partisan comments to appease yourself and others who don't like having a new liberal jurist appointed.

    To act as if you know that she believes it's a judge's priority to make policy is complete 100% pure BS....IMHO....

    If I call someone's argument irrational, that's attacking a mod? Really? Okay.
