    Not necessarily the law itself.

    Was all evidence presented factual, proper conduct followed, etc.
    The term "proper" is the phrase "proper conduct" is properly subjective virtaully always.

She never seems concerned that openly admitting that she carries her own baggage to court is worrisome. She seems like she would poo poo the whole idea of it being worrisome. She has given up on impartiality as a goal with the casualness that one would use to brush lint off their shoulder. Plus she views herself as a policy maker.

    But whatever ready or not she's coming.
    I think the thing is that she is speaking at an annual lecture on diversity in the law profession, or the bench, or whatever. Of course she is going to talk positively about her ethnicity and gender, it's what she is there to talk about and promote.

    I'm sure her long bio has been throughly vetted by the Obama Administration.

    Why is it that the people on the Right are so supportive of this choice?

    They have been so supportive of everything the President so far....

    This gives me no confidence whatsoever. In fact, now I know that we are doomed.
    Let's figure it out.

    actually the document is fairly clear. THose who didn't like what it said are the ones who have confused it-such as FDR wanting to ban machine guns (thinking it would wipe out Capone like mobsters) and thus using the Commerce Clause to Rape and pillage the second and tenth amendments.

    Wow that woman needs to be punished for that dispicable indiscresion for eternity !! What was she thinking that whench ! That horrible Commie ! Who else has she quoted ? Maybe she quoted Bob Dillon !! Or I understand that she was part of a Glee Club in high school and they sang the Communist Woody Guthrie song "This Land Is Your Land". She is nothing but a Commie HO !!! Look at these Commie words !!! This is unpatriotic !! This is treason !

    Can you imagine that this song tells any and every American that thsi land belongs to them !!! Her entire highschool should be charged with treason !!!

    She should not be going to the supreme court she should be doing to prisonfor life without parole !!!

    This land is your land, this land is my land
    From California to the New York Island
    From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters
    This land was made for you and me.
    As I went walking that ribbon of highway
    I saw above me that endless skyway
    I saw below me that golden valley
    This land was made for you and me.
    I roamed and I rambled and I followed my footsteps
    To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
    While all around me a voice was sounding
    Saying this land was made for you and me.
    When the sun came shining, and I was strolling
    And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
    A voice was chanting, As the fog was lifting,
    This land was made for you and me.
    This land is your land, this land is my land
    From California to the New York Island
    From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters
    This land was made for you and me.

    It only becomes subjective when an individual has an ulterior motive or is not qualified to make such decisions.
    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.

    The Republican party surely is doomed, but that is because they tried to copy an art that Obama has perfected.
    Let's figure it out.

    Change????? I don't think so.

    In fact the Republicans have offered zero solutions for anything what so ever.

    McCain the self professed Bin Laden catcher has ran and hid and has not offered up his touted method of catching OBL. Remember him spouting something like that repeatedly on the campaign trail? That only he know how to catch OBL?

    The least McCain could do is offer up his self proclaimed expertise instead of shurking his country and not even offer up that idea.

    As far as solutions go. The Republican party is full of hot air.
