    Same crap the Obama crowd used to defend Obama's stupid policies.

    "Don't you dare question our messiahs precious plans or you're a racists"


    Stop playing their game.

    From what I have read and seen this lady is not worthy of being on the Supreme Court. Her racial views are racist. Her policy views are activist.
    Her embracing of Obamanism just makes it all worse.

    What excuse, I was asking a question; should Republicans use the same tactics their partisan political opponents used? Yes or no; is answering a SIMPLE question that hard for you?

    Causation or correlation amounts to the same thing here. The thing is that different judges rule differently based on at least gender. Whether gender is the cause or not is not the question.

    Going back to her statement, it only states that "women ...have tended to vote more often than their male counterpart to uphold women's claims in sex discrimination cases and criminal defendants' claims", which makes no claim as to causation or correlation, only that there is pattern.

    Since Latino's are not a race how can this be an issue of racism ?
    These are the races that the US Census bureau recognizes.


    White;
    Black or African American;
    American Indian or Alaska Native;
    Asian; and
    Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.

    Latino is an ethnicity not a race!!

    Both sides of this arguement are out of line calling this a rcae issue.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    Is white a race? Did she not denigrate white men by saying that they are not capable of coming to decisions as good as someone else?

    Then it's a race issue.

    You need to go read the speech. She speaks highly of the white men who where on the Supreme Court, among others.

    Please don't repeatedly ask me to do what I have already done.

    And yeah, it is exactly what she said, whether she meant to say it or not.

    I am having a hard time seeing how you can walk away with that impression if you read the whole thing. She is clearly talking about different groups ruling differently, and in regards to civil rights cases, her life experience in that realm gives her more insight than a white man would have. She then immediately refers to how it was a court of white men who decided Brown vs Board of Education, calling into question the premise of the oft quoted soundbite, and saying explicitly that white men can rule, and rule wisely, on civil rights issues.
