Meanwhile with Sotomayer I can just life bad quote after bad quote after bad quote directly from the page. I don't insinuate she thinks she makes policy. She said it. I don't insinuate she might let her prejudices effect her rulings, she said it. I don't insinuate she said something that might be interpreted as she might make a better judge for being a latino woman vs a white man. She straight up said it.
With Alito you found 1 thing that you have to stretch to make it say what you want it to say. You have to read between the lines and ignore what he says DIRECTLY after it.
With Sonia there is a wealth of quotes where each one backs up the assertion of the one before it. There can be no mistake about her underlying points, they are repeated. If she misspoke one time I'd give her the benefit of the doubt. But she repeatedly asserts these wrongs. She is unabashed and unashamed because ultimately she thinks she's right which makes her a judge who A)doesn't understand her job and B) doesn't give a hoot about throwing impartiality out the window as in her words it's an unattainable goal.
So if you think these are in anyway comparable I think you're just being dishonest for whatever reason and have little interest in continuing down this road with you.

I don't support Obama's pick either, but that doesn't stop the fact most conservatives allowed a racist into the supreme court like Alito.

I'm hoping that during her confirmation hearings she will adjust herself and give the right answers when it comes to some of this stuff. But I have a small fear that she will be defiant and adamant that it's perfectly ok for her to both be a Supreme Court judge while thinking and talking like she does.
I'm finding it very ironic and amusing that the right wing is talking about racism.....
Women are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
You take it differently because he was a Bush appointee and you are conservative. that is your fault, not mine.
All you cared about it if they are conservative.
