The honorable thing for her to do is step down as nominee or at worst Obama should withdraw her name as his pick and move on to someone else.

    I don't support her as the nominee.
    You do not think that if people have all the information available about the comments, they will still think they are racist? So far all most people has heard is a soundbite. It's kinda like the yearbook quote, where most people only know it is a quote from a socialist, since her opponents did not mention what the quote actually was. Soon as people here the quote, they have to admit it is entirely noncontroversial.

    What court cases has she ruled on that you disagree with, and why?

    As a Conservative I don't really care if a SCOTUS Justice is married.

    I mean, I might care somewhat...maybe....if we got down into the nitty gritty...but in general I want to see their ruling history.

    The Case Against Sotomayor

    It is most assuredly not a comprehensive look at her record, but Rosen does offer up a few links exploring some of the cases she has decided. Not comprehensive, merely what I've seen thus far.

    Re: White House urged to address 'racist' charge

    Key cases reveal few clues - Yahoo! News

    Sotomayor is proving to be an even more fitting replacement for Souter than she first appeared--Souter was himself a stealth nominee when appointed to the Court, and Sotomayor apparently is equally stealthy.

    However, a couple cases do appear to be potential problems for her.

    One is the Ricci v DeStefano reverse discrimination case that she dismissed with a single paragraph summary opinion. That scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court next month, with a ruling likely to be issued before hearings on her nomination begin.

    The other is the per curiam opinion Maloney v Cuomo issued in January of this year, which disregarded the Supreme Court ruling on the Washington, D.C., handgun ban to apply a much older (1886) ruling on the applicability of the 2nd Amendment to the states. As the 9th Circuit arrived at a different interpretation in Nordyke v King last month, there is a good chance this matter will also find its way to the Supreme Court.

    This article is not much more comprehensive than the Rosen piece I last posted, but it does provide a bit more analysis.

    The problem is that she did the opposite.

    She's a racist and is not fit to sit on the SCOTUS.
