    Majority of Americans favor Sotomayor confirmation

    Majority of Americans Favor Sotomayor Confirmation

    and if there is any need for proof that the right-wings attempts to slander this nominee failed miserably...take a look at this:

    Sotomayor counters GOP critics over bias claims - Yahoo! News


    A new Associated Press-GfK poll suggested that Americans have a more positive view of her than they did of any of former President George W. Bush's nominees to the high court. Half backed her confirmation.


    While I am not a huge fan of this nomination, I am loving the fact that the GOP and the right-wing specifically continue to screw themselves and show how out of touch with the country they truly are.

    Maybe the poll is correct but I do not believe that will influence the DECIDERS. Yet I could be wrong, I was once !!
    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

    I found that fascinating and unexpected.

    It doesn't surprise me. I don't like her as a jurist, but the simple reality is the Constitution gives the President the right to choose whom he wants to sit on the Federal Bench. Most people I think realize this; most people I suspect don't want a replay of the Robert Bork hearings, or the Clarence Thomas high-tech lynching.

    She's ok, but not great, which means she should get the job (unless she implodes during the confirmation hearings).

    The GOP has to pick it's fights, this isn't one of them, never has. I don't like her, but, cmon, she's replacing a liberal. Doesn't matter in the long run at all.

    Government by polls, yeah. What's wrong with your brain?

    I find it hard to believe the majority of Americans could even tell you who the hell she is and why she's in the news.

    I meant that the first day, women greatly supported, and men where strongly against, but now it's about even, with men being slightly more in favor of her. Why was there an initial split by sex, and why has it changed?

    It's a shame that people rely on polls to make their arguments. Is popularism really that important?

    All the far-right's hyper-partisan rhetoric is backfiring on them just like it did with Sara Palin running around screaming about "pallin' around with terrorists." (BTW, I do a spot on impression)

    With information so accessible and attainable on the internet, and with 24-hr news constantly vetting facts, don't they know people are going to get wise to the BS talking points?

    I would apply the above criticism to both the GOP and Dems, but lately the right has gotten more desperate and really gone too far in some cases.

    And, BTW, who even knew Pat Buchanan was still alive. That must have been funny when he woke up and found out we have a black President?
