    That's the way the Democrats act. It's all about the (D), to them. No (D), no vote. Thinking isn't their forte.

    Americans are different, which is why the Republicans, who want to be considered the party of the Americans, have such a difficult time of it, because the Republicans keep trying to follow the anti-American role model the Democrats present.

    No. Claiming her latina vagina gives her better insights than what a white male can have is a racist and sexist comment, period.

    Also, she's definitely racist.

    She's a member of a racist group that calls itself "The Race", or "La Raza", in Mexican.

    Your opinion is wrong. First off, they're not pandering to their "base", since their base is the core of Americans left in the country. They're pandering to the left wing media and chasing after the Democrats.

    Noot was an effective revolutionary, he sucked as a "leader".

    What he did was preserve his reputation for being a ****ty "leader" more interested in compromise than principle. You'll just have to take my word for it, Americans don't trust Noot and he does not have a reputation as thoughtful or reasonable.

    You're just being an a-hole about this judge. Do you think everyone said she's racist? Beside, I'm just telling you what someone else said. All I know is I don't trust Obama.

    Do you like her? And if so, say why.

    The fastest way the Right could get The Messiah to withdraw Sotomayor's nomination would be to successfully paint her as pro-life.

    However, if she is pro-life, the racism issue pales, since stopping the slaughter of millions of babies a year is an important goal for real Americans.

    Anyone actually think anyone nominated by The Messiah will oppose the murder of babies?

    Nancy Pelosi is pro-abortion.

    So's Mario Cuomo.

    Considering that the pedophile protecting cardinals of the United States support Democrat candidates for office, and one can reliably say they're really pro-abortion, too, as well as pro-pedophilia.

    I think being able to admit when you're wrong show principles like honesty and integrity.

    'Take your word...' Wha the... How old do you think I am, son?? I was around when Newt had his day in the sun. He got things done, brought the party back to relevancy. And his momma was a hoot!

    I don't recall being a political party. Really, I do not span even a single zip code.

    I'm not even a Republican, and more importantly, I never voted for this last Bush. He's too liberal.

    We're not discussing someone admitting their error.

    We're discussing someone retracting a correct statement to appease critics.

    What does that act say about Noot's honesty and integrity?

    What it says is that one doesn't have to look too far to discover why the GOP is unpopular with the people who supported Reagan.

    Is your age relevant?

    You can't remember when Noot got off the back of AF1 because he was ordered to by our Rapist President?

    People who just recite Hannit/ Rush talking points are funny in a scary (I don't want them around my kids) sort of way.

    Scarecrow, why don't you do a little homework, check it out for yourself and not just believe everything Sean tells you to believe.

    SUMMARY: CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC all took a comment Judge Sonia Sotomayor made on the role of the circuit court during a 2005 forum out of context. The context makes clear that Sotomayor was actually explaining the difference between district and appeals court justices, not claiming that she "believes court of appeals justices should make policy."
    LINK

    SUMMARY: Numerous media figures have pointed to a sentence from a 2001 speech by Sonia Sotomayor to characterize her or her comments as being "racist" while ignoring the point of Sotomayor's speech, which undercuts their criticisms.
    Have Sotomayor's critics actually read her Berkeley speech?

    Do a little research, think about it, form an opinion... or.

    Memorize talking point and be a robot.
