WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor fended off Republican attacks on Tuesday, saying "diversity on the bench is good for America" and promising rulings based on law, not racial bias.
Grilled by Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sotomayor -- who would become the first Hispanic on the U.S. top court -- coolly explained the context for one of her most controversial comments: that a "wise Latina" might reach a better legal decision than a white man.
The lies she has been telling from the moment she was sworn in alone should disqualify her from the Judges position she currently holds let alone from the Supreme Court. Her record on the bench, her own statements, her affiliation with Racist organizations all largely being glossed or denied out right and she's being given a pass because the Republicans seriously fear being called racists if they go around asking real questions and then hold her to the same standard Ted Kennedy with Robert Bork back in 1986. Oh wait. Ted Kennedy made up all the lies he spewed from the Senate floor to discredit Bork. Everything that Kennedy said was proved latter to be lies but by then the Liberals got their way and the term Borked was born. So we need to keep our heads above the low level Kennedy set ans stick to the truth of her own record not to Bork her. No but to point out the facts and the truth before the unthinking Liberals ignore the truth and facts and rubber stamp her nomination because it's the Barack thing to do.
