Not my fault you made a claim you can't back up.
I am still waiting for the two libs to explain why Estrada was the first appellate judge fillibustered. Why did all four former DEM SOLICITOR GENERALS endorse his appointment if he was some sort of "Stealth rightwinger"
in discrimination law, if a reason is given for an action and it turns out that the reason is false, the jury can assume a discriminatory reason really motivated the decision maker (Manzer vs Diamond Shamrock in the 6th Circuit).
Since it is obvious that the reason the dems gave was a pretext or a facade, we can assume a racist motive really was the reason.
And lets compare Bush and Obama. Bush picked Roberts who was generally seen as the best available conservative. Appointing a White Catholic was not going to gain him any votes based on that. No one believed that Sotomayor was the best available liberal jurist--she probably was the best available Hispanic female jurist though so clearly Obama did see the ethnicity or gender of his first nominee as important to gain votes.
Next let's look at Harriet Meier. Yes she was a woman but most commentators said Bush initially wanted her because she was loyal to Bush. He was trying to pay off someone for their loyalty rather than gain votes especially since he wasn't going to be running again. was she qualified-objectively yes, subjectively no since she was no where near the best available jurist or legal scholar.
ALito was way up on everyone's list and again, picking a white catholic male was not designed to gain the GOP votes in elections-merely votes on controversial cases.
Thus, based on what we have seen so far, Obama has made the ethnicity and gender of his picks more important a factor than Bush did, BOth engaged in politics-but different forms
Still waiting for you to provide a legitimate source to your claim of racism and anti-semitism.
I noted that the reason why the dems claimed they were against Estrada was specious
once I have done that the presumption is that racism is what motivated them
ROberts was well known as extremely conservative but he was not fillibustered
Estrada had the ABA and four leading heavyweights on the left-four former Solicitor Generals endorse Estrada including his former Boss, Clinton's Solicitor GEneral all of whom said he was both extremely qualified and was not a "Stealth right winger
so tell me why was he fillibustered-the first time in at least the last 75 years that a nominee to a circuit court was fillibustered.
I realize when one is a hack you don't want to admit that your side can be racist-especially when you are a dem and you pretend that racism is only a rightwing disease
Uh, Redress, a least this poster's claim of racism has at least a hint of plausibility...which is far more reasonable than the Demcocrats claims that people like me are racist because we opposed Obamacare...
