    She got in a top school because of 'affirmative action'. She turned around and did it to 'minority'. Perhaps, she forgot that her 'lowest score' test wouldn't get her in school????

    And she's been nominated to the SC based on Affirmative Action - she would never have been heard of had she been a white male. It is what it is, she's where she is today because of race and gender and she's going where she's going based on race and gender. Get used to it, it won't get better with the likes of her on the court.

    It's what Obama's tactic is all about. If anybody doesn't let Hispanic woman become a SC judge, Obama can use his 'race' card to defeat people. He loves to tell everybody that Democratic is a friend of 'minority'.

    When Bush selected a Hispanic lawyer to be his Fed judge, libbies SHUTTED IT DOWN because they didn't want Bush to be the FIRST President TO SELECT Hispanic.

    Don't you feel special about democrats when they select the first hispanic woman in SC when they didn't let Bush do that?

    The honor and credit will go to King Obama.

    She's a Racist and her appointment is "Racist" but it isn't considered racist because she isn't White and a Democrat appointed her.

    This really does bother me. This is the Supreme Court of the United States! The best, and only the best dammit! That's not to say that Sotomayor isn't qualified, or is dumb or something. I just can't stand to hear morons, and yes, they are morons if they feel this way, say "it should be a woman" or "it should be a _________". This is too important for crap like that. The best, and only the best, regardless of color, gender, race, or ethnicity.

    Wow, affirmative action really does work. She has the reputation of being extremely sharp and intelligent. Without affirmative action, we might not have had someone with her kind of perspective as a candidate.

    I have heard that she's good. Solid, pedestrian. But that her opinions show no sign of unusually deep thinking.

    Of course none of the Supreme Court purists who are bellowing right now had anything to say when Clarence Thomas showed up in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Funny how she was nominated by both Bush 1 and Clinton and was confirmed. Now the RT. is whining about her and trying their best to discredit her. Where was all the contempt when she was nominated by GB 1.

    Who cares what the Bushes did. She's a racist and a sexist and should be eliminated (from consideration for the SC, not actually eliminated ;))

    She wasn't nominated for the Supreme Court before. She gets more attention now. What was said before is irrelevant. She is a racist. She is a sexist. Should a racist, sexist be eligible for the Supreme Court ? The answer is clearly no.

    NEP ... I THINK IT'S VERY WRONG OF YOU TO SLAM AFFIRMATIVE ACTION.

    Children don't choose to be born in poverty or low income situations. The care and nurturing of our children makes for an improved society.
    We have an obligation to the society in which we live to care for ourselves and each other. That is neither liberal or conservative in my opinion ... it's human decency.

    Sorry but justice A.Scolia said almost the exact same thing Sotomayor said and he wasn't branded a racist. You must live in misery now, your world must be coming apart at the seams. Tke it from someone almost old enough to be your father it will pass, everything will turn out ok.

    I don't know what he said - if he said something which should have disqualified him back then, then that was an issue for then. This is an issue for now.

    Sotomayor is of Puerto Rican descent, and was born in the Bronx

    I guess it's hard to over come that Bronx cultural bias. :rolleyes:

    She only graduated 2nd in her class.

    Must've been a black guy or an asian who finished 1st because of affirmative action....
