Despite President Obama’s initial statement that it “could take months” to properly vet a Supreme Court Justice candidate, he seems to have pulled a rabbit out of his hat with the choice of Sonia Montemayor as his choice for Supreme Court Justice.
So, apparently the Obamessiah really *CAN* work miracles!
Ms. Montemayor has several strikes against her already. First, she already has the endorsement of former Secretary of State and noted RINO Colin Powell, which should be the kiss of death right there.
She was nominated to Federal Judge by Bush 41, and promoted by Bill Clinton, which is plenty for me to not like her.
There is also floating around a videotape of her speaking at Duke University where she states “the Apellate level is where the policy is made.” That statement Can’t sit well with every member of Congress, who (technically) write the laws of the land, according to the Constitution. I’d link to it, but it’s mysteriously disappeared from youTube. In fact, there are NO photos of Justice Sotomayor available at all through Google Search.
So while the Democraps have 60 votes with Arlen Specter’s defection, it’s not a lock. Expect fireworks.
Generally, though, I’m in favor of the pick, if for no other reason than to watch Arlen Specter sqirm like a worm on a barbecue. Specter opposed her last two nominations to high court.
UPDATE: It’s confirmed. He not only walked out with Justice Sotomayor, he trotted out her family as cover as well. Obviously, he’s not going to take any hard questions here.
And the Press cheered like schoolboys. How sad.
