“Yeah, I think her prior experience in the federal courts has prepared her for this, and I also think she will bring a much needed fresh perspective to the Supreme Court.”

“Yes, I think her legal background, education and experience are as good or better than any other candidates for the position.”

“I haven’t gotten to hear much about her, so I really don’t have an opinion on her.”

Experience is not the end all be all for a candidate, folks. Adolph Hitler has plenty of experience in running wars and the logistics of military operations but I doubt any of us would nominate him to be Secretary of Defense were he still alive today and a US citizen.

Sotomayor is on the record in various media advocating a legislation from the bench mentality that is inherently dangerous for the highest court in the land. It is dangerous to us and all people to have people trying to influence the direction of law instead of interpreting the law.

It's a sad day in America when common sense is a rare commodity in people.

On last thought, Emily: A fresh perspective is not what is needed on the Supreme Court...we're not talking Congressman or Senator here...we're talking about someone who looks at an established body of precedents relating to a legal document (The Constitution) and makes black/white decisions.

A Justice is not someone who comes up with new ways to invigorate the economy or regulate Wall Street!

Once again, the Founding Fathers would survey the populace of today's America, shake their heads, and promptly book a charter to Antarctica.

If you support legislating from the courts sure put her on the court. If you think someone that belongs to or supports a group known as La Raza (The Race) sure put her on the court. If you think that being part of a certain minority group makes your life story any more compelling than any other group, sure put her on the court.

Oh, they already put her on the court.
