EMPATHY VS. THE RULE OF LAW
The nomination of Sonia Maria Sotomayor is in and let the games begin.
Vanderbilt – ‘09
Obowma wants a ‘Progressive’ (Socialist)
type of female and ethnic background to
represent HIS leanings. Sotomayor has
indicated her leanings are in his general
direction. She’s shown past decisions do
not follow the law, and is often challenged
(in writing too) on those lawless rulings.
She does not represent Conservative
thought. Blind Justice here??
Empathy is defined by the subjective nature that one would have empathy for? To have empathy toward one side, means that one would have a bias against the other. That is hardly judicial.
Richard A. Epstein has an issue or two which the choice of Sotomayor as the next Supreme Court Justice. He states that the Obama “empathy” chickens have come home to roost as judicial ability and temperament do not seem to matter.
Evidently, the characteristics that matter most for a potential nominee to the Supreme Court have little to do with judicial ability or temperament, or even so ephemeral a consideration as a knowledge of the law. Instead, the tag line for this appointment says it all. The president wants to choose “a daughter of Puerto Rican parents raised in Bronx public housing projects to become the nation’s first Hispanic justice.”
Flopping Aces has a great review of Sotomayer’s body of work including even a Justice’s yearbook page from college which includes a quote from Norman Thomas, the socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America
Once again we see the liberal bias in the media in every action that is done by the Obama Administration. When Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s name was picked there was no reference to her liberal tenancies. Did that occur when GWB chose justices? NEVER! The very first thing that was referenced was how conservative was the justice?
Between the bailouts, the continued spending, the unending federal deficits and now the choice of a “empathetic” Supreme Court Justice, we will be feeling the backlash of the Obama days well into the future.
