Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney issued a statement Tuesday on Sotomayor's nomination:
"The nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court is troubling. Her public statements make it clear she has an expansive view of the role of the judiciary. Historically, the Court is where judges interpret the Constitution and apply the law. It should never be the place "where policy is made," as Judge Sotomayor has said. Like any nominee, she deserves a fair and thorough hearing. What the American public deserves is a judge who will put the law above her own personal political philosophy."
You know? Scroll down this blog and take a look at all the name calling. Right wing Nazi's? Stuffed suits?
Unfortunately, there are few adults out there. Liberals and right-wingers alike – it'd be wise to heed Obama's Notre Dame speech – it actually is possible to disagree on issues without reducing the other to caraciture. This is getting old......
I've got news for you Mitt, nobody CARES what you think.....
And Scalia and Roberts don't slant their interpretations?
"Funny ….Mitt thinks Judge Sonia Sotomayor as a Supreme Court justice is troubling ….yet Sarah Palin as a Vice President nominee was just fine ….."
Thank you!! That was the BEST comment of the day.
Sorry, Mitt, but Himmler and Goering weren't available for the job. Better luck next time, partisan boy!
What else would you expect from romney nothing but political posturing.
His comments ring pretty hollow.
Wouldn't it be something if politicans could keep themselves relevant by actually doings something other that "just criticize" If you want to get notice, get to work
Another victory for the activist left!
Any person who has explicitly stated that their race and ethnicity render them more qualified to render legal judgements than others is dangerously unqualified for the bench.
"Troubling"? Yes, to say the least.
Thank you Mr. Romney for caring about US justice and for putting this into words!
She just wants to be on the court so they stop overturning her rulings...
@TampaRich who said:
Then why are the democrats trying to burn the constitution, freedom of speech, gone. Guns, soon to be gone.
Where are you getting your information? The biggest step against freedom of speech came during the Bush years, and there has never been an indication that Dems want all guns gone.
Headline – Public: Romney comments 'stupid'.
It is troubling to Mitt Romney because Obama did not pick a white male.
Of course any conservative who has any objection to this pick will immediately be deemed a racist. That's because Liberals are phony and have selective memory loss. Conservatives are the color blind ones, while liberals select and elect officialis based only on their pigment. That is the true racism. Liberals are absolutely destroying the fibers of our country
Romney and many Republicans would find anyone that Obama picked as "troubling".
They just don't get it. They have nothing to add to the discussion so just say"no".
Thank you fellow Americans for electing Obama! What an excellent choice he has made for the Supreme Court.
This is coming from someone who when he opens his mouth always show the classic case of someone who is suffering from: "Constipation of the brain and Dirrhea of the mouth...GO AWAY Mitt."
I think Romney is troubling.
All Right! I love Chimini-changas!!!
Sorry Mitt, but the supreme court will only progress with diversity.. We have enough white men like yourself running things, and look where we are today!
Romney let it go,don't let everyone see you are a racist, let it go,,,,,,
Oh shut up Mitt.
Amazing comment by Romney about supreme court policy didnt the supreme court give Bush an election he didnt win. Hows that for policy.
