Sessions says Sotomayor meeting 'fun'

(CNN) - In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer Tuesday, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions - the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee - said he enjoyed meeting Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.

"She was engaging and talkative and we had a good conversation. It was fun," he said.

    Sessions is a clown. All this foo-foo is comical. Americans KNOW full well these Republican clowns are doing nothing but stone walling this woman's confirmation!!!

    Obstructionist party doing exactly what they always do.

    The Republicans are so scared of offending the Hispanic Population that they're going to give Sotomayor a free pass. No matter what people are saying, this confirmation hearing will be completely about race because the Republicans are walking on eggshells. I wish they would grill her on her politics and judicial decisions but then I'm not running for office.

    She is another far lefter who would take away rights and pursue the global warming B.S. that gore spouts. I am aconservative minded democrat, but the leadership we have now is way too far left for me.

    Sounds pretty mealy-mouthed to me. He's waiting to see which way the wind blows on this before he'll "have the courage to make the hard decision" (the one that increases his chances of re-election.)

  10. The Party of NO is only “pro-life” to save a zygote now, so it can then kill the “babies” 18 years later as soldiers in an elective religious war.

    I doubt the good Senator would have called a meeting with a male nominee "fun", maybe informative or enlightening but never fun.

    White sexist pig.
