Of Course… White House Defends Loony Sotomayor After Court Overturns Her Latest Decision
It’s not like this was an isolated incident.
She’s 2 for 6.
She’s now been overturned 66% of the time by the Supreme Court.
But, the radicals in the White House defended their radical choice for Supreme Court justice today anyway.
The Hill reported:
The White House came to the defense of President Obama’s pick to be the newest Supreme Court justice after Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s ruling in a racially charged case was reversed by the Supreme Court.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs all but accused the current court of “judicial activism,” a buzz term used by conservatives in recent years, in overturning what the White House saw as Sotomayor’s upholding of precedent.
The highest court ruled Monday that a group of white firefighters in New Haven, Conn. were discriminated against after the city threw out a promotion test after one Hispanic and no African-Americans passed. Sotomayor ruled in favor of the city as an appeals court judge.
Republicans on Monday sought to use the case to question Sotomayor’s qualifications and buy more time before her confirmation hearings are set to begin on July 13.
But Gibbs said that the case “denotes that [Sotomayor] is a follower of precedent,” and the arguments over judicial activism “seem to be at the very least upside-down in this case.”
Gibbs said the case proves “she doesn’t legislate from the bench.”
“I think it is an interesting new interpretation of a law that has been reviewed by many judges in many courts, judges appointed by Democrats and Republicans.”
Again… She’s 2 for 6.
