After appointing a tax evader to run the Treasury Department, a Homeland Security Secretary that doesn’t know what a terrorist is, and don’t forget one of the more comical choices (I bet Obama wishes he could) the gaffe machine VP– I guess considering the track record of the President’s appointments that it should come as no great surprise they have actually had to hold press conferences for his choice for United States Supreme Court to discuss her admittedly poor judgment.
Obama’s top spokesman, Robert Gibbs, told reporters about Sotomayor: “I think she’d say that her word choice in 2001 was poor.”… “I’m sure she would have restated it,” Obama flatly told NBC News, without indicating how he knew that.
What’s next? Contracting the French out to run the war effort? Turning over election oversight to Acorn?
If poor judgment is acceptable and the primary qualifications for a justice are instead diversity and empathy, obviously then justice is not a main concern nor will it be served.
