    Mr. Goose,
    I like others, had never heard of Sotomayor before today. I have yet to form an opinion on her. I have been doing some research today.
    Could you cite your references for her hatred of the constitution? Also, the decisions overturned because of her disregard for the law? The SCOTUS would be the court that would hear an appeal of any ruling from the US Court of appeals.

    CIVIL LITIGATION
    Since joining the Second Circuit in 1998, Sotomayor has authored over 150 opinions, addressing a wide range of issues, in civil cases. To date, two of these decisions have been overturned by the Supreme Court; a third is under review and likely to be reversed. In those two cases (and likely the third), Sotomayorís opinion was rejected by the Supreme Courtís more conservative majority and adopted by its more liberal dissenters (including Justice Souter). Those outcomes suggest that Sotomayorís views would in many respects be similar to those of Justice Souter.

    Having two rulings reversed out of some 150 is hardly constantly.

    Are you making stuff up?

    I think you have it wrong she found in favor of the white fireman in New Haven who's test were thrown out because of the low pass rate of minority fireman. She may not be as liberal as you think. Plus she will be the only one on the Supreme Court who has lenghty experience as a judge.

    No desire to kill the messenger here, but please if you have legitimate sources, please cite them. I am trying to formulate an opinion based on fact, not on heresay. Your input, if indeed factual, would be appreciated by all here.

    'I heard it on the news', does not constitute fact, as we all know.

    The 'News' as we all know is biased.

    Please, if you have some link to reversals of District Court rulings, please share them.

    I provided a link in my above post. Can you not do as much?

    The fact that I wasn't immediately outraged when she was announced as the pick says he could have gone a lot further left than he did.
