184. Quoting conservative groups to try to prove she is liberal does not do it. They consider anyone
Edited on Tue May-26-09 03:39 PM by No Elephants
left of Scalia too liberal. Maybe make that left of Hitler.

As far as Constitutional Accountability, I believe you are quoting from something posted after Obama nominated her. I don't know why that organization would ever oppose Obama's nominee. And I don't think it describes her as liberal anyway. And the Constitutional Accountablity description of her makes her sound like a strict constructionist, which is what Scalia claims to be, as follows:

"While CACs review of Judge Sotomayors record is continuing, we already know that she is a brilliant lawyer who is committed to ruling based on the Constitution and the law, not on her own personal political views. As Judge Sotomayor herself stated in a recent dissenting opinion: The duty of a judge is to follow the law, not to question its plain terms. "
