Sonia Sotomayor: Another Wretched Legacy from the Bush Family

By John W. Lillpop

While conservatives wring their hands in despair over the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the US Supreme Court, a quick peek at the resume of the nominee is in order.

Turns out that Sotomayor was nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by none other than President George H. W. Bush in 1991 and confirmed in 1992.

If confirmed to the US Supreme Court, Sotomayor will replace David Souter, another flaming liberal who made it to the highest court in the land courtesy of Bush 41.

Sotomayor is credited with remarking that policy is made in the courts, and "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

With the nation bursting at the seams with racial discord, President Obama selects a raving Hispanic racist and sexist, and does so only because of her ethnicity and gender!

How utterly brilliant. NOT!

Whatever happened to the "post-partisan" era that Obama promised?

Back to the collateral damage inflicted on America by Bush 41 and 43.

A review of their combined legacies reveals a startling pattern including:

* Two wars in Iraq, one in Afghanistan

* Two recessions, one depression

* Two economic meltdowns involving S& Ls and banks

* Open borders and 12-40 illegal aliens in America

* Election of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama as US Presidents

Has there even been a more despicable father-son combination in the history of American politics?

Of course not!

Let the Bush legacies serve as a warning to real conservatives hither and yonder: There is so such thing as a conservative in the Bush family tree--no one named Bush should ever again be entrusted with an important role in the Republican party.

By the way, has anyone bothered to vet Sonia Sotomayor's birth certificate?

Or will she be the first illegal alien nominated to the Supreme Court by the first illegal alien to serve as president?
