Skip to comments.Cruz Scorches Sotomayor over Trump Critique
Posted on 02/29/2020 6:44:23 AM PST by Kaslin
Before Sonia Sotomayor, the wise Latina as she once referred to herself, was nominated by President Barack Hussein Obama in May 2009 and confirmed as Supreme Court justice that August, her legal expertise and judgment were being questioned by those noting her high reversal rate by the court she was being elevated to:
Well, the Senate gave her a pass, with Sen. Lindsey Graham, who mentions it frequently, being the sole Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee voting to advance her nomination to the full Senate for a vote. Not giving her a pass these days is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who has noted the double standard and bad law she applied in criticizing colleagues Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh for essentially being Trump judges by fighting the incessant lower court injunctions applied nationally to block President Trumps policies and what the American people elected him to do, as reported in Texas Lawyer magazine :
Three of the five majority opinions written by Judge Sotomayor for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals and reviewed by the Supreme Court were reversed, providing a potent line of attack raised by opponents Tuesday after President Obama announced he will nominate the 54-year-old Hispanic woman to the high court.
Her high reversal rate alone should be enough for us to pause and take a good look at her record. Frankly, it is the Senates duty to do so, said Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America.

Well, it’s a good rebuttal.
Don’t know that I’d call it a “scorch”.
Hopefully Trump gets to replace her in the next 5 years.
She was put in place by Obama & that tells me what I need to know.
Personally, I hope Cruz is the pick to replace RBG. That way Cruz could scorch Sotomayor on a daily basis.
Ha! Thanks Obama for appointing a 54 year old, morbidly obese, type 1 diabetic.
Trump will totally replace her in his his second term. Ruth Buzzy Zombie may even outlive her.
She most likely has lost half her feet.
Not maligning diabetics. God no. But she’s a disgusting cow who weighs about 280 lbs.
I am afraid he won’t be able to, as they are there for life, Unless she resigns voluntarily, but I don’t see that happening :(
"the wide Latina...." (fixed)
I agree with you on that. Cruz would be a far better pick for SCOTUS.
Who didn’t know that there was trouble ahead when she was appointed ?
Maybe she's a wide latina.
Some lives are longer than others.
She needs to lose half her bulk.
HOORAY Ted/Reps. See something, say something...as opposed to say nothing...
She has type I diabetes. She will be 66 in June. Average life expectancy for a woman with Type I diabetes is 68.
She keeps getting fatter which doesn’t help. She collapsed and had to be rushed to the hospital last year.
I’d say there’s a very good chance Trump gets to replace her in the next 5 years.
Too many empanadas?
I call her soda machine.
