Inhofe on Sotomayor

All over the internet is the reaction of conservatives and liberals alike to the nomination of U.S 2nd Circut Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor by President Obama.

Now the chance of Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) supporting Sotomayor’s nomination to the highest court in the land is about as likely as seeing snow fall in the deserts of the Sahara, after all he was one of only about two dozen Senator’s to oppose her previously.

Here is a piece of the statement released by his office:

“Of primary concern to me is whether or not Judge Sotomayor follows the proper role of judges and refrains from legislating from the bench. Some of her recent comments on this matter have given me cause for great concern. In the months ahead, it will be important for those of us in the U.S. Senate to weigh her qualifications and character as well as her ability to rule fairly without undue influence from her own personal race, gender, or political preferences.”

One thing everyone should ask Inhofe in reaction to this statement. Has James Inhofe as a white male ever come under “undue influence” from his own personal race or gender?

Digg!
