President Barack Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to be the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice today, and the media is responding as expected. The White House narrative is being adhered to with stunning precision.
The real problem will be defeating her nomination. It will be impossible to do. If any Republican tries, the Democrats will immediately scream racism. The Democrats will accuse Republicans of the worst kind of discrimination. The media will gladly take the bait and run with the meme. What’s more, I can’t think of one Republican who would have the guts to deny her the seat on the court.
The Republicans are too afraid of losing what’s left of the Hispanic vote to stand on principal.
So, the only thing to do is highlight her record. Pour through her past decisions and bring to light her controversial statements. Expose Sotomayor as a leftist bench legislator. Make this a case against Barack Obama. For every mention of a wacko liberal decision made by Sotomayor, link it to a current policy of Barack Obama and use it to educate voters who still see the man as a modern day Christ.
It’s the only thing the Republicans can do. But, it won’t be enough.
Sonia Sotomayor will be confirmed, and the country will suffer through her policy making for decades to come.
