Rush: Sotomayor the "Antithesis of a Judge . . . "

By Rick Pearcey • May 26, 2009, 02:53 PM

In response to Barack Obama's pick of Sonia Sotomayor to replace David Souter on the Supreme Court, this from Rush Limbaugh on today's radio program:

Sonia Sotomayor needs to be opposed by the Republicans as far as they can take it, because the American people need to know who Barack Obama really is, and his choice of Sonia Sotomayor tells everybody, if we will tell the story of her, who he is.

He got up in his announcement and said everything about her that isn't true, that she's a great constitutionalist; that she doesn't use personal opinion; that she understands what her role is and the oath is of a Supreme Court justice.  She has done just the opposite of that.  She is a hack like he is a hack in the sense that the court is a place to be used to make policy, not to adjudicate cases, not to adjudicate constitutional law but to make policy. (emphasis added)
