Sonia Sotomayor: We don’t make law (hee hee)


One of the names that’s surfacing as a potential Supreme Court justice is Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

Those who believe that judges should interpret the law and not create new law from the bench should be alarmed that this person’s name is in consideration.

In this video from a conference in 2005, Sotomayor displays her contempt for the proper roll of judges. Her attitude is more like what we might expect of a guest on The View or The Ellen DeGeneres Show — either of which will probably be happening soon.

Part of her remarks: “I know this is on tape and I should never say that because we don’t make law I know [audience laughter] … um, I, okay, I know, I know….I’m not promoting it, I’m not advocating it, I’m, you know [Sotomayor laughter] okay.”

    She’s scary for a variety of reasons!

    I’m surprised that she admitted the truth. Wouldn’t she have to be chummy with the groups she described to site their playbook?

    now that she’s been named this morning, wonder how long it’ll be until this video is erased from the internet?

    Wonder or not whether main stream media has the guts to report this video.

    Another fine example of a fine appointment by BO. You’d think in this day and age people would be vetted better, but like everything else, this will get swept under the rug… Funny how only Michael Savage is talking about this.
