Despite Warning, Rush Limbaugh Keeps Criticizing Sotomayor

| by

Robert Gibbs at the White House yesterday warned
people like me to be very careful about what we say about Sonia
Sotomayor. So, ladies and gentlemen, I want you to turn your radio up
because I'm going to have to whisper this so that they don't hear this at the
White House. Are you ready? In the year 2004, Supreme Court nominee
Sonia Sotomayor ruled that ownership of a gun is not a constitutional
right. That case is at present being appealed before the US Supreme
Court, as are a couple other of her cases. She ruled in this fashion as a
judge.

President Obama could have chosen a different Hispanic or a different female,
but he chose Sonia Sotomayor because she reflects his own racial
attitudes. Let's be honest about this. He's got anger about race in
this country; so does she. It cannot be denied. Can I give you a
Thomas Jefferson quote? Thomas Jefferson quote in a letter he wrote to
Charles Hammond August 18th, 1821. It's 188 years later:

"It
has long, however, been my opinion, and I have never shrunk from its
expression... that the germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the
constitution of the federal Judiciary;... working like gravity by night and by
day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step
like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped."
