As a senator, Obama supported the failed Democrat's filibuster against the confirmation of Bush's nominee, Judge Alito.
Now, he says, "What I hope is that we can avoid the political posturing and ideological brinksmanship that has bogged down this process, and Congress, in the past."
So he is saying, don't do what I did. Why would he say that? Because it's wrong? I guess he's not so smart after all, huh?
He also said, "her record makes clear that she is fair, unbiased and dedicated to the rule of law."
But his judge said, "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."
Yep, that's fair and unbiased!
