Possible Supreme Court Nominee Sotomayor Doesn't Understand Constitution: "court of appeals is where policy is made". (Video)

UPDATE: He Picked Her! Hide the kids!

Obama's likely Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor on tape saying that the "court of appeals is where policy is made".

Really? Judges make policy? With all due respect, that's a complete and total misrepresentation of the Constitution! She even admits it, but if this isn't a prime example of judicial activism, I don't know what is!

But even worse, this is exactly the kind of radical mentality Liberals like Barack Obama support.

Elections have consequences!

From Conservative Nation:

Somebody needs to tell Sonia Sotomayor that the US Court Of Appeals is not a policy-making body.

Obama’s leading Supreme Court candidate said in 2005 that the “Court of appeals is where policy is made”. But it gets better, because she said it on tape. But wait, it gets even better, because she knew she was being taped and postscripted her comment with “…and I know this is on tape and i should never say that..”

Sotomayor is, apparently, not known to be among the brightest in her field, but to say something that is just so….counter to what the job of a court of appeals judge really is goes to demonstrate both her lack of respect for the judiciary and the degree to which she is unfit to sit on the Supreme Court.
