I have been an attorney for 25 years,

Until I learned more about him, I was excited by Obama for all the reasons most are; he is at first blush idealistically inspiring.

His idealism, however, now appears sophomoric based on his ideas regarding what he thinks makes for a 'good Federal Judge". Here's a quote from a July 17, 2007 speech to Planned Parenthood:

"We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom. The empathy to understand what it's like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old."

Sorry, but thats totally WRONG and COMPETELY antithetical to the whole idea of the RULE OF LAW IN SOCIETY.

Such sensitivities might serve an admirable legislator, but what nothing to do with judging. NO JUDGE should be swayed simply based on whichever party in a controversy stirs his or her empathy and emotion.

The statue of the figure of Justice is shown as being blind and weighing a scale for this very reason.  If sympathy is supposed to have any place in a Court, its for the jury, NOT the JUDGE.

For the Presidential Candidate of one of the major political parties to hold this kind of idea is very, very frightening.

..one can sense the sophomoric tension by simply watching Michelle Obama at the convention..

.. she looks extremely frightened ..

I actually agree that the law should be applied free of emotion, but I don't think it's scary at all or in any way revealing that a presidential candidate would say this.

Relax Dixie, this one is no more or less manufactured and skewed than the ones you cited in your other thread.

We can all choose to either believe these things or not. What leads me to believe the worst about him are his associations. A hateful preacher and mentor for 20 years, a friend and associate who as of this day is unapolagtic for his terrorist bombings in our country, a wife with a history of angry, anti-American speaches and writings. A man is going to be judged by his associations and I think that's why Obama doesn't have a 15 point lead right now. Just my little opinion.

No, as citizens of a country that gives us the right to vote, we have the responsibility to find out the truth behind the campaign BS, not to continue to wallow in paranoid ignorance.

What friend and associate of Obama's bombed the country? What did Michelle Obama say that is anti-american?

You're piling ignorance upon more ignorance, building one false and biased conclusion upon another, one half truth upon another half truth.

William Aires bombed a New York City police station and our Pentagon in the 60's and on September 11th, 2001 he said that he regretted not doing more. Obama went to Aires' home for advice when he political career was just taking off and Obama has given speeches with and served on a board with this man.

Michelle Obama said in a speech last year "For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country". She said she was only proud now because her husband was running for president. She also said that "America is a downright mean country." I'd also be interested to read her college thesis. Some say that it is a racially charged and hateful rant. I don't know if that's true, which is why I'd like to read it.

I thought liberals were all about being friends with those who want to wipe us out. Those pic should make you smile original.gif. Post a few of Clinton doing the same thing. Let's be fair here.

What would be the point? Clinton wasn't the president when a member of the Saudi royal family organized the deaths of 3000 american civilians. Perhaps if he were, they would have expended more effort in catching him.

Oh for ****'s sake, a 1960's radical? That Obama spoke to for political advice two decades ago? Are you intentionally trying to use the "terrorist" word to make an association with Obama and ME terrorists? I think you are. A member of the Weather Underground. He didn't kill anyone, and he is now a professor at the University of Illinois.

So what? That's not anti-american. That's honesty. So she wasn't proud of america during her adult life until her president ran for president. And America can be downrigh tmean. What's the context? Of both those statements?

You know what, you are too far gone. It won't matter what happens or what's said, you've already drank more than your fair share of Kool Aid. You're biased right off, and you're going to find the worst you possibly can no matter what obama says or does.

ah, there it is. You aren't a concerned citizen weighing your options and asking quesitons. You're a conservative pretending to do so to advance your ideas. You're the worst kind of citizen, one who embellishes when it suits them and pretends to be asking open minded questions while pushing a conversation of innacurate partial truths designed to paint a further innacurate picture.

"I would not have nominated Clarence Thomas. I don't think that he was a strong enough jurist or legal thinker at the time for that elevation."

This from a 3 1/2 year Senator, now the Democratic Presidential nominee. Heh!
