So Obama gets to nominate a Supreme Court Justice and he thinks that the court is supposed to be there for the underprivilaged, to right some kind of wrong. He even goes so far as to say MY JUSTICE.
WTF! MY JUSTICE. HIS JUSTICE. Are you kidding me? It's OUR Justice. OMG people, all you people who said give this man a chance. How are you liking this CHANCE you took now?
Justice is supposed to be BLIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is how candidate Obama described that view at a rally in Westerville, Ohio, on March 2, 2008:
"I want my justice to understand that part of the role of the court is to look out for the people who don't have political power," Obama said. "The people who are on the outside. The people who aren't represented. The people who don't have a lot of money; who don't have connections. That's the role of the court."
"(Obama) thinks judges should have empathy for certain litigants who come before them. Of course if you have empathy for everybody who comes before you, there are two sides to every case. If you have empathy for both sides then that's the same as having no empathy at all. So what he means is he wants empathy for one side and what's wrong with that is it is being partial instead of being impartial. A judge is supposed to have empathy for no one but simply to follow the law." -says Wendy Long, legal counsel to the Judicial Confirmation Network.
