Richard J. Mundy wrote a letter published Wednesday that was headlined, “Sotomayor’s critics fight a losing battle.”
It is comforting to know that he can paint with such a broad brush that it will take in almost everybody when he asserts, “and many ordinary citizens like me believe strongly that she (Judge Sonia Sotomayor) deserves this appointment” (to the U.S. Supreme Court).
What opinion surveys has he coordinated? What telephone polls has he authorized? Does he speak from a basis of knowledge or is he, as many liberals are wont to do, just foisting his beliefs and leftist opinions upon the public?
I am among the “many ordinary citizens” he cites and I am opposed to Sotomayor’s nomination for two reasons: Obama is just capitulating to the liberal left in selecting a liberal judge, and he is pandering to the Latin American community, which helped put him in the White House.
The one thing you really have to hand our novice president is he certainly knows how to repay his debts.
