Limbaugh Stuck on Fail
Because it was so successful last time around, Rush Limbaugh’s doubling down on that “failure” meme that has won him so much praise, and converted so many fence-sitters to the conservative cause. (Not.)
“Do I want her to fail? Yeah. Do I want her to fail to get on the court? Yes. She’d be a disaster on the court,” he said. “Do I still want to Obama to fail as president? Yeah. … He’s going to fail anyway, but the sooner the better here so that as little damage can be done to the country.”
I don’t really understand why Rush Limbaugh and social conservatives like Mike Huckabee are so opposed to Sotomayor; you’d think they would be pleased by rulings like this:
In Center for Reproductive Law and Policy v. Bush, Sotomayor upheld the Bush administration’s implementation of the Mexico City Policy which requires foreign organizations receiving U.S. funds to “neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations”. Sotomayor held that the policy did not constitute a violation of equal protection, as the government “is free to favor the anti-abortion position over the pro-choice position, and can do so with public funds”.
