Two stories today on how Obama goes a-courting.
On the day Justice Souter announced his resignation from the Supreme Court we wrote “we think the replacement, even with opposition, will likely be Latina Judge Sonia Sotomayo of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals“.
The appointment of Sotomayor will likely be confirmed by the Senate with a few bumps only. The appointment of Sotomayor is entirely predictable and not surprising in the least. Sotomayor will likely vote along the lines of Justice Souter. For all the hoopla publicity surrounding any Supreme Court appointment, for all the breathless hyperventilation on other web sites and “news” outlets, this one will likely not change much in the field of jurisprudence nor the direction of the court.
For Obama the Sotomayor appointment was close to a “must do” for the Latino and Women communities. This was not a high-minded, requires deep thought decision. It was a check the boxes decision. It is entirely consistent with Obama’s lack of everything except concern for his personal advancement.

The treacheries of Barack Obama came to full flower today in California.
Don’t expect too much analysis of how very responsible and how very treacherous Obama has been from other websites and “news” outlets. Others will concentrate on what the Sotomayor appointment says about Obama but few will dare write about the much more illuminating events today in California and what they say about Obama the treacherous.
The California Supreme Court upheld a voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage Tuesday, but it also decided that the estimated 18,000 gay couples who tied the knot before the law took effect will stay wed.
Demonstrators outside the court yelled “shame on you!”
The 6-1 decision written by Chief Justice Ron George rejected an argument by gay rights activists that the ban revised the California Constitution’s equal protection clause to such a dramatic degree that it first needed the Legislature’s approval.
The court said the Californians have a right, through the ballot box, to change their constitution.
Let us make clear – this was a foolish lawsuit whose real intent was to hide the complicity of gay community “leaders” in the passage of Proposition 8.
This was a foolish lawsuit because the issues presented to the court had already been litigated before the vote when gay marriage proponents made the same arguments before the same court. [The argument essentially was whether Proposition 8 was an amendment or merely a revision to the California constitution.]
Again, this was a foolish lawsuit intended to protect gay community “leaders” who sought to protect themselves, from a righteously angry gay community, by attempting to relitigate the already litigated issues.
These gay community “leaders” are complicit in this ugly episode because when it was time to stand up for their community and against Barack Obama these “leaders” remained silent.
We wrote about the complicity of gay community “leaders” in The Shame Of The Democratic Left, Part III:
The Democratic Left, and yes, Gay-American leaders, threw Gay-Americans under the bus this past year in order to worship at the unworthy Barack Obama’s altar. Now the Democratic Left and Gay-American leaders are whining that Obama has stabbed them in the back.
Not once during the primaries nor during the general election did these leaders hold Obama to account. Not once did these leaders threaten to withhold votes – the only language political thugs like Obama understand. Now they are whining.
Barack Obama has indeed stabbed Gay-Americans in the back. Barack Obama can’t be trusted… by friend nor foe… Obama simply can’t be trusted. But the very late protests by the Democratic Left are whines from hypocrites.
Gay-Americans must realize that Obama has gay-bashed in the past. If it comes down to getting votes from evangelical voters, socially conservative African-Americans or any constitutency group – Obama will betray Gay-Americans:
Now gay leaders and the Democratic Left are whining that Obama is not being nice. Where were these leaders when it counted? Hypocrites. Gay-Americans – Black Gay Americans too – will be the ones hurt because the so-called gay leadership and the Democratic Left sold them out.
More to the point, we wrote:
These same hypocrite/fools also knew that the Proposition 8 (Gay Marriage Ban) proponents were using Obama’s anti gay-marriage words in their literature and using Obama’s anti gay-marriage words in their automatic phone calls – particularly targeting African-Americans. Yet these hypocrite/fools did not demand that Obama personally campaign prominently against Proposition 8. On election day most California African-American voters celebrated by denying Gay-Americans a basic civil right and applauding ugly prejudice.
Obama went a-courting today. We expect Americans will get screwed.
