Liberals and their selective memory are just funny like that sometimes. The same loons who bounced the qualified Robert Bork with zealous tales drenched in rank partisanship, literally tried to incriminate Clarence Thomas during Senate confirmation hearings and even gave the experienced John Roberts a hard time, are now out and about threatening anyone who dares tries to block Sonia Sotomayor's appointment to SCOTUS:
New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) says if Republicans oppose Sonia Sotomayor, they'll do so at their "own peril."
"I think the confirmation process will be more of a test of the Republican Party than it is ofSotomayor," Schumer told reporters Tuesday. "It's a test for the Republican Party because she is a mainstream justice. ... Why would they oppose her? There's no really good reason."
Although Republicans say the Senate should take its time in considering Sotomayor's confirmation, Schumer said the timetable is up to Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.).
"I think people will look at the yes or no vote on the whole record, not on the question of procedures on the Judiciary Committee," he said.
