More Obama Ambuguity

Obama has made a very confusing statement at his Supreme Court nomination of Sonya Sotomayor.

"[Supreme Court Justices] are charged with the vital task of applying principles put to paper more than twenty centuries ago to some of the most difficult questions of our time." ~Barack Obama (Punctuation uncertain.)

I have to wonder to what he was referring. What principle was put to paper 2,000 years ago that a Supreme Court Justice would have to apply today?

I see two possibilities:

1) He is referring to the Constitution, but mistakenly says twenty centuries instead of twenty decades; after all, the purpose of the Supreme Court is judging Constitutional law.

2) He is referring to the Bible, which was at least completed more than 2,000 years ago, which would certainly contain principles that are still validly applied today.

But Obama is a secular Socialist, and he was nominating a secular Socialist judge; why would he want to bring up the Bible at such a time and place, since it is common opinion that it is inapplicable, outdated, and intolerant?

It may be that he is playing off of Sotomayor's one-time record of deciding against federal money being spent on abortion clinics, thus trying to appeal to the Christians.

Judge Andrew Napolitano (not related to the crazy-lady at DHS) said he knows Sotomayor, and she's the most liberal (in the modern sense) person in the President's list of possible nominees!

So, either Obama has no idea how old the Constitution is, or he has decided to start applying the principles of the Bible in his decision making.

(I suppose he could be talking about the Quran, since it's not quite as old as the Bible
, but who can know?)

Didn't he also refer to 57 states? The man's got a number problem.

Who says centuries when they mean decades? Really?

Or of course, he might be trying to play pretend Christian. Well it's not very convincing!

Thanks for the comment, Adam!

Pretend Christians are usually unconvincing after about five minutes of conversation, but his interview, where he refers to his "Muslim faith", takes the cake!

Actually, he thought we had 6o states:


What a buffoon!

Are you sure Obama is a socialist? I was pretty sure he was communist, he just hasn't shown it as much.

Oh, I don't know for sure. The two ideologies are so similar, I don't think one or the other has made a very clear lead.

He can be either one, or a chimera of both, I would say.
