The Right Kind of Latino

July 14, 2009

Back in2003, then Robert Menendez, Senate NJ (D), then a Congressman said Miguel Estrada was the  wrong kind of latino.

Estrada- bilingual, Ivy League Education, poor upbringing

Sotomayor- conversant in Spanish, Ivy League education, poor upbringing

Difference- Estrada supported by Republicans and is conservative, waited two years but never got a vote.

Sotomayor supported by Democrats and is a liberal. Two months after nomination gets a hearing.

    This is the hypocrisy of the Democrats.

    This country could have had the first African-American President with Alan Keyes. Who knows where Miguel Estrada would be if he was confirmed in 2001 as the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
