No. 3 Republican to back Sotomayor for high court

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate’s No. 3 Republican announced Thursday he’d break with the rest of his party’s leaders to support Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, who’s in line to become the first Hispanic justice.

Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander said he was voting for President Barack Obama’s nominee despite his differences with her, particularly on gun rights.

“Even though Judge Sotomayor’s political and judicial philosophy may be different than mine, especially regarding Second Amendments rights, I will vote to confirm her because she is well qualified by experience, temperament, character and intellect to serve,” Alexander said in a speech on the Senate floor.

Alexander, a conservative, is only the sixth Republican to publicly line up with majority Democrats to back Sotomayor, a native of Bronx, N.Y. and a federal appellate court judge. She’s virtually guaranteed to be confirmed in a vote next week, and is expected to join the Supreme Court in time for an earlier-than-usual meeting in September to hear a campaign finance case.

No. 3 Republican to back Sotomayor for high court

This article calls Alexander a *conservative*. That is as far from the truth as anything that could possibly be said. Lamar Alexander is lower than POND SCUM. There is NO WAY in hell that ANY Conservative would vote for Sonia Sotomayor, I would say that the good people of Tennessee have their work cut out for them and I sincerely hope that this RINO SOB Alexander is currently enjoying what will be his final term in office.

conservative – adjective
1. disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.
2. cautiously moderate or purposefully low: a conservative estimate.
3. traditional in style or manner; avoiding novelty or showiness: conservative suit.
4. (often initial capital letter) of or pertaining to the Conservative party.

conservative –noun
8. a person who is conservative in principles, actions, habits, etc.
9. a supporter of conservative political policies.
10. (initial capital letter) a member of a conservative political party, esp. the Conservative party in Great Britain.

Lamar Alexander needs the above definitions SLAPPED upside his RINO head!

A Conservative doesn’t vote FOR an anti-gun SCOTUS nominee. A RINO votes for anything his Democratic and Libber brethren tell him to vote for. Lamar Alexander can’t even spell the word Conservative, much less define it.

Sen. Alexander, if you really feel that you must kiss Obama and Sotomayor’s asses, the next time, can you just do it over a beer in a motel room somewhere?

RINO - noun

    How can a conservative like me remain with the Republican Party when its representatives like (Alexander and Graham) continue to abandon the fundamental tenants of conservativism? Clearly, their agenda is neither conservative nor representative of their constituency; I am therefore, officially removing my name from the Republican Party and am declaring myself an independent. I’ve had enough of the 2 faced political BS that is prevalent in both parties.

    Gawfer, I am SO proud of you…

    I hope that I can open even more eyes in these matters, but if I just convert 1, and you being that 1, I have done a great job for America…

    RINOs and POSERS, Americans CAN stop this BS, but we all have to take the stand that my buddy Gawfer just took..

    alexander is nothing more than a rino suckass wanting to get relected by the hispanic votes. You’re right Fred & Gawfer, I don’t want my name OR support affiliated in any way with either of the corrupt ass party’s.

    She will pass, but we can make it known to those who voted for her that they will be removed in Nov. 2010.

    Just have the GOP phone the IRS and that will be the end of her if she’s like all of Obama’s other picks. hahaha
    Ooops forgot, they get to do whatever they want. No matter how Corrupt they are.
    Stop the world I want off. Our country is in so much trouble.

    Lamar Alexander? Conservative? …………………………….LMAO Jiminy crickets! What a flippin’ joke! At every event I’ve attended, there are STACKS of papers, signed by residents of Tennessee, basically a ‘vote of no confidence’ in him. We’ve been trying to find a way to do a recall on him, but haven’t been able to get a straight answer from anyone in Nashville. Doesn’t mean we won’t keep trying. He has GOT to go! Along with every other piece of crap stinking up OUR nation’s capital.
