    Corporate interests posing as a grassroots conservative group are behind attacks on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, a RAW STORY investigation has found.

    The Committee for Justice (CFJ), an astroturf group established by big business in July 2002 to create an appearance of popular support for President Bush’s judicial nominees, is now leading the effort to oppose the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the US Supreme Court.

    CFJ’s Executive Director Curt Levey has been sending out press releases and making media appearances to promote the theme that Sotomayor is racist and biased in her rulings, drawing his talking points largely from a speech in which she suggested that when it came to race and sex discrimination cases, it was possible that “a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences … would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

    “It’s pretty disturbing,” Levey told The Hill. “It’s one thing to say that occasionally a judge will despite his or her best efforts to be impartial … allow occasional biases to cloud impartiality. But it’s almost like she’s proud that her biases and personal experiences will cloud her impartiality.”

    CFJ was created at the urging of former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MO) – who has himself been plagued by allegations of racism.

    This is perfect evidence of the tactics used by the left and Obama in particular.

    Find an enemy or hated entity and BLAME them or it for something you want that is opposed. They did it to perfection against the Bankers just recently and the non story about LEGAL contracts being PAID.

    I don't doubt for a second that Sotomayor's life's experience makes her racist.

    Whose hasn't?

    Once again, it must be a big mean corporation to blame for evil perpetuated against a hard working liberal. It's not like this woman's own racists statements could be dogging her. Yeah,, it's the corporation.

    well, i don't have to read the raw story, or be a rocket scientist, nor have I stayed at a holiday inn recently... to know that ''this'' is how it works in the land of politics...and it is done by those involved in politics on both sides of the aisle....this is how lobbyists work....the sneakier, or more deceptive on who hired them to do ''the job'', the better, and done by the higher paid Lobbying firms imo.

    Also, sending out talking points, from our politician's campaign, given to the media via email or given to Drudge or key blogs to stir up the pot, is the same type thing to me...

    AND I hate hate hate all of it...every itty bit of it....:(

    care
