Laura Bush: Sonia Sotomayor ‘a very interesting and good nominee’ for U.S. Supreme Court

This according to the Associated Press:

Former first lady Laura Bush says she’s pleased that President Barack Obama nominated a woman for the Supreme Court.

“I think she sounds like a very interesting and good nominee,” Bush said of Sonia Sotomayor, the federal appeals judge Obama picked.

Mrs. Bush said in an interview broadcast Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that “as a woman, I’m proud that there might be another woman on the court. I wish her well.”

She was interviewed in Dallas, where the Bushes moved after their White House tenure.

Who cares what Laura thinks? You spineless leftist have never given a rats
behind about her opinion. And to be truthful, Mrs Bush isn’t going to come
out and be critical like the hags on the left.

Laura Bush wouldn’t know a good Supreme Court nominee if one jumped up and bit her on the ***

I love it when the party of irrelevance gets all riled up when one of their own agree with us crazy leftists. It’s priceless comedy. Thank you!! Now to completely establish yourselves as the party of irrelevance, please give us a few more years of GOP congressman/senators who like molesting male congressoinal interns and meeting up for some gay sex in airport bathrooms. You know, those core right wing christian values!?!

Since she is dumb enough to marry Bush I hace decided that the woman has no judgement. I always take the opposite position on any Bush. I am no longer supporting Sotomajor. Frist of all I thihk she is Pro-Life and sencondly a Bush supports her.

I’ve always felt sorry for Laura.

It’s hard for women married to homosexual males. Like most GOP wives, her’s is a hard row to hoe. Their husbands are angry and ashamed about their attraction to other men, and often drink and drug to excess about it. It’s got to be hard to know that your husband would rather be naked and nasty with a fat lardbutt like Karl Rove than spend a minute alone with a woman.

You folks like “Curly Girly-man” and “Copyleft” are straight crazy. It’s sad you disguise your insanity in the DNC talking points.

Strong effort on Laura’s part to save the GOP Latino vote. Good luck.

Wow, a classy move by a classy lady and you trolls come on here and spill the usual venom. It seems some of you would have jobs or a life altogether. Guess I am wrong on that one.

Yeah Copyleft, Laura should have married a honest faithful man like Billary and Mrs. Edwards.

She’s just being classy and pleasant. We don’t see this very often in politics. I have a hard time imagining Hillary or Michelle being nice to a nominee from another party. Both would smell blood and come running. You liberals posting here are a sick bunch. Also, a much more qualified Latino nominee by the name of Miguel Estrada was blocked by the dems for no reason.

Durden, don’t you know the only qualified minorities in the eyes of Democrats and Liberals are those who agree with them and walk in step with them?

More cowardly namejacking from the increasingly-frustrated impotent loser, I see!

Keep up the good work, ‘jacker! It’s fun to watch your raving and howling.

Laura Bush isn’t a politician and this is how non-politicians actually talk.And think.

Wow. You losers on the right are desperate for some anger management. If Obama were really a socialist, the goverment would pay for it. You might consider it.

Is it the right that is angry or is it the left. Laura made a gracious and kind statement because that is what kind and decent people do. And it is the left that get angry and try and tare her down and then the right is called angry?

“Wow. You losers on the right are desperate for some anger management.”

Anger management? Who? Those who could be considered “on the right” are not the ones who are portraying anger on this particular blog. CopyLeft and Will Jones are not people I would consider on the right. They are the ones with the angry posts.

After my Dr’s appoint today for my Ed, I asked the Doc if it was possible that I may be namehijacking myself. He said yes and reminded me of my mutiple-mental illnesses. He then suggested that I stop with the ED treatments, cause I am not getting any anyway. He said that I should focus on the mental side and the the physical will follow. He is a good doc, eventhough he is a conservative.

The town of Soto sounds Mexican and could be in Texas. Is there no doubt that the former Firstlady of Texas would support the Soto mayor?

The Bush’s did not move to Dallas only Laura. W. is still in Crawford, TX, stop saying they when only she is in Dallas. Laura, has nothing to do with that Murderer and more. Can we pull the cover off him for once. Thanks Laura for coming over on the right side.

More chuckles for the namejacker. Isn’t he adorable, folks? The sad little clown is just so CONSUMED with impotent rage that he’s reduced to putting my name on his own perpetually-idiotic posts!

Now THAT’s what we like to see from the Republitards–desperation and hopeless rage.
