Richard Viguerie: Republicans' Defining Obama and Sotomayor is Huge

MANASSAS, Va., (christiansunite.com) -- The following is a statement by Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, concerning the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings for President Obama's Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor:

"Led by Senator Jeff Sessions, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are starting to do what the McCain campaign and the Republican Party failed to do in the 2008 election: defining Barack Obama, his ideology, and his unconstitutional, authoritarian approach to governing.

"By making the Sotomayor confirmation hearings about President Obama's governing philosophy-- including his beliefs that judges should change constitutional principles and the law--Senate Republicans are showing that Obama's views are radical and dangerous. As Senator Sessions said at the hearings, those views are so inconsistent with the Constitution that they could be 'disqualifying' for Obama's judicial nominee.

"Win, lose, or draw in this confirmation battle, that approach will pay huge dividends for Republicans. Exposing the President in these hearings will help Americans better understand that, constitutionally speaking, Obama cannot be trusted.

"Conservatives never lose ideological battles in the long run. Republicans, however, lose when they abandon conservative principles.

"The strategy of bringing Obama's views into these hearings obviously got under the skin of highly partisan Senator Patrick Leahy, the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, who lamented 'all the statements made about President Obama's philosophy.'

"So hats off to Senator Sessions and the other Republicans who 'get it'."
