Bush 41 defends Sotomayor

bush.skydiveToday George H.W. Bush celebrated his 85th birthday by jumping out of a plane. After the jump CNN Anchor Robin Meade talked politics with Bush 41. When they discussed Sotomayor, Bush said:

From CNN:

“I don’t know her that well but I think she’s had a distinguished record on the bench and she should be entitled to fair hearings. Not – [it’s] like the senator John Cornyn said it,” he told CNN. “He may vote for it, he may not. But he’s been backing away from these…backing off from those radical statements to describe her, to attribute things to her that may or may not be true.

“And she was called by somebody a racist once. That’s not right. I mean that’s not fair. It doesn’t help the process. You’re out there name-calling. So let them decide who they want to vote for and get on with it.”
