Schumer Uses Rosa Parks To Slam Alito.

New York Senator Chuck Schumer made a rather harsh comparison between Rosa Parks and new Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito.

Schumer said "Alito, like Rosa Parks, can make history simply by virtue of where he sits."

Schumer, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, praised Parks for her civil rights courage while using that same courage and legacy as a slap at Alito.

"Will Alito, like Rosa Parks, use his seat to change the course of history for the better, or will he return it to the injustice of the past?" Schumer asked.

"Return it to the injustice of the past?" Is Schumer trying to say that Alito would bring back segragation if he is placed on the high court?

"It's sad that the president felt that he had to pick a nominee likely to divide America, instead of picking a nominee like Sandra Day O'Connor that had united America," Schumer said.

"United America?" For five years Senator Schumer and his liberal friends have been telling us, "We are the most divided in our history." They've been complaining about how divided we are. They said Bush promised unite us, not divide us, and he's been a divider not a uniter. They have been upset that we're not unified. So now we have Chuck Schumer a United States senator running around saying, "We need somebody who's going to keep us unified! Sandra Day O'Connor united us and we need to stay united."

So which is it Chuck? Are we united or are we divided? And how did Sandra Day O'connor unite us? Maybe it was when she cast the deciding vote that allowed the government to take your property and give it to a private developer to build a shopping center that would generator more tax dollars than your house under "emminent domain."

Clearly that should have united all freedom loving Americans together against her.
