Only A Poor Choice of Words?

Judge Sotomayor and the Obama administration have stressed the point that her quote about Latina’s making better judgments than white men was a “poor choice of words.” The only trouble is that she said it during a self-written prepared speech, not off the cuff. Then Obama claimed that the sentence was taken out of context. The only trouble with that argument is another sentence in the same speech: "Personal experiences affect the facts that judges choose to see."

Choose to see?
