Romney: I disagree with Newt and Rush on Sotomayor

On Fox News Sunday, Mitt Romney claims aspects of Sotomayor's record are "troubling", but flatly disagrees with Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh on allegations that Sotomayor is a racist.

WALLACE: What do you think of Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh calling her a racist?

ROMNEY: I disagree with them. I think this is a process where you have an individual who is intelligent, well-educated, with an extensive record. She deserves a full and fair hearing.... I think, in the final analysis, [the Senate] will make a decision based upon her clarification of some very troubling comments and also her discussion of some cases that are troubling.
