Kagan Dangerous Choice for Supreme Court Justice

leave a comment »

I had hoped that Obama would get behind somebody that was a consensus candidate for the Supreme Court like Justices Alito and Roberts were.   I could have easily seen him going with an Alberto Gonzalez, John Yoo, or my personal favorite  Judge Mathis as a pick that both parties could get behind.  Unfortunately, Obama went with ultra-liberal Elena Kagan who has shown a disdain for the Constitution and the legal precedents our founding fathers set forth or even the newer guiding legal principles the Roberts court set forth in the Citizens United Case.

Reaction has been swift.  Congressman Jack Kimble (R-CA)  wrote on April 10th, “Right now, the Democrats have a majority, but we must not allow them to pack this court with another radical. We need only look at this nominee’s judicial record to see a long history of supporting liberal special interests and turning their back on the family values and fiscal conservatism that this country was founded on.  As I mentioned earlier, judicial temperament is just as important as strict adherence to the Constitutionalism. That is why I can’t understand why Obama has selected a nominee who is alternately bookishly withdrawn and prone to rage. Surely, there were other potential nominees who were better qualified.”

So far most criticism I’ve seen of Kagan on Twitter has come down to three things:

  1. She’s not very attractive
  2. She may be sexually attracted to women
  3. She’s an extremist

Any one of those traits should keep somebody from sharing the bench from a Constitutional scholar like Justice Scalia.  We have a big fight ahead of us folks.   Let’s get rolling.
