– You Decide: Any Concerns About Obama’s Supreme Court Pick?

After a long technically-induced absence (my PC crashed and I finally broke down and bought a Mac to replace it), I’m ready to get back into the topics of the day and my thoughts.

Do I have any concerns about new SCOTUS nominee Elena Kagan? You bet I do! First, she was nominated by our socialist POTUS. No one nominated by BHO is to be trusted. Look at the list of failed cabinet nominees from a year ago. Second, Kagan has no judicial experience. She has a distinguished educational background, which should indicate her preparation to be a constitutionally-based judge. However, with no decision-rendering experience, she is an unknown quantity as to which way she might lean when acting as a judge. Third, Kagan has been linked to the Goldman Sachs scandal (via Michelle Malkin). Fourth, she speaks like the disciple of a populist. She’s just like “ordinary Americans” and she’s “compassionate.” This all sounds to me like someone who supports a “living Constitution” rather than being a strict constitutionalist.

My hope is that the Senate Judiciary Committee grills Kagan relentlessly. I’m anxious to see how she stands up to Sen. Hatch, who ripped Sonya Sotomayor six ways from Sunday… politely. In the end, with the Senate holding 59 votes, Kagan stands a good chance of being approved. Being only 50 years old, she stands a chance of affecting the lives of all Americans for many years to come. – You Decide: Any Concerns About Obama’s Supreme Court Pick?
