Why don’t Republicans tell voters what Democrats are up to? The immigration scam, the deficit spending scam, the race card…. the Dems are malicious and treasonous in much of their behavior, yet they get away with passing themselves off as being compassionate and caring. “This is a sinister approach to politics that’s going to get […]


Enough Said

30Jun10

She’s confessed to being a progressive, so why should anyone vote in favor of Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. Why, if liberals have created the precedent for blocking nominees based on political philosophy, should the GOP not follow suit? The president, himself, voted against the Estrada nomination based on political differences alone? “There is […]


Liberal Flag

30Jun10

Chris Matthews is flying the flag of the leftist media – that’s the formula for MSNBC. But liberals are supposed to be all about elevating the debate. They love complaining about bombastic political discourse. Describing Kagan as a liberal Obama prototype from the “high academia” of the Ivy League, Matthews proceeded to frame her opponent, […]


Just Say No!

30Jun10

Kagan can’t do it. A softball question on whether there’s a limit to the liberal willingness to let the commerce clause destroy the intentions of the Founders, and she just won’t take a swing at it. Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) asked Kagan about the (health care) law in a round-about way late today. He gave […]


Elenatudes

28Jun10

Elena Kagan’s platitudes in front of the Judiciary Committee today were more than Senator Al Franken could tolerate. “We don’t have any substantive evidence to demonstrate your ability to transition from a legal scholar and political operative to a fair and impartial jurist,” Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) told her. Beyond that, Republicans made it clear […]


Not Optimistic

28Jun10

The most obvious thing in the world is that no one who cares about the future of our country should be supporting the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan. She’s a carefully crafted stealth weapon designed to torpedo the constitution. Appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said it was “conceivable” that […]


Weakened House

06Jun10

Why is the White House scared that new documents reveal Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan to be a liberal? Chief CBS Legal Correspondent Jan Crawford was on Face the Nation today, and she expressed her confusion over why they are acting like liberal is a dirty word. “These documents have her squarely within mainstream liberal […]


Mind the Left

17May10

Glenn Greenwald from Salon was great on ABC’s This Week on Sunday. Especially fine was when he slapped around former White House Counsel Greg Craig for playing defense lawyer and claiming that Elena Kagan is the most qualified nominee to the Supreme Court of his lifetime. Great stuff. Now, considering that Craig defined Kagan’s politics […]


Way Back When

13May10

In the old days, Barack Obama was an honest man… a man of integrity. That is, at least, according to Elena Kagan, his Supreme Court nominee. Since becoming president, I get the impression that if he found a true statement in any of his speeches, he’d wring the neck of his teleprompter. All I hear […]


To Consider

11May10

Some things to consider… …from today’s Boston Globe: The economy needs a half million new jobs every month for the next four years, just to return to the prerecession unemployment rate of 2006. And that economy was nothing to brag about, with average wage growth lagging behind inflation since 2001. 500,000 jobs a month! Will […]


Nuff Said

10May10

From Marco Rubio, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Florida, in response to the nomination of a stealth Obama leftist to the supreme court. My judicial philosophy is clear and it is consistent: I will only support judges who have demonstrated a convincing record of respect for the rule of law and respect for the […]


Fight Brewing

09Apr10

So Justice Stevens is going… which means, perhaps, that the White House wants to energize the base with a big fight in advance of the November mid-terms. Politico has the story. Sources close to the process have previous said the president and his advisers are focused primarily on several potential nominees who were considered last […]
