    Re: AP source: Obama chooses Kagan for Supreme Court

    As a liberal, I am very disappointed by Obama's pick of Kagan. Specifically for two reasons:

    (1) The legacy of Justice Stevens deserves a true liberal to fill his vacated spot.

    (2) Appointment of a true liberal is essential to balance out the far right picks that GWB put on the bench.

    (3) Obama wimped out in his first appointment with a moderate, Sotomayor.
    Kagan is another centrist who is only going to contribute to the court moving further to the hard right.


    I hope the Republicans filibuster and derail this nominee so that Obama will appoint a true liberal in this seat. America deserves balance on the court.

    Re: AP source: Obama chooses Kagan for Supreme Court

    Today it was made official that Obama has picked Kagan. Honestly I am strongly appalled with his pick.

    Kagan is an open socialist and has zero judiciary experience. Obama has clearly demonstrated that he is incompetent and unfit to make wise decisions. Seriously, he has nominated a judge who has no judicial experience and has advocated for socialism.

    Oh please....Kagan is so far from "socialist" it's laughable to make that statement.

    We could pray that Obama would pick someone who was leftist.....

    No.
    We need people that follow The Constitution.
    Stevens might be a lib, but was nominated by and R.

    Another dumb-ass move by the CCR's faction.

    So who is the leftist you'd pick?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Or we could pray that Obama picks a logical interpreter of the law and Constitution without trying to legislate a left-right political agenda

    Kagan is a socialist, here is an excerpt from a book she wrote.
    And then Ms. Kagan issues her call to action, her call for Socialists to unite in order to defeat "the entrenched foe." She writes, "Through its own internal feuding..the SP [Socialist Party] exhausted itself forever and further reduced labor radicalism in New York to the position of marginality and insignificance from which it has never recovered. The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism's decline, still wish to change America. Radicals have often succumbed to the devastating bane of sectarianism; it is easier, after all, to fight one's fellows than it is to battle an entrenched and powerful foe. Yet if the history of Local New York shows anything, it is that American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope." (pp. 129-130).

    I would agree with you except for the fact that GWB appointed two extreme far right justices with a hard right social agenda.

    Dating back to O'Connor, I have supported pretty much every pick (except Bork and Alito), I even lukewarmly supported Roberts nomination because I felt that, although he was far right, he brought some balance to the court.
