    Factual is she has no judicial experience. We don't even know where she stands. This has potential for a highly activist judge. to which you all would love that. But it's repugnant to the US Constitution.....

    He nominated two men who uphold The Constitution.

    They don't go on fishing expeditions for foreign law, they don't have a social agenda other than upholding the law of the land, The Constitution.

    Men who do that, and support such behavior tend to be Republicans.

    What does that say about Lib's and their judicial activism?

    Re: AP source: Obama chooses Kagan for Supreme Court

    While slightly off topic, I'm going to post an article that was in the Washington Post last week. It is a very interesting read, IMO.

    Funny how only conservative judges seem to be labeled as being strict constructionists.

    The doctrine of original intent rests on a set of implicit assumptions about the framers as a breed apart, momentarily allowed access to a set of timeless and transcendent truths. You don't have to believe that tongues of fire appeared over their heads during the debates. But the doctrine requires you to believe that the "miracle at Philadelphia" was a uniquely omniscient occasion when 55 mere mortals were permitted a glimpse of the eternal verities and then embalmed their insights in the document.

    Any professional historian proposing such an interpretation today would be laughed off the stage. That four sitting justices on the Supreme Court -- Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts and Samuel Alito -- claim to believe in it, or some version of it, is truly strange. We might call it the Immaculate Conception theory of jurisprudence. Even more disconcerting is the fact that the very justices most disposed toward wrapping their opinions in the protective armor of original intent have consistently voted in support of the conservative political agenda championed by the Republican Party.

    Joseph J. Ellis - Immaculate misconception and the Supreme Court
    Yes, and anyone who doesn't vote that way is an activist judge.

    If original intent is a misnomer, we wouldn't need a constitution at all.

    I'm guessing at how quickly you responded to my post means that you did not read the entire article, unless you're an amazing speed reader.

    So we agree that Rehnquist was not qualified and made a bad Supreme Court Justice?

    Oh please! Where in the Constitution does it define corporations as "persons" entitled to the same rights as individuals.

    Alito and Roberts have a clear right-wing agenda. I guess thats what you guys call "activist" judges.
