Live from the East Room at the White House! Barack Obama announces his nomination of Solictor General Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.
10 a.m. EDT.
A lesbian socialist. Original.
Gaygan...needs a good Borking.
“It will help Obama with the Jewish and womans vote.”
NOT with Jewish woman’s vote or that of my mother or my sisters.....!
Now, he’s throwing out the “she recruited conservative scholars” at Harvard meme.
I cant even watch this SOB!!! Hate him.
I mute him immediately.
Please, not another tired old Yankee-Red Sox joke...
You’d think he’d learn to stay away from baseball given his previous flubs... (mom jeans, throwing like a girl, not knowing any White Sox players)
Note to Republicans who want to be re-elected....Vote NO!!!!!!
Kagan was a paid member of an advisory panel for the embattled investment firm Goldman Sachs, federal financial disclosures show. Kagan was a member of the Research Advisory Council of the Goldman Sachs Global Markets Institute, according to the financial disclosures she filed when President Obama appointed her last year to her current post. Kagan served on the Goldman panel from 2005 through 2008, when she was dean of Harvard Law School, and received a $10,000 stipend for her service in 2008, her disclosure forms show.
The advisory panel met once a year to discuss public policy issues and was not involved in any investment decisions, Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler said. Still, if Kagan is nominated to replace Stevens, senators will scrutinize those ties to Goldman Sachs, said Northwestern University law professor Lee Epstein.
Many liberal critics are unhappy with Kagan's arguments as solicitor general supporting the "state secrets" doctrine, detentions without trial, and other broad Obama claims of executive power to fight terrorism -- some of them similar to the Bush policies that liberals oppose.
Yes and why I listened every Wednesday at Noon to the air raid sirens blasting from Boeing’s in my youth. Or being forced to hurry in to a Civil Defense Shelter with my head down in a dark room wondering “if this was the end this time.” Send all the gay people to Siberia please.
Do you think she is holding his thesis hostage? Just a thought.
“She chose a life of service....”
Throwing out the old grandaughter of immigrants meme...mother a poor downtrodden school teacher, father a housing lawyer who represented the poor...
Her face is so ugly you can smash it into some dough and make gorilla cookies.
OMG - she had to step up on a step stool to speak at the mike. How embarrassing!
I had to leave the room.
What? No “this is a big f*ckin’ deal” from Biden?!!!!!
