White House bristles at mention of Elena Kaganís sexuality
The Daily Caller ^ | May 10, 2010 | Jon Ward

Posted on 05/10/2010 1:16:47 PM PDT by DesertRenegade

Top White House officials bristled Monday when asked whether they think Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s sexuality will become an issue in her confirmation hearings.

“It’s not anything I’m going to get into,” said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, speaking to reporters in his West Wing office.

Gibbs was asked a handful of times about rumors that Kagan is gay, and gave terse responses each time.

Asked why the White House pushed back so aggressively when CBS News published a piece on its website (CBS appears to have pulled the piece) that said Kagan, if confirmed, would be the country’s “first openly gay justice,” Gibbs said it was not an issue to the president.

“We are going to defend the nominee that the president has chosen,” Gibbs said when asked if he thinks the rumors will be brought up during the confirmation process.

When asked what the White House was defending Kagan from, Gibbs said: “That’s just a broad answer.”

“I’m just not going to get into somebody who is doing what that person was doing on CBS’s website. This is about who she is going to be as a justice,” Gibbs said.

Ron Klain, chief counsel to the vice president and a key figure in the White House legal team, said: “Elena went through the same vet that everyone else goes through for the Supreme Court is all I’ll say.”

On a separate issue, Klain said that the administration will not immediately release memos written by Kagan when she worked at the White House under President Bill Clinton.

“I’m sure the committee will request those papers and we’ll reach an accommodation with the Clinton Library on that,” Klain said. “We’ve got to see what the committee wants to see and we’ll go from there.”

Call me crazy, but I don't think America is ready to have a bulldyke who calls her female husband 'Frank' making decisions that could affect this country for centuries.

The more dysfunctional the better as far as the kenyan is concerned. The longer the prison record, the larger the amount that was evaded on taxes, the more they hate America. There is no limit to the insanity.

Perhaps Westboro Baptist “Church” will show up at her confirmation hearings. ;-)

But seriously, since she’s already demonstrated her extreme anti-heterosexual bias at every opportunity, at this point her own “sexual orientation” is a moot point. We already know that she would side with the gays, and thus regardless of her personal life she is an enemy of moral governance.

You brought up a good point.
Most conservatives will have “tolerance” for minority cultures and lifestyles,

as long as the same courtesy is extended from them to us.

It isn’t.

Gay? I think we're jumping the gun a little here.

Let's first determine if she's actually a woman. She looks like the spawn of a bizarre Mike Myers/Nathan Lane/Matthew Broderick gene splice.

Given The One's predilection for masculine Clintonistas, can a nomination for Jake Reno be far behind?

Oh, Beltway Bob did NOT use the word BROAD (in gay purple) in a sentence about Kagan, did he??? LOL. Will the lesbians of the US protest his BIGOTED remarks about one of their 'sisters' (which I'm really not sure is a factual description of Kagan)?? /sarc

And FWIW, DR, I don't think you're crazy. I don't want another bigoted 'justice' on SCOTUS. Period. What is with all this crap about her being 'for the little guys/people/dienfranchised/whatever'??? A justice is NOT supposed to be FOR or AGAINST anyone--they are supposed to be UNBIASED and IMPARTIAL! D'oh!! >:-(

It would be very humorous were a Republican Senator to take this opportunity to ask whether Kagan believes the current president is a NBC, and if so, on what basis she drew that conclusion.

But I’m not holding my breath.

It has started already. Now that CBS has put the question out there, Katie Couric and her ilk can now say “some people are questioning whether Kagan should be BANNED from the nomination due to her sexual orientation” while insinuating it’s repubs or conservatives doing the questioning.

The libs are going to hammer the right if they make it about sex. And CBS is going to make sure The People think conservatives are obssessed with that aspect and the following the Constitution thing is only a secondary issue.

I’ve seen some of her dissertation and other policy decisions which are at least troubling.

The prevailing accusations throughout the conservative blogosphere are that she is a “communist lesbian.”

Is there a rock-solid source of information that confirms these accusations?

Reputable links without heresay, please...

Obama should pick a SCOTUS nominee who is a transgender Muslim who can’t speak English. That would be perfect.

I figured he’s either secret coding SEIU or the gay community with that lovely lavender tie—since there’s RUMORS about Kagan (just RUMORS, dadgumit, there’s absolutely NO proof she’s ‘playing for the other team’!!! Despite all those facts about her ‘significant other’!) I’m guessing the latter? ;-)

Yeah, I'd be happy with a Conservative landslide in 2010 and BO as a virtual lame duck (and a presidential loser) in 2012.

But, I gotta say, that won't happen. BO's legacy *must* be protected, at all costs. Can't have "The First Black One-Term Presidential Failure". So - IMHO - if it starts to look like he's going to fall flat on his face, I'd give it about a 1 in 3 chance for him to "decline to run for re-election" based on "Health Problems", or somesuch.

If Hillary! gets out of her SoS job before November of this year (so that she doesn't get splattered by the epic failure of the Dems) ... I'd up the chances of my scenario to 60-40 or better.

A lot depends on whether his ego will let him step aside, or not. I think that I'd rather retire a beloved leader (ok, he's not on FR, but in some places...) than stick around 2 or 3 years longer than necessary and get savaged like Bush did.

And Bush, for all of his faults, still did a fair amount of things right.... the press would have a field day with BO, especially if he gets elected to a 2nd term and they don't need to cover for him anymore.

Just my opinion.
