The filibuster should be relegated to extreme circumstances, and I don't think Elena Kagan represents that

A homosexual socialist anti American supreme court justice appointed by a foreign born socialist muslim falsely occupying the office of president and you don't think it represents an extreme circumstance? You're an idiot.

I believe that Senator Kyl is dead wrong on this one.

We all need to call his offices and let him know beyond any doubt that Kagan must NOT be confirmed.

I believe he is up for re-election in 2012.

Time to start planning on taking out the trash.

Looks like Arizona needs 2 new Senators.
If A dyed in the wool avowed socialist doesn’t trigger a filibuster, then Our once great nation is truly lost.

Grrrrr....

As if I wasn't disgusted enough with the unprincipled invertebrates that pass for Republican Senators already. Kagan is the most virulently Leftwing pick for the Supreme Court in history, by far. If that isn't "extreme circumstances" I don't know what would be. These people are destroying our country.

They should filibuster everything.

These incumbents are simply not paying attention.

Stop Obama at every single thing...

As far as I'm concerned, the decision not to filibuster this woman is equal to a vote to gut the First and Second Amendments and the rest of the Bill of Rights, kill babies, open the borders, grant amnesty to the whole damned world, destroy the institution of marriage and the natural family, and to demoralize and destroy the United States military.

It's a breach of the oath of office.

Someone should ask one of these bozos (senators) in a live news conference (do they even give these anymore?) the following: “What would it take for you to NOT endorse one of Obama’s picks for SC?”

She pushes the old Soviet policy of, “Say anything you like, just don’t say anything you don’t like” as a replacement for the First Amendment and that’s not “extreme”? Earth to Jon! Try to focus, Jon!

The governor and legislators of Arizona ought to be the ones in Congress. Kyl is failing the people of Arizona and the people of American. If he doesn’t recognize what a radical extreme Leftist Kagan is and the necessity of filibustering her nomination and fighting to reject her, he is out to lunch.

Exactly.

There is a civil war. Its currently "civil", but it is a war nonetheless. Its conservatives versus the statists. If a battle is given up, it yields time (a precious commodity to them) for them to mount another battle. There is crap-n-tax, immigration not-reform, and others, that must be opposed. Here is a golden opportunity to limit the statists time with these other efforts: prolong and fight Kagen, win or lose... for more battles are to be waged.

Kyl is only marginally better than McCain. He voted for a HIGHLY controversial Obama appointment last year, and his office turned a completely deaf ear to my complaint. I look forward to working for his removal.

Jon Kyl: GOP won't filibuster Kagan

It's time to give useful idiot Jon Kyl , the Robert Bennett treatment and retire him for good.
Hey, Kyl, we will not forget when you run for reelection. Who on earth goes into a chess game, and telegraphs his intention to lose to his opponent, before the game even begins?

No surprise there, why would a fellow traveler filibuster another like minded fellow traveler?

Kyl's another one of those Romney looking, sleazy type used car salesman looking dickheads.

These RepubliCrat clowns need to resign so we can get some real conservative blood in the Congress.

I’m tired of seeing them surrender without a fight when our qualified nominees are totaly destroyed by the democrat party.

How long are we going to allow this to go on?

In foreign policy, Democrats believe in unilateral disarmament. The rinos like Kyl believe in political disarmament.
Why can’t this dummy keep his cards close to vest and say that he reserves the right to retain all options as the situation unfolds?

What Kyl is doing is coming from the leadership of the US Senate.

Most of the posters in this thread are from states who don’t even have Republican US Senators in their own states. Maybe we should start there first.

It's the job of any Constitution-loving Senator to filibuster anybody who thinks the First Amendment doesn't mean what it says and Second as well.

It's the job of anybody with commonsense to do what it takes to keep someone who has violated laws, namely those allowing military recruiters on college campus, from having a seat on the high court.
