Skip to comments.A Veteran Puts Kagan to Shame

It is a remarkable fact that President Obama has nominated to the Supreme Court a woman who, as dean of Harvard Law School, discriminated against military recruiters in violation of federal law. Remarkable, but true. Yesterday, our friend Pete Hegseth testified in opposition to Kagan's confirmation at the invitation of Republican members of the Judiciary Committee. I find it interesting that his perspective--no doubt representative of most Americans--is one that the Democratic members did not think it necessary to consider as part of the confirmation hearing. Pete stated this part of the case against Elena Kagan eloquently:

Constitution? What’s that? Ohhhh, you mean that old document that doesn’t apply anymore.. /sarcasm
And pointedly I might add. He was fabulous and even Hatch seemed moved.
Excellent. I hope everyone takes 5 minutes to watch the video. I couldn’t help but wonder what Sessions and Hatch were thinking while he was talking. I thought perhaps Specter was sleeping but maybe he was reading a handout of the guy’s talk. This guy can’t be labeled a kook or right wing nut job....but that won’t stop the ignorant from trying. He put in his time and did his job honorably. More than we can say for most of the folks he’s addressing his comments to.
The list, ping
Wow. Powerful statement.
He is to sane for our Congress.

Prepared STATEMENT: Pete Hegseth Prepared Remarks for Kagan Confirmation Hearings
If one of the conservatives on the court goes down while Obama is there, that will be serious.
Just when I think I couldn’t be more thankful and proud of our military...wow...God bless him.
Wow!! BTTT !!
Thank you Captain. You put all those worthless deadbeats in the hearings with their self-importance to SHAME. They truly are a disgrace and must be removed. Thank you again Captain. Your statement falls on deaf ears to those slugs behind their little name plates but it sure resonates with US, the “small people”, the surfs.
OUTSTANDING VIDEO - SEND TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS! Tell them to fill their congressmen’s mail boxes with VOTE NO on Kagan! Her breaking Federal law should have been enough to sink her nomination! That’s for anyone who believes the law means anything. VIDEO LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5w-E55fZ1c&feature=player_embedded
Never count your Hatches before they chicken.
And what excuse to deny confirmation will the Republicans have if they let this one go through without a filibuster.
