“Kagan received 31 “no” votes when she was nominated to be Solicitor General and she will likely receive more this time around, though it is unclear whether any Republicans will mount a filibuster — which would be hard pressed to receive 40 votes to be sustained.

Senator Arlen Specter, the pro-abortion Democrat who voted against Kagan when he was a Republican and was critical of her recent testimony, could wind up as the only vote against Kagan from Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. Though whether he would go as far as supporting a filibuster is another question.”

Present GOP leadership simply lacks the balls to stop this witch and her Muslim Puppeteer. All this posturing about not supporting her is another RINO Kabuki Show. If they were SERIOUS about keeping this unqualified Marxist Menace off SCOTUS, they would re-locate their backbones, guts and testacles and filibuster her appointment. And Boehner would the guts he obviously lacks to squeeze the life out of any GOP Senator who threatened not to support it.

Kagan needs to be stopped. Delaying the nomination will help the GOP find more opponents to this Marxist.

There needs to be a scorched earth policy here. If Kagan is confirmed, she needs to be bruised and bloodied in the process of receiving 51 votes.
