Kagan has already given them the bad news, based on Obama’s reaction here.
I am surprised he didn't add a law degree to his resume.
It's certainly looking that way...
It is my hope that as things began to unravel, that more and more people will see the administration for what it is. Threatening the highest court? Maybe the SCOTUS has smoked out the imposter and also found the mole.
I agree. The little troll called her buddy on Thursday to tell him and it took all weekend to get the other 'Rats (Blumenthal, Leahy & Schumer) on board with the talking points.
There's no a doubt in my mind that her nomination was contingent on her not recusing herself from the case and that she would keep them informed early on the decision.
I agree, let’s just hope that his arrogant speech from a petulant man child is enough to thoroughly piss them off, and in their disgust OVERTURN WICKARD v FILBURN. Abolish 80% of the Federal Government in One Ruling. No that would be HOPE AND CHANGE.
1) the vote went against him and Obama is desperately trying to flip Kennedy before June
2) the vote went for him and Obama is positioning himself to take credit.
Based on his demeanor and tone of voice I’m going with Option 1.
IMHO the news was worse than expected.
If this is a 5-4 vote, Obama can spin it as political.
A 7-2 vote, with one of his own voting against him, is much harder to explain away.
