Did Justice Kagan embarrass herself during the Hobby Lobby oral arguments?
American Thinker ^ | 3/30/2014 | Thomas Lifson

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Liberals can not be embarrassed. They will instantly re-write their memories to erase anything that could be considered embarrassing if it had actually happened. If it’s shown to her in the official record she’ll say that’s not what she meant. Meanwhile, she’ll find a different excuse to rule however it “feels” right to rule.

Why is Kagan even allowed to sit in judgment over a law she helped write?

She was appointed because she’s a she, and liberal.

The closest that anyone can come to any provision for birth control or abortifacient drugs is in the vague phrase, “as the Secretary shall direct”.

WAY too much power is vested in that short clause.

Kagan, like Obama, is protected from self-embarrassment by profound ignorance and arrogance.

Kagan is just a two way pipe connecting the White Hut to SCOTUS.

She has no intellectual nor legal integrity.

Oh, she promised to be fair. We can trust her because she’s a Judge, you know. Judges are the must upstanding people in the world, just ask them and they’ll tell you.

I thought so....Apples and oranges....and in every case, the patient had the right to receive or stop treatment. Not an insurance matter at all.

No, she is a constant embarrassment. How she ever got to the Supreme Court is beyond any rational and intelligent reasoning.

But . . . but she wasn’t a judge when they put her on the court. What’s changed?

Amen to that. Kagan has to be the least qualified Justice of my lifetime.

Justice Kagan, in her writings, has been an embarrassment to the concept of judicial jurisprudence. I think she’d make a decent liberal senator from California though. If she wasn’t being one on the court.

You don’t need to ask them - they’ll tell you how fair they are whether you ask or not.

I’m a bad reader, I thought it says she “embraces herself during oral arguments”.

She is on the bench because Obama knows that no one thirst more for the blood of the unborn more than lesbians. She will NEVER let anything interfere with the flow of innocent blood for her master.

I guess it’s because she’s NOT the wise Latina on the court.

When appointees are political favors or agenda driven instead of the brightest available, you end up with what we have today. Kagen, Kerry (Clinton), Caroline Kennedy...ad nausea.
To carry a torch only for an individual instead of a nation leads to the destruction of the individual, and the nation!

No one reads anymore. Reading is boring. Kagan probably learned what she knows on CNN just like 0bama.

I guess Obama noted that Nero appointed a horse to the Roman Senate, so he decided he would appoint a horse’s ass to the Supreme Court.
