Oh my God... Kagan's a liberal

Hard to believe:

kagan.jpg
Elena Kagan has kept her cards so close to the vest that in the days after President Obama nominated her to the Supreme Court, some on the left worried she was too moderate to replace liberal Justice John Paul Stevens.

But in documents obtained by CBS News, Kagan--while working as a law clerk to the late Justice Thurgood Marshall - made her positions clear on some of the nation's most contentious social issues.

The documents, buried in Marshall's papers in the Library of Congress, show Kagan standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the liberal left, at a time when the Rehnquist Supreme Court was moving to the conservative right.

They also provide a remarkably candid picture of her opinions, including on the most controversial issue Supreme Court nominees ever confront: abortion.

Although Kagan's confirmation has thus far been an all but foregone conclusion, sources say these documents will give Republicans a few cards of their own to mount a strong fight against her.

Apparently we're supposed to believe CBS is surprised that Obama would nominate not a moderate but a liberal.  Imagine that.

We were also supposed to believe that Obama is a moderate and not a liberal.

CBS... fooling too many people most of the time.

Couple things to rattle around:

1) President Obama nominates a liberal to the Supreme Court. So what? Do you expect him to nominate a conservative for Bork II: The Borkening?

2) Should Republicans pull out all the stops to oppose Kagan? And if so, then whom would they expect to be nominated next?

Looking at recent numbers, Kagan might as well (purely in terms of popular support) be Bork -- or <told ya so> Harriet Miers </told ya so>.

Let's look on the bright side: she's an American, and we can't take that for granted nowadays.

Sorry, that's all I've got. Can't come up with any other good parts of this.

Wow, Kagan said some allegedly liberal things **over 20 years ago**. That totally means she's a Marxist who wants to complete the secret takeover of America.

Darn shame Obama didn't nominate a moderate centrist like Thomas, Roberts, Alito or Scalia.

Kagan is not the sort of liberal I can support. Her terrible record on civil liberties and her support for regulation of 1st Amendment free speech rights appalls me.

Well 914 I don't blow, so I guess I won't be taking that. Thanks for the invite tho.

I shouldn't be surprised that some of you think those four are centrists. I can post why they're not, if it would actually change any of your minds.

I judge the person and vote internally on wether or not they deserve My vote.

I care not to trifle with endorsements as I can see right through them just like I see through everything else.

Thank You jim for being so gracious....

But that's the point. They are not centrists at all. They are extreme right wing judges.

But in any case, cheers.
