Just Say No
It is an interesting coincidence that the nominee for the soon to be vacated Supreme Court Justice position has a rather small record. Was it Tom Daschle who told then Senator Obama to run for President before he had a record of voting tendencies? So, how does President Obama approach his selection of a Supreme Court Justice nominee? He gives us someone with little judicial experience, a background in the extremely liberal soil of academia, and in the small sample we have of her choices are a bit (ok, maybe a gigabyte) left of Middle America. Elena Kagan, current solicitor general is an ideal candidate for Supreme Court Justice in the eyes of President Obama.
President Obama had said that it was very important that his choice for Supreme Court Justice would take into account women’s rights, yet rejected an idea of a litmus test, and believes that women should have the right to make often difficult decisions about their own bodies and issues of reproduction, however…no litmus test?
I am not surprised. Pissed off, but unfortunately not surprised. America drank the cool called change and now we are paying for it and will pay for it for years to come.
