  1. 1

    She has never been a judge - so how are we supposed to know how she feels about the critical and key issues if she has never voted on them before??



  2. 2

    none.



  3. 3

    i hate nobama



  4. 4

    That's the best Obama can come up with?? Sad . . . she's unqualified.



  5. 5

    she's never served on a bench, a little scary. But why would that little thing called expeirence stop obama, it never has before.



  6. 6

    Elena Kagan looks like Fred Flintstone. Yabba, dabba, do! She's straight out of Bedrock.



  7. 7

    It looks like Brendan Fraser

    William Rehnquist just recently retired as cheif justice, he had no experience as a judge before being appointed to the court.

    John Marshall is widely revered as "the great Chief Justice," but before joining the Supreme Court he had never served a day as a judge.

    Earl Warren had worked for 18 years as a prosecutor and was three times elected governor of California. But he had no prior judicial experience. Nor did , Felix Frankfurter, and Louis Brandeis.

    SHE HAS NO EXPERIENCE AS A JUDGE! AMERICA, DO YOU REALLY WANT SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER BEEN A JUDGE IN HER LIFE PLAYING THE BIGGEST ROLE OF LAW IN THE COUNTRY???



  10. 10

    ANOTHER GREAT DECISION MADE BY A MAN WHO WAS ONLY ELECTED INTO OFFICE BECAUSE HE IS HALF BLACK!
    THIS WOMAN HAS NEVER WORKED AS A JUDGE IN HER WHOLE LIFE!!!



  11. 11

    CONGRATULATIONS LIBERALS, THIS IS WHAT YOUR CUMULATIVE SUPPORT FOR "HOPE" HAS DONE FOR THE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY!! YOUR PRESIDENT WHO'S BACKGROUND AS "COMMUNITY LEADER", HAS NOW NOMINATED ANOTHER COMMUNITY LEADER (AKA SCHOOL DEAN) FOR THIS DELICATE POSITION…………WTF?!?!?!



  12. 12

    It realy bothers you that obama is doing so much better of a job at running the country the bush did dosent it.



  13. 13

    2012 is soon people, relax. This clown has no chance.



  14. 14

    It realy bothers you that obama is doing so much better of a job at running the country then bush did dosent it.



  15. 15

    O-m-g retards- like SPINDOC reminds you, check your history facts on the supreme court before you start idiotically capslocking things like- "SHE HAS NO EXPERIENCE AS A JUDGE! AMERICA, DO YOU REALLY WANT SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER BEEN A JUDGE IN HER LIFE PLAYING THE BIGGEST ROLE OF LAW IN THE COUNTRY???" dumb dumb dumb dumb duuuuuumb… I need a tylenol. Hey, 'bring it' Jesse Jackson was black too and didn't come close to being elected… hillbilly, racist jackass.



  16. 16

    A very bright lady, I have seen her speak on more than one occasion. She is amazing, but no experience as a judge. I'm sorry - I don't think she has the qualifications She will not get nominated. Remember Harriet Myers anyone? Plus she is pretty conservative - an odd choice.



  17. 17

    Re: Spindoc – Excellent point



  18. 18

    Re: kylielover02 – LOL WHAT? DOING A BETTER JOB RUNNING IT? RUNNING IT INTO THE GROUND YOU MEAN? WAKE UP



  19. 19

    Re: kylielover02 – DEFINE "BETTER"?? SUB-PAR EXPERIENCE?? EMPTY WORK EXPERIENCE??



  20. 20

    What a dumb-ass.



  21. 21

    This is not Harriet Miers, this is Elena Kagan. She is well-qualified, and she already won republican votes for another administration post.
    Congratulations on her nomination. Let the senate hearings begin, and I look forward to her confirmation. At age 50, she will be the youngest SCOTUS justice, and the third woman sitting this term.



  22. 22

    Forget the fact that she has never been a judge. She was a law professor at prestigious universities and the Dean of Harvard Law School– yet she's hardly published anything. My question is, considering how thin her publications list is, how did she ever get to be a professor at those prestigious universities. It's baffling. You HAVE to write. Then again, out President was a Professor at U of Chicago and he never wrote a single law review article. Not one. Not sure how they manage it– they just seem to be tapped while everyone else has to work hard.



  23. 23

    Re: Beauceron – She is a really really good speaker. And you are correct she hasn't published a ton of influential stuff. I don't think she gets nominated. In spite of what people say - having some experience on the bench is important and jsut because you are a legal intellectual doesn't mean you deserve to be a SC Justice.



  24. 24

    Another useless Harvard Commie Lib. Shocker!



  25. 25

    i love the fact that he is picking novices to the court. time for some FRESH ideas!!



  26. 26

    She has ties to Goldman Sachs.. is he serious??



  27. 27

    i know not all republican's are stupid, but all you conservatives that visit this site really are. How about you read up on our country's history, SOME oF THE BEST JUDGES HAD NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT. How retarded are you? this is why retards like you can't run a country, you are uneducated inbreds. And all the problems you bitch about Obama causing…you can probably trace them all back to bush's presidency. Its called FACTS, not what Fox News is shitting out of their mouths.



  28. 28

    Re: kenzie6t4 – you really shouldn't use that word. you aren't being very sensitive to people who have mental disabilities. thats not very liberal of you.

    Re: SnowBoarder4LIFE – for your sake i hope it comes really soon



  30. 30

    although William Renquist, the last Lead Justice before Roberts also never served as a judge and no one can dispute he wasn't an excellent justice…i have to wonder about having someone who's never been a judge to the highest court in the land.

    yes, this woman is already the solicitor general and head of Yale law (i think) and a brilliant legal mind…but no bench experience at all? i don't like it. i think only people who have served at the federal level at judges should be considered for the Supreme Court….gotta have experience to do this job, just like most jobs out there.

    Re: Sir-Bangs-Alot – Bush ran the country to the ground not obama. obama inherited bushes dumbass mistakes you wake up.



  32. 32

    Re: kriskriskris – You forget bushes dumb mistakes is the reason everone is out of job obama is doing is cleaning up his shit dont try to make it his fault.



  33. 33

    Terrible choice but of course he was going to pick the worst one….



  34. 34

    Re: kylielover02 – Yea…BUSH INHERITED CLINTON'S DUMBASS IDEA TO CUT BACK ON NATIONAL DEFENSE, HENCE THE 911 WORLD OF TODAY! ITS NOT ABOUT WHAT WAS HANDED TO YOU, ITS ABOUT WHAT YOU DO ABOUT IT. SO FAR…THE LIBERALS HAVE DONE NOTHING BUT SPEND SPEND SPEND. STILL NO JOBS, STILL NO EMPLOYMENT, STILL GOT FORECLOSURES, 40MILLION NOW ON FOOD STAMPS…BUT HEY, WE GOT NATIONAL HEALTH CARE!! GREAT LOAD OFF PEOPLE'S MINDS RIGHT NOW!!

    MichLuv:

    The judicial branch is not where "fresh ideas" are conceived.

    The judicial branch is STRICTLY for INTERPRETING the law properly.

    Activist judges are the ANTITHESIS of the judicial branch, and will be the downfall of the US.

    This is the kind of stuff that scares me. People throwing their opinion out about "Fresh Ideas" from the supreme court and probably can't name the three branches of government.

    Sorry to be harsh but you should wise up.



  36. 36

    This is just Obama's way of getting female votes

  37. Jen83 says – reply to this


    37

    Such closed minds, why not actually wait and see what sort of a job she does before you criticise her.
    Who are you to know what is needed? what are your qualifications? Their are reasons why they are in the jobs they are in… I don't know them… I'm not American… but it saddens me that people are so closed minded about such things most of the world are so un-educated about.
    Sure, you can be un-happy about set information you are being given, but no need to run your mouth and bag someone who you have no 'clear' reason to doubt her ability.

    Re: Sir-Bangs-Alot – before bush jr. Clinton had us in a multi trillion dollar surplus and everone that wanted to work had a job. do some real reserch and pull your heads out of your asses. thanks to clinton the country was in far better shape after daddy bushes and reagans horrible mistakes. do you call yourselfs conservatives cause your conserving the energy thats supose to go to your brians or do you enjoy being dumb? by the way it must kill you to know that a black is in office and is doing what black people have been doing for this country for 600 yrs. now cleaning up white mens mess. face it obama is going to clean up the mess you conservatives have made. hes only been in office for 2yrs. and hes already making history and doing more good than bush jr. and reagan did in there 8.



  39. 39

    she fits in perfect to his regime…

    Re: Jen83 – Wait and see? It's a lifetime appointment assclown.



  41. 41

    It's about time a Lesbian was picked for the Supreme Court.



  42. 42

    sir bangs alot is one angry guy. Kagan looks like a tranny for sure.



  43. 43

    all the bush lovers do remember the 1st person bush tried to make a court justice right? I dont think she even had a law degree, so maybe sir bangs alot should think about that before throwing stones.



  44. 44

    Everyone wants to praise Bill "Slick Willie " but there was not a trillion dollar surplus. Instead of taking down Osama Bin Laden he was in the WH getting BJ'S.And let us not forget he cut back the defense budget which is why we had 9/11. And in defense of Bush, after cleaning up after BJ Clinton, he kept us safe. Then the Dumbocrats took over the House and and Barney Frank and Fannie and Freddie and started the huge financial mess we are in now. Be Clear as Obama is quickly ruining the country.



  45. 45

    Re: jezzie14 – bush let 9/11 happen because he wanted to go down in history as a war president he said that himself. he didnt keep us safe. because of him other country started to hate us. and if any of you asshole say somthing dumb like they hate us for our freedom ill have prof there ignorant. instead of attacking afganastan the country that attacked us he attacked iraq. i know you rasist republican dont know the diffrents but thats a completly diffrent country than afgan. he started a war with a country that had nothing to do with are attack causing us to lose money. but i suppose its like talking to a brick wall to you idiots wake up. the repulicans are distorying the country the dems are just fixing it. by the way i rather have someone in office that is fucking somone other than his wife than fucking the country. so bill got a blow job by some woman and not his wife atleast it was a woman and not a male escort or cursing for sex in some bathroom like the other party LOl. tape tape tape.



  46. 46

    The only people that call another person a racist is actually the racist. That is what a liberal does, they call people names and scream and kick. It might also help them ,if they could actually spell correctly too!!!!



  47. 47

    How come all the women in Washington are sooooooooooooooo UGLY?!!!



  48. 48

    I pray that all these messes that Obama is making are easy to clean up in 2012.

    Information about Gonorrhea Lectim

    The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent
    strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It's
    pronounced "Gonna re-elect 'em," and it is a terrible obamanation.

    The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving
    putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted it in
    2008…but now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-2
    years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.

    It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just
    coming on the market called Votemout. You take the first dose in 2010 and
    the second dose in 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior again;
    otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we
    know it.

    Several states are already on top of this, like Virginia and New Jersey ,
    and apparently now Massachusetts, with many more seeing the writing on the
    wall.

    Re: kylielover02 – Bill also watched the terrorists try to blow up the WTC from the bottom back in '93, but did nothing about it when he could have caught the terrorists, thus opening the doors wide for it to happen again. And it did, 8 years later.
