Sen. Sessions "Taken Aback" By Kagan Remarks

Sen. Jeff Sessions yesterday at the end of his questioning of Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan, saying to her that he was “taken aback” by her attempts to dodge the truth about how she prevented military recruiters from conducting their work at the Harvard Law School when she was Dean there, because she was trying to make a political statement against the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

“I’m just a little taken aback by the tone of your remarks, because it’s unconnected to reality. I know what happened at Harvard. I know you were an outspoken leader against the military policy. I know you acted without legal authority to reverse Harvard’s policy and deny those – the military equal access to campus until you were threatened by the United States Government of loss of Federal Funds. This is what happened!”

Obama should never have nominated someone to sit on the Supreme Court who treated our military in this way. If she would act against the military to advance her political and social views, don’t you think she will use her position on the Supreme Court to do the same?

Wild Thing's comment........

With every leftist appointment, with every new czar, with every additional usurpation of our sacred liberties, we march towards the inevitable conclusion to Obama's marxist folly. He will not be happy until there is blood in the streets.

Why is Senator Sessons taken 'aback'. It's like they are finding this our for the first time. Kagan worked for a Law firm in Washington D.C., then in Chicago, affiliated with the DSA,.( Democratic Socialists of America), When obama was making his debut they obviously saw the makings of a good Socialist and they told Kagan to Mentor Obama.

If I can find this out then the Congress sure as hell can. And McCain knew all about Obama's connections all along too. With this information he never used it during the campaign. When McCain, said, Obama's just like you and me, family, Church etc. the whold long boring 9 yards worth of tripe that the republicans didn't use because some nitwit thought this might be unfair.

I don't understand why the Republicans are playing such games with this. We are losing our country to these Communists and congress is going along and singing a song as if nothing is wrong.

Sotomayor will have a celebratory 69 with Kagan after the latter is confirmed.

A litmus test for me is that the GOP senators vote her *down*. Sure the Bolshevik Bulldyke will be confirmed by the Demunist majority anyway, but I am sick and tired of Ruth Baader Ginsburg hearings where all the GOP senators make nice, while the Commiecrats hold Bork show trials or Thomas electronic lynchings.
