    Hopefully, she's more honest than Roberts...that right wing judicial activist!

    Righties, you lost the ability to use that term after the Roberts court overturned over 100 years of settled law and changed the definition of a person to include multinational corporations.

    Welcome the new Justice to be Elena Kagan, she's a shoe in.

  3. Stop left wing judicial activism

    She's smart, but will she dish out 'blind justice'? I hope so. Over the last 100 years liberals have discovered how to use the courts to pass much of their agenda.

    Some posters have claimed 'right wing activism'. Really? When liberals start taking away gun rights in Chicago and the Supreme Court rules in favor of the 2nd amendment, that isn't activism. That's supporting the Constitution.

    Oh, and corporations have as much a right to be involved in the political process as the labor unions. Especially with the Obama administration passing anti-business legislation–contrary to the voice of the people.

    I love how you have to promise impartiality now, when that's pretty much expected of the job.

    The SCOTUS hearings are the ultimate experience in playing to the base. This has NOTHING....NOTHING to do about fairness. You want to know what is wrong in this country...don't blame the Repubs or the Dems... It is both! Just take a few minutes and watch this travesty.

  7. I wish republicans and their hateful baggers could also be impartial.

    now that is a good wish, not gonna happen, but America would be much healthier with out their fanaticism

    Impartial to the right-wingers means that you think only of yourself and not your neighbor or your country. "My right to do this", "My right to do that": what happened to "My responsibility".

    Another leftist, trying to tell Americans that she isn't a leftist.

    Hope and change.

    The American people understand, from Obama's presidency what a leftist is, and they are rejecting Kagan as they will reject the Democrats and Obama in the next two election cycles.

    Go try your message somewhere else...like Siberia.

    I don't believe one word of this. Her past statements have shown her to be from the far left and that is why Obama wants her. Roberts is nothing right wing compared to what this woman will be left wing. She should not be confirmed. Period.

    What does she mean, she promise impartiality. She has to be impartial.

    She is all about making up the rules as she goes.

    She does not believe in the constitution nor following it.

    He and Sonta will re write rules as they rule with their feelings and emotions.

    She should not be confirmed.
    By her own hand she has written that she does not believe in strict adherence to the constitution.

  13. Victim of GOP Taliban

    She seems much more rational and intelligent than most of the stooges sitting on the bench that decided the 2000 Presidential election and that horrible ruling on unlimited political spending by corporations.

    She should be asked about todays decision on the 2nd Amendment! YES!!!!

  15. they call me "tater salad"

    It's painfully obvious we have a Supreme Court that is heavily influenced by the right wing......This should even it up a little........Bout time if you ask me!!! After that outrageous conservative based ruling on federal election contributions by corporations (like they don't have enough power and influence already) this Government should thank their imaginary friend in the sky for every day the people of this country don't rise up grab their pitchforks and torches and have one big "storm the castle" moment! There's certainly no shortage of pissed off people out there right now!!.........Probably shouldn't push it!!!!!!

  16. Send Her Home

    Yea, right .She will be biased a with far left liberal view of everything just like ol' soto the wise one, and we saw where she stands by her vote today on the gun control issue.She would take away freedoms and increase government control.

  17. Biased

    I thought a judge was supposed to be impartial anyway....why then is a promise to be so necessary?

    I am a republican and I have never been more disappointed in my party than I have been in the last 8 years of Bush and the last 1 and half since Obama took over and everything the GOP has done is nothing......they are hell bent on wanting this President to fail and they will do anything in their power to make it happen instead of trying to work with this administration and getting something done for our country.......it is evident that the Republicans in Washington are not willing to work with this administration to get things done, so I have no other alternative but to change my party......I can not vote for my GOP canidates because they have not the couage to stand up against the Tea Party (which is the party of Hate, they can't stand up against Palin or Limbaugh or beck) sad to think this was once the Grand Old Party

    Yeah right and Obama is going to cut the 13 trillion dollar deficit in half by 2013! Who does this liberal schill think she is fooling. She is only outdone in her inabilities to function in the real world outside of some government funded job by our Commander in Chief. Flush the mode!

    Careful Kagan, siding with the Republicans is like taking the road to the Dark side!

    Yeah, don't hold your breath. Don't forget she's been trained by the Liar-in-Chief.

    Stay tuned!

    GO KAGAN GO!!! I am so proud that Barry has had the opportunity to appoint two amazing women to the high court. I hope he gets another opportunity appoint before he is done in 2017.
