    This dude should not be voted in. She's wetter behind the ears than Obama, and look what a disaster he is.

    She is lying, just like Obama did to get himself to the presidency. He lied, is corrupt and inept. A tool of the unions with an aim to destroy this country. Impeach Obama.

    Jeff Sessions is truly one of the most despicable human beings on the planet. How do the most evil amongst us get elected to govern?

    Like Obama, Kagan is likable and says all the right things. But, also like Obama, her past actions show that she thinks of left wing politics more than 'blind' (impartial) justice.

    Her education doesn't make her qualified to make final judgements. Her past decisions (as few as there are), confirm that she shouldn't be there.

    Repubs wish Kagan was an activist judge stting policy from the bench like Scalia. The Roberts' court is pro-corporation and anti-citizen.
    No question.

    sessions should give it up with Ms. Kagan's bench experience since 38 of our supreme court justices were never sitting judges.
    Then again, if you say something stupid again and again it starts to stick with those who know better and I guess sessions is one of them! 🙁
    I listened to her yesterday afternoon and she sounds very intelligent and like she will be a good SCourt judge.
    I bet she would remember the presidential oath unlike roberts who was probably gagging that he had to do it.

    Mr. Hatch, John King
    Corporations do not have the rights of individuals nor are explicitly protected by the Constitution. The First Amendment applies only to individuals. If we gave corporations with their orders of magnitude more money than an individual the same right to voice support in elections, we will ultimately mute the voice of the individual. This is what the SC has done.

    Welcome to the DOJ Elena Kagan, well done.

    First, if corporations were denied the right to speak, that would not deny any individual who is part of the corporation the right to speak. Second, , corporations do not have a right to vote because we recognize they are different from individual citizens. Third, a nonprofit American corporation could have foreign members and contributions.

    Have you heard the one about Kagan's banning of military recruiters being a tempest in a teapot? Since the nominee has zero judicial experience, the Senators have to look at whatever paper trail exists, and the ban gives some indication of how she might rule as a member of an actual court of law.

    this is a person that is not influence by big business but what our
    laws should be and that is to be fair to everybody when you are a judge
    or a lawyer you are bias one way or another when you are in
    education you teach the theory of the law the way it should be
    applied in the court room and you are not influence by any outside
    sources so real life experience as a judge or a lawyer just means you
    are less likely to follow the law the way it should be applied

    She is a liar and should not be allowed to be a judge.

    Sotomayor said that the 2nd Amendment was a right and should not be touched. She said it was a guarantee and she said that only one year ago at her hearings.

    Yesterday she voted against the 2nd amendment.
    She is a liar.

    Kagan is the same liar and will be an activist judge that does not follow nor respect the law.
