Who should be a Supreme Court Judge?
Republicans want judges who will strictly interpret the U.S. Constitution. Obama’s recent statement that he would like a nominee “empathetic” to the concerns of everyday Americans worried some Republicans.
That being said, Obama is going to consider mostly extreme-left pro-abortion Democrats:
Barack HUSSEIN Obama is considering California Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno as well as Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and U.S. Appeals Court judges Sonia Sotomayor and Diane Pamela Wood.
Who are these fine people??
Carlos Moreno: Served as President of the Mexican American Bar Association, and on the Board of Visitors of Stanford Law School and the Board of Governors of the Association of Yale Alumni….. Of Note: Elisa B. v. Superior Court (2005) 37 Cal.4th 108, in which the court concluded that California law recognized parental relationships involving two women; “We perceive no reason why both parents of a child cannot be women.”
Elena Kagan: Kagan was formerly dean of Harvard Law School and Charles Hamilton Houston Professor of Law at Harvard University. She was previously a professor of law at the University of Chicago Law School. She served as Associate White House Counsel under President Bill Clinton….She has never argued a case at trial, and has not argued before the Supreme Court of the United States….Kagan’s scholarly work focuses on administrative law.
Jennifer Granholm: A memo was released to reporters from Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick addressed to Granholm. It asked that, in exchange for his support and Detroit votes, Granholm must provide jobs and appointments for Detroit natives. The memo proposed numerous specific ways that Granholm could help if elected, including ensuring that 20 percent of new political appointees were African-American. Granholm’s opponent, Republican Lieutenant Governor Dick Posthumus, publicly denounced the “corrupt pact” between Kilpatrick and Granholm. She is also a EMILY’s Lister, “She is every woman who’s ever had to defend her right to be pro-choice. She’s every woman who’s ever had to explain her choice not to have a child.”
Janet Napolitano: Napolitano was the subject of controversy after a Department of Homeland Security threat assessment report initiated during the administration of George W. Bush, entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” This United States Secretary of Homeland Security openly accused veterans and activists to be home-grown right-wing terrorists.
Sonia Sotomayor: A judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, in Manhattan. Sotomayor is the first Puerto Rican woman to serve as a U.S. Circuit Court judge. During her first year on the appeals bench, she received high ratings from liberal public-interest groups…..She would be a liberal, pro-choice justice who would maintain the judicial majority that opposes the overturning of Roe v. Wade. At least she ended the baseball strike of ’95.
Diane Pamela Wood: A federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and a Senior Lecturer at the University of Chicago School of Law….Of Note: National Organization for Women v. Scheidler, 267 F.3d 687 (7th Cir. 2001): Wood, writing for the panel, held that the district court did not err in concluding that the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act authorized private plaintiffs to seek injunctive relief. In addition, the court held that the injunction issued by the district prohibiting violent conduct by anti-abortion protesters struck the proper balance and avoided any risk of curtailing activities protected by the First Amendment. The Supreme Court reversed. 537 U.S. 393 (2003).
If this isn’t a motely crew of who-know’s-what.
Considering that everyone else Obama has nominated for anything either can’t pay taxes, pay their illegal help or stay out of federal court for something. And of course they are all Democrats and pro-abortionists.
And we’re the ones targeted for ‘Hate Crime” laws? What happened to due process (5th amendment)?
I AM AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. The Constitution are words to live by, by WE THE PEOPLE. The opinions of others mean NOTHING. Pretty soon you’ll be able to marry your cat.
