The 'Elusive' Truth About Kagan

Subject: txt hots lgl -
It's not cute when reporters play dumb.

Last year, when Barack Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court, CBS anchor Katie Couric said labeling her “won't be easy.” CBS reporter Wyatt Andrews found “no clear ideology” in her public record. This week, the Washington Post embarrassed themselves with a front-page story claiming “Obama has not chosen outspoken liberals in either of his first two opportunities to influence the makeup of the court.”

That ridiculous sentence collides with a June 8 report by liberal Los Angeles Times legal reporter David Savage.

“The early returns are in, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor is proving herself to be a reliable liberal vote on the Supreme Court. Cases this year on campaign speech, religion, juvenile crime, federal power and Miranda warnings resulted in an ideological split among the justices, and on every occasion, Sotomayor joined the liberal bloc.”

[I.e., duped and/or betrayed by the Republicans again, who evidently feel a life-time-appointment was worth fighting to prevent.]


Will Kagan Do A Sotomayor?

Supreme Court Justice nominee Sonia Sotomayor came off as a 2nd Amendment defender when she was being questioned during her confirmation hearings. She voted the other way when a gun rights case came to The Court.

Can we now trust Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan?
