Here we go again
First there was Barack ‘insane’ Obama, with less than a term at the Federal level, he coerced the American public to elevate him to the highest office in the land.
And his first 18 months have proven to America…. He wasn’t ready for the job.
Now we have Elena Kagan who has been PLACED to the highest court in the land.
Here is Elena Kagan resume’
*- Doesn’t qualify her for sitting on a judicial bench,
*Kagan attended Princeton University, where she earned an A.B. in history and her main subject was the studies in the socialist movement in New York City in the early 20th century and wrote a senior thesis under historian Sean Wilentz titled "To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933".
* As an undergraduate, Kagan also served as editorial chair of the Daily Princetonian
* Worcester College, Oxford University. She earned a master of philosophy at Oxford in 1983
*She received a Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, at Harvard Law School in 1986, where she was supervisory editor of the Harvard Law Review
*Law clerk for Judge Abner Mikva of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 1987 and for Justice Thurgood Marshall of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1988
*She later entered private practice as an associate at the Washington, D.C., law firm of Williams & Connolly.
*Kagan joined the faculty of the University of Chicago Law School as an assistant professor in 1991 and became a tenured professor of law in 1995
*Kagan served as President Bill Clinton's Associate White House Counsel and Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy. In a 1996 White House document, Kagan grouped the National Rifle Association together with the Ku Klux Klan as "bad guy" organizations.
*In 1996 she wrote an article in the University of Chicago Law Review entitled, “Private Speech, Public Purpose: The Role of Governmental Motive in First Amendment Doctrine.” Kagan argued that government has the right, even considering the First Amendment, to restrict free speech, when the government believes the speech is "harmful", as long as the restriction is done with good intentions.
*Kagan then took a position as a visiting professor at Harvard Law School.
*In 2001, she was named a full professor and in 2003 was the first woman to be named Dean of Harvard Law School
* United States Solicitor General-On January 5, 2009, President-elect Barack Obama announced he would nominate Kagan to be Solicitor General Before this appointment she had limited courtroom experience. She had never argued a case at trial, and had not argued before the Supreme Court of the United States.
Did I mention one more thing. She has NEVER ruled from the bench and handed down any law opinion from the bench.
This Ladies and Gentleman is her experience in an actual court room, NONE!
And Yet, she will sit on the highest Court in the land!!!
This Ladies and Gentlemen will be the fourth woman to serve on the high court after she is sworn in, won the job on a Senate vote of 63-37 (Republicans who voted for her- Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C, Richard Lugar of Indiana, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, and Judd Gregg of New Hampshire.)
The first with no court room experience whatsoever.
One more thing… She has never passed the bar.
