Barry Hussein Soetoro is an anti-Constitutionalist President. He has so much as said so himself. So he needs an ally on the Supreme Court, someone who shares his views—views such as the Constitution is a flawed document and flawed individuals wrote the Constitution. As such, the Constitution’s relevance for a new progressive era is questionable at best and just hopelessly archaic at worst.
By education, training and association Elena Kagan holds the same philosophy about the constitution as the president does yet he has been able to mask it so well. Yet, that is why he selected her.
So in the most ironic sense the question is how to get someone who is devoted to changing the constitution (destroying the constitution is the more appropriate word) onto the court.
Following is a step-by-step plan how president Barry Hussein Soetoro plans to get Elena Kagan onto the highest court of the land while garnering support from those who claim that they support the Constitution.
First, select a nominee who shares your very ultra-progressive ideologies but has no judicial experience form which to trace it. In addition, the person selected must not have an extensive formal legal writing history.
This guarantees that your candidate’s views, like yours, are hard to discern. Opposition will have very little documented evidence of your nominee’s anti-Constitutional views.
Second, characterize all criticism of your nominee as smears. Such a mischaracterization automatically will put anyone who has legitimate criticism on the defensive and limit what could be pertinent discussion about your nominee’s anti-constitutionalism. (see article)
Third, make sure that your nominee’s radical ideas are presented in such a way that no matter how unconstitutional they are people will think that the ideas represent the progressiveness of moving forward. For instance, take the argument supporting a law, which gives the FEC the authority to ban books, which Kagan argued before the Supreme Court.
The way, which Kagan argued it was basically if there were a law to ban books the FEC, has never banned books before because people are too progressively enlightened to do such a thing. So subsequently, a law that would permit the banning of books by the FEC wouldn’t be a problem. Fortunate for Americans the Supreme Court didn't buy Kagan's argument.(hear 2:41min audio)
Of course, you could always use the direct truthful approach Ms Kagan. Which, goes something like this, Look I’m a progressive ideologue. I know it. You know it. Everybody knows it. So what are you going to do about it?
You Republicans are too feckless to Bork me. Half of you Conservatives are already ready to confirm me. In addition, Democrats don’t really know what I will do once I’m confirmed but they'll do anything to get a Soetoro win so they’re going to confirm me over their fears, that I might not be progressive enough.
Bottom line is this, Democrats have the power to confirm me so this whole process has been a far gone conclusion since day one when the president announced my nomination and nothing has changed.
Yep what we are witnessing is a progressive cakewalk onto the Supreme Court and Democrats and president Soetoro are making it appear to be as easy as pie. Some good does come out of it for Conservatives though, but not much. We can identify all of the Republicans who vote for Kagan.
We’ll need to know just who those Republicans were when Kagan starts undermining the Constitution right from the bench of the Supreme Court. We’ll want to make sure that Republicans, who lent their support, to president Soetoro nominee (and who should have known better) will receive their just rewards the next time they face the electorate.
