Barack is Kagan’s “Hero”

No wonder her good friend, Barack, has nominated Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court.  Here she is praising his “brilliance” in 2005.

During a 2005 Harvard Law School award Luncheon now-Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan lavished praised for then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) and explained the “privilege” of attending the 2004 Democratic National Convention. “I have something of a political background, myself,” she began. “When the Democratic National Convention came to town, I asked some friends of mine for some tickets and I went each night to the convention,” she said.

Kagan said no one paid attention to the speakers, until the night Obama spoke. “He opened his mouth, said a few words and the place was mesmerized. You could of heard a pin drop. In part that is because of all the rock star qualities he has: the eloquence, the magnetism, the great looks, the brilliance,” she praised him. “When he opens up his mouth, you know you’re getting the real deal,” she continued. Kagan called Obama a “hero.” She concluded that Obama is “truly one of the great public servants of our time” and gives many “hope” in the future of the country. (Location: Cambridge, Massachusetts, Sept. 17, 2005)

Now that we have experienced about a year and a half of his “magnetism and brilliance” we know he hasn’t a clue what he is doing, and if he does know, it’s even worse, since he is conducting the destruction of the country.  It seems Ms. Kagan has just about as much experience as he does.

We do not need an Obama rubber stamp buddy on the Supreme Court.  Please, Republicans, do your duty and oppose this nomination.

President of the U. S. insults Cambridge police

The President of the United States attacks a Cambridge cop trying to do his job, saying the Cambridge police “acted stupidly.”

This is beyond the pale. Especially since he prefaced his remarks with the fact that Harvard Professor Henry Gates is a friend and that made him prejudiced in his favor and then admitting he did not have all the facts. Yet he continued to comment on it on national tv in a prime time presidential press conference.

The leader of the free world meddling in a local matter that doesn’t even rise above a misdemeanor?  If ever a question cried out for a “no comment” reply, this was it.  One would expect better judgment from the most intelligent man in the world.

Harvard Scholar Disorderly Sgt. James Crowley, Cambridge cop.

See report and great video of a short interview of Sgt Crowley and some emails and comments from a Boston station.

Also go here for a link to the Imus interview with Michael Graham this morning on this subject.

This whole thing with the question on Gates and so forth, was it staged in order to divert attention from the horrible press conference that rambled on for an hour without answering any question??  If so, well, it worked.  Well, sort of.  CNN is waiting for the Town Hall in Ohio where he will speak yet again on what will reportedly be more scare tactics on the health care issue.
