Kagan’s Never had a Real Courtroom Trial!?

While I also approve of the notion that the High Court could use a “real attorney” and that too many experienced Federal Judges end up on the Supreme Court while many great attorneys in this country remain unconsidered–I assumed that Obama would select a real attorney–a real experinced trial attorney!!!

Why would anyone possibly think Kagan is qualified, if she has never fought in the trenches?  She’s apparently never fought a case for the little guy!  At least that is my understanding from this quote from Focus on the Family:

“Ms. Kagan is an accomplished scholar, but has never served as a judge and has spent very little time inside a court room. Prior to becoming solicitor general in 2009, she stated that she had never tried a case all the way to a decision or verdict.” 

She’s just another elitest, Ivy League, Washington D.C. insider who doesn’t understand what regular blue collar, hard working America is.  Kagan doesn’t get it.  

She doesn’t appreciate traditional family values or think that preserving the traditional definition of marriage is important.  And even worse yet, she’s been so busy promoting her far-left liberal ideological interests at Harvard Law and undermining sound Constitutional law as Solictor General that she apparently never found the time to take a case to trial in her entire legal career!

This appears to be a shady, disgraceful nomination of someone who does not deserve the title of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.  Never mind ideology–the Senate ought to CAN her for lack of necessary experience. Period.  She ought to have the decency to withdraw her name much like Harriet Miers had the good sense to do.

Biden Predicts Crisis

I suppose Biden himself could also be a bit of crisis for Sen. Obama’s campaign.  Why so many people are willing to overlook the fact that Obama is the least prepared and most inexperienced presidential candidate in modern times is a quandary.  And why people think he can fix the economy when he has never actually even run a business or even a city government is remarkable. 

This is not some fairy tale story with a happy ending if Sen. Obama is elected.  No.  This is as serious as it gets.  The person elected will be responsible not only for our economy but also for our security and position in the world.  Russia, North Korea, China, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine and Venezuela with all their problems do not disappear with an inspiring speech or campaign promise.  I think Biden understands that.  I think voters understand that too, but we ignore it to our peril. 

“Live free or die!” is one of our nation’s storied mottoes, yet America is on the precipice of trading freedom with its uncertainties and endless opportunities for the mediocre “safety” of massive government programs funded with your money to fix all of our problems.  Obama is attempting to buy votes with the promise of tax rebate checks for millions of people who don’t even pay any Federal income taxes.  I grant that McCain is not the best example of conservative economic prowess, but Obama is much worse and intentionally so.  We forget that government created these problems in the first place.  Over-taxing success and feeding more money to government solves nothing and kills jobs. 

In addition, we are about to tell the world whether they can “test” our resolve or not.  Obama has consistently demonstrated his willingness to back down from a necessary fight.  And he’s been dead wrong.  If Obama had been President these past four years, Iraq would be lost.  Gone would be the chance at a stable democracy and the new opportunity for women’s rights in the Middle East.  In fact, if Obama had been President eight years ago, Saddam Hussein would still be in power today.  And so what Obama represents to me is quite simple—less freedom here and abroad and more fear.  Don’t take my word for it, just ask Obama’s VP.            

 

Obama Pushed Iraq to Delay Troop Withdrawals

 

[An] attempt to subvert the executive branch would be contrary to established U.S. foreign policy. If Zebari’s statements are discovered to be true, Obama would be guilty of the most unadulterated political profiteering and moral corruption in modern history. To seek electoral gain on the deception of a nation at war and the blood of American soldiers is nothing less than treasonous villainy….

Alaska: No Small Task

Before you dismiss the fact that Sarah Palin is Commander of the Alaska National Guard, consider this:

Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile interceptor defense system. The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska National Guard is the unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic missile attacks. It’s on permanent active duty, unlike other Guard units.

As governor of Alaska , Palin is briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counter-terrorism. Her exposure to classified material may rival even Biden’s and certainly by far exceeds Obama’s.

She’s also the commander in chief of the Alaska State Defense Force (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into Homeland Security’s counter-terrorism plans.

Palin is privy to military and intelligence secrets that are vital to the entire country’s defense. Given Alaska ‘s proximity to Russia, she may have security clearances we don’t even know about. According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain in February, but nobody ever found out. This is a woman used to keeping secrets.

She can be entrusted with our national security, because she already is. . . . her experience in keeping the homeland safe fits perfectly with her image as the competent American woman.

Compare her Experience and Resume with the Messiah Obama’s???

Governor Palin, Commander in Chief Already, wins hands down.

Hat Tip: GreyHawk emphasis mine

Good to know.  The more I learn about Palin, the more I like her.  Did you know that if you divide Alaska in half, Texas would then be the third largest state?  Think about it.  –Jay
