Why Republicans SHOULD vote to confirm Elena Kagan... Fast!

Republicans need to vote to confirm Kagan quickly, before the Far Left picks someone much more effective at pushing Leftist policies!

1: She has articulated some core conservative principles and when she argues liberal policy, she loses.

2: Obama's next choice would likely be Much Worse!

President Obama has the right to nominate and expect confirmation of his choice for Supreme Court.
He has chosen someone who:
When being confirmed for the job of U.S. solicitor general, she agreed that certain Al Qaeda suspects could be held indefinitely without trial — even if they were captured off the battlefield.
She has said there is "no question . . . that the Second Amendment guarantees Americans ‘the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.’ "

She believes there is nothing wrong with government funds going to faith-based groups, provided they use that money for non-religious purposes.
She has flatly stated there is no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

In her time as dean of Harvard Law School, she supported the controversial hiring of Jack Goldsmith, known for playing a key role in crafting the Bush administration’s interrogation policy.
As a White House adviser in 1997, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan urged then-President Bill Clinton to support a ban on late-term abortions, a political compromise that put the administration at odds with pro-abortion groups.



On the bad side:

Kagan Argued to Ban Political Pamphlets, ban military recruiters from Harvard and argued against some terrorist prosecutorial tools.




Again, she's NOT the WORST! That would be Harold Koh, an extreme liberal whom Obama chose as legal counsel for the State Department!

“Harold 'Sharia Law' Koh! – The New York Post reports Obama’s choice for the State Department’s top legal advisor, Harold Koh believes, “JUDGES should interpret the Constitution according to other nations’ legal “norms.” He also believes Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts! Koh has also stated the United States constitutes an “axis of disobedience” along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq. Those are the views of one of the US government’s top lawyers. Harold Koh was actually the Dean of Yale Law School. Mr. Koh is now in a position to negotiate treaties, affect international law, and influence U.S. foreign policy. That’s not good news. Mr. Koh is a self-described “transnationalist” who “believes in and promotes the blending of international and domestic law.” According to Mr. Koh, “U.S. courts can and should use their interpretive powers to promote the development of a global legal system.” In short, he is a proponent of ensuring that citizens of the United States are in “bedience with international law.”
