NELSON SAYS NO: Sen Nelson First Democrat To Oppose Radical Kagan For Supreme Court



Democratic Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska said he will vote against confirming Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court, becoming the first in his party to announce opposition.

Also today, Senator Judd Gregg of New Hampshire said he will vote for President Barack Obama’s nominee, the fifth Republican to do so.

Nelson said he had heard “concerns” from people in Nebraska about Kagan.

“Her lack of a judicial record makes it difficult for me to discount the concerns raised by Nebraskans, or to reach a level of comfort that these concerns are unfounded,” Nelson said. “Therefore, I will not vote to confirm Ms. Kagan’s nomination.”

Still, Nelson said he would oppose any filibuster of Kagan’s nomination and favor allowing an “up or down vote.” It takes 60 votes to force a final vote. With 59 votes controlled by Democrats and five Republicans in support, Kagan’s nomination would have enough to end a Republican filibuster.

In announcing his support for Kagan, Gregg said she “has pledged that she will exercise judicial restraint and decide each case that comes before her based on the law, with objectivity and without regard to her personal views.” READ MORE...

  2. If Kagan gets in it is going to be tough for a lot of americans who believe in the 2nd amendment & the constitution as a whole. Notice how Obama hires the most fascist anti american scum into his administration. The Obama Administration are enemies of the constitution. THEY SIMPLY HATE IT. Look at the bills they pass. I have never heard of the federal government forcing anyone to buy a product or service & if that individual refuses to buy their service they are fined or jailed. Which in this case is healthcare. Whenever I ask an Obamanoid where in the constitution does is state that. They either get mad or turn dumb. Obama & his gang of misfits love it b/c they know a lot of americans who support them are IDIOTS. What the administration is afraid of is people like us who knows him for what he is. A GLOBALIST FASCIST WHO HAS NO REGARD FOR THE CONSTITUTION & OUR SOVEREIGNTY.
