Skip to comments.Obama Says Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan Understands "Behind the Law there are Stories" - Video
Posted on 05/10/2010 8:43:22 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot
Here is video from today's announcement by President Obama that Elena Kagan is his nominee to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. In this clip, Obama said he is choosing Kagan because she understands "behind the law there are stories."
Obama went on to say, "That understanding of law - not as an intellectual exercise, or words on a page, but as it affects the lives or ordinary people . . . "
But the U.S. Constitution consists of "words on a page," and Obama has selected someone that he knows will not be guided by the "words on a page," but by her own agenda to remake the law and the nation in a radically leftist image.
He went on to cite as an example that the case she made priority as U.S. Solicitor General was the "Citizens United" case that she lost before the Supreme Court. The Court ruled 5-4 that Corporations had free speech rights, a decision Obama condemned during his State of the Union Address this year by attacking the Supreme Court as they sat before him in the House of Representatives Chamber.
Obama's pick is another "finger in the eye" to conservatives on the court, nominating the very person to join the high court who argued the case that Obama has attacked the court for.

Yes, but are they TRUE stories?
He made a similar statement about the “wise latina”, didn’t he?
I will contribute to the opponent of ANY REPUBLICAN who votes for this Communist. Yes, that is a threat.
Behind the law there is the CONSTITUTION. It has no stories, only truths.
Who would have ever guessed that in just over 200 years, the intellectual caliber of those in government would have fallen so far.
Your tagline quote is outstanding!
Will not support any RINO that votes her in...
“behind the law there are stories.”
Well, I have a story. One time we were in New Orleans playing Tulane in baseball, and... O, I’m sorry. That doesn’t have anything to do with the Constitution. And, neither do her stories.
PING! GOD help us all!
I understand this, too.
But does that qualify me to sit on the SCOTUS?
Of course not.
However, I can still do 70 pushups. Can Elena? I don’t think so.
the list, ping
Yes, the story is called the Declaration of Independence: any problems with that Mr. Zerobama?
Ah, but the catch is we do not know what’s your story Mr Zerobama. The catch is you want your communist plantation, because your are a one man freak of a kind community, Mr. Zero. You love the humanism which keeps us chained to crime. You love the communism which keeps us ganged chain to a retarded conmspiratorial collective of evil mindsets. Stories stories indeed, what a spooky ambiguous coded hopey changey language Mr. Zero. But you do not want to know and let alone tell true stories, you love the “privacy”, the secrecy, and that is what the perverts with you share - the shames, while wagging fingers at us like hypocrites about “stories” - and you love to wallow us and yourself in ideology because you do not want to know or to claim to know the destructive end of your blindness, taking orders from those you bow to accross the world, you hate people, you hate your job, you just take orders, pipper out as an interface without thinking as a happy slave would whatever is opinionated on that Teleprompter, and your “hope and change” is a red pill of addiction and obsenity, hoping your handlers are right, when in fact they only plan to kill whoever has secrets beyond theirs and whoever is useless trash like you except for moments like these, as you live compartmentalized and digitalized, like a cog in a wheel of manipulation, hoping, yes, hoping, there will be continued use for you.
No, decidedly, you hate stories, you only want to be a number in a cog, Mr. Zero, you and your followers, all secure bureaucrates, money redistributed, oiled cogs in a machinery, without story, without anything.
Zero, the man only in fiction, and not of story, the dancing and prancing Pinochio of his mother’s conspiracy and her cohorts, surrounded by gangsters and illusion makers, all of which are your daily staple of “stories”.
And behind the law there is a CONSTITUTION, which sadly, from Obama’s point of view, imposes limits on what government can do to or “for” we citizens and our private institutions.
In any case,it appears that the first requirement of a Supreme Court nominee is femaleness.
I’m beginning to see that it isn’t enough to impeach this communist, we’ll have to remove all of his judicial appointments too.
I agree with others. Any Repub who votes for this joke of a judge does not deserve to be in office.
Can the seated judges refuse to accept a new appointment?
Jesus H. Christ.
Yep, the Wise Latina is a whore, basicaly, an evil romance manipulating whore who wants you dead while she sings to you that she is all for your heroism on the bed. The Wise Latina is a code word of collective conspiracy of evil and retardedness.
Now we have new code words of hopey changey coming from Zero. What does he mean by stories? He simply mans victimhood and humanism, ie. a sort of “suicide girl” mantra order of business, because, nowadays, in America, you can make prostitution ok and pc if you are a “victim” of “humane” feelings and needs of secrecy and empowerment etc...
The socialist cog story lines of Obama and “diversity”:
It’s about victimhood, hate crimes and jews... it’s about the stories of others distorted to justify his story. It’s about stonewalling his birth certificate until his illegitimacy is legalized somehow in the books, getting away with it, it is about “coming out of the closet” once society not only accept gays, but can be bullied by empowered gays, sure that they can rape and mutilate whoever they want without impunity and shame.
He is a social digitizer, just as Hitler was a pure social liberal art digitizer who in fact had no respect for technical or national achievement, but his own role, but his own made up story, his own opinionating of false witness stories and audiences against his enemies to carry.
Isn’t it Alinsky who promoted a way of political warfare through the over burdening and testing of the claims of his political opponent, while staying “mum and neutral” about his own agenda, feigning being for “hope and change” instead? This is crucifiction, inquisition and holocaust all over again, believe it or not. It is the same practices coming home to roost. The same “drama” pass pass wink language, the same “Drama” of “I do not care what is going to happen next, I just hope my confused cog role is going to keep me alive”.
With no conseratives talking heads addressing the birther issue in a meaningful way we are now a nation of men, not laws.
Stephen King is an good story-teller.
That doesn’t mean I want him on the U.S. supreme court.
Of course, if it came down to a choice between him and Mr. Obama’s latest pick, I’d say “bring on the liberal horror-writer”. At least with HIM writing them, the court’s decisions might make me lose sleep at night for reasons OTHER than their misinterpretations of our Consitution.
