“In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism’s glories than of socialism’s greatness.”
— Elena Kagan, Obama nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court
“This is a great opportunity to find out what’s in this woman’s mind.”
— Rush Limbaugh
The teachable moment on socialism is here.

The issue — the issue — of this confirmation hearing for a Supreme Court Justice should be not Ms. Kagan, but socialism. Socialism, the philosophy she professed such admiration for in her 1981 Princeton thesis titled “To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933.”
Obama Flashback: A Supreme Court Nominee With No Judicial Experience Requires Extreme Scrutiny
Great vid over at breitbart tv
Obama on Harriet Miers, former candidate for the supreme court: “She is going to have to be forthcoming.
“Harriet Miers has had a distinguished career as a lawyer, but since her experience does not include serving as a judge, we have yet to know her views on many of the critical constitutional issues facing our country today. In the coming weeks, we’ll need as much information and forthright testimony from Ms. Miers as possible so that the U.S. Senate can make an educated and informed decision on her nomination to the Supreme Court”. So says the wise one. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/plum-line/2010/05/flashback_obama_said_harriet_m.html
