      How much change could be realistically expected.  Frankly, passing the health bill and starting to dismantle DADT was more than I expected he would be able to do.

      Let them see what I want them to see, so they can only see from my own ploarized perspective.  Then and only then will they logically follow my logic.

      Could it be that the term "transparent government" meant only that we will see how things are done in Washington, knowing full well that we'll do nothing about it?

    He is the typical manipulative Chicago-hood type.
    Many skeletons in his closet as well as Kagan's I imagine.

      There we have it - you 'imagine'
      When you don't know of any particular skeletons, you imagine them. Guilty till proven innocent. How charitable.

    Who would have thought that a liberal like Kagan would be so against free speech? I think that's reason enough for her appointment to be denied.

    I guess trying to get her eliminated by saying she was a lesbian failed for you guys.

      I don't care about her sexual perferences! What do you think of this?

      Here she implies that government should have a role in insuring "equal speech" in public discourse. A very dangerous belief for a supreme court judge that may be asked to rule on first amendment free speech issues.

      And here she advocates the government role in restricting speech:

      This isn't just about yelling fire in a crowded theater, this is about the government determining speech to be hate speech and restricting it a la Canada!
