Washington, D.C. – President Barack Obama is expected to name the second Supreme Court judicial nomination of his Administration, Elena Kagan, this morning. According to Concerned Women for America (CWA), by naming Kagan President Obama has squandered a prime opportunity to unite the country after the bruising year-long healthcare battle. Rather than name someone who would be a uniter, President Obama chose an extreme Leftist best known for banning military recruiters from the campus of Harvard University when she was the dean of the Law School.
Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization with over half a million members, released the following statement:
“In her disdain for the military, Elena Kagan considers her own views and opinions as more important than obeying the law and equipping the country with the best fighting force in the world. We need justices who put national security over the feelings or demands of special interest groups.
“We urge the US Senate to oppose the nomination of Elena Kagan. We want a justice who will defend the Constitution, support our families and uphold the right to life and traditional marriage.”
