Senator Richrad Lugar (IN) Will Vote to Confirm Kagan

Posted by courage On July - 22 - 2010

Wake-up Hoosiers, a second enforcer of consequences is hiding in the barn.  Another Tricky Dicky is slithering through the streets of Washington.  Lugar  praises Kagan’s life experience ignoring the liberty destroying positions she embraces.  Write Lugar today and ask him to reconsider his vote on this appointment.  To view some of Kagan’s antifreedom/liberty positions see this earlier post.

Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana has become the second Republican to back President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Solicitor General Elena Kagan.

“I have concluded that Solicitor General Elena Kagan is clearly qualified to serve on the Supreme Court and that she has demonstrated a comprehensive knowledge of court history and decisions,” Mr. Lugar said in a statement posted to his Web site Wednesday. “I believe that she has had a distinguished career in both education and public service and is well regarded by the legal community and her peers.”

Mr. Lugar is the first in his party to publicly pledge his support of Ms. Kagan since Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, joined the 12 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee in the vote to forward her nomination to the full Senate.

The full Senate will vote on the nomination before the summer recess, which begins Aug. 9. Here’s an account of how other Republicans are expected to vote.
