Kagan's Disdain For Constitutional Law

by Phil Boehmke - May 30th, 2010 - American Thinker

The question of Ms. Kagan’s respect for the Constitution as the fundamental law of our Republic may be illustrated by one [of] the decisions she made as Dean of Harvard Law School. reports.
As dean, Kagan won approval from the faculty in 2006 to make major changes to the Harvard Law's curriculum.

"My understanding is that she instituted three new courses to the required curriculum and, in so doing, got rid of a requirement to take constitutional law," Robert Alt, senior legal fellow and deputy director of the Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at the Heritage Foundation, told

"Currently at Harvard, constitutional law is not required for first-year law students, or even for graduation," Alt added.

It is a frightening prospect that someone who feels that constitutional law is not important enough as to be a required course of study for the prospective lawyers in her charge, should be seated on the Supreme Court where her influence would be felt for decades to come. As Mr. Obama continues to remake our Republic to suit his socialist agenda he understands the crucial importance of having like minded individuals on the high court to fend off potential legal challenges.

It is frightening. This person, like Obama, sees herself as destroying the Constitution to come up with something better. Better in her mind.

She will never live up to her pledge to defend that which most Americans believe is the basis of our social contract, our Constitution. It is frightening that this woman desires a position whose oath of office she has campaigned to violate.

We could use some more upholding of our Constitution. Unfortunately, with Bush's reign, now followed by Obama's, we seem to have bipartisan dismissal of it.

I agree. The TEA Parties are outside the Republican umbrella primarily because they don't trust the Republicans any more than the Democrats to uphold our social contract.
