Pompeo responds to Obama’s latest Supreme Court nomination
Pompeo: Solicitor General Kagan Sees The Court As a Means for Social Engineering, and Not as a Bulwark of Defense of the U.S. Constitution.
WICHITA, KS – Businessman and military veteran Mike Pompeo commented today on President Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Sadly, it comes as no surprise to me that President Obama has chosen to nominate to the U.S. Supreme Court an individual who has demonstrated a total lack of adherence to the limits of the Constitution,” said Pompeo. “The view that the Constitution is whatever social engineers say it should be is precisely the progressive worldview that I am running against. It is deeply at odds with American tradition and our framers intentions. I hope that the United States Senate will stand up for the Constitution and ask hard questions of Solicitor General Kagan during the confirmation process. Clearly, from what we know now, the Senate should reject this appointment.”
Pompeo added: “As a West Point graduate who also graduated from Harvard Law School, I saw first-hand and example of Solicitor Kagan’s skewed world view. She has supported the hypocrisy of an institution taking enormous amounts of federal money, yet refused to allow military recruiters on campus. This political correctness – placing social justice goals above national security in a time of war – is wrong for our country and these views are wrong for someone who will be charged with defending our Constitution. President Obama has nominated an individual who prizes the agenda of liberal progressivism well beyond adherence to enforcing the set of laws that have created this greatest of nations.”
