White House Press Secretary Clueless on Kagan Recusal

There has been quite a bit of news lately about whether or not Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan should recuse herself from the court’s hearing of the constitutionality of Obamacare, specifically the insurance mandate.

In response to various lawsuits filed against the Department of Justice, numerous pages of documentation have been obtained that indicates that when Kagan was acting as the Solicitor General of the United States that she had been present on more than one occasion when Obamacare was discussed.  There is also been testimony by several people that they were present in meetings with Kagan and others when Obamacare was discussed.

In one of the newly released DOJ emails, Kagan wrote that she was quite enthusiastic for the passage of Obamacare or more precisely, the Affordable Care Act.  According to federal law, this email alone is sufficient grounds for a mandatory recusal of Kagan from the court’s hearing on the matter.

Yet, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has stated that it’s a mystery to him as why anyone would even question the need for Kagan to recuse herself from the hearings.  Is Carney totally clueless as to what is going on in the real world?  Or is this typical of the current President and his staff as they lie and deny obvious truth as if somehow their words will make it all go away?  They believe they are above the law and they obviously band together to pervert the justice system to declare them legal and right in order to further push their socio-communistic fascist ideas into action.
