Carney’s basic argument here is that Kagan was vetted in her nomination process and therefore suggesting she should now recuse herself is nothing but a political attack. Puh-lease. There are emails that have only been recently made available that raise legitimate questions regarding her involvement in ObamaCare, that Carney completely ignores, as you’ll see at the end of this video.
Also, they could only get 5 Republican votes (Collins, Graham, Gregg, Lugar,Snowe) in 2010 for her nomination. The Democrats were only 1 vote short of their near super-majority being unanimous. To suggest that her vetting was impartial and legitimate is looking at it through partisan eyes. But that’s exactly what Carney is doing, especially considering that he is ignoring legitimate evidence that suggests she should recuse herself.
What a hack:
