Obama's Radical Court Pick Has Only 60% Success Rate With Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has only agreed with Elena Kagan, Barack Obama’s latest radical pick to the court, in 3 out of 5 decisions. Today she lost another one.
The Caucus reported:

Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings haven’t even begun, and the score is already 1-0 against her.

The Supreme Court on Monday morning ruled against Ms. Kagan in a case she had argued as solicitor general when it decided that a quasi government agency that audits public companies is unconstitutional. The board’s members are appointed and removed by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and not the president – a violation of Article II of the Constitution, which vests executive power in the president, the court ruled…

The White House notes that Ms. Kagan’s overall Supreme Court record is 3-2. That is, three wins and two losses in the five cases she has argued.

At least this is better than Obama’s first radical pick to the court Sonia Sotomayor who had been reversed, vacated, or criticized nine out of ten times by the U.S. Supreme Court. 9 of 10 times.

Of course, the media always called Bush’s mainstream picks “conservative” but call Obama’s radical far left picks “centrist.”
