In her confirmation hearing Tuesday, Elena Kagan said words that actually mean that President Obama was incorrect when he stated during his State of the Union speech:

"The Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests -- including foreign companies -- to spend without limit in our elections. Well I don't think American elections should be bankrolled by America's most powerful interests, and worse, by foreign entities."

Elena Kagan, watch out. President Obama does not approve of people who criticize him.

She could have avoided commenting on the speech. But, as a great teacher, she had to be truthful.
