Is Kamala Harris really Obama 2.0?

Am I alone in being terrified of Kamala Harris? Every time I see her or hear her, the only thing I can see is Obama 2.0 waiting for her chance to follow the trail he blazed.

President Trump wants to replace Justice Kennedy with one "...who are largely considered either textualists or strict constructionists when it comes to making constitutional judgements." (Fox News, 06/29/18)

To that, Harris says (and I quote): "We are looking at the destruction of the Constitution."

Mirriam-Webster defines textualism as "strict or rigid adherence to a text", and they define a "strict constructionist" as "one who favors giving a narrow conservative construction of a given document or instrument; specifically one who favors a strict construction of the Constitution of the United States".

So, according to Harris, strictly adhering to the Constitution is synonymous with destroying it.

This woman is getting far too much media coverage for my liking. I could destroy her political career with one Q/A session, if she'd ever be willing to go on the record with me with full live media coverage (so they couldn't edit the question and answer before airing them).

In early May, Gina Haspel (President Trump's nominee to head the CIA) was being questioned in her confirmation hearing, when Senator Harris repeatedly demanded a yes or no answer to the question: "Do you believe in hindsight that those [enhanced interrogation] techniques were immoral?"

Now, for starters, Harris was trying to make the most of her 15 minutes; she knew damn well when she asked the question that there is absolutely no way to answer this question with a simple yes or no.

If I were in Ms. Haspel's seat, I would have answered like this.

"Senator Harris, if you personally had the power to authorize enhanced interrogation techniques in August 2001, and the information you obtained in those sessions prevented September 11th from happening, would you have ordered them used?

If your answer to that is no, then you're saying that you're more comfortable with those 3000 people dying than you are water boarding a terrorist, correct?

But if your answer to that question is yes, would you say that your use of enhanced interrogation techniques--which saved 3000 lives and prevented multiple terrorists attacks--was immoral?"

God, this woman scares me. Anyone else see what I see, or is my paranoia on full display?

    She 's a black female who's already proven she can be a winning politician. This could really be bad.

      Unfortunately, the country is indeed on a track to destruction, and we are pretty much powerless to stop it. If we argue logic and reason with them, they just change the subject into some emotional issue of no relevance.

      The only saving grace to this is that USA will NOT be a super power shortly, and I suspect other countries will take up the slack and hopefully be better than what the USA will become. USA will be venezuela V2.0

        No way will the USA retain power of any freaking significance should the left, as rabid as it is now, take over and throw open the borders,.
        Kiss freedom goodbye.

          The Usa will never be the same, just as Europe is becoming Muslim and lawless.

            In that event, I'm hoping I may at least hang on to my shotgun.
            Joe Biden appears to approve of using one to fire a warning shot.
            But in the kind of world he also appears to approve of, I'd be arrested for using any gun to defend myself.
            That already happens in some USA places.
            Sweet home Alabama! At least that's the way my home is so far . . .

    Her problem is that she is an entitled black woman, the worst kind. Those people should never be in positions of power. They are a snake pit of hidden agendas and not to be trusted at all.

    The true barometer of this would be to find out if that left wing moron's, Chris Mathews, leg tingles when she speaks. I suspect he may drool a bit as well, if he ever interviews her.

    Yes, it is scary there are that many Stalin's useful idiots still parading about even though Stalin is long gone.

    Contradictory person, Harris seems to go where ever the Community Activisms winds blow. I read an internet article that Harris will take advantage of whatever can accelerate her ambition to run for President. The expense to run for president could stop her unless she goes to Soros for those funds.

    Monsters don't always look like the one created by Dr. Frankenstein. As some folks found out, they can be your next door neighbor, or a congressperson.

    Harris is no Obama. For starters, she is about as smooth a talker as the guy from the ADT commercials. She's from Commifornia, not Chicago where Obama enjoyed the support of Sharpton and dozens of other smooth talkers.

    To understand her claim you have to understand that a liberal's view of the Constitution is not as law, but guidance. They view it as a "living" document, to be interpreted as the mores and societal values "evolve." When you tell them a judge is a textualist, all their dreams of the convenience of activism go out the window.

    I have no fear this bimbo will become president. The Democrat party is on a swift road to destruction, veering crazily to left, and will find itself in a political ditch. Any sane voices are being drowned out by the loud voices of a hysterical base that demands open borders (even when over 60% of registered Democrat voters want immigration laws upheld), "free" healthcare and college, government-guaranteed jobs, and increased taxes to fund all of this idiocy.

    What's telling is the growth of "Walking Away" videos by former Democrats who can no longer stomach the direction their party has taken. The Democrat party is headed to become this century's Whig party, destined for irrelevance. Expect the rise of the Libertarian party as the new loyal opposition, and then we might begin to see a return to honest debate on the future of our country.

    I want to see Maxine Waters get LOTS of TV coverage. She is at least honest about what the liberal agenda really wants. Her and that socialist that just got elected in NYC.

    The rest of the liberals are sneaky liars, like this excuse for a woman. They emotionally manipulate, tell half truths, change the subject when confronted. I , for one, dont even want to live in a world controlled by these "people".

    As a Californian I can say that I think she's going to go all the way.

    Be afraid...

      Half the electorate will never vote for another Obama-like candidate, and by the time the current investigations are over her chances will be considerably diminished by her poor choices. Yes, she might win in moron filled CA, yellow journalist believer NY, and with a tiny minority of brainwashed leftists who will never understand that the most precious right of freedom can't flourish under any statist like the 4 Democrat and 4 Republican statist presidents that ruled 1963-80 and 1989-2016.

    Harris is the quintessential black politician using all the right connections/moves.

    Hussein was apparently smitten by her.

    Harris is a San Francisco democrat. Need to say anything more?

    I heard Harris speak and met her very briefly a couple weeks ago. She seemed very well-spoken. I'm not longer a believer in politicians being great or evil. I have great respect for President Obama. My gut feeling is Harris is a good politician (I mean that in the backhanded complement way), and not a repeat of any other politician.

    The fundraiser was a joint event with Senator Baldwin, who I have great respect for. What stood out is how Baldwin said she was happy President Trump agreed with her on some protectionist measure and now she needed him to follow through. I thought how dangerous it will be if many of Baldwin supporters and many of Trump supporters realize they want the same thing: gov't to use force to fix people's problems.

    I can't tell what to think of Harris. President Obama, as politicians go, is the best president I can realistically imagine being elected. I don't know if she's the next generation of Obama. She came off as polished-- too much of Coastie for the Upper Midwest, but not so much so to keep her from winning in a national election.

      Your judgement has been proven faulty repeatedly in the past, and you are continuing that unbroken streak of failure in every unsupported feeling based comment. You will be clinging to your irrational love for Obama as he goes to prison shackled to his conspirators Hitlery and Cigar Bill.
