Today’s Water Cooler lineup of off the beaten path online stories are: Sessions: GOP filibuster of Kagan possible, Obama’s green energy myth, American voters’ opposition to Obamacare is rock-solid


  • NewsmaxSessions: GOP filibuster of Kagan possible
Even as President Barack Obama labeled criticisms of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan “thin gruel,” Republicans wouldn’t rule out a filibuster to block the liberal activism many suspect she’ll bring to the bench, a key GOP senator said Sunday.

President Obama’s attempt to turn the Deepwater Horizon disaster into an advertisement for alternative “green” energies and “cap and trade” legislation was so offensive that even Senator Diane Feinstein was forced to observe that “the climate bill isn’t going to stop the oil leak.”

Weekly StandardAmerican voters’ opposition to Obamacare is rock-solid
The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein, referencing a few polls, recently wrote of Obamacare’s popularity: “Public opinion remains mixed, and the trend is toward support, not opposition.”  This, however, is wishful thinking on Klein’s part.  A more thorough look at the polls shows that American voters are strongly opposed to Obamacare and that this fact is not changing over time.
