Skip to comments.Next president will reshape U.S. courts from top to bottom
Posted on 10/05/2008 5:24:40 PM PDT by Daffynition
WASHINGTON The next president will tip the courts, one way or another.
Supreme Court openings are all but guaranteed, and that's just the start: 44 trial and appellate federal judicial vacancies already await filling. There will be more.
Consider this: President Bush has placed 316 judges on the bench during his two terms. One out of three federal judges now owes a lifetime-tenured job to the current president. Whoever replaces Bush will be likewise recasting courthouses, top to bottom.
"The proper role of the judiciary has become one of the defining issues of this presidential election," Republican presidential candidate John McCain said in May. "It will fall to the next president to nominate hundreds hundreds of qualified men and women to the federal courts, and the choices we make will reach far, far into the future."
In truth, many polls suggest, relatively few voters consider the federal judiciary a defining issue. But those who do care, care a lot.
On Monday, timed to the opening of the Supreme Court's new term, the conservative Judicial Confirmation Network will begin running on ads Fox News Channel attacking Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

Here’s the conclusion: “Ken Burns on McCain: Make Nice and Allow Obama to Defeat You”
This is the #1 reason to vote for McCain. The opportunity to replace a Stevens, Ginsburg, Breyer, Souter, or Kennedy with a much more conservative justice is highly important. The only problem is that in a prospective McCain administration such a justice would have to make it through a Dem controlled Senate.
If there is anyone who thinks that an Obama Presidency would help the country by reviving the Republican Party, REMEMBER THIS!!!!!!
A post I’ve sent to other threads:
The McCain campaign has got to talk about what happens to the Supreme Court after this election. Two openings probably, maybe more. I cannot accept that people want the Hillary Clintons, Ted Kennedys, Terry McCauliffes, etc. creating our national ethic for years to come. Except for nationa security, the other issues pale in comparison to this.
Not to be cruel or anything...but WE know that already. (regarding headline)
At least those colored keffiyehs shouldn’t clash with those black robes if Obama HUSSEIN Barack Osama wins.
This is why we MUST win.

The Our Country Deserves Better PAC has one objective: to defeat Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election. We won't be subtle or vague - America's future is at stake, and it's time someone stood up to Barack Obama and told the American people why this man cannot, and must not, serve as our next Commander in Chief.
We are going to give the American people the truth in no uncertain terms because that is what they expect, but haven't been getting from either the news media or many of our political leaders.

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
I understand the title and the message, but in truth .. we will no longer be American ... we will be AINO ... and in a generation or two ..... not even that.
I doubt the average joe even thinks about this: “In truth, many polls suggest, relatively few voters consider the federal judiciary a defining issue. But those who do care, care a lot.”
We’re in the *care-a-lot* camp.
Unless Obama Bin Laden (the exalted, all-knowing, all-powerful, Magic Negro, and wannabe President) gets a 60-40 Demohack Senate, you can be sure that it will be payback time for the Repubs on the Judiciary Committee. Enjoy your crap sandwich Leahy.
Prepare for the clarion call...
It is time.
Pass this down the line.
If we are to avoid an Obama Adminstration, we must start now.
Signs, bumperstickers, neighborly chats, blogs, letters to the editor.
The prospect of an Obama Presidency is all the motivation you should need.
Start now! Go!
Signs, money, bumperstickers, blogs, letters to the editor.
The prospect of an Obama Administration should scare the hell out you.
I can’t see the go-along-to-get-along Republicans putting up much of a fight against judicial appointees.
Senate comity, don’t ‘cha know. /s
