Skip to comments.Whoever is elected President in 2012 will appoint Supreme Court justices

I recently saw a news article in which someone was appealing to disaffected liberals by pointing out that if Obama is reelected, he'll likely appoint at least one and probably two or perhaps three Supreme Court justices if he's reelcted. We need to keep that in mind. Roe vs. Wade could be overturned in our lifetimes if Obama is defeated. Two of the Republican appointees (Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy) and one Democrat appointee (Stephen Breyer) are in their 70's and presumably would like to retire soon. Do you want Obama to name their replacements?
Yeah, it’s that important. Any remarks you have to offer will be valuable.
Wasn’t there big health issues with Ginsburg a couple years ago too?
Ruth Beta Ginsburg is in her 80s - she’s more likely to go than the 2 Conservative Justices...
Liberal Romney appoints liberal judges!! No Romney!! No way!!
“Do you want Obama to name their replacements?”
That couples with Obama’s second term would be the end of our country as we know it. I shudder to think of it. GO NEWT GO!
My money would be on Ginsberg and Kennedy stepping down.
I believe that Rick Santorum would make an excellent Supreme Court Justice. It fits him much better than President.
Yeah, cause Obama would be so much better.
Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy will live forever and remain on the bench just to spite them....
That diss at the State of the Union a while back makes sure they will stay on.
That’s a good idea!
I forgot about Ruth Ginsburg, my mistake.
And that is exactly why it is important that Gingrich win the nomination as he would undoubtably beat Obama in November and appoint true conservatives to the SCOTUS who will overturn Roe v. Wade and make abortion a crime, just like the murder of a child we can then prosecute abortionists and women who have abortion with Capital Murder.
When is the point in time, after which we are out of the danger zone of another appointment prior to 1/2013?
There is some minimum time needed to make a new appointment... making a selection, submission to the Senate, potential filibuster time, etc.
Just wondering what is the time frame to be free and clear of any changes by zer().
And if Romney get elected we’ll get more Souters.
In all honesty, it is not an original idea. There are people behind the scenes talking about it already ... say considerations to be made after the FL primary.
Correct, to replace the ones he’s subpoenaed! Because once Newt subpoenas them, they’ll be testifying till Kingdom come and won’t have time to hand down liberal rulings... j/k
Oh, man, I want to see a Newt Gingrich presidency in the worst way!
Romney=Obama....with the exception that Obama is more genuine, more likable, and more conservative....ha ha
