“A left-leaning court could alter laws on same-sex marriage, gun rights, affirmative action, campaign finance, property and a whole host of other legal issues we might not even know about yet.”...VOTE out OBAMA!
Then he appointed liberal judges at every opportunity.
Obama would be bad, but Romney is no better.
Want to fire Obama, fine, but don't delude yourself into thinking that Romney will be any better.
At most Obama may get to replace a liberal with a liberal. But Romney will all most assuredly get to replace Scalia and Kennedy with liberals as he did in Massachusetts.
I agree 100%.
Also, the writed hit a pet peeve of mine here.
People covering the Supreme Court need to understand and use terminology more carefully.
The writed said the recent decision could be “reversed”.
That’s not really true. That case is over and done. When the SCOTUS reverses a decision that means they are reversing the decision of a lower court.
The writer here should have said that the case might be “overruled”.
That’s the proper word for when the high court overturns its own precedent.
The affirmative action case will tell us whether Roberts has “grown” and therefore gone as a conservative as some have suggested.
I don’t think he is a lost cause just yet, although my disappointment last term was profound.
Let’s get Romney in and hold his feet to the fire.
