FIVE conservatives? Let’s see: You got dependable Scalia, Thomas, and Alito. They you got Roberts (wobbly at best) and finally Anthony Kennedy? So the media paints him as a partisan “conservative” when he looks to disagree with them and a principled “swing vote” when he agrees. Got it.
The truth is there are three dependable conservative votes and four dependable liberal votes right now. Roberts is no longer dependable in my mind, and you can never pin down Kennedy. The lefties only need one more vote, just one more to a leftist majority. If Scalia, Thomas, or Kennedy retire or die Obama will definitely tip the court to a long term leftist majority. Scalia and Kennedy are 76, Thomas is 64. It’s coming.
Its coming indeed.
