She should sleep on it...
Link to a long Style Section thumbsucker about Ruth Bader Ginsberg and whether or not she should retire and enjoy life or stay on the bench.
I would suggest that even Ruth Bader Ginsberg, stupid as she is, realizes that all of the honorary luncheons, special guest opera tickets and fancy soirees would end the instant she stepped down from the high court. So quitting her job to enjoy being Queen Bee full time is not really an option.
It’s always tease, tease, tease
You’ll have be when I’m on my knees.
(Scratch that....bad mental images!)
I’m depending on Ginsburg’s ego to outweigh her commitment to “the Cause”.
Please, Please wait till early 2017.
No reason for her to go, she is old but healthy.
I have no reason to state this either way, other than the employment and continuing professional engagement of this fine Supreme Court justice.
Oh, and by the way, I’m sure that our next POTUS, should he be faced with it, President Cruz will pick someone just as competent, if not a little bit more so...
I suspect she will sit it out and let God decide when it is time to go.
"Let me sleep on it."
I say stay...only because if she went now Osama Obama would replace her with someone *at least* as bad (if not worse) and someone much,much younger.If it wasn’t for that I’d be asking if “rot in hell” was an option.
I suspect that the reason the WashPo is running this article is to plant the idea that she should leave now, so Obama gets to name her replacement.
Better a 40-year-old liberal idiot, who can stay on the bench for another 50 years, than a 80-year-old liberal idiot, who has another ten years, at best.
1. Obama needs to appoint someone even worse.
2. She’s entitled.
Now, which of these two is more likely to appeal to her?
Assuming she's an atheist (a very safe assumption,I'd say) does that mean that God won't have any say in the matter?
Please please stay at least 3 years and 3 months.
she should stay until we get the white house back, for if she does go then bozo the clown will only get a young loon in there and sit on the bunch for about 40 years
Makes no difference one way or another. She would be replaced with another liberal moonbat, so it’s a zero sum.
Better she stay than to let Obozo pick a forty-something that would possibly be there another forty years.....................
I ne'er thought I'd say
to the wrinkled Ruth, "Please stay" -
for worse will follow
I hear that assisted suicide is popular in some nations.... wait, what was the question?
And it’s not about a Dem getting to appoint a replacement, it’s about OBAMA getting to appoint one.
The last President to get three appointments to the Court was Reagan. There’s no doubt int mind that this story was pushed by the Obama crowd to pressure Ginsburg into giving Obama another seat to fill.
Put her on life support until January 2017.
I think the Liberals are beginning to see it all slip away. That is why they are so desperate to get Obamacare fully implemented as soon as possible and why they want to solidify their control on institutions like the Supreme Court, academia, and the bureaucracy.
They know that a long long time in the electoral wilderness awaits them. After the chickens come home to roost from the policies of the last five years, a Democrat is going to have a hard time getting elected dog-catcher, much less President.
Want to know what the long-term forecasts say for 2014 and 2016? Your best indicator is stories like this one.
She has had two bouts with cancer—colon in 1999 and pancreatic in 2009. I wouldn’t describe her as being healthy. She is 80 years old.
She is going to step down sometime. I suspect she is waiting for Hillary to enter the WH. Hillary is a virtual lock to be the next President.
It's always tease, tease, tease.
You're happy when I'm on my knees.
If she goes there will be trouble.
And if she stays it will be double.
“Please, Please wait till early 2017.”
YES!! Even if she has to be zombied, hooked up to a respirator, strapped to her chair, and have “life” support tubes sticking out of all of her natural and unnatural bodily orifices. After that, pull the plug.
Stay. Stay until you can be replaced by someone who loves the Constitution.
Surely, someone of her huge stature should not be encouraged to leave just for a little tinge of cancer. We have modern medicine, she has modern medicine... we have modern government-run health insurance... she has modern government-run health insurance. Couldn't be better if she was on the SCOTUS equivalent in South Africa. Long live (3+ years) Ruth Ginsburg!
Ruth Bader Ginsborg?
BRILLIANT!! I conceived it, your incomparable artistic talent executed it.
So at the same time the msm is insisting that shrillery is a lock in 2016, they’re also so deathly afraid that a President Cruz might appoint Ginsberg’s successor that they’re trying to kick her to the curb now.
If Hillary! was a mortal lock for the Presidency, as everybody insists that she is, they would not care when Ruth Bader Ginsburg retires.
But they think it is important that Ginsburg retire right now.
I think they know, full well, that Hillary! does not have a snowball's chance in 2016, so they are getting as many things as they can set in stone now, before the deluge. They will try to talk the Democrats up for the next few years, either because they think they might have a chance of being effective or out of force of habit. But at the end of the day, they see gravity taking hold.
Hillary! got her butt kicked by a two-year Senator of marginal abilities and non-existent accomplishments back in 2008. What makes anybody think she would do better in 2016?
Furthermore, I think they are worried about the Democrat Senate in 2014. If the Republicans swing the Senate, another Justice Kagan might actually be subject to some scrutiny.
They want Ginsburg gone now so her successor can be in place well before the 2014 elections.
Does not matter. Der Obama ignores them: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3075984/posts
