A justice who understood the proper and traditional role of the court shouldn't be replaced by some nut-bar ALCU brown shirted activist who thinks the supreme court is just the right agent for social change.
I suspect he’s perfectly fine with an activist judge replacing him.
But his advise is just as good for the normal side of the court.
Media looks for people to say what they want to write a story about. They have their agenda and if they can quote someone saying what jives with their agenda to say it for them that’s what they want. Then they can call it “news” instead of “editorializing”.
He wants Ginsburg to resign so Obama can appoint a replacement before the democrats lose control of the Senate later this year.
That’s what the brohura is about.
Well of course. Justices have been doing that from the beginning.
Yeah, correct. THere’s been on a lot of open pressure on her - big hints - to maybe step down.
I hope she remains the self-centered liberal that she is and stays on the court past Obama’s time in office.
I think it’s a good thing for the fool to expose his real thinking and agenda.
It’s obvious now that he was a patently political activist, not an impartial judge, and his entire term on the court was about using his illegitimate authority to effect political change that he knew he could not do through the ballot box.
In short, if there was ever any doubt that the SCOTUS is being used by the Left to force their agenda, this guy just dispelled it.
