Posted on 07/20/2014 6:25:43 AM PDT by MeshugeMikey
The White House says its not worried about a possible retirement by Ruth Bader Ginsburg or any other Supreme Court justice.
Speculation on the high courts next vacancy has centered on the 81-year-old Ginsburg, who has had health problems.
Some on the left have openly worried it could be tough for the Obama administration to fill a vacancy, especially if the GOP wins back the Senate this fall.

Well, if they say they aren’t worried, then you know they are.
True. Add to that that SCOTUS judges are really trolls and live 100+ years and, well, for the first time ever I’m with the ODimwit WH on this one.
I’m more worried that we lose a conservative justice during Obama’s term. Then we’re really up a creek.
I am worried about Kennedy.
The GOP rubber-stamped the ACLU Ginsberg appointement. They won’t do anything with Obama’s next appointement.
Just appoint a new Justice via Executive Order.
Should Ginsberg retire BEFORE odumbo is out, he will certainly pick another demodummie supporter, as his record has shown. As for the Rhinos, forget about the elections, they’ll still confirm who he picks.
Even if (big IF) the gop-e takes the senate, the hildebeast will just foist some lib/prog/socialist/commie upon us once she’s (s)elected. CONfirmation hearings? They’ll probably just bypass those to please the 2nd (and smartest woman in the world) female (p)resident. After all, she probably still has keys to the WH.
In that the WH lies as much as do Afghans, which is about everything, even if there is no reason to lie, they are probably shaking in their boots to replace as many SCOTUS justices as possible with young, radical fanatics.
I strongly suspect that the reason Ginsburg hasn’t resigned is because she wants her chair to be a “Jewish” chair, and she knows that Obama would replace her with some imbecile like Thurgood Marshall or Al Sharpton. Quite possibly a viciously antisemitic and anti-Israel Muslim.
I can’t quite blame her for that.
I also believe that in spite of her political leanings, she’s still perceptive enough to see what 0bama is doing to this place. She won’t say anything, but she’s not going to help 0bama ruin the nation.
I wonder if the authors know how many Republicans voted against Ginsburg in the first place?
(hint - only one hand needed, and you could have sustained a cherry bomb accident first).
Nope. And if there is a vacancy and the GOPe holds the Senate ODimwit can just wait it out until Hildabeast is POTUS and the Dims have 60 Senate seats.
Given his track record of selecting 2 of the least qualified candidates in the history of the court, I am sure O. will once again disappoint.
Obama is going to appoint Justice Holder. Would that be an absolute nightmare!!
Ginsberg is a fine American & fantastic justice... Wait... What?

“especially if the GOP wins back the Senate this fall. “
What horsesh**. All Obama has to do is nominate a woman or minority to the court and scream racism or “war on women” until they are approved by the gutless RINOs in the Senate.
Because it “wouldn’t be the right time” to fight against it for the RINOs.
LOL nobody said she was anything but perceptive enough to see that 0bama is ruining the Country.
Whether she thinks Egypt should model a constitution after ours or not - for whatever reasons - is not relevant there.
I think she doesn’t like what 0bama is doing to her nation. I could be wrong of course - but the link doesn’t go to that IMO.
Actually, I’m hoping that we conservatives can count on the one trait of Liberals - their own selfish desires at the expense of others. While Ginsberg IS a rabid liberal, I don’t personally think she’s all that invested in Obama, especially with the quality of Obama’s last two appointments to the SC solely because of ethnicity and sexual orientation.
I’m guessing she’ll hold on to the very end like Teddy, or Byrd, or any of the others banking on Hillary to take over. In that case, I hope she hangs on and I pray that Hillary is finished.
Only way this hardass liberal witch will leave the SCOTUS is in a box.
Or on her broom
In a sane world, she should have been impeached at the VERY least and removed from the bench... She swore to uphold the constitution she thinks someone else shouldn’t use as a base to start theirs...
Her opinions are motivated by ideology & politics... When she votes against Obama it’s because she doesn’t want a Rep being able to do it in the future either...
You give her more credit that I do...
If Obama nominated Karl Marx, Graham, McCain and a dozen other RINO fools would vote to confirm him.
Im thinking she might be alright with “sharia” law”....
Why should they be worried? There are plenty more liberal nut jobs where she came from. All you gotta do is look under rocks.
The media and the rats are two divisions of the same enterprise. Sometimes it's difficult to tell which one controls the policy committee.
Greater “D.C.” is full of em..
Stay the course Ruth, hang in there. I know that you know that these people are MORONS. We do not need another Obama pick on the SCOTUS. Kagen, maybe, was OK, maybe. Sotomayor is not too wise.
The Rs better run somebody good in ‘16. I want a person who will shake things up. Who will play turnabout.
and, most importantly, who will NOT CARE what the NY Times says about him/her.
i sense that Ruth’s too stubborn to move on on account of anyone else’s opnion.
Why worry? McConnell has already said he will change the Senate rules back to what they were before the cattle rustler Reid changed them.
And the RINOs will make sure the wannabe king gets what he wants.
If secession not, then revolution must.
Broom? Broom? Are you saying he’d replace her with Hilary!???
As long as she leaves AFTER January 2015!
I am praying for no Supreme vacancies in the next 2 terrible years.
I [Hatch] asked whether he [Clinton] had considered Judge Stephen Breyer of the First Circuit Court of Appeals or Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals....I knew them both and believed that, while liberal, they were highly honest and capable jurists and their confirmation would not embarrass the President. From my perspective, they were far better than the other likely candidates from a liberal Democrat administration.
**Stay the course Ruth, hang in there.**
Isn’t she Jewish?
If she objects, it's to the means used. She may be offended becuase he's doing the dirty work that she thinks ought to be done by SCOTUS.
The left don't have to worry about the "GOP" not rubber-stamping an Obama justice nomination -- that's a forgone conclusion. However if a substantial number of CONSERVATIVES win in the Senate, that's another story.
Agreed. It's b/c she is smart enough to know that if the means/methods being used are allowed to stand that the next R president can use the same methods to both undo 0bama's excesses AND push farther the other direction.
Uh-oh - let’s hope she doesn’t have an unfortunate “accident” in the next few weeks.
stuff happens....particularly to those who might represent an impediment to Obie The Tyrants devious plans.
2014 might well be The turning point.
