    Re: Justice Souter to retire

    How about Hillary Clinton, or Michelle Obama ,for Justice Souters position?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I have heard Clinton as a possible pick, but she will not get it for the same reason Michelle Obama will not: neither has any jurisprudence experience.

    From WikiAnswer.com


    Q: What are the requirements to be on the U.S. Supreme Court?

    Answer
    The Constitution of the United States establishes no requirements to be appointed a Justice on the Supreme Court. However, Presidents usually appoint people who have been lawyers or judges or in some way trained in the law.

    I was just seeing if I could get a few of the locals heads exploding with that comment about Michelle and Hillary. Donít expect he will nominate either one.

    Already the focus is turning toward a Hispanic or a Woman.
    Again "perception" politics may take over in the place of "ability" politics.
    It has so far.
    IOW Headlines, Flashy Message, Look at Meism... instead of Expert, Learned, Aged, Experienced.
    Pretty much the story of this administration.

    Well, the facts speak for themselves.

    Both Bushes thought they could "get along", and found out what that meant.
    Getting booted every time they turned around.

    McCain got the same treatment. Loved by the NY Times and leftist press because he leaned left... but given the choice between a real Loon Burger in Obama, and Loon Burger Lite when it was time to play for all the chips, they choose the one that had all the radical leftist leanings and then some.

    Not only did the NY Times do a 180 on McCain, they didn't even let him submit an OPED as he wanted it written. Like a school by they sent him his OPED back and said it needed corrections.

    The only way to get along with the left is to be aggressive in exposing their bizarre and hypocritical agenda and constantly stepping on their pencil necks to eek out some truth about who they are and what they want to do.

    Instead we've had a series of politicians at all levels with an R by their name that still believe in the Tooth Fairy... and that you can get along with these people... people who fight Republicans 1000 times harder than they fight terrorists or terrorism.

    The #1 question for Republican candidates should be: Do you believe you can work with Democrats? If the answer is No, or yes... if they bend... then the candidate can move forward. If he answers "yes", he can work with Democrats, then he's disqualified.

    We don't need to stop what's going on, we need to reverse it, and this will never be accomplished "getting along" with this breed of Democrat.

    Republicans in Congress need to kick Democrats in the balls daily, including their women. Show them how much their loved. Gridlock is good, and so is partisanship. Defeat their every plan no matter how small. They're socialists, and every law they pass and every suit they file is an effort to destroy the Constitution.

    And yes, I QUESTION their patriotism, every minute of the day.

    "Patriotism" does not just mean waving a flag and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance....just thought you should know.

    Not legal to name Michelle. Nepotism laws and all that. Besides, we don't want a bigot on the court, do we?

    And no way is he going to name the Red Queen. There hasn't been a Weatherman on the bench yet...

    If not him, Obama will name someone else. The only guarantee is that Obama will name someone who's purpose is to destroy the Constitution.

    He is a Democrat after all.

    Fortunately it wasn't one of the four American justices that retired, just one of the traitors.

    Disagree? Ask yourself what Souter choose to retire under a anti-American president like Obama instead of under Bush, when he would have provided the nation with the opportunity of having another Roberts, Alito, Scalia or Thomas, men who've proven their loyalty to the United States and the Constitution.

    Speaking of timing, I asked the question about Specter switching parties just as this was announced. Coincidence?
