    Justice Souter to retire

    Supreme Court Justice Souter To Retire : NPR

    Check it out! Looks like he's retiring.

    Doesn't seem like that big a deal to me though, because souter is a liberal and OBama will just appoint another liberal, court makeup aint changing!

    Well it is a somewhat big deal for two reasons. The most immediate is the opportunity this presents Obama to command more stage-time. He's going to announce his nominee with much fanfare... it will all be highly staged and the press corps will eat it up. Expect a quick and easy confirmation. Any grillings or concerns of GOP members will be ignored or mocked by the MSM. This will be more all-Obama-all-the-time coverage. He'll make the most of it.

    Second, Souter may side with the liberal four... but expect Obama's nominee to be much further to the left. As far left as possible. He may not be in as strong a position two or three years from now. He's got to push the envelope now.

    This is excellent!

    The American people can get a good view of Obama's standing by his choice here. He ran on the "change" platform, and that he'd bring the country together. When he nominates someone to the left of Ruth Bader...

    Now maybe she can retire too.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    That is the uber-tolerant, compassionate, bi-partisan, open minded Liberal for you.

    A little glimpse into the "Change, Hope, and Unity" The Obamatrons would like to see and how they wish for it to be achieved.

    Now if they had only spoken about the terrorist enemies this way when Bush was President... but "No, no, no..."

    This announcement and Specter's party change just couldn't be coincidence, could they?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
