Chief Justice Dies: Bush's court now?
    #4617751 - 09/03/05 11:43 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Well, the Chief Justice of the American Supreme court died today, meaning Bush will have to appoint another Supreme Court Nominee. When is the last time a president has appointed 2 justices?? The entire board will have a conventional mindset... not my ideal situation. This president has had so many influential and historic events happen to him... he'll probably be remembered for that... although he'll probably go down for bumbling up all the situations too.

He was a great man. We have lost two of the three justices that voted for medical maryjane. I would expect more sympathy from this forum. I often wonder how some of you arrive at your misguided ideologies.

And if I remember correctly, two judges who voted against the eminent domain case.

Also, this vacancy is not nearly as important as O'Connor's. While filling in a new conservative judge for a conservative vacancy is not a big deal (Rehnquist), filling in one of the most unpredictable swing-voter in recent history (O'Connor) is much more important to the future of the court.

RIP Rehnquist. I may not have agreed with all of your decisions, but you made your opinions based on the law.

What I was hoping was for the judges to fall off the bench perhaps during the next precedency, hopefully someone liberal who'll get a swing vote for some change... Not for another 20 years now...

Hopefully Bush will choose someone who can read the words of the constitution and not see things that are not there.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I dunno, they all look kinda old.

We may be able to hope for a couple more of them to be kind enough to kick it after 2008...

I say one of us try to get elected, what do you think? Legalize mushies? Haha, I think it would be quite easy to discredit any of us unfortantely. Also unforuntaly, I think one of us is exactly what the government needs in a positive of power...

Rehnquist is a conservative. If Bush replaces him with another conservative, it's still 'balanced'. The O'conner replacement is the one that will have an effect.
