So our choices are: elect President Romney, or learn to live with SCOTUS Justices Holder, Clinton, and Frank

November 2, 2012

Or maybe it would be Justices Holder, Clinton, and Clinton. But then they’d have to live in the same city together.

Here’s the story:

Three of the nine justices on a U.S. Supreme Court that has decided many significant issues by 5-4 votes over the past decade will turn 80 years of age before the 2016 presidential election.

The three justices are Antonin Scalia, an anchor of the court’s conservative wing, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an anchor of the court’s liberal wing, and Anthony Kennedy, who is often the decisive swing vote in 5-4 opinions.

Not that I completely trust Romney to make the right choices, but…well, hell, Reagan nominated Kennedy, and look how he turned out.

    Electing a president comes with the knowledge that the campaign speeches are what they would like to achieve, not what they can achieve. It also does not absolve us of action. The Founders never envisioned a auto-pilot system. We must always be engaged lest the tree of liberty shrivel and cease.
