Mitt, Please Appoint Scalia As Chief Justice (Vanity)

Posted on 11/05/2012 3:05:08 PM PST by SarahPalin2012

Even if we can't get rid of Roberts, the Chief Justice position rightly belonged to Antonin Scalia anyway after Rehnquist. Please correct this situation.

I don’t think that’s possibly after being appointed and besides, the chief doesn’t do much more.

People have let their passions cloud their judgement. A lot of people have forgotten that Romney is not very conservative.

There is no power within the Constitution for the President to replace the Chief Justice.

You must be thinking of some other country, like say, Venezuela.

My guess also is that you have never read a word of the ruling which has made you angry. Or that the ruling has actually made repeal EASIER.

Romney is conservative enough to know this is impossible.

Don’t confuse a “vanity” with an “inanity” this is the latter.

True. The euphoria at the prospect of Obama crawling on the helicopter for his last ride is making us giddy. I’m afraid we’ll see lots of working across the aisle, but it’s a start - like what do call all the lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?

I suppose it’d be rude to suggest that Freepers fought the wrong nominee in 2005.

You are right that it can’t be done. But I am curious why you defend the Obamacare ruling. That argument that Roberts is a sly dog playing chess while all the rest of us, Scalia, Thomas and the entire conservative movement, are too stupid to realize it, is deluded or intentionally meant to make excuses for a pitiful weak Supreme Court justice who had only pretended to be a conservative. The law was dead. Dead. D E A D dead. Roberts singlehandedly resurrected it, with a ridiculous tax argument that even the libs didn’t make. If you defend that, you may be in the wrong place.

I doubt Harriet Myers would have been any better. She had Sandra Day written all over her. Sure, with hindsight, we’d take her now, because we know with 100 percent certainty that Roberts is a flake. We only suspected that Myers was, and it was documented that she had a moderate philosophy. Roberts was pretty solidly conservative in everything he had ever done up to that point.

Is that the metric version?

I just cannot friggin’ believe it . . . FR is on the ropes, and everybody (including long-time FReepers!) believes that any random thought that pops into their head deserves its own thread.

I am not “defending” the ruling.

However, it is true that a tax by any other name is still a tax as Shakespeare said, Ralph Shakespeare that is.

We all saw through The Disaster's minions in Congress charade to call it anything but a tax and apparently Roberts thinks that way too.

This is the crucial effect of the ruling though, now since taxes can be part of “reconciliation” bills which cannot be filibustered this law can be changed even if we don't get a filibuster-proof majority.

I was as disappointed as everyone else about this ruling as it appeared to be a slam dunk to me.

One good thing about it, though, is that it made people even madder and more determined to get rid of this monstrosity.

He can’t do that. A federal judge is appointed, by position, for life. That is, a federal judge cannot be demoted to, say, a federal prosecutor. It would take impeachment to get rid of Roberts, and that’s not likely to happen.

I believe Roberts did America a big favor! We Conservatives have always bitched that the Liberal Judges legislate from their Flaming Benches!
Roberts said “This Atrocity which is really a TAX needs to be legislated and defeated by Congress and the President!
We are so furious and fired up by that challenge that the Pollsters will be shocked when the turnout tomorrow is a mirrow image or even better for the Tea Party, Mitt Romney/Ryan, and America! Less than half of the Jews are going to vote for the Muslim Terrorist this time as compared to 90% in 2008, the White Male Blue Collar will be in Romney’s corner, the Women’s Vote will be for Romney as they realize the Demorats believe the only thing they want is sex and a big penis and free Birth Control and Abortions thru Late Term! and why have Latinos emigrated from Mexico and the Caribbean, because of freedom and the chance to do things on their own to better their families!
DEMORATS are thrilled with Chavez, Chairman Mao, Putin, Castro, Stalin and Hitler to name a few! Demorats are dispicable thugs and Hate-Filled Racist Mongers!
They have to Lie about everything and the only reason they survive is that they control the supposed free Media which is just a propaganda machine Hitler would be PROUD OFF!

DEMORATS are “THE ENEMY WITHIN THE GATES!” that Thomas Jefferson warned America of so many Centuries ago! and that
“Those Internal Enemies will do 10-100 times the Damage to America as those Enemies Outside America’s Gates!”

Pleas heed that Warning America! and You Freepers who like to argue about the sex of Angels and Devils of SATAN!

I guess I am too old to understand its appeal. But not too old to make money from it.

Didn’t Romney answer a primary debate question by saying he’d appoint justices like Roberts?

It’s largely an administrative role, and I understand Scalia wasn’t interested when the position opened.
