Something to ponder on November 6th…future Spreme Court Justices


Columnist
Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question
regarding the upcoming presidential election.

 

If
Mitt wins the nomination, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For
my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep four
things in mind:

1. Justice Scalia just turned 78

2. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year

3. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August

4. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.

 

In
addition, Justice Ginsburg has Pancreatic Cancer. Justice Stephens has
already said he would retire and is just waiting for Obama to be reelected.
The next president could appoint as many as 4 new Justices over next 8 years.
This election is about more than ObamaCare Tax.

 

We
wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as
president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one new
member of the Supreme Court, in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured
federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our
lives for decades to come.

 

If
you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or
Barack Obama, I think you’re smokin‘ something funky.

 

So
for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get
nominated, or writing in a candidate who can’t win, imagine this:

 

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER

 

After you have stopped gasping for breath,
kindly send this forward to your list of concerned citizens.
