    Well, she's anti-2nd Amendment, so I don't know how much worse it could get, but it can always get worse.

    Not sure what the point of posting this is. Its not like this is anything that you can call your member of congress over. Yeah the supremes are aging, they were aging in 2008 when Obama took office and many were surprised she didn't retire in Obama's first term.

    Only thing to do about it now is vote for pro-gun senators in November, and president 2 years later.

    Always a good idea.

    And there's always the chance they'll tick her off and she'll stay around ... just to teach those "pushy whippersnappers" a lesson.

    And then a GOP Senate and WH occupant can choose someone that actually read the Constitution, instead of using it for kindling.

    Doesn't matter who Obama nominates, they will be worse than Ginsburg. He wouldn't nominatine anything right of a full blown leftist socialist. Meh, it's another opportunity to drag an Obama acolyte through the mud.

    Hey, you never know; O's pick could always go all "O'Conner" on him and wind up being a diehard conservative after Scalia takes them shooting :evil:. It's not like a whole lot else he's planned has gone "according to plan" ;)

    I can't imagine she is going to like the idea of being discarded. Besides, Bill appointed her and she would probably prefer to be replaced by Hillary than Barry.

    What is really being suggested is that after 2016 there will be a Republican president. I has nothing to do with Congress. That is the smoke screen to hide the real fear, and now, they have actually put what they are thinking into print. The Dem's political future apparently got forecast to them at a planning session, so they are stirring the pot to make things happen earlier.

    It's a preemptive move based on desperation.

    Not completely true, nominations require senate approval.

    This may backfire on them. While she may believe in most of the Dem platform, she strikes me as a contrarian, and just may dig in her heels, and say "I'll retire when I darn feel like it!"

    I'm having a hard time with this. Not to make a joke, I really do not think it's possible to pick someone worse.

    Biggest thing we have to worry about IMHO, is if one of the pro 2A justices has a health issue that requires his replacement.

    As far as senate confirmation, most likely they'll only have anti 2A nominees and the senate is still controlled by anti 2A (insert a bad word here).

    I agree. Isn't she the one who said that Heller will stand only until some "future wiser Court" overturns it? :uhoh::banghead::banghead::banghead:
