    Should Barack Obama be nominated to the Supreme Court? Simple question. The Democrats were polling me.

    I very much doubt he would accept a nomination even if he were.

    "Messiah" Obama in the White House for eight, long, miserable years was devastating enough... and then have him appointed to the Supreme Court?! It would be more merciful for us to set off hydrogen bombs in our 100 largest cities and just get it the hell over with. A quick death is better than a prolonged, agonizing one....

    I think either Obama--Barack or Michelle--would be good candidates for the SCOTUS. When I voted for Barack for President, I thought he was more liberal than he turned out to be. But as a Supreme Court Justice, he'd be a centrist, which is an empty place on the court today, & one much needed. I think Michelle would be slightly more leftist than Barack, but I actually like her better. She has a heart & a fine tuned balance in her vision of America & Americans.

    The only thing a supreme court justice should be concerned about is the constitution. Forget left, right, center all that means nothing. Only the constitution matters.

    Agreed. And, considering that Obama wiped his regal ass with the Constitution every chance he got, it is unlikely that we could be saddled with a worse Supreme Court Justice than ex-prez "Messiah" Obama....

    When you mash all the bullshit out of it, what radical Democrats want is more of the same kind of judicial toilet-creature that Obama had already added two of the Supreme Court -- 'La Raza' big-wig Sotomayor, and, Elena Kagan -- who had been a Democrat government civil servant detailed to pushing through Obamacare before she was placed on the Supreme Court....

    [​IMG]. Who the hell wants THAT on the SCOTUS?!

    What a great idea!

    It's about time that the Court be filled with patriots who know the Constitution rather than with right wingers who have an anti-USA agenda.

    Should the 'constitutional scholar' that said he could not create DACA constitutionally for 1 1/2 year before he did it be on the SCOTUS? Nope.

    But it's all cool as long as Trump's doing it, and doing it all he is. His base also has no respect for our system, especially where keeping their religion out of government, laws and public schooling is concerned.

    In 1988, he enrolled in Harvard Law School, where he was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. After graduating, [The Juris Doctor degree] he became a civil rights attorney and an academic, teaching constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004.

    So you know more about law than Obama because...?

    First order of business for democrats.

    Add two positions to SCOTUS, Obama and... maybe AOC
    Follow up with a national emergency declaration for healthcare and the environment

    Then a massive military parade through every blood red state in the nation

    :popcorn:

    Sure we can. Just borrow more money from China and start a few wars.

    Seems to be the national strategy so far for both parties.

    If I was president I'd tell the Chinese to ho to hell what they have stolen from America companies more than pays for the debt they have bought.

    He's never been a judge. This would be inappropriate, in this day and age.

    every President has done that, including Trump

    Trump even wants to use steal military money to fund his pet projects, so future Presidents can do the same if he gets away with it
