    A picture speaks a thousand words.

    Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important aspect regarding the upcoming presidential election: appointments to the Supreme Court.

    "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 these 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.

    5. 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 5 new Justices over the next 4 years, or over the next 8 years if a new President gets a second term. This election is about much more than the ObamaCare Tax.

    Whomever 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, THINK AGAIN.

    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 Eric Holder as your next Supreme Court Justice!

    I am more concerned with Mitt and the Evangelicals being in control of those nominees.

    Only a dumb DittoTard like McNutzi would be stupid enough to not know that Holder would have to outlive Roberts to be Chief Justice. :cuckoo:

    Imagine that....a liberal Supreme Court

    Obama needs to follow the GOP lead and appoint 30 year old liberal justices

    So we are supposed to vote for Mitt Romney in hopes he'll give us more judges like John Roberts? :eusa_whistle:

    Nutters don't even know why they don't like Holder. They hate the fact that heis an Obama appointee. Period.
