    Justice Stevens says he'll retire in Obama's term

    ...

    "I will surely do it while he's still president," Stevens told The Washington Post.

    why does it matter if it "surely" must be cone while he is still president?

    So your questioning why an 89 year old man believes he would "surely" retire in the next year or two?

    Poor Stevens is in a bind. He wanted to retire but had to hold on until a marxist was elected president.

    Now he doesn't know when he should because no one can tell when WooWoo Ginsburg is going to croak.

    Yes, those political hack presidents who appoint justices to the Supreme Court who mirror their views and the views of their party.

    By the way, how are Justices Alito and Roberts doing these days?

    He will have to wait even longer, since we haven't had a marxist president elected yet.

    Was Yurt similarly upset when Sandra Day O'Connor pitched a fit on election night in 2000 because she was considering retirement and would have to delay it if Gore won?

    "I will surely do it while he's still president,"

    There certainly must be a law telling Supreme Court Justices when they are allowed to retire and when they are NOT allowed to retire.....
