    I'm a lot more worried that Donald Trump is seen as a viable candidate for POTUS than I am about the scenario you are concerned about.

    Roberts, Thomas, and Alito aren't going anywhere. Scalia is in his mid-seventies, but would likely have someone wheel his rotting carcass into the chamber rather than let Obama pick his successor. That leaves Kennedy, who might retire, but is a centrist. The rest are liberals so no net gain if Obama replaces them.

    The prospect of a three vote change in the court is fairly remote even with reelection.

    Actually what has me more concerned is the tenor of many .... all of your posts and you've been here as long as ... today???? No, Mr Monroe, I have lots of other real life day-to-day worries than all of the "what if's" you have brought up tonight.

    Yep, exactly those things except without all the capital letters where they don't belong. Your posts strike me as very similar to those out of the blue emails I get from all my friends in Nigeria who ask me to help them with transferring money for them.

    The answer, now that you have been more specific is yes, an Obama stacked SCOTUS does scare the daylights out of me. And yes it is a very valid concern.

    I'm reminded of an old George Carlin line: "In the beginning we had Presidents like Washington, Adams, and Jefferson........lately we have had Nixon, Ford and Carter.....what does this prove??? Darwin was WRONG."

    We could expand the lately portion of that list to include every President since Carter and this statement would still be true.

    A lot can happen between now and Nov. '12. Obozo expects to have a Billion Dollars for his campaign, but as his incompetence becomes more and more obvious with the passage of time his poll numbers are in free fall. >$5/gal gas won't help him. Of course the Dems will accuse the opposition of balancing the budget on the backs of the poor, condemning Grandma to eating cat food, and abandoning THE CHILDREN. If the Republicans cave under the onslaught of calumnies the deficit and debt will continue to grow exponentially until the only answer is hyper-inflation and the dollar becomes essentially worthless. Your life savings won't buy a week's worth of groceries. There is no good foreseeable outcome, but Obozo and Dems suck a lot worse.

    There's a good reason that this situation reminds me of 1920s Germany.. the same people are behind it
