With any luck, he'll drop dead from some horrible, but FAST illness. What a horrible excuse for a human being he is.

The way he drinks & smokes & eats, it's only a matter of time.

I seriously doubt he'll make it through a 2nd Obama term.

I would really like Scalia (and others) to explain the meaning and purpose of the 9th Amendment. That should be a questioned asked of all during confirmation hearings.

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

"SLAVERY? Come on! For 100 years, it was legal in every state! Let's shackle them back up!!! It's what the Founders wanted and we lock ourselves two hundred years in the past!"

It's a shame that there is no mechanism to remove someone so obviously mentally incompetent.

I'd rather hear Scaliia's tortured interpretatopn of the Ninth Commandment.
