SCOTUS, For The Goodwin!

April 16th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

5 IMPORTANT REASONS why liberal SCOTUS candidate Goodwin Liu, current Associate Dean and Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, should replace Justice Stevens:

1. Anthony Kennedy





2. Antonin Scalia





3. Clarence Thomas



4. Samuel Alito





5. John Roberts

    I’m ambivalent about Supreme Court nominees.

    Ideology aside, I’d want a competent and incredibly intelligent legal person who should have some “court experience.” That last part puts a negative light on Goodwin Liu for me. Being an Associate Dean and Professor of Law at UC Berkeley isn’t the same as serving on the bench.

    I’m not doubting his legal prowess or ability as a lawyer though.

    Because the only way lifetime tenure for a Supreme Court Justice is revoked is by death, resignation or conviction from impeachment.

    Damn straight! Pete Session’s questioning of Goodwin Liu was disgusting.

  3. harald hardrada says:

    session’s playing to his base — leading republicans think that as long as the economy falters they can exploit the growing fear of those who see their hold on power slipping away — that’s why republicans are willing to insult anybody who doesn’t fit the tea party profile — republicans & tea partiers make believe they’re separate entities, but they’re both warmongers who are willing to run up federal deficits in order to fight wars everywhere

  4. g says:

    *Goodwin Liu is actually not a candidate for the Supreme Court. He is nominated for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (the 9th circuit being the circuit for the western portion of the U.S. and Liu’s judgeship, if confirmed, would be based in San Francisco.) Obama has not yet formally nominated anyone for Justice Stevens upcoming vacancy.
