Thread: Scalia shoud be on Fox News

    Scalia shoud be on Fox News

    After listening to Scalia the other night and reading this article it is very hard to have any respect for him as a Judge.


    [QUOTE]Conservative Justice Antonin Scalia suggested on Wednesday that the Supreme Court could strike the "Cornhusker Kickback" from President Barack Obama's landmark health care overhaul without having to invalidate the whole law. He was right, in a way: The notorious provision isn't in the law.
    The "Cornhusker Kickback" was the derogatory nickname of one of several sweetheart deals designed to ensure that the law had enough votes to pass. Amid a public uproar, lawmakers ultimately stripped the measure from the law.
    But no one—not Scalia's eight colleagues on the highest court in the land, not Deputy Solicitor General Edwin Kneedler, there to represent Obama, and not the superstar lawyer challenging the law on behalf of 26 states, Paul Clement—challenged his claim.[/QUOTE]

    And you say that as, what? An expert political commentator on a Jets fan web site?

    Another example.


    [QUOTE]The most extreme view was that of Justice Antonin Scalia: “My approach would be to say that if you take the heart out of this statute, the statute’s gone.” But that approach runs into the obvious difficulty that this huge bill contains provisions that have nothing to do with the mandate, such as improvements in Native American healthcare and the extension of benefits for black-lung victims. Pulling apart the obviously irrelevant bits is a huge task. Justice Stephen Breyer asked, “What do you propose that we do other than spend a year reading all this?” Even Scalia got a laugh when he asked, “You really want us to go through these 2,700 pages?”[/QUOTE]

    That just speaks to the absolute cluster-**** that was a product of Congress and Obama's poor leadership on the bill. Honestly, the whole thing probably should be junked and rewritten.

    You disagree therefore he should be removed from his position.

    That's correct. A seasoned veteran of the JI politics forum.

    I have more respect for Fox than I do for NBC or CNN. At least Fox doesn't pretend to be down the middle while spreading its political agenda.

    Ideology aside, Scalia is highly regarded as a jurist and intellectual in the legal community. And if it was so well known that the kickback was not in the bill one of the dem appointees would certainly have seized the opportunity to correct him.

    But that seems to be an on-going theme with him, his ideology has been a constant during these hearings.

    In no way am I saying he is not qualified.

    No. He doesn't do that.

    That's crazy. I don't agree with half of what he writes (his opinion in Lawrence was wrong on every level, IMO) but he is a brilliant jurist.

    Not really, no. Ideological differences aside, the Supremes have remarkable respect for each other and believe strongly in collegiality.
