    The DINO Dems who voted to entrust Bush and Gonzo with further spying should be forced to write this quote on the backboard 1,000 times before they’re allowed to go on vacation.

    Maybe that would wake them up and knock some sense into them.

    She had it right. Before long, Americans will be standing in soup lines.

    I always suspected O’Connor wanted off the SCOTUS after the 2000 presidential election was rigged because she is smart enough to know what was coming.

    From an ideological POV, while O’Connor is a GOPer and was appointed by Reagan, she is also (based on her writings) a Constitutionalist. This alone sets her apart from the wingnuts who dominate the High Court today.

    Good point, Tom339.

    Comparing Sandra Day O’Connor to say, Scalia or Roberts and it seems not only like two different legal philosophies but, two different nations and two different eras in history.

    Yeah, O’Connor is for the Republic, Roberts and Scalia love fascism.

  6. DMason says:

    Blue Arizona – Isn’t O’Connor from Arizona? I think that explains her concept of individual and property rights. The pigs on the SCOTUS today have ties to the globalists. They hate America and Americans.

    I guess I’m in a minority who isn’t willing to gush all over Sandra Day O’Connor’s frock. I recall her saying she wanted to step-down when there was a Republican president in office, guarateeing her replacement would be a social conservative and not a liberal. She had an agenda of her own and she followed it.

    I never liked any of the conservative members of the SCOTUS. O’Connor was marginally superior than Alito and Roberts but only marginally.

    I blame Democrats for voting to approve Bush’s nominees. They’re so spineless to oppose this pathetic exccuse for a leader that they can’t find the strength to say “No.”

    Too bad there isn’t anybody left on the Supreme Court with the wisdom and calibre of O’Connor.
