Liberal scumbag David Souter is rumored to be retiring from Supreme Court

David Souter was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush. He was alleged to be a conservative by then Chief of Staff John Sununu. After his appointment, Souter was quickly seduced by the left wing of the court and he never looked back. He has become one of the most liberal and despised members ever to wear the black robes of a Supreme Court Justice. Souter supports the right of the government to seize peoples property(eminent domain) even when the use is for a nonpublic project such as a shopping center or football stadium. This spawned a failed movement to have his house in Connecticut seized under eminent domain and turned into a hotel.Fox News is reporting:
Supreme Court Justice David Souter has reportedly decided to retire from the Supreme Court, a move that will provide President Barack Obama his first opportunity to nominate someone to the nation's highest court.

The White House has been told that Souter will retire in June, when the court finishes its work for the summer, a source familiar with his plans said Thursday night. He almost certainly would remain on the bench until a successor is confirmed.

FOX News has not independently confirmed the report. The source spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak for Souter.

Obama better start now if he wants the IRS to be able to reject his first dozen choices for the seat before it is vacant.

LOL. If they paid all their taxes he will probably disqualify them.

According to Robert Novak, George H. W. Bush knew that Souter was a liberal. Souter was an unknown, so he got confirmed pretty quickly. It's understandable in the aftermath of the circus that it took to get Clarence Thomas confirmed, but it shows that Bush had no real affection for conservatives that he would nominate someone who he knew was so anathema to his base.
