re: Is a Obama recess appointment of Scalia Replacement to SCOTUS an option? - teke184
Fortas was toxic for a number of reasons but that appointment was going to be a tough nomination regardless of nominee because Earl Warren had pissed in so many peoples' Cheerios due to how activist his court was. LBJ nominating his good buddy who was supposedly leaking court deliberations to him...

re: Is a Obama recess appointment of Scalia Replacement to SCOTUS an option? - teke184
A recess appointment to SCOTUS is not unheard of, though it ended up being a cluster frick in the long term. Earl Warren was a recess appointment by Eisenhower who later got confirmed by the Senate. Warren's court becoming so activist in its decisions lead to enough of a backlash that it ra...

re: Sorry. I Have Another Question - teke184
Kennedy's seat had opened up in 1987 but the protracted search for a justice included Bork (senate rejected in what became known as "borking" a nominee) and Douglas Ginsburg (withdrew). The seat didn't open up in 1988....

re: Sorry. I Have Another Question - teke184
Historical precedent is LBJ in 1968, as he whiffed on a chance to replace Earl Warren as Chief Justice with current associate justice Abe Fortas, a buddy of his. It failed and Nixon got to pick Warren Burger as the next Chief Justice and then forced Fortas out, as he was about to be impeached for...

re: Can Republicans really block Obama’s Supreme Court nomination for a year? Probab - teke184
Not sure is this has been addressed yet, but Earl Warren was a recess appointment to the USSC who was later confirmed. It is an awkward situation to have a recess appointment to the Court but not an unknown one. Of course, that assumes that Congress doesn't intentionally manipulate recesses ...

re: Supreme Court Justice Scalia found dead at Texas ranch - teke184
Earl Warren was a recess appointment to Chief Justice. He was eventually confirmed. That being said, the easy way to get out of such a recess appointment would be to game the system. Either no recesses OR, if there is one and Obama makes appointments, simply hold another recess and reconven...

re: Potential SCOTUS nominees - teke184
Earl Warren left the court in '68, before LBJ could run for a third term, but the position was not filled before Nixon took over. His attempt to appoint his buddy associate justice Abe Fortas backfired and contributed to Fortas leaving the court shortly into Nixon's term....

re: Lindsay Graham just said that the next Pres should choose next Justice - teke184
This is pretty much a lame duck administration. Precedent is there for this, too, as LBJ had a vacancy at the time he left office yet Nixon got to fill it instead. Granted, part of that was likely due to who was on the court and why they left, as it was LBJ's buddy Abe Fortas who was nearly impe...

re: Georgia begins consolidating higher ed institutions--we can too - teke184
Frankly, I think a lot of institutions would rather some of the others wither on the vine than merge. None of the universities would want to merge with Grambling or SUNO, both of which are horribly dysfunctional. And neither LSU nor Southeastern wants anything to do with SUBR....

re: So what exactly has JBE done POSITIVELY so far? - teke184
I think you have it backward... The legislature, Kennedy, and Landry have him by the balls. Landry is already overruling him on cases, Kennedy is telling everyone he is full of shite on cuts, and the legislature has the power to set the budget with minimal interference by him if a coalition builds...
