It sure is funny how people act when they do not get their way.
Today, this includes major news publications that have no idea what the centerline even looks like anymore.
In the case of the Washington Post, this would be calling for Democrats to push for term limits for Supreme Court justices now that they have all the power in the government.
Calling for Term Limits
With Donald Trump having been able to appoint three justices in just four years, the overall shape of the court was dramatically changed for decades.
Based on the ages of Trump’s justices, every one of them could be on the bench for the next three decades, possibly longer.
There is no way liberals are going to tolerate that, which is exactly why Joe Biden recently ordered a commission to examine the Supreme Court and make recommendations for change.
On that front, the Washington Post decided to throw in its two cents, calling for 18-year term limits for all justices.
Of course, the publication did this in the interest of every administration being able to appoint justices, you know, just to keep it fair.
WaPo stated that going after term limits rather than packing the court would “drain some of the intensity from Supreme Court politics by providing both parties with foreseeable, regular opportunities to nominate justices – thus lowering the stakes of each vacancy.”
Due to the charged political environment, this will not be accepted by the right in any way, shape, or form.
These arguments were not being made when Bill Clinton was in office and they surely were not being made when Barack Obama was in office.
This is solely because Democrats are upset that Trump got to name three justices and because Stephen Breyer does not want to step down so Biden can name his replacement.
This is sour grapes… nothing more.
