    Liberals Blast Breyer’s ‘Ego’ as He Balks at Retirement Pressure

    Liberal frustration with Justice Stephen Breyer grew on Thursday, following a CNN report in which the soon-to-be 83-year-old justice said he hasn’t decided yet whether to retire.“This new report suggests Justice Breyer’s desire to stay is based less on a high-minded notion that he might somehow preserve the Court’s reputation for independence, and more on the fact that he finds it personally fulfilling to get the chance to serve in the role of the Court’s senior liberal,” advocacy group Demand Justice’s executive director Brian Fallon said on Thursday. “In other words, this is about ego.”Breyer told CNN’s Joan Biskupic that two factors will be overriding in his retirement decision: “Primarily, of course, health. Second, the court.” Biskupic reported that Breyer enjoys being the senior Democratic appointee. That designation previously belonged to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in 2020 after bucking calls to retire during President Barack Obama’s tenure and was replaced by Donald Trump appointee Amy Coney Barrett.* * *

    Sounds to me like they're growing increasingly afraid that they'll lose the Senate in 2022, and thereafter will not be able to ram through a replacement for Breyer unless he goes now.

    If I were Justice Breyer, I'd start beefing up my personal security detail, and maybe hire a personal food taster.

    Proggies are worried about the 2022 Senate elections and the 2024 Presidential election. RBG tried to outlast Trump and failed, and Proggies are worried something similar might happen with Breyer.
    Populists' Big Guys vs. Little Guys rhetoric is emotive rationalization about who plunders and who is plundered.

    Never under estimate the ignorance of the low information voter or the shallowness of the Yellow Dog Democrat. Every media source, from radio, tv, movies, newspapers to college campuses are all shills for the Democrat Party portraying all non liberal democrats as Nazi's or worse. I think it won't be long before you will not be able to keep your job unless you are registered Democrat
    I am not joe biden and I both understand and approve this message

    It would be funny as hell if the House resorted to impeaching Breyer just to create a vacancy on the bench.

    He will likely have an accident in the near future. Accidentally fall asleep with a pillow over his face? Dems are that desperate.
