Justice Ginsburg laments partisanship in speech at Stanford
SUDHIN THANAWALA,Associated Press 23 hours ago


STANFORD, Calif. (AP) U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg lamented partisanship in Congress during a talk at Stanford University on Monday and said she hoped it would return to an era when "it was working for the good of the country and not just along party lines."

Ginsburg did not address the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court seat vacated by the late Justice Antonin Scalia or President Donald Trump's travel ban, which could end up before the high court. But she did say she would like to change the Electoral College, a comment that drew applause from the packed church. She did not elaborate.

Ginsburg said during the presidential campaign that she presumed Democrat Hillary Clinton would win and have the opportunity to make a few appointments to the court.

She said at the time she did not want to think about the possibility of a Trump victory, calling Trump in one interview a "faker" who "really has an ego."

She later apologized and said her remarks were ill-advised.

Ginsburg recalled Monday that she received bipartisan support for her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, saying Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch was her most ardent supporter.

"I think today he wouldn't touch me with a 10-foot pole," she joked.


The 83-year-old justice offered personal reflections at a discussion billed as an exploration of what it means to lead a meaningful life.

Ginsburg's talk came after Trump last week nominated Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. The nomination would likely restore the court's conservative tilt.

Ginsburg is the leader of the court's liberal wing. She is also the oldest justice on the court and has survived pancreatic and colon cancer, creating anxiety among liberals about her health and the future of their causes if Trump gets an opportunity to replace her or any of the other liberal judges on the bench.

Ginsburg supporters have joked about steps she could take to stay healthy such as eating more kale. Asked by a Stanford student who else should eat more kale in Washington, D.C., the justice quipped, "Justice Kennedy." Anthony Kennedy, 80, is the second oldest justice on the Supreme Court and is considered a swing vote.

Ginsburg has shown no signs of slowing down and has said she has a personal trainer who leads her through hourlong workouts that include pushups and weights. She said family plays a large part in her life, and she doesn't admit defeat.

"The attitude is I'm going to surmount this whatever it is," she said.

^^^^^^ This stinking leftist lying hypocrite now has the audacity to lament partisanship!!!!!!
Something she has rabidly engaged in since her first day as a SCOTUS judge.
And now that Trump wins, she issues some half-ass apology and speaks as if she is an innocent lamb, far above the fray and we peons in this nation.
I say, Yea witch , Hatch should have his ass stomped for ever being stupid enough to support such LYING,TREACHEROUS, DISHONORABLE CREATURE AS YOU.

Yet we see yet time and again, dumb-ass Republicans reaching over to prove they are fair and balanced-supporting pieces of leftist/dem shit as you and getting the same disappointing and tragic thing every time in return.
That is, even more rabid insane, dishonorable and treacherous actions from you leftist trash..
Best thing for this nation , is if Trump gets to replace your totally worthless sorry ass, IMHO.
I'd spit on you if ever we met face to face.. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
You, Kagan, Sotomayor, are all dishonorable pieces of filthy shit..
Not a damn one of you worthy to hold that exalted position that demands, patriotism, honesty, integrity and honor..-Tyr

Honesty. Bipartisanship. Are you kidding me? Only thing I want to hear from her is a retirement date. That would be one decision she made I agreed with.

Ginsburg made a living as the General Counsel for the ACLU, and now she wants to complain about partisanship?! She full of crap! She should be lamenting the partisan SC confirmation votes by Dem Senators - that's what created the mess that she's complaining about now. She should take notice how she passed by a vote of 97-3, and how Kagan and Sotomayer sailed through with easy votes. That's not because they are better nominees than Gorsuch - it's only because Republicans have been much less partisan than Democrats.

Whenever someone like this old windbag complains about partisanship, their really just complaining that anyone out there disagrees with their own partisan viewpoints.
