    Apparently Jeff Toobin of all people says Thomas is the intelluctural leader of the court:



    Then this commentary on the article and where Thomas could lead the court going forward. Very Libertarian in many ways, but very much an originalist.

    The Tenth Amendment:

    So a President Perry appoints a couple (say replace Ginsberg and Kennedy) of Thomas styles justices.....;) Interesting.

    Clarence Thomas a role model for young people all across this country but we never hear much about him in The Democrat Media do we, I wonder if Maxine Waters has ever invited him out to lunch.........:confused:

    Will be unfortunate when he has to recuse himself from this decision/debate as he has an obvious conflict of interest, due to his wife's special interest.

    It does create an appearance of impropriety, which is the standard..

    Clarence Thomas is not an intellectual, he has never since being on the bench asked a question.. and his writings could be that of an astute law clerk..

    Wife has a POV not a special interest how will she materially benefit depending on how he rules?

    Silly .

    BTW Kagan wrote briefs about the legality of Obamacare for the administration I presume she should recuse herself?

    Leaving the plantation is a sin the libs won't forgive.


    It is ironic that Thomas and Rice who came from real poverty and grew up in the J Corw south are reviled while Obama who grew up in the middle class and went to private school is admired ....

    Kagan has said she will recluse herself.. to avoid an appearance of impropriety.

    You do not have to profit financially to have an appearance of impropriety.. but she does benefit financially which is the double whammy...

    The whole premise of this thread that Thomas is some type of great legal mind is false.... he has never asked a question while on the bench. Decisions of a SCOTUS are usually written by a Justice's staff with is direction.

    There is no appearance of anything except Thomas being a great justice.

    Thomas and his wife are entitled to a POV just as Ginsberg has a POV.

    He is guilty of being conservative while black and impropriety in the mind of libs.

    Funny how he is a major intellect on the Court after being derided by libs for 20 years and being called a dunce.

    You have no clue what you are talking about, everything that has been said is a matter of record.. it is not about race... Ginsberg is a justice, her husband is not...

    Epic fail once again, quit while you are ahead...

    There is no evidence that he is a major intellect, as he never says anything and decisions are written by his staff/clerks...

    You are wrong about his wife, she has a right to a life, but does not have a right to influence decisions..

    Thomas will rule on Obamacare and the libs will scream bloody murder when it is declared unconstitutional. Hopefully the tide will be turned on the unlimited extensions of the Commerce clause.


    BTW according to Left leaning law professors who disagree with him there is a big intellect at work, you might try reading the articles and moving beyond your stereotypes of black conservatives.

    Not familiar with the Levin book but will check it out.

    Lazarus, Closed Chambers, is the other one in my cart at Amazon, if anybody has read that and has opinions on it.

    Amen. You'll never see more hatred and venom in the course of public debate than you will see coming from liberals and directed towards women or African-Americans who dare to oppose the radical moonbat policies.

    Don't you know all them uppity women and black folk shore does need to learn their places is to keep they mouths shut and vote straight line democratic?

    I highly suggest you don't. Unless you enjoy reading screeds from someone who makes Sean Hannity look composed.

    One of my daughter in laws is so deeply imbedded in the cesspool of liberal sh!t that she actually said "Clarence Thomas isn't Black"

    It's the world to Deranged Liberal Syndrome: Where Clarence Thomas isn't black, but Bill Clinton is.

    Obviously folks do not understand the whole concept of conflict of interest.. have quoted this source before and will do so again, poor or selective memory I guess..

    The right wants to bring up race, but this has nothing to do with race, it has to do with an appearance of impropriety.. it is what it is, what is expected as a member of the scotus..

    It would have plenty to do with Race if he were a liberal on the plantation and I called him an "ass hole"
