    Roberts, known for his conservative judicial philosophy, has served on the Supreme Court since 2005, having been nominated by President George W. Bush after the death of former Chief William Rehnquist.

    RadarOnline.com has been told that Roberts, 55, could announce his decision at any time.

    The decision paves the way for President Barack Obama to make his second appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court following his first, Sonia Sotomayor.

    IF that is true, this country as we know it, will change drastically, for the worse.

    Just a thought. . . . . Left wing executive branch. Left wing legislative branch. Left wing judicial branch.




    We'd be flying in circles. No right wing to keep stability.:faint:

    Wait! Now he says he's NOT going to resign?!? Man! What a flip-flopper.

    You can't trust a flip-flopper.

    I'm inclined to think it was some left-winger trying to stir things up.
