It’s “nuts,” life time tenure for the federal judiciary but not the president!

In a Jan.13 opinion column, entitled “Roots grow deeper on the Supreme Court,” about the life tenure of Supreme Court justices, Tony Mauro said, “To a growing number of legal scholars, the trend toward longer-serving justices has resulted in an increasingly unaccountable Supreme Court.” To that an Ole Seagull would say, “Amen” and add “Ditto for the entire federal judiciary.” Isn’t it amazing, the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides for the removal of the president if “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office” but there is no similar provision for the Supreme Court or other federal judges?
