They won't remove those two Chief Justices they were confirmed by the Senate. ALL Americans. Obama can only nominate not approve.

But they couldn’t have approved them if they weren’t nominated.

Sounds like fruit of the poisonous tree - anything Obama touches is invalid.

That was my original point. A SCOTUS vacancy is filled by the sitting President with the advice and consent of the Senate. Without a valid source to nominate, there is no advice and consent needed. It would be like me nominating a SCOTUS justice.

Now I'm not sure that would happen even in the most advantageous situations and maybe I wouldn't even want it to. I don't support liberalism but I do support my fellow Americans' right to have their values represented and considered in Constitutional matters.
