A better question is what Supreme Court justices are retromingent? I nominate Thomas, Scalia, Roberts and Alito.

Radley (prior post), you're probably a liberal who uses name calling (in this case retromingent, not sure how that got past the moderators) as a source of validating your self-righteous worth. Of course, if you hate freedom, you would hate the only conservative justices in a flawed Obama appointed system. Go live with Bloomberg if you aren't already. Of course you won't be able to have sugary drinks, guns for self defense, and you'll pay more in taxes than anyone else to contribute to the "common good". But you won't have to live in fear that conservative justices are retromingent.
Cheers ya bum!
