I started to bring this up in the Obamacare thread, but think it needs it's own thread.
Which Justices over the last 50 years do you think have been the biggest disappointment to the President and Party that placed them on the bench and why?
I dont think Roberts should make the list, in spite of the timing. His deference to the powers of the Executive and Congress is not new.
I think the Obvious choice for the right would be Souter. An absolute Liberal Justice appointed by a Republican.
Has there been a similar Justice from the left?
