Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't want a Supreme Court that's "deferent" to the executive branch, thankyouverymuch.  The whole point of the checks-and-balances system is not to be deferent.

If you wanted checks and balances, you wouldn't have system of political patronage underpinning the appointments system. The USSC are political appointments and are chosen for ideological conformity. Only the democrats have been dumb enough to try to be bipartizan, the rethugs understand the game and play to win.

keep to the Fen Causeway
