If there is an actual good argument against presidential term limits, I might find it in the bizarre scenario where every eight years or so, an entire year of an administration is talked of as though it were some kind of caretaker government and nothing more.

i feel sad for someone's death but I feel ecstatic for the fact that one of my least favorite human being is no more.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Dies

If George Bush was in office and a liberal judge died, would liberals want to block Bush from choosing a new Justice in a lame duck year?

See, the term lame duck isn't actually an official designation. I'm not sure if you realize this.

^that's probably a pretty fair question.

Although I'm not sure Scalia was just some run-of-the-mill conservative. He was a horrible person who negatively impacted many people's lives from what I've read.

Scalia was "originalims" kind of conservative, meaning that he's gonna interpret constitution LITERALLY, just like how it was written in 18th century. that's why he's advocate of states' rights, as constitution w/ amendments states that whatever is not on constitution is up to states to decide. he said that 2nd amendment should be interpreted as literal as possible so he said it's fine for someone to carry a bazooka or rocket launcher if he/she feels like its needed for self defense. as stupid as it sounds, they accept this argument. Originalists also may say that rights for gays and legalization of drugs should be totally up to states, because nobody in 1700s talked about weeds or gays. I personally find it bullshit as constitution, i think, is intentionally written vaguely so that interpretation can be changed according to the later generation. but.......originalism exists and it is (kinda) alive. now one of the advocate is dead......

He's hated by liberals and he's loved by conservatives.

No he's not. He's liked because he did everything to further the far right agenda. You use the word 'values' too often. The man ruled on hatred and agenda, those are not values.

I don't give a shit if it's their last year in office or not. If a justice passes whole they're in office, a president is supposed to be able to nominate a new one.

So, no, I wouldn't support stopping a president from doing their job, regardless of which side of the aisle they reside on.

Because, lame duck isn't an actual thing, so a president doesn't just lose his rights as president, because it's the last year of his term.

As I understood it, a president is only truly a lame duck between the election and inauguration of a new president. Some people may apply the term earlier, but that seems to usually be motivated by political purposes. Until the first Tuesday in November, the president of the US is the president of the US and has been elected to do a job. After this point there is a transition, but until then, they should make the calls they are there to make.

It would be idiotic to alter their decisions nine months out from an election and eleven months out from their departure from office based on possible forecasts of the election result.
