Now that Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, the court's oldest member and leader of its liberal bloc, is officially retiring, President Barack Obama now has his second high court opening to fill.

As Newsmax disclosed in its recent interview with Sen. Chuck Grassley, there was already a unique dynamic going on between the chief executive and the judicial branch of the government.

U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley told Newsmax.TV that he “absolutely agrees” with Chief Justice John Roberts, who said the State of the Union address has deteriorated into a pep rally.

In the exclusive interview, Grassley also said he, like Roberts, doesn’t see the purpose of the Supreme Court justices attending in the future.

Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, slammed President Obama for using the address to criticize the Court for a recent decision on campaign finance.

”I think for the next few years, particularly if Justice Roberts is still chief justice, and he will be unless he passes away I assume, I hope they don’t come. Because they were treated badly by the President of the United States, and the President of the United States ought to be the standard for civility in our political system. “
