Skip to comments.With All Due Respect To Chief Justice Roberts On ObamaCare...
Posted on 06/28/2012 8:18:24 AM PDT by The Looking Spoon
I admit, "respect" is a term used very loosely here.
I was perpetually pessimistic about ObamaCare's reversal...but I wasn't watching the other hand. I would have NEVER guessed who the law's savior would be...
Roberts doesn’t deserve an ounce of respect.
That alone should have disqualified him from consideration. I trust no lawyer or Judge who spent time in an ivy league school.
Not "Famous" But Infamous for this decision.
A Coward of the First order.
P.S. Why would he agree to a Tax anyway!?! Taxes are bad, you think a so called Republican would know That!
So, who was happy or even thrilled when Harriet Myers stepped down as the nominee for the high court and Roberts was announced as the new nominee replacement? Do you still have your glee?
"Hey Justice John, Nancy is really great in bed isn't she, and her pictures of you in bed with her are ready to go on You Tube if you don't vote for us!"
Roberts is an opportunist.
I feel like throwing up.
RESPECT is earned; why is Robert due any?
Once this supply drys up, Walmart will ration butt wipe on Thursdays.
I have BO RESPECT for roberts.
I truly hope that his decision will further damage obama down the road. I will not watch the traitor-n-chief when he pimps out to trumpet his victory.
The only thing that can protect us now is the election, and the Constitution was supposed to prevent our rights being up for grabs with every election cycle.
The only other possibility is that the states that sued nullify the act on their territory and threaten to arrest any Federal official who tries to enforce it.
Make Zero try to send in the army.
The impeachment of the Gang of Five needs to become an election issue.
It’s not the decision I wanted, but their might be an upside.
The court has basically said that if we want freedom, we need to elect people who stand for freedom. The democrats won this battle, but it might put them closer to losing the war.
Who would have though Kennedy would have the best dissent too!
you know what is so excruciatingly infuriating is that the news stories all said how Roberts was trying to enhance his reputation by not having 5-4 decisions.
I meant NO respect.
It is no longer government “by the people for the people”, it is government by the gov for the gov. This is a travesty. Roberts is a traitorous jackass!
and to think that we thought Kennedy was the one to worry about.
Now where are the idiots who claimed Roberts traded his "wrong" vote on SB1070 for someone else's "right" vote on this?
Not much associated with the Bush family is.
Roberts called Obama a liar.
Obama repeatedly insisted the mandate was not a tax. Roberts says, oh yes it is.
Congress can impose taxes. Congress can also repeal them. We elect congress.
Roberts also essentially said Congress and the President are free to pass stupid laws. Money quote from his opinion:
We do not consider whether the Act embodies sound policies. That judgment is entrusted to the Nations elected leaders. We ask only whether Congress has the power under the Constitution to enact the challenged provisions.
The war of Slavery vs Liberty.
Yet they are back and have taken another major step towards Tyranny (with them in charge of course)
What will it take to win this war? Will it be as terrible as the last one?
There can be no respect for a creature who has betrayed everything he ever said he believed it. He has lied to and misled the public and has helped to effectively destroy his freedom for the the millions of people in this country.
What he has done will ultimately lead to the death or loss of employment for may Americans. He has destroyed lives and dreams and made a slave nation of America. He should stop to remember he claims to be a straight white Christian man.
There will be blood in the streets before this is all over. Our children will grow up to despise us for allowing their futures to be destoyed.
You know, I don’t think roberts is worried about his reputation, he has a job for life (unfortunatelt).
I am wondering if they gave obama this because the Holder situation. Can’t hit obama twice, so give him one and hit him with the other. JW
From what I heard earlier, Justice Kennedy voted that the entire ObamaCare law was unconstitutional. And traitor Roberts sided with the socialists. Unbelievable.
There are some positives.
1) It is not authorized by the commerce clause.
2) It is not authorized by the necessary & proper clause.
3) It is a tax, which means it was a tax increase, which means it was the biggest tax increase in the history of the US.
Today’s decision is an abomination. Once again, we move into a “what was wrong is now right” phase in America.
After Roberts’ Arizona decision this is pretty much what I expected. Roberts is glorying in his new role as Earl Warren Redux. It begs the question: did Bush know this would be the result of his pick? Was it a deal? Constitutional rulings for just so long then Communist State full speed ahead?
From my perspective, with NO respect to that RAT bastard traitor & betrayer John Roberts......
What a sad day & travesty for Amerika. Finally we also have something (well actually more than one thing) that we can blame GW Bush for. The Bush legacy of betraying Amerika lives on.
His "stellar" Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts betrays Amerika for the 2nd time this week, and votes in favor of 0bamaCare, 5-4 decision. This time, it wasn't Anthony Kennedy with the swing vote, it was traitor & capitulator John Roberts.
Earlier this week, he betrayed AZ to enforce the law against illegals invading our country, mostly through AZ, since 0dumb0's immigration dept won't accept any illegals picked up by AZ law enforcement anyway.
Thank you RAT bastard GW Bush and RAT bastard traitor John Roberts.
John Roberts has now secured his position as the new darling of 0bama & the left, thereby ensuring that the left & media will now gush over Roberts, and he will be able to maintain his social status among socialist elitist Washington DC social scene.
I predict this will increasingly be Roberts's new role, as the latest "supposed" conservative to actually flip over and reveal his true leftist ideology, and will become the new Earl Warren of the Supreme Court.
God help us and our nation, although the left seems to win 98% of the battles. The 2% that we win, usually get snarled up in court challenges.
Isaiah 5. Evil is called good and good is called evil.
F#*KING coward!...NO wonder they left the ruling for the last day of court duty!! He probably skiddle outta town quick!! We need to run up a protest at his home!! Weren’t the majority of 70+ Americans against this bill? I’m so pissed I’m seeing red!!!
There just might be.
AND NEITHER DOES THAT DAMN RINO MORON WHO APPOINTED HIM.
And NO - I DON'T Miss George Bush II NOW or even his damn father!
They helped set the stage for everything this bastard in the White House is doing and as such are complicit in the destruction of America.
Damn the name of George Bush and to think that idiot moron tried to slip in ANOTHER ringer HARRIET MIERS - his Personal Attorney.
Three domestic enemies of these United States.
Three architects of tyranny.
I hope Roberts loses all respect from the dissenting judges, and I wonder just what motivated him to submit to this travesty.
Not suggesting she would have been. But there was great glee with her stepping aside and Roberts being the nominee. He was to be indicative of a further shift to the right of the court since initially he was to replace Sandra Day O'Conner. He was seen as a seismic right shift.
The only upside is it might make Obamacare an issue in the election and help defeawt Obama.
Wwe have ANOTHER RINO in the White House to appoint ANOTHER Ringer like this bastard ROberts.
Only if the GOP gets solid conservative majorities in COngress will a Romney victory accomplish anything. THEN we can hold Romney’s feet to a slow fire and make sure he stays i line.
But I’m no longer optimistic. I will only feel better if Romney selects a rock-solid conservative to run with him.
Yes, Roberts is sure to be the libs’ favorite Republican (formerly Juan McLame).
You have said it.
We are now a nation of servants to whatever the Government wish to do with us.
How long we remain so before the revolution is the question now.
Next up the 2nd Amendment goes bye bye.
Could Roberts have been BLACKMAILED?? His two ADOPTED children came from Ireland VIA LATIN AMERICA.......Legally??? hmmmmmmm
Right now the entire Supreme Court has atttended either harvard (6)or yale(3).
Question from final exams: When is a mandate not a mandate? Answer: When you call it a tax.
He voted for SB1070 because of his children also, I believe.
John Roberts is a traitor to America, and this dirty b*stard’s decision will throw millions out of work, and will cause millions more to lose their good insurance. Businesses teetering on the edge are assured of bankruptcy. Bob
I don’t give a damn. This waste of a black robe has thrown America down the sewer instead of standing up for the Constitution. Bob
We were flim-flammed.
Bush II knew what he was doing. He wanted to balance out Alitto with somebody his globalist Bilderberger Council on Foreign relations RINO buddies would be happy with. And he ulimtately did.
Miers would have been no better or worse than this back-stabbing Rino bastard Roberts.
