Skip to comments.Scalia Was "Furious" At Roberts Vote On Healthcare Law, Says Toobin Book
Posted on 09/18/2012 8:51:03 AM PDT by Biggirl
Jeffrey Toobin's latest book portrays Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia as increasingly cranky and partisan and infuriated with Chief Justice John Roberts over the court's recent decisions on healthcare and immigration.
Toobin, who writes for The New Yorker and also covers the court for CNN, credits Scalia for a sea change in how both sides of the political spectrum think about the law. But he says the justice's bombast has become off-putting to more even-tempered colleagues.

Scalia should have been chief justice and was never enamored with Roberts.
You said it!
And pray tell, aren’t the Clinton-Obama appointees partisan? When do they ever break with the administration? We are sick of only conservatives being singled out as partisan, a pejorative in today’s media parlance.
Justice Scalia should have been the CJ, he is the one justice I respect the most.
Rightly so. Roberts should have been bitch-slapped back to the stone age. A traitorous act in my opinion
Robert’s ruling is truly one of the most idiotic of all time.
Roberts sold out the Constitution and Americans will suffer.
Scalia and Thomas are my personal favorites.
Thomas is my favorite. I keep meaning to read his autobiography “My Grandfather’s Son”.
I like Thomas because he’s a listener which is exactly why the left calls him an idiot.
Toobin is a thoroughly biased leftist tool. His credibility is worth the value of a fully indoctrinated leftist. So how much is that worth?
I wouldn’t trust anything that stooge writes.
It is perfectly clear from the dissent that Scalia was furious at Roberts. I was too. No matter how much good (if any) Roberts does with the rest of his life, the net effect of him having lived will be to make the lives of our children and grandchildren far worse than if Roberts had never been born. I will never forgive his intentional act of treason against the Constitution of the United States of America.
In other words, Roberts hos put it up to We the People to cleanse the House, Senate and White House.
Like it or not, Freepers should admire the guy.
Justice Thomas is my close second favorite Supreme Court Justice. I have nothing but repsect for a man who was subjected to so much abuse during his confirmation hearings.
Obamacare was written by God only knows. There were no hearings. “Deemed as Passed.” Not a single Senator or Congressman or their staffs even read, let alone understood the bill.
The rats purposely avoided the word “tax.” Roberts added it. He rewrote the law. An illegal act.
Piss on Roberts. History will not treat him well. He deserves every admonition history can dump on him.
There was actually a surprising case where Sotomyar (?!) correctly made a dissent against a 4th Amendment [IIRC] case that would have further erroded that amendment. I don't have the reference but I remember being surprised that I agreed with her.
Given the dictionary definition of keeping things in the same state, Obama has been remarkably conservative on some issues... unfortunately those are things like statist policies and outright corruption.
