Do we really need to send a thank you emails to Chief Justice Roberts?

Posted on 06/30/2012 11:42:56 PM PDT by trekdown

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll:
" more than half of all registered voters - 53 percent - said they were more likely to vote for their member of Congress if he were running on a platform of repealing the law, up from 46 percent before the ruling."

Ruling ups support for Obama healthcare, still unpopular By Patricia Zengerle. Reuters, Jul 1, 2012
_____________

"Before you look to do harm to Chief Justice Roberts or his family, it’s important that you think carefully about the meaning – the true nature — of his ruling on Obama-care. The Left will shout that they won, that Obama-care was upheld and all the rest. Let them".
Why Chief Justice Roberts Made the Right Long-Term Decision With ObamaCare by Bert Atkinson Jr. IJReview.com, June 28, 2012 3:59 pm .

Justice Roberts -- savvy person or odd duck?
By Michael Goodwin. New York Post, June 29, 2012
____________
"There is speculation that Roberts ruled this way in order to help conservatives strategically, to leave Obamacare hanging around Obama's neck for the upcoming election. By asserting that Obamacare is funded by taxes, it now becomes just another tax increase that the Democrats will have to defend. If it is a tax, it may be the biggest tax increase in history. "

Thank you, SCOTUS. This Obamacare ruling fires up the troops as America’s eyes are opened! Thank God

If Republicans take the entire Congress and the Presidency and repeal the bill in it's entirety, I'll send him flowers for limiting the commerce clause while we got rid of Obamacare.

Otherwise, No.

But even then we’d be stuck with them being able to tax anything we ***don’t do*** for any reason.

A little overweight? Tax.
Refuse to have your kids vaccinated in case of Autism? Tax.
Don’t like vegetables? Tax.
Drive an old car? Tax.
Don’t have energy-efficient appliances? Tax.
Own a gun? TAX TAX TAX.

The list is endless.

In the short term, yes, but eventually the Dems will be back in power. Can you imagine what they’ll do if they ever get the White House, House and Senate at the same time?

If this gets us to a 60 Seat Majority in the Senate, then I will thank him, but not before.

Let me add to your thought:

If this gets us to large enough majority in the Senate to impeach him, then I will thank him, but not before.

No because now we know after all this effort and time we have a GD moderate court balance and a wishy washy chief justice

This a far bigger tragedy than just national healthcare debacle

Lifespans and numbers are now more loaded to their side than we thought before

Scalia and Kennedy are old.....

And there is never any doubt how the left wing ladies will vote

All for growing govt and ends justify means.....

This mistake will take decades to fix no matter November unless we win in the randomness of who dies first

The beltway ruins good men and women

Move SCOTUS to middle America..

If the Reuters poll provides us with accurate results, and 53 percent of voters will prefer the Republican candidates, I will agree with Sarah Palin: Thank you, SCOTUS.

Unfortunately nobody knows how to do it, because the scotus judges are human beings too. Two of them - Anthony Kennedy & John Roberts - have broken by the constantly growing pressure from the left media...

Yes! We do. And thank you so much for reminding me before I forgot.

Dear Justice (heehee, Good One!) Roberts,

Many years ago, when my womanizing, worthless douchebag grandfather, William O. Douglas, was on his deathbed, he expressed to me a very great fear that the idiotic gibberish that he had written about "penumbras" and "emanations" for the majority opinion in Griswold vs. Connecticut would almost certainly stand as the most inane drivel ever written by a Supreme Court Justice.

Though it was quite difficult to assure him with a straight face -- even on that very solemn occasion -- that someone would certainly come along someday and write something even stupider given the rapidly deteriorating quality of the Harvard Law School, I must confess that none of the assembled witnesses on that day held out much hope.

So, please let me offer you a most sincere and heartfelt thanks on behalf of our entire deeply grateful family: Your opinion in the ACA ruling is truly a new low in terms of bad logic, inconsistency, silliness and -- let's face it, because there's no sense in sugar-coating it -- outright crap.

Thanks to you, my grandfather won't go down in history as the biggest dumb-ass in the history of American Jurisprudence.

Thanks Again, William O. Douglas's grandson Bobby "Big Dee" Douglas.

No idea who this "Bert Atkinson Jr" is, but the world inside his mind must be awfully messed up if he thinks voicing disgust, disappointment and disagreement with Roberts ruling indicates an intent to "do harm" to anyone.

Atkinson should get his @$$ whipped just for mentioning it!
(For the denser among you, that's a joke folks)

Exactly. Elitists like Roberts and their families will always have the cadillac-quality health care package. As such, the treatment he gets for his seizure disorder will be the top of the line, with the finest of medications and therapies. He`s not concerned about the lowly serfs having to scrape for the leftovers.

And...

1. If you haven`t attended a class on Constitution 101, TAX
2. If you don`t own a gun (when you`re legally able to), TAX
3. If you`re among the 49.5% who aren`t paying federal income taxes, TAX

I think the Roberts ruling was a strike of genius. Hes put it back in our hands. He’s called the democrats outfor what they pulled. Its our responsibilty to defeat this.

Roberts’ immediate family will do fine piggybacking on his power and influence, but his grand and great grandchildren won’t be as fortunate. Serfdom is their future as well.

1. Gain all three branches

2. Repeal ACA before freshmen are tainted by Beltway

3. Constitutional amendment clarifying enumerated powers of Congress to tax.

4. Then, and only then, flowers to Mr. Justice Roberts.

Nope. He is unworthy of any communication from me, because he sold his country out to socialism when it mattered.

I agree.

Keep in mind that just all of us here saw thru the Obamacare ruse. Had the SCOTUS struck it down it would have been a great campaign issue for Obama and rallied his people and probably some independents as well as he would be harping about how partisan and unfair the SCOTUS is.

Roberts, is obviously, a very very very smart man. Rush and Levin and the rest of them can gnash their gums all they want, but in the end this will bring more people voting republican than ever before.

It has rallied all of us. Now we’re down right scared about this guy and him minions controlling matters.

Obama ran on a platform to nationalize health care. He won, with a majority in house and senate who quikly passed the laws for him. For the SCOTUS to strike that down when the PEOPLE have spoken would have looks basically as the liberals would say it did...A bunch white people judging the rest of us.

No, each day you’ll see, Roberts did us a huge favor. Brilliant move. He rope a doped the rest of them on the SCOTUS at the same time.

I'll send him flowers for limiting the commerce clause while we got rid of Obamacare.

I strongly suggest you go back and listen to Mark Levin's show from last Thur and Friday.

Levin is a brilliant Constitutional scholar.

On Friday he specifically address the Commerce Clause issue. Levin clearly explained that this ruling does not put any limits at all on issues concerning the CC.

Robert's ruling is absolutely horrible -- there is no silver lining whatsoever.

I like what Roberts did. It was very crafty— a great strategic move in the game of chess that is the Presidential Election of 2012.

For a century, Americans have know the Democrats as the “Tax and Spend” Party. The Obama gang hoodwinked an ignorant poulace in 2008 with the slogan “Hope and Change”.

Now the people know that he meant “Hope for New Taxes and Change the Spending Ceiling and the National Debt by Trillions and Trillions of Dollars.”

Roberts was right: Obamacare is a New Tax on EVERYONE, not just on “millionaires and billionaires.”

Mitt Romney should hang this albatross aroung Obama’s neck at every single campaign stop during the next four months.

Have more than one kid, thereby putting a strain on the free services offered to the citizens? Tax...of appx. the estimated cost of the government supporting said additional child until age 26.

Or you can have the FREE abortion. Not to far away from China...are we...
