It would have been nice if the Republican Party had given some thought about the outcome of this election, back before they put up their no-contrast opponent, against Obama. This final nail in the socialist coffin these Establishment types constructed for us has Romney's name engraved on it. Now it's suppose to be us rubes, duped and trussed Republican voters who are responsible for bailing them out, to prop up this incubus of Obamacare, Romney? If it weren't so pathetic it would be laughable, because I'm pretty sure we're willing to do it. We're going to shoot ourselves in the other foot....again, in 2012. Except for us 4 percenters who will not cooperate.

I’m not sure who I detest more, Obama or Roberts.

I keep going back on forth on it.

In simple words, he had to disavow the Constitution and give his warning to the republic for which it seems not to stand!

I understand Roberts’ epilepsy medicine has given him brain damage. That would certainly explain his bizarre behavior. Roberts should do the right thing and resign following the November election.

Roberts has lost the trust, respect and fellowship of the three conservatives on the bench and that of moderate Kennedy as well.
The Leftist judges never had any use for the Chief Justice anyway and this shameless big kiss on their nasty socialist fannies is not going to make them loath him any less.

He is gonna be lonely at work and he is too smart to be a gullible dolt like John McCain and believe the Leftist MSM really loves him for being such a treacherous ersatz conservative bastard.

I predict Roberts will resign before the next SCOTUS session. Hopefully Obama won't appoint his successor.

he decided to leave this up to the American people.

Only one problem with this interpretation -- the whole "leave this to the people" argument works just as well the other way. If the SC had declared this law unconstitutional, "the People" could have elected a Congress in November to re-enact it. So I don't buy this excuse for Roberts.

It would appear that Roberts cares more about what the east-coast media say about him than he does upholding the constitution. Either that or he was responding to some threat or perceived threat of which we are ignorant.

Is Roberts missing a cat? Did he get pictures of his kids at play from an anonymous photographer?

It wouldn't take much to scare this pansy.

Where is Roberts every Tuesday night? No exceptions!

Roberts switched views to uphold health care law

By
Jan Crawford

(CBS News) Chief Justice John Roberts initially sided with the Supreme Court’s four conservative justices to strike down the heart of President Obama’s health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, but later changed his position and formed an alliance with liberals to uphold the bulk of the law, according to two sources with specific knowledge of the deliberations.

Roberts then withstood a month-long, desperate campaign to bring him back to his original position, the sources said. Ironically, Justice Anthony Kennedy - believed by many conservatives to be the justice most likely to defect and vote for the law - led the effort to try to bring Roberts back to the fold.

“He was relentless,” one source said of Kennedy’s efforts. “He was very engaged in this.”

But this time, Roberts held firm. And so the conservatives handed him their own message which, as one justice put it, essentially translated into, “You’re on your own.”
