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.
You must have a desert island someplace.
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.
Wisconsin Paul Ryan ping
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
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.
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
(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.”
