Skip to comments.NPR Brings on CNN's Toobin to Say Obama's a Conservative, John Roberts Favors Radical Change
Posted on 09/18/2012 8:56:04 AM PDT by Olog-hai
NPRs Terry Gross brought on CNN judicial analyst Jeffrey Toobin on Monday to discuss his new book on the Supreme Court (called The Oath) for 44 minutes of her program Fresh Air. Toobin proclaimed that Barack Obama is the conservative when it comes to the Supreme Court, and John Roberts is the radical revolutionary. This is the same Toobin who complained overturning ObamaCare would be "judicial activism."
Toobin also claimed with a straight face (or at least an ungiggly voice) that Roberts voted to uphold ObamaCare to pave the way for more conservative decisions, to insulate the court from being found as political in the futureas if liberals won't denounce every conservative decision as political. Toobin also continued his tradition of bashing Clarence Thomas as "way out there" on the right-wing fringes.

To paraphrase Lenin, the lib media provides their members with free rope.
This is so discouraging; that average citizen is so used to this and isn’t critical of it.
The media is using the media to establish their own interpretation.
Did Rather ever interview Koppel on the CBS Evening News?
Did David Brinkley interview Cronkite on NBC News?
doooooood step away from the crack pipe!
which supreme court justice said toobin was an idiot?
seriously, you know Toobin is going to report something wrong by the fact he is on the air. He has not legitimacy or gravitas.
I heard some of that...yeah I know...but Hannity can drone on and on saying the same thing.
Toobin is an idiot. His entire schtick was Orwellian. Up is down and down is up. What a liar.
When did Toobin start being a schmuck like this? He used not, iirc, to be a jerk -- who grabbed his chain? Is he gay or something? The bad guys love to jerk around nominal conservatives who are found out to be gay -- David Brock, Exhibit A, who now jangles his chains deep in the dungeon of Media Matters.
100% grade A commie propaganda
Toobin is evidently confused.
Modern Liberals are Reactionaries.
So in a way........
I don’t know but I further read the article from drudge this am about Scalia[from Toobin’s book] and wondered who the heck he was talking about? It was revisionist in the extreme, imho.
The Democratic Party is not an independent political force.
The Democratic Party is simply the political wing of the much more powerful - and brilliantly decentralized - MSM.
Until Conservatives embrace that reality, we cannot have a serious election strategy or a serious governance strategy.
Roberts was either bribed or blackmailed (e.g his family was threatened). IMO.
You could pick a guy off a bus in Philly....who would give you most of everything that Toobin would say. Why they pay this guy big bucks to be some on-the-air analyst amazes me.
