Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committees, Socialist Patrick Leahy, threatened Chief Justice Roberts weeks before the Obamacare case decision is to be made public.

Senator Leahy -

“I trust that he will be a chief justice for all of us and that he has a strong institutional sense of the proper role of the judicial branch,” said Leahy. “The conservative activism of recent years has not been good for the court. Given the ideological challenge to the Affordable Care Act and the extensive, supportive precedent, it would be extraordinary for the Supreme Court not to defer to Congress in this matter that so clearly affects interstate commerce.”

I think Leaky got wind of something he does not like.

I heard Leaky Leahy the commie spewing this commie crap on the boob tube this morning. He should be in prison or at least North Korea or Havana. The boy isn’t an American.

This quote really pissed me off:

“I was struck by how little respect some of the justices showed to Congress, and of how dismissive they were of the months of work in hearings and committee actions and debate of amendments and motions and points of order on the Senate and House floors before the measure was enacted”

I don’t believe they held a single hearing with witnesses on legislation that would upend 1/7 of our economy, and affect the health of every single American.

Good thing Roberts is a tough SOB — he won’t let this mewling piece of lint intimidate him.

Senator Leahy Threatens Justice Roberts In Advance of the Obamacare Decision (May 23, 2012)

Is this the same Senator Leahy who was kicked off the senate intelligence committee for devulging national security details to the media, and who should probably be in a military prison for treason? Figures.

"I think Leaky got wind of something he does not like."

I certainly hope so! (Hussein does have his SC mole, so it's plausible.)

Leahy is a war criminal and has participated in purposeful genocide. His first vote in Congress was to strip the Cambodian army of funds for ammunition ~ whereupon the Khmer Rouge terror gang murdered 2.5 million people.

Justice Roberts had best double the guard if Leahy has been turned loose on him.
