Skip to comments.Matthews Slimes: John Roberts Doesn't Want to be Like Slave Judge Behind Dred Scott
Posted on 06/27/2012 6:07:03 PM PDT by chessplayer
According to liberal MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts being the fifth vote to strike down Obamacare would make him the "second Roger Taney," the Civil War-era high judge who delivered the majority opinion in the Dred Scott Case and upheld the Fugitive Slave Act.
The left is focusing on Roberts - I’d really like to know why.
LOL. Just more desperation from Mr. Tingly.
Anything from two days ago and beyond might be blamed on that inscrutable comment from Rush about Roberts and what to expect from him.
That convinces me that one of the Lefty justices has leaked to the Bobo administration. And it's bad news for Bobo.
Racssssist at the lowest!
What a clown this guy is. I’m surprised he’s employable.
If I'm not mistaken, wasn't Taney a Democrat? As weren't almost ALL of the anti-Negro politicians back then . . . and still today? Maybe Matthews should study a little history before flapping his gums.
How he could possibly equate anything with Roberts to Taney is beyond me.
I think it’s because they already know Roberts has upheld Obamacare (i.e., the death knell of the U.S. as we know it). They are going to boast that all the tough talk these past few days, from Dear Leader on down, is what cowed him into doing “the right thing”.
Mark my words, we’ll hear a bunch of talking heads over the weekend saying something to the effect of “clearly the court heeded the president’s words.”
How he connects the dots between this and slavery is beyond me. But then again, they are playing the skin color card on absolutely everything.
He's been known to take a nip at the juniper berries before the show from time to time.
“According to liberal MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews...”
Stopped right there.
In the real world, he’d be about as employable as Obama.
Neither of them even knows what the real world is.
I heard that as well. But he immediately clammed up. Wonder if Justice Thomas (who officiated at one of Rush's weddings) passed some good info to him.
Chrissy, you don’t even have a law degree, so STFU.
Dear Lord, PLEASE help us save the best medical care system in the world. A lot of it has already been destroyed with overbearing regulations. Please help us rebuild it without losing our medical edge.
they need a fall guy when it gets overturned....hasn’t Roberts battled with obama in the past???
“a friend of mine, who is a fellow Roman Catholic said, he does want to be the second Roger Taney. Roger Taney, of course, was a Roman Catholic who upheld the Fugitive Slave Law back before the Civil War and was villainized throughout history because of that.”
i guess Sissy’s friend isn’t a real good Catholic considering the Church is taking obamacare to court and outwardly protesting obamacare...
Is Matty Cake’s little show? what they call a loss leader?
Lots of short term drama but within a year ObamaCare is simply replaced by some form of RomneyCare. Probably a slight improvement over ObamaCare therefore I will be grateful for any measley crum the DEM-RINOs decide to toss me.
He switched sides to vote with the libs on the AZ Immigration Law, so they see him as a weak link now.
