I’ll give you my opinion on Roberts’ decision, and I don’t think any of the talking heads got this right.
I think Roberts is a good GOP-e kind of guy that cares more about their establishment guy getting elected than he does about doing what’s right.
He could have killed ObamaTax. Instead, he turfed it to the election, and he did it so the Tea Party conservatives that cut their teeth on opposing this atrocity would be forced to see the election as a final stand to get rid of it.
And. It worked. There’s a lot of conservatives out there that will now vote for Romney as a last chance to get rid of ObamaTax. To quote my wife, Romney wants to “repeal and replace” ObamaTax, “His idea of replacing it is probably almost as scary as the real thing.”
Roberts took one for the GOP-e team. In real terms, they traded an outright win on gutting ObamaTax for your vote in November and a possible loss.
Your vote for the GOP-e guy was more important to them than getting rid of ObamaTax is. Imagine that.
It’s OK. If they lose, their payback to you is now built into the cake.
I think Roberts is a good GOP-e kind of guy that cares more about their establishment guy getting elected than he does about doing whats right.
That makes him unfit for any office let alone the Supreme Court. The GOP-e is the greatest threat facing America today. Until we defeat them, we’ll never win over the Marxist, new world order types or even the Islamofascists.
