Okay, okay. You’re right. I can’t leave this alone. Chief Justice Roberts is the best politician of all time. Or a liberal mole sitting on the SCOTUS. Perhaps on a fictional planet SCROTUM (Sometimes Courts Rat on the Uninformed Minions)?. Come on… just going for the guffaw! ha ha.
Seriously tho, there’s something so desperately wrong with this Roberts-ruling picture. I venture to guess most Americans think Chief Justice Roberts is conservative. A member of the Washington, D.C. chapter of the conservative Federalist Society. Adviser of then-Governor Jeb Bush with the latter’s actions in the Florida election recount during Bush’s presidential election? Roberts has been portrayed as a consistent advocate for conservative principles by analysts such as Jeffrey Toobin.
Jeffrey Toobin, CNN’s chief legal analyst, heaped praise on Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, whose arguments before the High Court in March he called a “train wreck” and a “plane wreck.” “This is a day for Don Verilli to take an enormous amount of credit and for me to eat a bit of crow,” said Toobin.
Ohh, bullsh*t. I listened to Verrilli’s arguments on CSPAN and he deserves no “enormous amount of credit” for winning this case. Verrilli’s arguments could be interpreted as a “train wreck”. But, in my opinion, all the credit is on Roberts who has shown, without shame, his two-facedness to the American people. This SCOTUS ruling debacle is Roberts’ Clintonesque moment ‘..that depends on what the meaning of is, is.’
Roberts discombobulated opinion (hyperbolic theatrical PuC tradecraft only, *tricksy titters*) ought to be closely scrutinized in public forums, if not for any reason other than ‘for the record’.
An important question, though, is what caused the “very,very conservative” Roberts to suddenly switch sides on this case, immediately prior to announcement? But more precisely, was it triggered by prezdementia’s WARNING (to SCOTUS/Roberts?) the evening before? Hmm, coinkydinky? Not likely.
Lastly, it remains troublesome why Roberts joined the liberal side on two of the most recent important rulings: immigration and obamacare. Sounds like double agent scenario to me, kiddos.
