CURL: Roberts to the rescue for Romney
The Washington Times ^ | 6/28/2012 | Joseph Curl

Posted on 06/28/2012 2:48:31 PM PDT by nerdgirl

Those contemptuous epithets and more were hurled by Republicans and conservatives at Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. moments after he single-handedly saved Obamacare, joining liberals on the bench to break a 4-4 tie.

The Supreme Court has abandoned us,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry declared. “Simply disappointing,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott moaned. “Activist court,” Rep. Michele Bachmann cried.

Even Ari Fleischer, the former spokesman for George W. Bush, who appointed Chief Justice Roberts to the court, joined in. “I miss Justice Harriet Miers,” he whined.

But they all miss the point, and, more, by looking purely at the political, miss the forest for the trees.

Hmmmm...

Still just not sure what I think today, but to demonize Roberts is both pointless and possibly off the mark.

Time will tell us if what he's done here is awful or not.

After rewriting ObamaCare to RobertsCare, I think it is still ZerOcare.

Instead of clarifying health care, he has made it a muddle. How does this law not become a bill of attainer?

That’s not a bad approach. I woke my poor husband up at 6:15am with “they struck it down!!” - only to sheepishly return a bit later with “no they didn’t.” At that moment I did think Roberts was as big a dog as most of the posters today...

But you have to let reason in, and ask yourself “why the hell would he have done that?” - and calling him some yellow belly communist, as some here have done, is immature and intellectually shallow. John Roberts is NOT a liberal. He may not be as conservative as some of us hoped/thought, but he has been a very solid conservative vote on the court. You can’t argue with that just because he’s not voted with Scalia 100% of the time. He’s not some social liberal either. There is an explanation out there for why he ruled as he did, we just aren’t sure of it yet.

Ah except the know it all name callers, who in fact surely must have his number already.

And for those pining away for Harriet Miers, refer to the intellectually shallow comment above.

“But Justice Roberts did just the opposite (and, bonus, also strictly adhere to the original intent of the Constitution)”

I found that passage particularly troubling. I get what the author is trying to say, but adhering to the Constitution isn’t supposed to be a “bonus”, it is supposed to be a Justice’s raison d’etre.

All that said, I do agree that the best course of action now is to make the best of the hand that has been dealt to us. The ruling breaks my heart, but it has been made. Now we take what we can use from it to defeat Obama in November.

I was moaning about this this morning and a Conservative friend of mine told me that as much as it upset him too, Roberts went by the “Law”. He did not explain to me exactly what law though. Could this be true that even though we all think the thing stinks, that Roberts did go by the actual law???

Yeah, but how does one explain (or justify) his joining the FAR Left Wing of the Court in ruling against Arizona as well as striking down the "Stolen Valor Act?"

That's 3 and 0 in one week.

Methinks I agree with Rush as what we may be witnessing is this ASSHAT beginning to work on his "Legacy" much as Warren did and so far, that does not augur well for us Cons.

Roberts does deserve our derision and disgust. He drove a stake through the heart of our freedom.

He has provided all the democrats who voted for this bill and Obama political cover and a path to re-election.

Every democrat can run around claiming “YOU SEE, We said it wasn’t a tax. The conservative republican supreme court made it a tax. Not we democrats. The Republicans passed this tax”

And there are enough stupid people that are going to believe this.

I wish everyone would calm down. This is the biggest rallying cry for our party since 1994, when they tried to pass healthcare reform and you remember what happened in 1994. They lied, we now can call it what it is, the largest tax increase in the history of the Country, and take the whole shebang...White House, Senate and the House. Instead of the Dems running against the conservative SCOTUS, it’s all going to be about them. Now we have to stop whining and do our job of getting people out to vote, which got much easier today. Remember why we won so much in 2010? This election is going to forever change this Country.. I am positive it is going to go our way. Let’s get to work.

In honest fact and whether we like it or not, Hildy, we don’t really have much choice but to take this and turn it against Obama and the Democrats ... and hard. Stoke the anger into a white hot coal and channel it into a Congress and White House that can and will overturn it (and turn the tide on the USSC while they’re at it). Elections still count when it comes to Congress, the White House, the States, and taxation.

Don't buy that spin that it is about a tax. BS. This fundamentally changes the relationship between government and the individual(justice Kennedy said this not Roberts the socialist). Now the government has the unlimited power to force us to buy anything they want or the IRS (the new Gestapo) will come after you. This is the beginning of the end of freedom. We are now technically slaves

This liberal POS Roberts just gave the liberals the way to control us , just call every mandate a tax.

This wasn’t just a tax, it was a mandate, the government forcing us to buy something. This is the end of freedom.That is unconstitutional so Roberts rewrites the law to make it a tax so he can vote for it. that is impeachable because these justices can’t rewrite laws all they can say is yes or no. This is the end of freedom not about just a tax( which is bad enough anyway).

This is the end of liberty, the end of freedom. The federal government now has unlimited power to force anyone of us to buy anything not to mention that with this Obamacare they can control every part of our lives now

Negatory. The talking point for November will be that it is not Obama’s tax, it’s republican Roberts on the Supreme Court who turned this into the largest tax increase in world history. And they, along with the media, will most definitely make it stick.

Hey nerdgirl

I was pretty angry at Mr. Roberts earlier. Even thought he was a traitor.

But I've been taking a long hard look at what he did, and have changed my mind.

In fact, I'm going to go so far as to apologize to him now publicly.

There's something else going on.

...and that's all I have to say about that :)

It wasn’t a tax until Republican Roberts made it a tax. Poor Obama, he’s just trying to help but the evil repuglican Roberts, protecting his buddies I’m BigPharma and the evil insurance companies, made sure that working class Americans get the bill.

That’s the media talking point and if you don’t think that will stick, you’re dreaming.

We need to stop this delusional search for the pony in the pile of crap and face reality.

Pretty simple. It would have been a 5-4 decision reversing the biggest progressive coup of the last century. Even more controversial than Bush v. Gore. Roberts cares more about the prestige of the Court than he does about the Constitution. The Court’s prestige is not unimportant; but if it punts every time things get rough, judicial review is meaningless.

It’s funny how Roberts justified his vote for Obamacare by claiming it was a tax, when Obama himself obviously made no such argument when he campaigned for its passage. It’s like the five justices were bending over backwards to look for an excuse to let this law stand.

And all of this is to help Romney? Really?

Sorry. The Chief Justice lost his guts. The law was toast, and one person, the Chief Justice, created an outrageous loophole for a decadent Congress to sell our liberties to their friends. It's Dred Scott.

The chattering class very much wants to find the sunshine and flowers in this "learning moment." Tyranny moves fast.

One slim day, the first Tuesday in November, separates us from a shooting war. There are too many of us who will not live as slaves.

Go read the dissenting opinions and you will understand what happened here. roberts deserves to be impeached and he may have delt a lethal blow to the republic. Wait until you or a member of your family is refused healthcare. My mother-in-law’s sister died three weeks ago. The British health care authorities told her at age 72, she did not qualify for the life saving procedure that she needed. She went home and died three weeks later. It is coming here and roberts made it possible.

Hi Sandy,

Just read the dissenting opinions and you will know exactly what to think. There are trustworthy Justices that wrote dissenting opinions and they were there and they are brilliant and they tell us what was wrong with this decision and it is vast and deep.

Maybe Justice Roberts is playing chess, and everybody else is playing checkers. If Obama gets re-elected he could appoint as many as 3 more Supreme Court Justices, which would totally devastate the court for years to come. By doing what he did, two thirds of the voters who are opposed to Obamacare will be energized for the November election, thus virtually guaranteeing Obama’s defeat. Roberts may have put the final nail in the coffin for Obama’s re-election chances.

I certainly like the sound of that, for more reason than one.

I was really disappointed in Roberts today, as I think quite a lot of him in general (despite the disastrous immigration ruling...) - and I had the expectation that he would torch Obamacare today.

But if he helps win the war, this battle won’t matter.

Demonize Roberts?

well why not?

we thought we had a possible 5-4 conservative leaning court if we were lucky

instead we now realize we have a moderate wholly unpredictable out of left field chief justice...which is even worse

damn right I'm pissed

this is the second Bush SCOTUS disappointment

I miss Bill Rehnquist...

it'll take past my lifetime to fix this unless Kennedy and a hard lib or two hard libs pass on

why not be pissed

he drew tax from whole cloth same as the agenda driven libs did

much like Blackmun did in RVW as well..and here we are how many years trying to fix that?

what a damned mess...now Roberts can tinkle Pinots on M street with all the dandies

time won't tell jack about if this is awful...it is..we know it..admit it..if it ain;t awful then you must support national healthcare and I doubt you do

time will only tell if we can overturn a goofy SCOTUS ruling and the biggest legislative measure since the New Deal that was ramrodded down our throats against the wishes of a profound majority and with zero bipartisan support and none of the required congressional hearings and readings they give even for just bridges to nowhere much less something of this magnitude

this is a very big deal hon...it's hugh...and then some...very series

The problem is this. Roberts not only broke and voted with the libs, but most importantly to me (an attorney) used bad reasoning in doing so.

If this was a tax and decided on those grounds, the case shouldn't have been decided and punted back until it was in effect. Also, not only were things redefined, it opens up a whole new can of worms as bad as the commerce clause.

What was proven to me know is that I count on Roberts as much as Kennedy. Maybe less, because Kennedy is more libertarian at times. If we gain one, is Roe V Wade/Doe v Bolton now gone?

women...God love ya’ll but your emotiveness has done little for this nation the past 100 years

we just have to deal with it don’t we?

i mean good lord

what do you want?

forgive Roberts cause he’s cute in a Phil Collins sort of way?

or just be nice for the hell of it?

how did we ever win World War II I have to ask myself at times

hint..back when women voted like their husbands and fathers
