Skip to comments.Judge Posner: GOP has gone 'goofy' (another republican is slamming us conservatives)
Posted on 07/06/2012 7:33:45 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
A conservative federal judge appointed by Ronald Reagan said in an interview published Thursday that the Republican Party has gone goofy and that these right-wingers who are blasting [Chief Justice John] Roberts are making a very serious mistake.
I mean, what would you do if you were Roberts? Judge Richard Posner, of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, told NPR. All of a sudden you find out that the people that you thought were your friends have turned against you, they despise you, they mistreat you, they leak to the press, what do you do? Do you become more conservative? Or do you say, What am I doing with this crowd of lunatics?

And don't you just love how the progressive journalist starts out the article by citing Reagan?
"That's right, you damn conservatives", says the progressive journalist, "get back onto the GOP plantation!"
How is this for party unity? The republicans don't want party unity with conservatives! The GOP-E is out to defeat us every bit as much as we are out to defeat them!
JUST SAY NO TO THE GOP-ESTABLISHMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What if Roberts had ruled to overturn Obama care? Liberals would be sending death threats and marching on the court. Would Posner bother to condemn them? Frankly I doubt it because such behavior is expected from the true loons on the left.
excuse me? YOU TURNED ON US, then wonder why we turn on you.
Posner is the one who needs to lighten up. Roberts made a very serious error that allowed the communists to tighten the noose around the necks of Americans. There is no getting out of this one. ObamaCare isn’t going to go away. Don’t ever feed the bears.
Posner may be a conservative, but he is a judge before he is a conservative or American. Thou shalt not criticize krytocrat
Delegates to the convention need to ask themselves what they are doing there.
If you have to wonder why you’re a Conservative simply because others in the Conservative movement don’t like you, then you are NO CONSERVATIVE. Conservative is not a team, but ideological movement. If you have Conservative ideology, and some member Conservative team turn on you, it shouldn’t change your ideology, unless you never have it in the first place
All of a sudden you find out that the people that you thought were your friends have turned against you, they despise you, they mistreat you, they leak to the press, what do you do? Do you become more conservative? Or do you say, What am I doing with this crowd of lunatics?
They turned on Roberts because he sold the Constitution, and consequentially, his supporters out.
It’s not a real hard concept to understand unless you don’t want to understand it.
What an asswipe.
Posner - Ive become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy, he said.
Posner is a statist RINO. Levin ripped this guy up and down today.
Republican does not equal conservative. Never has, and has never been so far away as now.
I’m not too critical of Roberts because I think he’s a liberal and he voted like one. I don’t think he was bribed or intimidated or tricked. I just think he’s a liberal.
For those unfaMILiar with Posner’s ruling in Willowbrook v. Olech, might I suggest that Posner came down on the side of the individual. He referred to the City of Willowbrook’s argument as “blaming the victim, with a vengeance”.
Having said that, the reason we are faced with Bammy, ad nauseam is that commies infiltrated academia and agencies generations ago.
Either take back the schools or see America go FULL COMMIE ! ! !
Levin made it clear that Posner has become a buffoon. It was wonderful to listen to. Posner doesn’t have a problem with Captain Kangaroo selling out America? REAL Americans DO. Roberts is a loathesome traitor, and his reputaion is shot to hell. Nothing and no one can restore it. Bob
Oh, boo hoo.
We're hurting Roberts' feelings?
What's he going to do, sell the country into socialism and set legal precedent that will keep us in socialism for generations to come?
To me, he is a smarmy American traitor who, if the law is not overturned, will be remembered as a man who sold his countrymen down the river for a few words of praise from the Washington Post. Scum!!! Bob
I mean, what would you do if you were Roberts?
My FRIGGIN JOB. I would have done what I get paid for.
To rule things unConstitutional that ARE unConstitutional.
Not to rewrite it for Obama.
