Bob Belvedere lays it on Roberts, who KNEW better
John Roberts, however, is not a Leftist drone, yet he obviously has acted in a way that brands him as a Useful Idiot and Dupe of the Left. He may think he pulled a fast one or that he’s preserving the integrity of the SCOTUS, but the Left is laughing at him behind his robed back and celebrating their capture of another Right Wing Dupe. This decision will not restore the image of The Court. In fact, it sends a message that the Chief Justice is willing to sacrifice The Constitution for the sake of a facade — the political image of SCOTUS in the public’s mind — and this will, perhaps fatally, damage the reputation of the SCOTUS in the eyes of the Right — the only group that respects The Court and it’s place in The American Experiment. If, however, Roberts believes what he wrote, then one cannot be blamed if he questions the mental health of the Chief Justice.
By stating that the Congress has an unlimited power to tax, Chief Justice Roberts and the Leftist Justices have declared that The Constitution does not mean what it says and that the Congress need not concern itself with enumerated powers when it comes to using the taxing power, which, as many wise men have pointed out over the centuries, is the power to destroy.
BC has some great comments Rush made today
Donald Douglas has two posts up, one trying to salvage some credibility for Roberts, sorry I am not buying it, not at all, but it is worth the read. The other raises the question. Did Roberts change his votes due to some type of pressure?
Gateway Pundit notes that Romney donations went ballistic after Roberts rewrote Obamacare to save it and has a great cartoon as well
Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has raised $4.2 million since the Supreme Court ruled President Obama’s healthcare law is constitutional.
Romney started raising funds immediately after the decision, and in a post on Twitter his campaign spokeswoman said he had raised $4.2 million from 42,000 donations.
“Fundraising update for #FullRepeal: 42k+ donations, $4.2 million raised online for @MittRomney since #scotus decision,” tweeted spokeswoman Andrea Saul.
Romney responded to the ruling by renewing his pledge to repeal the Affordable Care Act known as “Obamacare.”
He wrote in a fundraising email to supporters on Thursday: “Today, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. But regardless of what the Court said about the constitutionality of the law, Obamacare is bad medicine, it is bad policy, and when I’m president, the bad news of Obamacare will be over.”
One thing can be said of this, that fire in the American people’s hearts against big government is hotter than ever! NOW, this election is about the economy AND Obamacare, AND high taxes, and all of those added together equals a very bad November for Democrats!
