Charles Krauthammeer suggested that John Roberts is playing a sort of catch-up baseball since Roberts feels he needs to protect the image (among liberals, evidently) of the Supreme Court which got bad ratings (like CNN) since 2000, when the Supremes sided with W Bush over Al Gore. Maybe, Krauthammer, the psychiatrist, has gotten into the head of Roberts, but that remains to be seen. We have expected Roberts to act more honorably, as opposed to expecting Elena Kagan, who drafted Obamacare, to recuse herself from making any decision on the matter. I am convinced that most Democrats cannot experience shame or embarrassment, so why would Kagan, a Dem, entertain the thought of doing something honorable?
Another disturbing fact about Roberts,the newly reincarnated embodient of the Reagan appointed, lib-light David Souter, is that his decision to allow Obama's taxation for medication Affordable Care Act, was inspired by lib-heavy Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who convinced Roberts that calling Obamacare a "tax" was a good selling point. Funny, that Roberts cagily hinted that it was bad law, but that he had no power to strike down a bad law, because Congress (Democrats), as representatives of the people, can sort of make anything a law that they choose, according to the Constitution's Welfare Clause Article 1 Section 8. Roberts, like a liberal, overlooked all the fallacies of Obamacare, and refused to count the cost in money or the lies delivered by Obama's Solicitor General who clumsily defended the Affordable Care Act.
And, John Roberts approved of the Obamacare fiasco as a TAX- which Obama vehemently denied. So goes the lesson that when the pop culture and the pop media convince Republicans to hate Bush so much in 2006 that they would give both houses of Congress - the House and the Senate - to the Democrats, expect hell on earth. Roberts, in a "too cute by half" way has, maybe, delivered a NaNa NaNa Na to the electorate through his statement, "This is what the electorate deserves for voting for such dotes (Democrats)" [heavily paraphrased].
Also disappointing has been Chief Justice John Robert's vote against Arizona's self-protective imigration law, as well as his not defending the Stolen Valor Act, which would make it illegal for non veterans to claim that they were decorated veterans.
I don't know what's in Chief Justice John Robert's head, but we are stuck with it until he retires.
There will soon be no doubt about one thing Roberts has done: Obamacare is not only a tax, it will be the largest tax ever issued by a government in history. Let's pray it will be defeated,soon.
