Before you look to do harm to Chief Justice Roberts or his family, it’s important that you think carefully about the meaning – the true nature — of his ruling on Obama-care. The Left will shout that they won, that Obama-care was upheld and all the rest. Let them.
It will be a short-lived celebration.
Here’s what really occurred — payback. Yes, payback for Obama’s numerous, ill-advised and childish insults directed toward SCOTUS.
Prescinding from the merits, whatever they may be, of Roberts’ decision am I the only one who thinks “payback for insults” is a poor basis for any court finding? What is this? An elementary school playground? The author of this piece actually seems to think we should all cheer if the SCOTUS says, “You didn’t pick me for dodgeball so I’ll show you!”
Sorry, but I don’t believe for a second that Roberts or any member of the Court would rule from such venal motives. The article tells me about the highly tribalized nature of political analysis, particularly on the right (which has now totally copied the identity politics of the left). But it tells me very little about Roberts’ actual motivation.
