Get off Chief Justice Roberts Jock!

Get off CJ Roberts jock. Why are so many liberals suddenly pining to be hot tub buddies with Chief Justice Roberts? Roberts supports abortion restrictions, thinks corporations are people, sided with Bush on detainees, supports capital punishment and doesn’t think women must be paid as much as men (Ledbetter). Yesterday’s opinion upholding RomneyCare is far more conservative when you consider the nuance. Sure, Roberts upheld the watered-down (no public option) health care law/mandate by validating the penalty under “tax and spend.” But take a moment and read his attack on the reach of the commerce clause…yes the same clause that undergirds the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other civil rights legislation.
