Loony Lefty of the Week: John Roberts
June 26, 2015
He was once thought to be the great conservative hope on the Supreme Court of the United States, but Chief Justice John Roberts has turned out to be a supreme disappointment.
Using rhetorical jujitsu he has twice saved the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) from being declared unconstitutional.
In the most recent instance, he ruled that four very plain and clear words which would be understood by a third grader were in fact ambiguous and open to interpretation by the Administration, which it did.
Thus has Justice Roberts made a mockery of the written word, the rule of law, and the separation of powers mandated in the constitution by essentially legislating from the bench.
None of these are conservative traits, earning him the designation as this week's Loony Lefty.
