Read this. Note this, in particular:
Coulter stressed the historical problem with whisking through these “blank slate” type “stealth” nominees. It appears in Roberts’s case, according to Coulter, that he was more career-driven and wanted to be on the high court more than anything else. One of the ways he accomplished this, writes Coulter, was by keeping his personal opinions to himself throughout his career up until his confirmation. Coulter recently tweeted, since Justice Roberts sided with the liberal half of the court on the recent Obamacare decision, Roberts would “go down in history as the Warren Burger of the 21st Century”.
Queen Ann shall regret ever having written such twaddle. It’ll turn John Roberts not only against her, but also against all conservative pundits (who’ve done nothing but savage him since the ACA decision). In any case, John Roberts has read the tea leaves, and they tell him that Mittens is going to lose big-time in November. That’s why he refused to let the Court be used by the woollier elements of the GOP. If they wish to repeal the ACA, they’ll have to muster the votes to do so. By the way, they don’t have them now… and they never shall, for the demographic changes in the American population (brought about by the greed of American libertarian entrepreneurs) shall guarantee that the GOP as we know it is a dead duck.
Texas will be the bellwether, as Hispanic births outnumber Anglo births by 50 percent. When Texas flips, you may as well bury the GOP outside of Born Again precincts. That can’t happen soon enough for me.
