Judge Roberts may have fooled everyone --- even himself

By Dave Weinbaum



http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | I'm not a lawyer or a shrink but I have a theory on the potential consequences of the Roberts deception. Let's be clear. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court abdicated his job. If you are to believe Jan Crawford from CBS, a reliable and knowledgeable Supreme Court reporter, then Roberts bowed to the pressure of the MSM. This so-called "chess player" of a judge threw in a few tchotzkies for conservatives to try and cover up his malfeasance, but the bottom line is he overstepped his power and legislated from the bench. I'm on the Mark Levin-livid side because of the dangerous precedent Judge Roberts set by the missile he shot through our Constitution in his quest to please everyone.


Taxation without Representation


The scraps thrown to us dogs of democracy don't excuse the Chief Justice's betrayal.

Let me repeat! Justice Roberts ruled the bill was unconstitutional as written and passed—NUF SAID!! Chief Justice Roberts inexplicably entered the same power-trip fantasy with the liberal judges and Barack "I don't need no frikkin' Congress" Obama. He assigned himself a job that even G-d might revert back to Congress. He legislated from the bench—calling the "mandate" a "tax" and abracadabra suddenly this affront to the majority of Americans and the most serious attack on our Republic since our revolution.

Forget the repeal nonsense until President Romney and the Republicans take over the Senate as well as the house. As a result of Roberts' ruling the Obama Administration could force Americans to buy a product as a tax, only 51 Senators are needed to overturn.

The way to achieve this majority is to communicate to the American public what a fraud Obamacare is. It was voted in with the word "mandate" purposely, because Dems knew that would have killed it with the public. Republicans need to demand a revote of Obamacare, not a repeal, based on the new wording imposed by our Chief Jurist. Right now Democrats are choking on the word "tax." They're scared to death of it. Put it to the Dems in the form of a bill so they can put their moniker on the biggest tax increase on anyone making $120,000 or less.

Roberts saved the commerce clause and yet made it legal for the government to make you buy broccoli, a Chevy Volt or enough windmills and solar panels to make a John Kerry or a Kennedy move out of their one percent hoods—as long as it was a tax.

As to Romneycare-get over it! SHEESH! It was a state plan and was legal based on state law. As a federal plan, Roberts ruled it a tax. So after a week of blowing the political advantage given them by Roberts, Romney finally got it right: " If the Supreme Court ruled it a tax, it's a tax!"

If used properly, this tax increase is a political juggernaut for Republicans and a death knell for Democrats. Republicans must just stand up and shout it from the mountaintops! "Obamacare is the biggest tax increase ever and especially upon the middle and poorer class," should be in every speech, missive or blog. Why are Republicans pussyfooting around it?

Please, will somebody give Romney and the Republicans a transfusion of Reagan DNA to offset the RINO disease of McCain malaise? The President is running on the lamest excuse of a false issue—tax increases on the rich (yawn).

For G-d sakes Repubs—take every moment, every speech, every missive to hammer into the American people what this ideological, Socialist, anti-American, bigoted, Marxist idiot hath wrought upon us.

Whining about the Supreme Court right now is counterproductive. We can deal with that after the election. Right now we need total focus on this election. It very likely will be a make or break one for the United States of America.

Take the scraps Roberts left us, roll it into a tea leaf and steep it into our already simmering emotions.

Remember: Boiled tea gets stronger!
