Chief Justice Loses His Cool
New York Times, by Lincoln Caplan

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 12/1/2012 9:59:47 AM

During oral argument at the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. upbraided Joseph Palmore, an assistant to the solicitor general. The words of the chief justice read like bullying. In a case about ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act), footnote 9 of the brief for the government filed by the Office of the Solicitor General explained that the Labor Department had changed its position about a rule for interpreting the statute.

Comments:
If John Roberts thought his unConstitutional Obamacare decision would keep the libs happy....this article is just a friendly warning to him. He better make the right decisions this year too. This article is so obvious!

The Chief Justice lost his integrity on Obamacare. I don´t care about him, and have no respect for him.

The maoist would have preferred to have o-care deemed unconstitional. Now he has to produce something that cannot be achieved.

He´s going to be in a world of trouble for this untenable plan.

As for Roberts, keep in mind that anything written in the NYSlimes is most likely a LIE.

Reading this, I am reminded of what a truly worthless cast of characters inhabit Washington. Obama, Bernanke and Roberts-a hat trick of epic fail. The law of averages suggest this could happen at some point, just wish it weren´t in the middle of a depression.

The Chief Justice obeyed the law when he ruled on health care. It is a tax; if you need proof, check out how many new IRS agents are being hired to enforce Obamacare.

Liberal justices make up laws because they "feel" it´s right. Don´t upbraid Roberts for following the law. Congress does have the right to tax. It is our own stupid fault as a country that we have such an inept president and senate. Put the blame where it belongs.

The attitude I see here a lot reminds me of how NYT editorial writers are scorned when they publish liberal drivel, but are quoted when they agree with conservatives. Just like everyone loves Roberts until they hate him.

If president zero signs a bill into law tomorrow, that would require me to have whitewall tires on my car, or pay a tax, the logic of Roberts would be that the feds could constitutionally do that to me. Since it has the power to tax, it can impose anything it wants on all of us.
That is the impact of Roberts´ reasoning on kenyacare. Article I, section 8 of the constitution, the ´all things necessary´ which establishes powers of the legislature and president, has been trumped by Roberts´ decision.

Chief Justice Roberts’ haughtiness in nitpicking a minor attribution so deep in the weeds of an arcane technical footnote is amusing in view of his risible treachery in the AHA (Obamacare) ruling.

In that case, Roberts couldn’t muster the courage to debate his position openly with the other Justices, but rather waited until the last moment to do about face and rule in the 11th hour, safe from the questions of his incredulous colleagues.

#11, actually, the senate gutted a bil from the house that had nothing to do with O´care and then sent it to committee. That´s one part of the slime practiced in ramming it through. Similar to Tip O´Neil determining the GCA1986 passed on a voice vote when it clearly didn´t. He was the speaker of the house and rammed it through, ignoring the protests of the pubbies present.

Elections have consequences. Many Obama

Roberts is an owned man. His frustration is showing, that´s all. Øbama care was that important to the Administration they crammed it down everyone´s throat and the last best chance of defeating it wholesale was Roberts. He sold out or knuckled under to the pressure- regardless, he´s a dupe and that´s all there is to it. Roberts can go pound sand for all I care. We had better just get on to the next best thing the SCOTUS is not an arm of Justice anymore- it´s a wholly owned subsidiary of Øbama, Inc.

I´m with #16. Read the article.

"The chief justice scolded, “Don’t say the secretary is now of the view. It’s not the same person. You cite the prior secretary by name, and then you say, the secretary is now of the view. I found that a little disingenuous.”

It´s deceptive language, intended to mislead the casual reader. Roberts called him out on it, as he should have.

This is what he chooses to lose his cool about??!

And to poster #8: John Roberts is the only person to consider the financial mandate a tax. The Congress that wrote and passed the bill said it wasn´t a tax. The president who signed the bill into law said it wasn´t a tax. The dissenting justices went to great lengths to explain why it wasn´t a tax. And the liberal majority agreed it wasn´t a tax, but that the law was constitutional under the Commerce Clause. John Roberts stood alone. It was an 8:1 decision with the one prevailing.

In any event, John Roberts is dead to me.

I think the one poster is right. Obama has something on him like he had on Petraeus. Roberts may have properly called the Gov´mnt Lawyer on some point - but the point is, the Dems feel he is bought and paid for, and will smuggly keep pushing for their agenda, no matter how uncomfortable Roberts is.

His days are numbered. His soul is not his own. He either goes public and confesses his misdeeds, or Obama will continue to damn and belittle him.

If I am reading this correctly, the leftist creep from the Soliciter General´s office tried to rewrite a rule, blaming the change on someone from the Bush administration. But Roberts wasn´t buying into the ploy, and chided the attoney who was attempting to blame Bush, again.

The NYT times has, therefore, branded Roberts a ´bully.´ I suppose it was assumed that Roberts ´could be had,´ after the ObamaCare fiasco.

My assumption is that this is mainly a Leftist attempt to (further) delegitimate the Supreme Court.

Leftists really have fallen in love with the trope of "bullying." It is popping up everywhere these days. This is the first time I have ever heard it deployed in reference to the behavior of a judge. For Leftists, bullying is like racism and other politically correct shibolleths. They use the terms in the service of character assassination.

The legal, technical point in this case is minor and not worth reporting. Such differences of interpretation happen all the time in courtrooms all across the nation. They are one of the main reasons there are courtrooms and judges.

The writer of this piece and the NYT have an agenda. The title of the article gives it away: Chief Justice Loses His Cool. The writer then goes on to inflate a perfectly routine courtroom exchange into a supposedly newsworthy event that reflects badly on Chief Justice Roberts and ab extenso the U.S. Supreme Court.

It is almost impossible to believe or even to conceive - but the NYT is still getting worse! How much worse can it get? We will find out.

to commenter 10 - unfortunately, the bill that ended up as Obamacare was initiated in the House of Representatives.It is a myth that it started in the Senate. and it was not born as the law it became. You can read about the origination in various sites online. Chief Justice Roberts CHANGED the Government´s law on the individual mandate into a tax, as it was a levy or a fine or a penalty until it hit that Court. He made up a law to fit the situation.

In my second law school class, in 1982, a professor told our class that if we didn´t enjoy - or at least learn how comfortably to deal with - verbal aggression we should get out now and find some other profession. For what goes on between lawyers - whether transactional negotiators, civil litigators, or judge and appellate lawyer - this is pretty mild, and for a grown up to suggest it´s "bullying" is juvenile and whiny.

I hope and pray that the five moderate to conservative US Justices stay in good health during the rest of the Obama 2nd term in office. The US doesn´t need the US Supreme Court to move further left to far-left. Traditional American values of all kinds are under severe political attack now 24/7 sadly.

To me,the challenge was done under the wrong pretense.We´re all forced to pay SS,Medicare and income tax.The way to avoid them is not work but theyre aren´t any other special interest carve outs I know of. This law say EVERYBODY Must BUY health insurance or pay a fine. Ten minutes later half the country was carved out for thsi or tha reason which violated the pretense of the law.. So to me,it´s an equal protection case.If you´re on government assistence or even work forthe government you should pay something towards. If you´re illegal you shouldn´t even qualify for it because it puts the payment burden on real Americans.

There´s not enough peole working to pay for this and it´ll get even worse as Obama kills more jobs.

We´ll soon have under a 100 million people working in this country if the Obama trendline on jobs continues. He didn´t blink an eye as Hostess going under because he just expanded his dependency class. Now he wants more unemployment extensions under the guise it stimulates the economy. Free money from government stimulates a persons wallet for a short time,it´s called n rich.

Wealth redistribution doesn´t work unless you freeze wealth creation. That´s how you get even with the enemies.If a bully steals a sandwich and the person still has a pile of sandwiches,it doesn´t hurt the victim very much and there´s no punishment involved.

President Obama will host two events on the economy this week as Democrats seek to pivot the political discussion away from the healthcare law. Democrats dispute that that the healthcare law will be a liability for the party in this year’s elections, and celebrated the news last week that ObamaCare enrollments topped 7 million. Still, they argue that jobs and the economy will be the central battleground in November. “That’s the debate that the election will be about, jobs and the budget,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week.

Republican megadonors wouldn’t flood elections with private money if federal law forced individuals to immediately disclose their gifts, not only in public records but in advertisements too, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday. “The Chamber of Commerce told us that if their members had to disclose, they wouldn’t give to these secret PACs,” Pelosi said. Pelosi’s comments come as House Democrats plan to aggressively push for campaign finance reforms after the Supreme Court decision on Wednesday to eliminate caps on the total amount of money an individual can give to candidates, party committees and PACs.

Sharyl Attkisson hasn’t landed yet, but there’s every reason to suppose she’s not going to finish her career in local news in Duluth. For starters, Atkinson is an accomplished reporter. But she’s also taken one of the surefire moves to help ensure her relevance – not to mention potential TV and book contracts – by criticizing the very media establishment in which she spent her career. It’s an increasingly well-traveled path: Over the course of the past two decades, a handful of journalists have left mainstream media jobs while decrying what they saw as an inherent bias in their own industry.

Why does Hillary Clinton hate America? That is the question that should be on everyone’s mind as she embarks on a worldwide tour to plug her forthcoming memoir. Check out this THE POLITICO article [emphasis mine]: Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of “Women in the World” in New York City Thursday night. Clinton’s appearance on a panel with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde, moderated by New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, ran

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

Wellington -He may be only eight months old. But Prince George made an assured appearance on his debut royal tour this morning.

Scroll down for video -With a lifetime of royal engagements ahead of him, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are understandably protective of their young son. Indeed, his appearance today was only the second time he has been

American public school students sick of the smaller portions and healthier offerings they get at lunch thanks to Michelle Obama´s anti-obesity initiatives are sounding off on social media.

[Snip] The extremely negative reviews have over a million kids refusing to eat the offerings, an ironic result for legislation meant to combat

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of
