U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts faces an intimidating situation: support Obamacare and cheered for it, or reject it and be seen as a partisan who has delegitimized the court.
Conservatives have been railing against the court ever since Brown v Board of
Education (1954). That's okay, but it's not okay for the other side to
do it too?
Roland Kayser is right on this. I might tend to agree with Kathleen Parker on
this except that this is the most blatantly political court in the last 160
years, maybe even more so than the era of the Dred Scott decision.
Conservatives hate activist
Irrespective of how we may want the Chief Justice (or any Justice) to vote on an
issue, I do not think that what Ms. Parker describes here is intimidation. It
is the normal course of politics on a hot button issue.I think all
