As I read and listen to some conservatives coming to the defense of Chief Justice Roberts, I'm stunned almost beyond belief.
Some are saying it was a blow to the commerce clause in that Roberts said the health care law didn't come under the commerce clause. But, if I understand it correctly, the majority didn't agree to that point. Next, they are saying that since the ruling also said the federal government can't forces states to comply by withholding funding, it is a vote for states rights, in a way.
Lastly, some are saying that Roberts has deftly placed the health care ball back in the political arena and has, on purpose, handed the Republicans a tool to use against President Obama in the general election. Well, if that is true, then they have just supported Michelle Bachman's comment that Roberts is an activist judge, although she meant it as an attack because he was the swing vote. For them to praise "activist judges" in an interesting twist.
But that's just one man's opinion.
