Chief Justice John Roberts Loves the Law More Than Politics!
I was blown away watching Chief Justice John Robert's confirmation hearings. I'd never observed a person articulate legal concepts and precedents, with such fluidity and skill. It increased my respect for Bush, that his nominee was astoundingly qualified! It made me believe that the days of America's greatness might not be over . . .
Then I heard that, unlike Romney who declared himself a "severe" conservative, John Roberts actually is a severe conservative; to the extent that, in some people's eyes, he borders on being a Nazi . . .
I was disappointed and almost frightened by the warring contrast of a man who probably does not share any of my political beliefs, but who shares my love of the law, seemingly to a degree that guides a well trained mind down the path of reason — to legal truth.
Today John Roberts sided with liberal justices, to uphold the Affordable Care Act, championed by a liberal president who, as a senator, did not vote for his confirmation. Demonstrating what I sensed when I saw his masterful display of legal acumen, that he's a true jurist. John Roberts loves the law more than politics.
John Roberts is what the Founding Fathers contemplated in designing this Nation, individuals in public service, who are true to their public roles, even when it contradicts their personal interests. This is the formula that enables the Founding Father's perfect idea, to manifest as an exceptional Nation . . .
