Roberts is a sniveling coward who will rot in hell for helping to destroy health care and kill our seniors. His seat is now reserved right next to the evil Obama.

Sniveling coward? Kill "our" seniors? How many seniors do you own, for goodness' sakes?

I think you're going to feel pretty silly in about a year, for making the comment above. But then again in a year, you'll have forgotten about it anyway and will be ignorantly ranting about something else, you mindless idiot.

(There; see how pointless *ad hominem* is? Makes the target angry, but establishes no principle.)

Roberts made a brilliant move that puerile and mindless folks (Left and Right) don't understand. I'm sure that doesn't bother the Chief Justice; he's not throwing rubber chickens to the pee-stained groundlings to get their cheers.

I bet that a two years form now obamacare is still in place that ronmey and the liberal republicans contoling congress have done nothing to repeal it. That Roberts is still trashing the constitution and that American is a socialist nation which is as bankrupt as Greece and that China is the worlds only super power and the Chinese yuan is the world currency. And you will still be in a fantasy about how roberts is a constuctionist who honours the constitution and is playing a longer term game.

The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision upholding the Obama administration's health care legislation was a victory for the president, his administration and his party. Their most ambitious legislative achievement has not been nullified, and they are not left in obvious disarray.

But it is only a partial victory and in some ways not a victory at all, both in the short run electorally and in the long run in terms of the constitutional order.

Politically Obamacare, as its critics call it, remains highly unpopular. It's possible that the court decision will boost its support, but unlikely.

Most voters...
