    Roberts is truly a Conservative wingnut. He just didn't want another Citizens United on his resume.

    Can't agree with you on this one. I liked Roberts when Bush nominated him, and I believe he is the best and most qualified justice we have. He actually tries to somewhat follow the rule of law. What I find hilarious about that term is that conservatives use it all the time, but none of the justices ever follow it as they make all their decisions based on political ideology.

    What I love most about Roberts is that he is proof that the neocon wingnuts on this board are not normal, run of the mill US conservatives. They are wingnuts...Shrug...

    Lots of victories? How so?

    He lost his main argument with the Arizona case.

    Yeah they upheld Obamacare and the mandate, but that isnt what he wanted anyway. And while I completely disagree with Roberts reasoning under the tax and spend clause. The fact that he has severely limited the powers of the commerce clause and set the precedents needed to eventually overturn Wickard if the right case comes along. Not to mention the right is seriously energized now.

    What other cases did Obama have a victory? Let alone alot of them.

    actually, no... most of the Arizona law was struck down. They left the papers please part in effect but allowed for re-examination depending on how it is applied.

    the decision offers no indication that it limits the commerce clause. it just declined to extend it as far as the mandate.
