John Roberts is voting with liberal justices, but he's not one of them

Chief Justice John Roberts’ recent votes with the liberal members of the Supreme Court have given rise to speculation he has become the court’s new swing vote, but court watchers say he has not suddenly moved to the Left.

Instead, the chief justice, 64, now sits at the middle of the court and is working to shield it from accusations the justices are politically motivated, they say.

Analysts characterize Roberts as an institutionalist who cares about protecting the Supreme Court’s reputation, and they note that while he has joined the liberal justices, his votes were primarily on procedural motions rather than the merits of the policies.

If issues like abortion, campaign finance, and affirmative action do come before the court, they don’t expect Roberts to offer any surprises.

“When the rubber hits the road,” Ilya Shapiro of the Cato Institute said, “his views are clear, and that’s not going to change.”

Roberts' votes speak for themselves.  Needless to say, this Bush appointed justice has proven to be a major suporter of the uber left.  His positions to protect the Supreme Court are in fact doing just the opposite.  I say the Supreme Court has too much power and should be scaled back.

Seven members of the omnipotent court sentenced 60 million and counting of the most vulnerable to death in America.  The single worst case of mass genocide perhaps in human history, by the likes of seven wankers.

I say end the Supreme Court as we know it.  It is political and no longer serves its purpose.
