With Jack's P-G column this week he lengthens by one this list of crazie Roberts Conspiracy Theories. As much as he might disagree with the Supreme Court decision validating the Affordable Care Act, he points out its (unintended??) consequences:
Some conservatives think the chief justice did the right thing. Not legally -- I agree with his critics that Chief Justice Roberts tortured the law to make it go where he wanted to take it -- but politically.See? Roberts found the law constitutional in order to make it easier for the GOP to remove Barack Obama from office! It's all so clear. I can see the truth now (Acts 9:18).
If the president is re-elected, it wouldn't have mattered if the Supreme Court had thrown out the health care law. He'd simply ignore the decision. (He's already ignoring the ruling that Obamacare is a tax.) The only way to restore constitutional government is to remove Barack Obama from office. I think that's why -- after siding with the conservatives on every point of law -- the chief justice strained so to find Obamacare constitutional.
But think of what that says about what Jack's thinking. Let's assume he actually believes what the GOP thinktanks are saying about "Obamacare." For example, that it's a "job-killer" or that it "raises taxes" on Americans.
For Jack, these horrors to be visited on the American People are acceptable (for other people to suffer through, of course) as long as their presence makes it easier for Mitt Romney to win in November.
Nice to see your true colors, Jack.
