    After Robert's leaping into bed with Obama in order to wrongfully find Obamacare Constitutional, we don't even need a Supreme Court, we can just flip a coin and get results as valid. There is no reliable means of prediction or classification of the court now and the Constitution and laws mean nothing.

    Leans Conservative, but not as far as some would like. If they had a DP lean it would be "Slightly Conservative" or "Moderate."

    Maybe, just maybe, Roberts knows a little more about the Constitution than you do.

    The members of our Supreme Court possess far above average intellect..so they simply cannot be labeled as con, libert, or lib.
    It depends so much on the issue being in front of them.

    TBH, I suspect that his decision was.a.pre-election poison pill.

    Hoping for a rep win to do away with the ACA.

    There are a couple justices that are a bit too openly political. Keynote speakers at conservative events etc.

    This. Serious, scholarly interpretations of the Constitution have very little to with political ideology. One's views on government may shape one's beliefs on what the Constitution means and what role the Court should play, but interpretations do not fit into camps like conservative, liberal, or libertarian. Probably the best contemporary example is Clarence Thomas. He's widely seen as the most conservative justice on the court. He may be a conservative in his overall worldview, but many of his votes have been decidedly non-conservative. The most important example is his dissent in Gonzalez vs Raich where he said that the federal government had no authority to punish people who grow their own marijuana. Some have said that Thomas is instead more libertarian. Even then, his rulings, such as his dissent in Lawrence vs Texas which struck down a set of sodomy laws, show that he doesn't always rule this way either. If anything his dissent proves my point. He pointed out that he strongly disagreed with the sodomy laws, but just thought that sodomy wasn't protected by the Constitution. None of this stuff is a secret. If you want to actually understand the justices' judicial philosophy turn off Fox News or MSNBC and actually read their opinions.

    I never said I didn't. I guess that doesn't fit in with your "lefty" stereotype so...go on thinking whatever you want
