UPDATE: I’m listening via my DVR to Neil Cavuto who interviewed Mark Levin. Like Sen. Mike Lee, Levin mentions Jan Crawford’s article (“Roberts switched views to uphold health care law,” CBS). Levin says Chief Justice John Roberts was “focused on the optics” while Justice Kennedy was “focused on the Constitution.” Levin: “Roberts went political … they want these courts named after them,” e.g. the “Roberts Court” like the “Rehnquist Court.” Levin continues, “It is the most reckless, activist decision … since Roe v. Wade.” More Levin: “If we buy that he threw it to the political branches … he concocted, he rewrote [the Act]. … He reads the tea leaves. This is just the first.” Levin argues we need term limits for justices. (MORE BELOW.)
Original: Earlier I caught this segment of Megyn Kelly’s show and have been waiting for the video to appear so that, if you missed it, you can listen. This Mike Lee is one sharp guy. Megyn isn’t too shabby herself.
You don’t need a wrap-up from me. The video says it all. But I’d love to find out if — as I suspect — you’re hearing similar viewpoints and/or have considered Senator Lee’s points all on your lonesome.
Okay, lonesomes. Have at it.
