Juan Williams Jumps the Shark....Again

The relevant point is that the court may do irreparable harm to is reputation with anotehr highly political split between justices appointed by Democrats and justices appointed by Republicans.  A 5-4 defeat of the healthcare law will erode trust in the justice system.  
So says Juan Williams.  I guess he has forgotten this:
The poll also asked respondents if they think the individual mandate is constitutional or unconstitutional. Seventy-two percent said it is unconstitutional. Though there were some partisan differences, a clear majority of even Democrats, 56 percent, think it is unconstitutional. Ninety-four percent of Republicans and 70 percent of independents said the individual mandate is unconstitutional.
And this has been constant throughout the debate on healthcare.  The difference is that democrats, for the most part, don't seem to care that it is unconstitutional.  They want Obamacare and it matters none if it violates my rights or hurts the healthcare industry in this country.  

The real question that Juan Williams should be asking is why possibly 4 justices that were appointed by dems would so blatantly disregard the constitution and say that the federal government has the right to force us to by a product simply because we are alive?  When you are willing to answer that question Mr. Williams, then we can talk.

the answer is simple. the Supreme Court took it upon themselves to be the sole interpretor of the Constitution so that gives them the right to declare any law constitution or unconstitutional depending upon the theory that is held by each of them.
