CBS News offers an opinion about the Roberts opinion

If the CBS News analysis is correct, the Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare is even worse than I thought because it presumes that while Roberts did, in fact, change his mind to support the liberals in the ruling, he did so fairly early--by June 1--and for more rational reasons.

The piece also says that the four conservative justices who held firm against the law were so angry with Roberts that they refused to engage with him at all in debate. Their dissent is joint and unsigned, and never mentions the Chief Justice by name.

If you accept this explanation, and I do NOT, although I can see where parts of it are probably true, then in reality Roberts' decision bodes much more ill for the country that we had initially thought, for it presupposes that he actually believes along with the Constitution-killers that Congress has the power to tax human existence and non-behavior.

Of course, as usual, CBS is suspect automatically because it has a penchant for bias toward liberal positions along with NBC, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC (with the exception of Sharyl Atkkisson's exceptional work on the Fast and Furious scandal).

For what it is worth, here is the CBS piece.
