  •  Jan Crawford should join the Romney staff (0+ / 0-)

    Here she is helping Romney flip flop--or as CBS puts it--'clarify his position'--on calling the mandate a tax:

    Jan Crawford: Have you changed your views on this? Do you now believe that it is a tax at the federal level; that the Supreme Court has said it's a tax so it is a tax?

    ...You can say try and say that you wished that they had decided in a different way, but they didn't. They concluded that it was a tax. That's what it is and the American people know that President Obama has broken the pledge he made.

    He said he wouldn't raise taxes on middle income Americans. Not only did he raise the $500 billion dollars that was in the bill, it's now clear that his mandate, as described by the Supreme Court, is a tax.

    Jan Crawford is the CBS reporter that leaked the story that Roberts switched his vote due to political pressure from liberals and the left wing media. So she also could find employment as a GOP spokesperson.

    An excerpt from her unbiased, agenda-free reporting:

    Over the next six weeks, as Roberts began to craft the decision striking down the mandate, the external pressure began to grow. Roberts almost certainly was aware of it.

    Some of the conservatives, such as Justice Clarence Thomas, deliberately avoid news articles on the court when issues are pending (and avoid some publications altogether, such as The New York Times). They've explained that they don't want to be influenced by outside opinion or feel pressure from outlets that are perceived as liberal.

    But Roberts pays attention to media coverage. As chief justice, he is keenly aware of his leadership role on the court, and he also is sensitive to how the court is perceived by the public.

    The choice of our lifetime: Mitt Romney, It Takes A Pillage or President Barack Obama, Forward Together.
