  •  The key words here are "supposed to" (0+ / 0-)

    It is akin to someone saying "in theory".

    You don't have to look back very far to see an instance of the court being persuaded by non-judicial thinking, it just happened when Roberts came to his senses and let the politics surrounding the ACA change his decision.

    Roberts name is associated with this court.  After Citizens United, had he gone done the path with the other righties on the court he would have forever been tarnished as the court that took away health care from the American people.

    There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that the recent election victories will weigh on the minds of the justices in making these decisions.
