Chief Justice Roberts makes his move | and more…

The Supreme Court is more conservative than ever – and as a result, it’s under attack more than ever.

That’s why Chief Justice John Roberts is speaking up and trying to head off critics. reports:

Amid a drop in public confidence in the Supreme Court and calls for increasing its membership, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. devoted his annual year-end report on the federal judiciary on Friday to a plea for judicial independence.

“The judiciary’s power to manage its internal affairs insulates courts from inappropriate political influence and is crucial to preserving public trust in its work as a separate and coequal branch of government,” he wrote.

Roberts has always been obsessed with the Court’s image, but he needs to understand that nothing he does will make the Court liberals happy. It’s better to be hated and successful than loved and ineffective.
