The Supreme Court is sure to play a prominent role in the 2020 Presidential campaign.
Voters will be asked to render judgment on who they want picking the next justice.
But now Mike Pence crossed a line on the Supreme Court that no one ever thought was possible.
Conservatives have lost all patience with Chief Justice John Roberts.
George W. Bush billed Roberts as a consistent conservative in the mold of Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia.
But beginning with the 2012 decision to uphold Obamacare, Roberts drifted steadily Left and this past term came out as a full throated liberal.
Roberts handed the lefts wins on abortion, amnesty, the homosexual agenda, and closing down churches during the coronavirus outbreak.
In an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody, Vice President Mike Pence took the unusual step of calling out Chief Justice Roberts by name for criticism.
“We have great respect for the institution of the Supreme Court in the United States, but Chief Justice John Roberts has been a disappointment to conservatives. Whether it be the Obamacare decision or whether it be a spate of recent decisions all the way through Calvary Chapel, it’s a reminder of just how important this election is for the future of the Supreme Court,” Pence told CBN.
In this – and future Presidential campaigns – any Republican running for office will pledge to voters never to nominate another John Roberts again.
President Trump – who did not nominate Roberts – intends to make that part of his sales pitch to voters in 2020.
Christian conservative voters trust Vice President Pence.
In 2016, Pence helped Trump win the election by telling evangelicals to “come home.”
Vice President Pence will play the same role in 2020 by trying to reassure despondent conservatives that President Trump will not nominate any judges like John Roberts to the Supreme Court.
