Dwight Eisenhower had his faux pas, Earl Warren. George W. Bush has his, Chief Justice John Roberts. John Roberts, who "grew into the job", "evolved." I believe he was intimidated on Obamacare. Now the liberals, the aristocracy, the "beautiful people" will collectively give him pats on the head and have him at their soirees.
The impression I get when I see photos of him with Barack Obama is that of a person with a fawning mien, appearing to ask, "Did I do good?"
Am I guilty of contempt? Probably.
