Unless you are William Howard Taft, who as Supreme Court Chief Justice would highly approve of his successor Chief Justice John G. Roberts.  Or unless you reside in the town of Taft) read it and weep.  More of that man-on-man (Roberts vs. Obama) action, as the Supreme Court blocks (partially) Obama’s ability to exercise executive action on the environment.

Another crude contest, and another excellent example of how an American president wields executive action in defense.  It is not an offensive move.  Read for yourself.
