proposed statement by Chief Justice John Roberts on US Senate obstruction

This message is both a general message for all Americans and a specific message for the 100 Americans who are currently US Senators.

My name is John Roberts.  Since I was confirmed by the US Senate on September 29, 2005, I have been privileged and honored to serve as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

During my confirmation hearing I committed to decide cases like a baseball umpire calls balls and strikes. And I would be more comfortable conducting my duties quietly from the Supreme Court.
