The Supreme Court mostly upheld Obamacare this morning, and that’s as deep as I’m going to get into that latticework in this post. If you want to read the ruling or in-depth analysis, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding such.
I’m also not going to go back over the ignorance, misinformation, and stupidity that has led some significant portion of our populace to believe this is a good thing. Others will do so effectively today, and maybe I’ll get back into that game in a day or three.
No, I am instead doing my best to bring good cheer today. Here are a few thoughts that have perked me up a bit:
- Barack Obama is a graceless and unrestrained winner. History indicates that victory tends to highlight some rather undesirable traits in his personality, and we can certainly count on that with a perceived victory on his signature issue. He’s an eminently reliable jackass.
- Obamacare is unpopular. Most of us don’t want it. That means most of us don’t view today as a win. Obama will quickly have trouble squaring his jubilation with that fact, and given his demonstrated political ineptitude, that should pay dividends.
- Tax. Tax, tax, tax, tax, tax, tax. Tax. Tax. Counting the number of times that comes out of Mitt Romney’s mouth, and the number of times Obama talks around it, shall make fabulous political theater. He can’t avoid it, you know. He is celebrating today because of the word tax. In that context, enjoy this video from 2009.
Now today is not a good day, and spinning it to the contrary is ridiculous.
Fortunately, there are 131 more of them before Election Day.
Take today off and pout, if you must. I’m doing that. I’m not talking about this anywhere except right here.
Tomorrow, it’s blitzkrieg. Let this galvanize us. Let this underscore what’s at stake. We must repeal Obamacare, and to do that we must defeat Barack Obama.
Marshal your strength. Open your checkbook. Make the case.
Make it 2010.
