It is becoming clear that the compulsory medical insurance section of Obamacare is going to be declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. The vote will be 5 to 4.
The fact that four justices will vote for it is indicative of just how far we have moved down the road to tyranny.
Already, the liberal media are running for cover. They are trying to spin this defeat as no big deal for Obama’s campaign. (The CNN video is an exception.)
If you take away Obmacare from the record, what has Obama accomplished? He got a Democrat-controlled Congress to pass a $700+ billion stimulus package in 2009. He has run $1.3 trillion annual deficits. But Congress is always ready to run deficits.
What has he accomplished legislatively that is uniquely liberal, meaning uniquely Obama? Only Obamacare. He is not known for anything else. If Obamacare goes down to defeat, he has no legacy.
It is not likely that the Democrats will gain control of both houses of Congress. If Obama is re-elected, he will face determined opposition in at least the House. He will not get any piece of liberal legislation through the House if the House is Republican.
It looks like he is boxed in. The deficits will continue, but they will be bipartisan deficits.
Quick: What was Bill Clinton’s legacy (other than Monica)? There was none. He was in power for eight years, and he accomplished little. At the end, there were budget surpluses, if we don’t count the concealed deficits in Social Security that covered the red ink. But Bush and Obama have erased that legacy.
Obama was elected by liberals by giving speeches about hope. He has not given such a speech ever since he was inaugurated. His supporters now expect no changes. There is no hope. He will not be able to rouse the troops in November. The excitement is gone. He is just another politician with no vision, no agenda, and now no hope of getting anything through Congress.
Let’s hope that we get a 5 to 4 decision against Obamacare’s compulsory health care insurance. That will end his version of hope.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media tell us that this looming defeat really doesn’t matter for his campaign, which is saying that his failure to get anything through Congress in four years in no way will affect his supporters’ enthusiasm.
