So who hasn’t pre-recorded their Obamacare decision analysis?

So who hasn’t pre-recorded their Obamacare decision analysis?

Richard Mourdock’s campaign had an operational failure by uploading a video about the Supreme Court overturning Obamacare.   The campaign also uploaded other versions depending on outcome.

That’s an embarrassment, but really, who has not come close to that?

You mean to tell me the newspapers don’t have templates already written depending upon which way the decision goes?  Or the television stations don’t have varying scripts written?  Or Politico, which broke the story, doesn’t have all-purpose analyses ready to go?

Really, while Mourdock’s staff never should have uploaded it, I don’t blame him for filming it.

Everyone wants to be first.

I’ve already prepared an all-purpose generic blog post:

In a decision sure to have long-lasting and wide-ranging implications for politics and the economy, the Supreme Court today (overturned/upheld) the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare.

The (sharply) divided Court (struck/upheld) the law which had been a focus of the first two years of the Obama presidency.

Justice (_______), writing for the majority, ruled that the mandate to purchase insurance did (not) exceed the limits of federal power expressed in the Commerce Clause.  The Court held that forcing individuals to purchase health care insurance was (not) within the plain language and judicial interpretations of what it means to engage in commerce.

[add in event mandate stricken] As to other parts of the law, the Court ruled that the lack of a severability clause was (not) fatal to other parts of the law.  In so holding, the Court found that the failure to included the clause did (not) reflect a congressional intent to allow the law to stand if one provision fell.

Justice _____, joined by Justices ________, filed a stinging dissent.

It is fair to say that while the legal battle over Obamacare is done, the political battle continues.

19 years of schoolin’ sure is payin’ off.

I understand that the Collectivist punditry is rehearsing…

Literally. Rehearsing.

The spin is being focus-grouped for when ObamaCare is flushed in whole or part.

The Beastly Day had a piece up today about how “radical” the Supremes are.

    A group named Jewish Tea Party Patriots have a useful graphic for those who want to be prepared for any eventuality between now and November 6th.

    radical Supremes ?

    “You can’t hurry Love,” not even for a “Love Child” like Barack. But next week, we will see “The Happening” but till then “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” leaving me to ask “Where Did Our Love Go” but “Someday We’ll Be Together.”

Will there be fireworks in the event this disaster is overturned. I realize spiking the football is in poor form but no one ruled out fireworks to my knowledge.

I am no lawyer, but that won’t stop me from offering a 100% uninformed opinion. My template (prediction, actually) is that 4 justices will vote to overturn the mandate, while 4 will vote to uphold it.

Justice Kennedy will try to find some way to salvage ObamaCare through a compromise. The compromise will make only cosmetic changes, leaving ObamaCare largely untouched. Nevertheless, the media will go nuclear over the “radical” Supreme Court decision in an effort to excite Democrats for the elections in November.

Perhaps the Good Professor can share his post-election blog entry with us now. It appears he may have that written as well. It could save the nation a good bit of difficulty if we avoided the nastiness that is certainly coming through the fall…

Question: So who hasn’t pre-recorded their Obamacare decision analysis?

Answer: Nancy “Are you serious? Are you serious?” Pelosi. IMO she is in denial that a serious challenge exists.

ahem…..I know you’ve had 19 years of schoolin’ but you might want to tweek this just a bit:

“…..the failure to included the clause….”


19 years of schoolin’ to copy/paste the wire from AP/UPI on the Roe V Wade ruling?

(just teasing)

Well done.

19 years of schoolin’ sure is payin’ off.

Kudos to you, Professor … you put up with one more year of reading, writing and bullshit than I ever could have stood for without going postal back in the day. 🙂

Fireworks if the mandate is struck down for sure. In this day and age, any major sign of sanity should be heralded.

If the whole thing gets thrown out…use everything. I don’t know what fun little celebratory tidbits the internet has hiding around, but if the whole farce gets thrown out, use ’em all.

19 years of schoolin’ sure is payin’ off.

23. 🙁

Careful, trying to excel in your field… err to dominate is considered offensive to liberals and hence there will be repercussions.
-playing fields that require “leveling.”

I’ll stick to my previous prediction:

6-3–mandate struck.

As far as fireworks, Momma Browndog (not pictured), Sadie Marie, mother of Browndog (pictured), refuses to go outside since Michigan legalized fireworks.

This State has been lib too long–legalize the sale, without addressing the use-

Bombs bursting in air..…’round the clock

    OcTEApi in reply to Browndog. | June 21, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Its a celebration, freedom should not be regulated.

    Sound like that old coot Republican Mayor of Warren, that the state passed legalization of fireworks for the tax revenue but its a state unfunded mandate on cities … because celebratory fireworks are “disturbing people” and assured police will be cracking down.

      Browndog in reply to OcTEApi. | June 21, 2012 at 11:00 pm

      If you need to celebrate it being 6:30 on a Tuesday…bake a pie, or order Chinese.

      “Sounds of Baghdad” isn’t cutting it.

        OcTEApi in reply to Browndog. | June 21, 2012 at 11:05 pm

        It only lasts for about a month or so, lighten up and enjoy them…

        Or be a small gov’t kinda guy and take measures into your own hands… wit a finger wag and shakes fist at cloud.

        OcTEApi in reply to Browndog. | June 22, 2012 at 2:38 am

        6:30 on a Tuesday, cmon bdog don’t tell me you don’t understand the spirit of celebrating freedom… like those that endured the true “Sounds of Baghdad” fought for.

        Ya know when I hear “without addressing the use-”
        I really hear regulate, regulate, regulate – enforce, enforce, enforce!
        ~try humming a patriot tune when you hear Bombs bursting in air..… might kill off those been lib too long feelings

          “I have thought of 100 different things that we have to make sure we put in the ordinance,” Watson said. “I don’t want to leave holes in the ordinance that are going to come back and haunt us later like the state legislation — I want it to be thorough.”

          Like the super-drunk law…
          Prosecute those super-patriots that display huge festival balls ..rflmao!

I have already uploaded music for my blog that will play the morning after Romney defeats Obama. If I am wrong, I believe I will be facing bigger problems than my embarrassment.

Fireworks, yes.

And some of those songs we all know that sound so much like prayers.

“Oh beautiful, for pilgrim’s feet, whose firm, impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat across a wilderness ….”

Speaking of pre-recording, some reviews I’ve read of the correspondence about Executive Privilege make it seem the request from Holder was poorly written. Did he not see this coming? How dense is that? Are both Holder and 0bama products of Affirmative Action, just making-shit-up? I guess that puts Elizabeth in good company.

Oh yeah, those Swiftboat ads, I’ve never seen any proof they weren’t true. Were those made up? I think not. Democratic politicians seem to be able to make up war records and get away with it. Republican voters seem to have little tolerance for that sort of falsehood.

So, do you have an “all-purpose generic blog post” for after the election when Obama loses? Or is that too far in advance?

I always try and remember what Sir Arthur Wellesley, First Duke of Wellington, said: “Nothing except a battle lost can be half so melancholy as a battle won.”

I’ll be happy, for sure, but we’ve still got a divided house. And magnanimity is not the strong suit of narcissists, such as inhabit the Left. First, whatever the outcome, I’ll thank God.

thelookingspoon | June 22, 2012 at 3:27 am

I have a couple of graphics ready to go, but unlike your blog post, professor, mine go one way…so I REEEEEEEEALY need SCOTUS to strike it down 🙂

Easily the best post evah! I adore your sense of humor (and insight, of course).

Would be sweet if a SCOTUS decision striking it down was released on June 28

1776 – The Battle of Sullivan’s Island ends with the first decisive victory in the American Revolutionary War.

This is really no different than having obituaries ready to go. You’d be negligent if you weren’t prepared. Having said that, it’s amateurish for Mourdock to screw the pooch so badly by having this come to light.

As ObamaCare has emerged as a symbol for everything Obama believes, the political repercussions of it being struck down in whole or in part will be felt all the way to November …

When asked why she is so confident the Supreme Court will uphold the health care law, Pelosi says, “Because I know the Constitution.”

“This bill is ironclad,” she continued. “It is ironclad. Nobody was frivolous with the Constitution and the health of the American people in writing the bill,” she said.

Activist conservative firebrand Speaker Boehner has made it very clear that if Obamacare goes down he doesn’t want people to celebrate it. Therefore, if it goes down, I plan to spend a few quiet moments in the corner quietly weeping.

Funny post. Made me laugh.
