Does that benefit Obama, as some sour-grapes liberals are now claiming?
I very much doubt it.
Obama’s biggest asset – and that of ultra-liberal politicians in general – is the perception that they are in the majority, and we isolated conservatives will be relegated to the ash heap of history. That perception is zealously protected by the Lying Liberal Media, who downplay stories that could puncture it. As New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael famously said after Richard Nixon won a 49-state victory, she didn’t know anyone who voted for Nixon.
But, if the Supreme Court overturns Obamacare, it will provide a boost of confidence to us Eeyore-ish conservatives. We are not alone! Liberalism can be rolled back! If it bleeds, we can kill it.
Obama will have been exposed as an impotent failure, and his signature “achievement” will have been consigned to the ash heap of history. It will be a very long time before anything like Obamacare is pushed on the nation again.
Meanwhile, Obama’s supporters will be even more demoralized than they are now. Their messiah as president, a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, and a large majority in the House, and what do they have to show for it?
Rolling back the Bush tax cuts? Nope.
Closing Guantanamo? Nope.
An immigration amnesty? Nope.
Instead they get the Lily Ledbetter Act (look it up) And corporate bailouts as far as the eye can see.
Do you think liberals will drag themselves out of bed to vote for four more years of that??
The Supreme Court’s overturning of Obamacare will be a heartening boost to conservatism, and one of the best things to happen to this country in many years. Onward and upward!
