I love how easy it is for Republicans to transition from one attack to the next. Conservatives started their new attack as soon as they picked up their collective slack jaws from the shock of the Supreme Court decision. It’s a tax. Oh no, the t-word…which is way worse than any four letter word to Republicans. All of the sudden the constitutionality was a nonissue but a tax increase was all the rage.
Rush Limbaugh said, “And what we now have is the biggest tax increase in the history of the world.” The conservative Drudge Report headline screamed “SUPREME COURT RULES: OBAMACARE STANDS… Mandate survives AS A ‘TAX’…
Their hatred of President Obama seems to even make Republicans question their own identity. Senator Rand Paul the teaneck lover, quoter, and defender of the constitution says, “Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional.” http://paul.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=562
Really? The even if you win by the agreed upon rules you still lose argument. Classic. You really have to love the Republican take on judicial activism and constitutionality in general. They basically think that any decision that does not match their predetermined political position is activism. They could care less about Stare decisis if the verdict matches their politics.
Mark Levin agrees with Senator Paul:
This is just the latest pivot in a long line of Republican follow up attacks. No one can forget the President Obama is a Muslim that transitioned to well if he is a Christian then he is a weird Christian-you know-an unreal Christian. So even if he is a Christian it does not matter because just listen to his pastor Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright. One must remember that Republican “Christians” have appointed themselves as the deciders on questions of who are real Christians and real Americans for that matter.
Peace be with you,
