Obamacare reversal seals Republican fate in NovemberSubmitted by kevinkervick on Thu, 03/29/2012 - 13:48
If Obamacare is overturned by the Supremes, which is looking likely, it will effectively be eliminated as a presidential campaign issue. That is if Romney is the Republican nominee. The media has annointed Romney this week and everybody and their brother are endorsing him.
This is the opinion du jour from Washington pundits.
If Obama loses this battle he will be able to diffuse the criticism by pointing out that Romney himself was the inspiration for Obamacare. Romney advocated for a national individual mandate, the unconstiitutional lynchpin of Obamacare, that the Supremes rightly abolished or will soon abolish. Thus, the issue loses its valence. I think this is correct.
Paul should join with Santorum in criticizing the choice of Romney. If Romney is the nominee, Obama wins in November. Or, Republicans get a President that does not respect the constitution.
