It’s time to double down! First, you can tell reporters how to report on you….
“This bears on your reporting,” President Obama said to journalists. “I think that there is oftentimes the impulse to suggest that if the two parties are disagreeing then they’re equally at fault and the truth lies somewhere in the middle. And an equivalence is presented which I think reinforces peoples’ cynicism about Washington in general. This is not one of those situations where there’s an equivalency.”
“As all of you are doing your reporting, I think it’s important to remember that the positions that I am taking now on the budget and a host of other issues. if we had been having this discussion 20 years ago or even 15 years ago … would’ve been considered squarely centrist positions,” Obama said a few moments later.
Okay. Bullshit aside (“the positions that I am taking now on the budget … would’ve been considered squarely centrist … 20 years ago or even 15 years ago” … Wow, that’s wa-a-a-ay more than a shovel-full…!!) , you can then call out the entire Supreme Court:
… the president expressed confidence that the Court would “not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”
Seriously? Overturning laws that do not adhere to the Constitution is unprecedented for the Supreme Court?
I think not, Obozo.
And a vote of 119-114 for Obamacare is “a strong majority (of a democratically elected Congress)” ?!! OMG – what if the vote were 414 -0?! Oh,wait – that would be “not working together”….!
Then, while you’re furiously dancing to stay ahead of your critics, you can use your impressive “Constitutional Law Professor” knowledge to criticize the Court, by quoting a court case that he says involves the Commerce act from the 1930’s…… only it was a state case from around 1905. Brilliant, dude.
Finally – I will hunt & hunt until I track down the source for the “double down” comment. I read a piece that demonstrates just how often, and in how many ways, the Bo D. likes to use that gambling metaphor. I will find it. Here’s a hint (- the vid is immaterial.)
