Odd how things turn out

Next election the GOP may find they are in absolute love with ObamaCare (of course, not for the reasons the left loves it.)

Update: The only problem with this strong case is that the left has been successful in marginalizing Faux News among their useful idiots.

That tingle is a trickle going down his pant leg. Chris Matthews says Obama has no leadership.

I am hoping that the most important fact about today's Obama "1 year reprieve" for some current policies get publicized, and so far I've seen this mentioned nowhere;

It's the means by which to get rid of Obamacare. All of it.

Obama, not for the first time, is using "prosecutorial discretion" to grant waivers of enforcement of the law. (that's how this is being done).

So if Obama can grant a reprieve of enforcement of the law by this means, why, exactly, couldn't a Republican president get rid of Obamacare by simply declining to enforce any of its provisions, permanently? No need to go to congress or deal with a D filibuster, and it was Obama himself who set the legal precedent.

The problem is it takes a lot of hubris to do that. What president other than Obama would?

The fact is we have a constitutional crisis and I have no faith that collectively we could fix this.

If we could fix this somewhere else it might provide a template for change, but it just can't happen here. Too much baggage has been accumulated.
