Obama hits a home run

To watch President Obama’s calm, rational and pragmatic statement on the Affordable Care Act ruling is to be reminded of how and why it is the man got elected four years ago.

It also reenforces just how much the President himself embodies so many compelling and frustrating aspects of a democracy that is is in so many ways the worst possible form of government, except for all the others that have been tried.

    Obamacare and it’s impacts on business and upon taxes has just become a major campaign issue and we’ll see how it turns out. My prediction, the issue will hurt Obama and reinforce his image as a tax and spend liberal and a weak president who leads from behind.

    As a nonprofit payee, and at the expense of taxpayers, Rob reflects on the good in Democrats and Obama. He closes his eyes to the death of the border agent agent. Rob closes eyes to Bev and her cronies who break the law. Revoke the non-profit status of Progressive pulse and NC POlicy Watch.

    Frank, you’re deluding yourself with Faux news talking points, and Frances, why don’t you the Fortune magazine article that just came out with detailed revelations on that piece of crap agent Dodson and complete sham Issa’s 18 month waste of tax dollars and political grandstanding “investigation” turned witch hunt to no where. ATF agent Voth deserves a medal. Your posting privilege on this website needs to be revoked.
