Obama Machine Sticks With Straw Man Strategy ^ | 03/14/10 | CaroleL

Posted on 03/14/2010 10:35:29 AM PDT by CaroleL

Yesterday it was President Obama's lead pollster employing a straw man fallacy to argue with the American people over Obamacare. Today it was two of the president's top advisers who were sent onto the Sunday morning talk shows to use the same strategy against the Chief Justice of the United States.

This embarrassing, third-world style dust-up between two branches of government (with the third cheering one branch on like a bunch of drunken soccer fans) began during the president's State of the Union Address in January.

This was vaugely familiar with an occasion when Hitler’s cronies took on the German Republic’s Supreme Court Judges in public, ridiculing them with Saul Alinsky tactics.

This most civilized Republic was on it’s way to becoming a pile of bricks and rubble.

Perhaps what is being shaped by both sides is the public stage for the inevitable Supreme Court case concerning the legality of the health care bill. A recent Eastern Dem. paper’s editorial urged Obama to pack the court, which, at the time seemed fairly odd a subject, and the State of the Union speech seemed like an instance of an intended display of “in your face” power. Then we have the measured, delayed public response from Chief Justice Roberts and the implied hint that some or all of the justices might not return for the next State of the Union address - which might make their non-appearance more reported than the speech itself or Obama.
Anyway, just as it seems an irony that the abortion issue became such a hurtle for the Dem. party to overcome within its own ranks, it also seems an irony that the Supreme Court, a small group of legal elites, which you would think would be the picture of the Dem. ideal for wielding power in government over millions, may throw a shoe into the health care machinery eventually and save us all from the consequences of the public’s recent unserious voting habits.
