Skip to comments.Democrats' Bad Bet Comes Due Tomorrow

Tomorrow, at around 10:30am EDT, the Democrat-left-media complex will launch the most aggressive and sustained attack on the institution of the Supreme Court in the history of our Republic. When the Court throws out at least some portion of ObamaCare tomorrow, President Obama and his partisans on the left and in the media will effectively declare war on the third co-equal branch of government and seek, in every possible way, to undermine the legitimacy of the Court.
They have already tried to lay the groundwork for their attacks. Politico today even unearthed disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner to test-drive the coming partisan attacks against the Court. Glimpses of these attacks have been around since oral arguments back in March, but when the reality of the Court's rejection of Obama's signature "achievement" becomes clear, the ferociousness of the attacks will be like nothing we've ever seen.

I hope so but don’t bet on any result.
If it throws out the mandate for cause, and the rest of it for lack of severance, it will be a Constitutional hero.
Anything less, will stink literally to high heaven.
I am truly afraid for our country between now and January 2013
Very true words. And Anthony Weiner wanted to ask a question, but couldn’t get his hands out of his pants long enough to get called on.
Jay Carney said yesterday the Mandatory Clause was the GOP. These people need Doctors
Any part of Obamacare allowed to be left standing will be a disaster for this nation and the whole country knows it!
there are still progressives on the radio?
