Skip to comments.A substantial conservative win
Posted on 06/29/2012 2:02:48 PM PDT by OldNavyVet
"Conservatives won a substantial victory on Thursday. The physics of American politics - actions provoking reactions - continues to move the crucial debate about the nature of the American regime, toward conservativism. Chief Justice Roberts has served this cause."

If this was a “win”, I hate to see what a loss looks like.
George Will is an idiot. this is a loss.
I think his Toupe glue is leaking into his brain. This is a huge loss for all people who believe in a free society!
Mispelled conservative in title. Sorry
LOL You need to listen to Mark Levin's show from last night.
The infliction of STATISM and the destruction
of what was written in the Constitution is NOT a ‘win’.
THAT may be good enuf for a RomneyBOT (proROMNEYCARE
and ROMNEY-deathPANELS and RomneyTAXES’called fees’)
BUT it is not good enough for any conservative.
This proves the importance of NO RINOs. NO Statism.
George Will is the classic example of what living in D.C. for some thirty odd years does to a conservative.
No he doesn't. It's fantisifical gobildy-gook.
June 28th, 2012 will always be a historic day in American History. It will be the official start of a political revolution that starts us on a path toward radical exceptionalism and prosperity or it will be the day that sealed America's fate along the long downward slide into European mediocrity.
I personnally wouldn't bet on the political revolution lasting any more than 2 or 3 years, or as soon as the economy is "deemed" recovered.
Please read the article ...
No kidding. Anyone trying to spin this ruling as anything other than a fraud and in obvious violation of the Constitution is either and idiot, an agenda driven troll or in complete denial of what just happened to our Republic.
Anyone who is awake needs to get ready for the next phase, and that means quit yapping and start acting.
That silver lining George sees is the border that divides republicans and conservatives.
Politically (and only politically) this is a win for republicans.
It IS a loss for Conservatism, for America and all who loved her.
George Will is obviously republican first and conservative second (if he’s conservative at all).
I understand your frustration over this whole mess, hell the ZERO reign since day one.
I really think this will wake up conservatives like nothing else could.
of course I would have preferred that the SC had struck it down as it is unconstitutional. But since they didn't I have gotten over my sick feeling and realize how it could help.
We have several tapes of ZERO saying it isn't a TAX. One had George Stephanapolis asking him if it is a tax.
Hang in there ZERO is toast, this just adds fuel to the fire.
We need to get control of the Senate....Here’s one group that is working on it.
I don’t find this to be a good analysis. I think George Will has gone over the fence and out to pasture, mentally, if you know what I mean. Roberts did recognize that the Commerce clause does not permit regulating non-Commerce, because it was obvious to everyone.
I still think it is likely that he had ulterior motives for finding a way to uphold Obamacare ...like keeping his family alive.
Will sees a victory where there is nothing but an increase in the lawlessness of government. I do not...
The article might pep you up.
Of interest, Republicans tried to do in courts what they could not do in Congress. In effect the court took the position it was a law and to tell Congress to fix it themselves. Funny, court conservatives wanted the court to decide. Strange twist.
George Will is a mental midget who was impressed that someone came up with a way to uphold Obamacare that he had not considered.
Like a child who is suddenly exposed to a new idea and is overwhelmed by it, Goerge Will is mistakenly impressed with Roberts’s decision when he should be appalled.
Lacking the intellectual capacity to really analyze what happened, he defaults to his suck-up position and tries to spin a disaster into a success. George Will is a clown. Pure and simple. He’s just given us a big laugh.
