A Rasmussen daily tracking poll showed President Barack Obama did not receive a bounce from the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding Obamacare.

Why would he if the polls are correct that show the majority of people don’t like the idea anyway?

Ironically, had SCOTUS ruled the other way, that might have "helped" the Obama campaign as he would have been able to run on the meme that those "nasty Republicans" are taking away everybody's "free healthcare" and how we need to re-elect Obama so that he can nominate SC justices that will do the right thing.

The SCOTUS decision took that away from him and appears to have fired up the Republican base.

That said, I still wish SCOTUS ruled the other way.

Unfortunately, Romney isn't trending upward, either. Frankly, Obama even being at 45% is disturbing given the fact that he really hasn't had a "good" month since early in the year.

Personally I would much rather see a much more abject total fracture of their ideology on their faces when its overwhelmingly and monumentally apparent the ACA will not work, will not be accepted and will be buried never to arise again.

To see the sad look of defeat in Obamas eyes if it were possible with his shark eyes, the emotions coming from the bondo built face of hers and especially the cry of despair of all members of the Communist Party USA.

They will fall from the highest emotions of a victory much faster, longer and deeper into the depths of the oceans than as if they had otherwise lost Obamacare.

They thought they were demigods, they are mere mortals.

Most folks aren’t political junkies like us. They don’t read and furthermore they just don’t understand til it’s too late. I believe my sweet niece Rachel may be starting to understand and shedding some of her liberalness she is trending toward in college. Just got her very first paycheck recently and nearly fell off her perch of confidence. “what happened to my money?”. Sad experience we all go through once the first time it happens. Very sad indeed

Rassmusen pointed out in a interview OBAMACARE TAX has allready failed in the court......of public opionion. It has polled in the negative for two years running.

The post says "No bounce" he was @ -22 for several days then went to -15. I call that a bounce. As long as he is double digit in the "Strongly Approve - Strongly Disapprove" equation all the way up to November, I will feel better.

There is a rumor he will leave the country over the Fourth for some nation building. He wouldn't dare or would he?

On Wednesday, the president will host a White House holiday barbecue for military families.

That's just the name recognition power of incumbency. This time in 1980 when the economy was also in the tank and we had a bunch of hostages in Iran, and an impotent farce for president, said president was a good 8 to 10 points ahead of Reagan and looked like he was cruising to re-election.

Obama is the one who should be disturbed, because he is so well known, that everyone who is going to vote for him has already made up their minds. It will be very hard for him to crack 50% as election day draws nearer.

Oh hell yes, he would. He has no shame. He thinks he has his heels dug in.

Wait ‘til November. People are more aware of what he us doing and more are being personally attacked now. That will get them going.

“He wouldn't dare or would he? “

Thanks for killing that rumor. Heard it last week on a radio show. He must know how the 4th of July means to the American people and our freedom. n/s

Why would Baraq pass up a thousand MSM photo-ops with soldiers at the WH on July 4th?

He can play golf the other 6 days of the week.

Good! Now we can start working on the little less than half the folks polled who claim they WANT Obamacare, even though they know nothing about it. Republicans have a lot of educating to do between now and the election.

Already the biggest impact I have had on libs is reminding them that the IRS will be the enforcement arm and this is radically different than “Romneycare” where MA chose it.

This article in particular has had some favorable impact on FB with those who think Obamacare is all sunshine and roses:

I agree with you for the most part, but, people are more “in the know” on this than you might think. This Obama/RobertsCare thing has got people more angry than I’ve ever seen them. If you think people were pissed in 2010 during the Midterm Elections; just you wait until Nov. 6, 2012.

Keep your eye on the percentage of Undecideds. Historically, 80% of the Undecideds go for the challenger on Election Day. So, if by Nov. 1, it’s Obama 47%, Romney 47% and 6% Undecided, Romney will win with 51.5% to Obama’s 48.5%. That said........

The Electoral College is more important than the popular vote. To guarantee the Electoral Vote, the GOP MUST take back (from Obama) these States he took in 2008: Indiana, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, and Iowa. This is not only “doable” but I think it will happen. I also think it’s very likely that Romney will take Ohio. And, he just might take Wisconsin and Michigan.

Yes, they do, BUT.... next to winning the Presidency, The GOP must concentrate on taking back the Senate. All we have to do is take 9 Senate Seats away from the Dems (And right now our chances look very good.) and have a GOP Vice President and Obama/RobertsCare is REPEALED!!!

Lot of the moochers will be kicking back November 6th same as they do any other day. Obama thinks they will be grateful for the largesse. But they are ungrateful to the taxpayers (aka suckers) and will be ungrateful to Obama. So will skip voting, they got better things to do. Like buying drugs or a new LED TV

Since the senate is now 51-47 dems, what do you mean 9 seats? Seems like it would be 13 + VP for fillibuster-proof or 3+ VP if the reconciliation route can be used.

I thought the other day he said there was a bounce? Actually, that surprised me. I’m surprised there wasn’t actually a dip.

I think Obama IS disturbed. That is why he wants us to ‘move on.” He is also insistent that this is NOT a tax. He wants it both ways . . . he wants to stick it to the taxpayer but he doesn’t want us to hold him responsible for the ways in which he does it.

OK, first of all I was not considering the need for a filibuster-proof Senate since Obama/RobertsCare is now a tax. All we need are 51 votes. Secondly we're both wrong. I did a Google search and apparently got a site with "old" numbers b/c it said: 57 Dem, 41 GOP and 2 Indys. I didn't think that sounded right, but, it was late and I was tired. You, correctly, said 51-47 Dems. However, the two Indys caucus with the Dems so it's actually a 53-47 disadvantage for our team. But, you are correct in the fact that we only need to take away 3 Seats from the Dems. That would give us a 50/50, and with a GOP Vice President..... Can you say "Repeal"?

Sorry for the mix-up. Thanks for straightening me out. I really think that we are going to take the Senate and hold onto the House. Now, all we need is the White House and that won't be easy, regardless of what anybody says. As Pat Caddell said on Hannity Thursday night: "You don't know what you're up against." But, people are mad as hell and I'm optimistic.
