No one is leaking anything to anyone as no one is acting in any particulate manner that would either show total vindication or abstract defeat.
Why would any Democrat get out there and make a prediction only to look like idiots? Why would Obama get out there and threaten the court if he knew he won?
Well if Obama knew he lost then he would attack them.
Also I think they know he overplayed his hand when he challenged the court as unelected. So now they have to play make nice. The plan was to convince Kennedy to switch sides, but it may have backfired. Also Obama did say when the Supreme Court over tur....then he corrected himself. So He may actually know.
Now they are going to spin like it’s so obvious that it will be a 7-3 decision in support of the law.
Well, if the decision goes Obama's way, it will make him look like he is so powerful that he was able to make the Supreme Court bow to his demands.
After all, everyone "knew" that the decision was going the other way until Obama stepped in to protect America from unprecedented judicial activism.
The press will talk about Obama's "clout," and what a strong and courageous leader he is to bring the court to its senses in such a commanding way.
I think they are trying to make it sound like the law is so “for sure” constitutional that when the SCOTUS overturns it there will be a huge outcry to Impeach those rascally conservative judges. If they can Impeach one, Obama (so sure of his reelection) will get to appoint another justice and tip the court for good.
