Skip to comments.Obama reportedly prepares three speeches ahead of health-care ruling
Posted on 06/28/2012 5:08:40 AM PDT by SJackson
WASHINGTON The White House has kept its preparations for the Supreme Courts decision on President Barack Obamas health care law close to the vest. Mr. Obama, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday, the West Wing is merely waiting for an opinion, a decision, and well assess.
But Mr. Obama has been doing more than sitting back and waiting. The president has three separate speeches prepared in anticipation of the ruling on his signature legislative achievement, a person familiar with them said.
One of the speeches addresses a complete overturn of the law, while another is crafted as if the court strikes down the laws individual mandate but upholds other provisions. The third speech, for if the court upholds the entire law, is more celebratory, according to this person.

Secret Service has Obammy on a suicide watch.
Maybe they'll take a long lunch.
1). Bush's fault!
2) 4 radical Republican honkeys and an uncle Tom on the USSC,
Will he give all three? Will anybody except MSNBC listen to him?
Why, he’s like Roosevelt before D-day.
cool, fire up people to vote against him.
Is this story to give cover to the rumor that the results have already been leaked to the White Crib - possibly via a
Obama does not prepare speeches. He speaks from the heart.
What about the secret 4th option?
I don’t buy this: Obama has known the decision since the day the Supremes held their secret vote. Remember the Obama meltdown the Saturday after? Maybe this “claim” is just trying to provide some cover for Kegan.
4) “The Supreme Court will no longer be of any concern to us. Using my power as Emperor I have dissolved them permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away.”
Unfortunately, none of the three is a resignation speech.
He will cancel, get a burger and an ice cream and go golfing.
Hillary will send him a letter of condolence. :-)
Michelle will say it's whitey's fault.
Oops! I mean “Kagan.”
absolutely! This is a cover story, only a fool would believe the result has not been leaked. Down goes soetoro!
I believe Obammy will be viewing flames and destruction today in Colorado.
Rather interesting coincidence I think.
wouldn’t it be funny if they loaded the wrong speech into the TOTUS ?
This way, he can update the D-Day Ike exhibit, and where it says “Eisenhower prepared two press releases, in case....” they can say that the Great Hussein had THREE speeches prepared...
Let the teleprompter pick!
“Maybe this claim is just trying to provide some cover for Kegan”.
...Kegan is being provided “cover” under a “carpet” somewhere. Bwahahahaha.
That was my first thought.
Frack, of course it was Eisenhower (smacks own forehead). I’m sorry for assuming it was Roosevelt upthread.
You're close. Should read:
Obama does not prepare speeches. He speaks from Valerie Jarrett's heart.
“I’m betting that his pre-planned speeches won’t work...because the decision will include a reprimand of both Congress and the President.”
That reprimand will have been in the works for at least a couple years, when he first started dressing down the justices.
Only a racist minority freak would have been allowed to get away with that level of disrespect.
Big Media will work even harder today to tell us how great he is if the USSC spanks him.
Obammy most likely has only one speech.
Blame Bush, blame the Tea Party, and he needs a second chance.
He will openly beg for a second chance, and mostly will give several indications of veiled threats if he isn’t given his second chance.
Oh come on! Like Sotomayor & Kagan aren’t on the phone to the WH giving Obama a blow-by-blow of the court’s deliberations?! Obama already knows the decision. This is just smoke.
We're about ready to go!!!
How could that be with no severability clause?
Lets not get our hope up. Maybe that meltdown was done on purpose to give us the ideal that Obamacare is going down. Satan is a very sneaky person you know.
One speech if they don't reveal the secret NASA shuttle, one if they launch it and the space rescue doesn't work, one if they launch it and it does work.
Gist of Obama’s prepared speeches:
1. Upheld - Mixture of crowing and Lecturing his critics
2. Partially Struck Down — Mixture of crowing, threats agains SCOTUS and executive orders to implement anyway
3. Totally Struck Down — Mixture of threats against SCOTUS & and executive orders. Warning to Congressional Republicans not to “stand in the way of progress”.
The best option is the one they will never consider—silence.
“It is better to be silent and thought a fool than speak and remove all doubt.” :-)
>>Why, hes like Roosevelt before D-day.<<
More like Hitler and Mussolini before D-Day, but if they knew the plan but couldn’t stop it.
He doesn’t have 3 speeches prepared. He knew within minutes of the ruling what it was going to be.
Only needed “The Supreme Court has spoken and we will obey”.
The guy from Podesta’s group signaled the talking points yesterday on Hannity’s radio show.
The first thing out of the hack’s mouth was that Republican’s want to deny poor people health care. That’s going to be the main talking point, IMO.
Hannity missed an opportunity to stress that this wasn’t about health CARE, it was about health INSURANCE. Also he didn’t say that poor people did have access to health care via Medicaid.
Levin said that Obama will implement the law (if struck down) through executive orders, piece by piece and that the GOP better be prepared to fight back.
Other than golf and parties, this might be the most stress he’s and in years. It would be nice if he cared as much about the Constitution or national security as he does about socialized healthcare.
Or something like it.
Did he prepare like this for the Bin Laden raid? I don’t think so.
So speech number 3 spikes the football?
That does explain the fundraiser with Vogue magazine.
I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interest of America first. America needs a full-time President and a full-time Congress, particularly at this time with problems we face at home and abroad.
To continue to fight through the months ahead for my personal vindication would almost totally absorb the time and attention of both the President and the Congress in a period when our entire focus should be on the great issues of peace abroad and prosperity without inflation at home.
Therefore, I shall resign the Presidency effective at noon tomorrow. Vice President
FordBiden will be sworn in as President at that hour in this office.
BO hasn’t prepared anything! He reads from the telepromter what he is supposed to read.
B.S. Kagan called him with the result ten minutes after the vote was taken. He has known for weeks. This story is just laying down some CYA for her.
It would be funny if he read the wrong prepared speech. All it needs is for a mixup to happen with the Teleprompter®. Somewhere out there is a technician who could arrange this. Oh, please do this! For the good of your country!
Quite possibly. However, I do expect him to try to implement the whole thing by Executive order ...somehow. Also, look for a lot of [scared] companies to say they’re going to abide by the rules anyway.
