Where is Romney? Why hasn't he made a statement yet?

Hate to temper righteous indignation with reason, but when Bush appointed Roberts we were all extremely happy on this site.

Roberts and Alito seemed perfect.

I think now that if Roberts is conservatively inclined (and I’m not sure) he is bending over backwards to interpret the law as he sees it and not given in to pressure or idealogy.

Amen, deener, but asking these people to grow up is an exercise in futility.

“Where is Romney? Why hasn’t he made a statement yet?”

Because he knows if he says what he’s really thinking it would be liking dumping gasoline on a fire.

Romney’s statement is powerful and eloquent.

” - - - Let’s not expand it. Let’s repeal it.”

Since Chief Justice Roberts did Congress’ job by converting a well-defined punitive FINE into another predatory TAX, the question to us FReepers is:

“ARE YOU TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY?”

_______

BTW, why not just ABOLISH it FOREVER?

Woo hoo ... I’m so glad. But injecting reality into some here doesn’t work.

Obama knew all along that this was a tax, but since he’d said he wouldn’t add middle-class taxes, he called it something else.

Now it’s out. It’s a tax. But doesn’t Congress have to authorize a tax? And we have a Republican House.

Hey lookie: it's Nurse Ratched here to lecture on us against acting out against the GOP and Romneycare! "BO,HICA conservatives. OK turn your head and cough.

Donations are pouring in so fast at Romney’s website it has shut down

Wow.

Romney just said on his first day in office - if elected President - he "will act to repeal ObamaCare".

On Day One.

Roberts is a lawyer.

Lawyers do not obey laws.

Lawyers instead re-interpret laws to suit themselves.

Should lawyers be prohibited from being one of THE NINE SUPREMES?

Good...he had to get this right and be on the record.

He is going to be the next President of the United States. That was also decided today by the Supreme Court. Caveat: As long as he continues to handle this correctly and ensure that all the voters understand this tax hit on them and on the economy.

Whether he becomes a successful President will now depend on what he does on day one to fulfill his promise.

That post is so convoluted I don’t even know how to respond.

I don’t think we can mandate any profession from being excluded from the court.

You’re right but I get more and more excited about a Romney presidency. I think even his supporters will be pleasantly surprised.

At least we’ll get to look at Ann Romney instead of Michelle.

If you're in the market, and your retirement is dependent on your portfolio, you had better get out NOW!

Look for a 20% (minimum) loss (2,500 or more points) over the next 30 days!

Obama very emboldened now, he is up, and he is talking Mussolini-like, with the hand waving, finger pointing into the camera, talking down to the people, and telling us what we are going to do. I watched it a bit first with the sound off to take it all in, his demeanor. This is pure cock of the walk. This is fascist, pure and simple. Statism in our face. This asshole must go, one way (election) or another (impeachment). Simple as that. Haul his ass up before the Senate for trial on Fast and Furious.

He is out of control. He is so full of crap, but he is also an extremely dangerous man. This is tyrant speech. You will do this, you will do that. Socialist pablum for the entitled underclass, pure and simple.

Of course they could always change this, but Americans living and working overseas, if they are outside the continental United States, they can get an exemption and do not have to pay for the insurance under individual mandate. Watch hundreds if not thousands of Americans nearing retirement, (or not for that matter) to be looking for safe haven overseas with jobs or retirement, to exempt themselves from the requirement, and the requisite penalities by the government for not having said Obama Insurance.

You are right, as usual.

Hence, after considerable due diligence I have decided to insert this line as the penultimate line to the convoluted post that you made reference to:

“If lawyers on the US Supreme Court do not obey laws, then why should we?”

Hope that puts it all in the proper patriotic perspective for you. Have a very happy Fourth of July.

I thought the ObamaCare bill originated in the Senate. If it is now deemed to be a tax, then how can it stand procedurally, if all revenue bills must originate in the House?

That traitorous asshole certainly had a spring in his step this morning in the East Room, he was definitely channeling Albania’s late Enver Hoxha when he walked up, and particularly when he curtly turned his back on the people and walked away after giving the Message from the Omnipotent Overlord. It is all subliminal, the way it was stage managed. Romney at least had the decency to make a side exit with manners, partially looking at the cameras , but down at the White House, this arrogant, narcissistic, manipulative, passive-aggressive, intimidation, this “spout the orders, wag and point the finger at the audience, turn, face your back to the people on national TV, and strut off” is pure Hoxhian (or maybe I should add, pure Ceaucescu-ish). When do the Sieg Heil salutes start by the Marine Guards in the grand entranceway?

Yes it has. If they’re not attacking Republicans, they have nothing to say. This is Alinsky tactics, and I hope the majority of FReepers can see through it.

I agree. Romney wasn’t my choice in the primaries, not by a long shot, but now it’s either him or Hussein, and I will never vote for that POS currently occupying the White House. At least Congress could oppose Romney when necessary without wetting their pants for fear of being called “rayciss”.

Yes, and contrast this to Boehner warning us not to “gloat” if it went our way.

Hey Grae, just curios - what office do you hold?
How many times have you ran?

All you do is bitch and complain here, every damn day -
get your bad self out there and run for a spot to
change what you obviously hate on day in and day out.

You and your side kicks here make me SICK -
bitch all you want about Romney, it will NEVER change
the simple reality that it’s him or the pos driving
this nation into utter chaos.

Got a better plan, run on it and shut your endless yapping.

Support for what? yelling and screaming that the world is ending? Not likely - now if you came up with a plan that made an ounce of sense, I’m all for it.

Small minds talk about people - great minds talk about solutions.
