Another messianic ultimatum from President Obama: you’re either for me or you’re against me

President Obama is fond of spotting what he considers to be false choices.  Mostly these “false choices” are code for you’re too stupid to see the better way, but fortunately I, Barack Obama, am here to spell it out for you.  However, this higher plane doesn’t always suit the present cause, so Obama and the Democrats have identified at least one area where there is no false choice: Obamacare.  You are either for it or you are an uncaring, selfish, precedent-rejecting fool.

Interestingly, the Dems have put this either/or proposition to the one person who will have a large say in whether Obamacare survives–the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts.  From the Wall Street Journal:

You can tell the Supreme Court is getting closer to its historic ObamaCare ruling because the left is making one last attempt to intimidate the Justices. The latest effort includes taunting Chief Justice John Roberts that if the Court overturns any of the law, he’ll forever be defined as a partisan “activist.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy recently took the extraordinary step of publicly lobbying the Chief Justice after oral argument but before its ruling. “I trust that he will be a Chief Justice for all of us and that he has a strong institutional sense of the proper role of the judicial branch,” the Democrat declared on the Senate floor. “The conservative activism of recent years has not been good for the Court.”He added that, “Given the ideological challenge to the Affordable Care Act and the extensive, supportive precedent, it would be extraordinary for the Supreme Court not to defer to Congress in this matter that so clearly affects interstate commerce.”

The elite liberal press has followed with pointed warnings that Mr. Roberts has a choice—either uphold ObamaCare, or be portrayed a radical who wants to repeal the New Deal and a century of precedent.

While I do not admire or even respect the chutzpah of these idealogues I do marvel at it.
