Obama: You Guys Should Move On, I Won’t
Here’s what President Obama said when he reacted to the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare:
What we won’t do — what the country can’t afford to do — is refight the political battles of two years ago, or go back to the way things were,” the president said on June 28. “With today’s announcement, it’s time for us to move forward.
However, CBS News reported that he’s still talking about the decision and Obamacare on the campaign trail.
I doubt anyone’s surprised. What Obama really means when he says that we shouldn’t refight the battle is that Republicans should stop talking about an unpopular bill that was rammed through Congress by Pelosi and Reid and that caused the Democrats to get a “shellacking” in 2010. Obama wants his signature legislation to be considered a historical fact that cannot be altered by Congress. This is a classical tactic employed not only by President Obama but almost every liberal out there. They want to make their proposals appear to be statements of fact and not the products of a failed political ideology that they then would be forced to defend.
