Did the Supreme Court help Obama or Romney ?

August 17, 2012

Pundits – all of whom mis-predicted the Supreme Court decision – were largely split re: whether the decision would boost Obama’s or Romney’s Presidential chances.

Well, based on this week’s NYT-CBS poll, the SCOTUS decision was a boost for Romney:

28% said they were more likely to vote for Romney … only 13% said that they were more likely to vote for Obama … that’s more than 2 to 1.

Fair to say that the SCOTUS decision was a force boosting Romney into a dead heat in the election poll.

SCOTUS & Politics

From the same poll, a majority felt that  the SCOTUS decision was based on personal or political views rather than the law.

That can’t be good …

Remember the docs in the white lab coats standing behind Obama?

April 20, 2012

According to Forbes

Doctors, no fans of health insurance, are openly rooting that Obamacare will be struck down by SCOTUS, as appears to be the direction of things after last month’s oral arguments.

A recent poll by sermo.com, a physican’s website, revealed that 75 percent of doctors are against the health care law.

A survey by Deloitte, a major health consulting firm, found that 69 percent of physicians are “pessimistic about the future of medicine” because of the law.

My, oh my, how times have changed.

Whatever the SCOTUS rules on ObamaCare, Obama wins.

November 16, 2011

I think the pundits are missing this one.

Most are saying that Obama wins if the court rules the individual mandate (and assorted ObamaCare junk) is constitutional  ….  and, he loses if the court rules that it’s unconstitutional.

I don’t see it that way.

Sure, it’s a win if the law gets a pass.  Obama can crow about how it’s time to move on.

Here’s the twist.

If it’s ruled unconstitutional, the GOP loses one of its major campaign issues.  They can’t go around beating a dead horse, right?

But, Obama can rail about the conservative justices  legislating from the bench … and, he can argue that he needs to be re-elected – with a large majority – in order to craft a cleaner replacement for ObamaCare and, more important, to control appointments to the SCOTUS to make it more reasonable and objective.

Obama can also reap the economic benefits the laws demise. For sure, hiring will pick up a bit when the bill is buried.

See, heads he wind, tails he wins, too.

Nuts.
