Monday Mount Up:Teddy’s Ghost?

Saw a NY Daily News piece by Jonathan Rauch based on speaking to Ted K’s ghost about how the Liberals are poised for greatness if SCOTUS dumps the mandate in ObamaCare.This would occur secondary to the mechanism that is alleged judicial activism in the case of Citizens United v FEC combining with new activism in dumping the mandate. The activism being from the conservative arm of the Court is supposedly cause for conservatives to lose any claim to the “judicial tyranny” platform.

I personally found the piece somewhat annoying for a lack of a better word to describe how it spoke to me, I do think it touched on one thing though.

Are the ghosts of the parties mixing,fading or something? In 2012 the DEMOCRATS are running on a strong FP/defense standing?!? Now the Liberals think a couple of decades of railing against an activist law making court is possibly becoming a weapon in their arsenal?!?!

    Alfie, at the Correspondent’s Dinner two weekends ago Jimmy Kimmel joked: “If you had told me years ago that I’d be on the same stage as President Barack Obama I would’ve said, ‘The President’s name is Barack Obama?'”

    The old rules are out the window. It’s a dynamic landscape. If the GOP gets an ass whupping in November up and down the ticket, we may see an interesting shift in conservative politics. When the GOP is forced to embrace women and minorities in order to survive, there is no doubt the dialog will shift.

    It would indeed be very interesting and beneficial for the nation if every issue found honest differing positions. Real debate and dialog? Wow who’d have imagined? I think there are older ghosts that would’ve.

    You may have found the article annoying, I found it stupid. Really, now we need to talk with ghosts to get people to read our opinions. Oh WTH if talking with ghosts brings on real debate and dialog, go for it! Stranger things have happened.
