SCOTUS ruling consequences slowly sink in

And I'm not just referring to the growth of government, federal expenses, state budgets, and the 20 tax increases on people making under $250,000.  Politico has a lead article entitled Liberals fear the John Roberts rebound. I had to laugh when I saw the title. Apparently the liberals missed this fact last week while they were gloating about the ruling - but it didn't escape conservatives. The very first thought I had when I heard about the ruling after "Really!? Seriously!? You're not joking!?" was how much the conservative base is now going to be fired up. And we are.

As the article mentions, conservatives are now poised to have some big wins in November. Apparently the liberals think there are even bigger court rulings up in the next session that Roberts has given himself immunity from any (liberal media) criticism about because of his prior SCOTUS ruling but we'll have to wait and see about that. I have little faith that Roberts won't keep his liberal bent.

Meanwhile, a recently released poll shows Romney up 51 to 43 after the Obamacare ruling in 15 swing states, though the liberal article mentioning it hastily adds that Obama is still up 49-46 nationally. Whatever that's worth - they're always slanted too liberal in comparison to the actual electorate, and at any rate the 3% is within the margin of error. All this really means is it's a close race, and Obama isn't gaining ground in any swing states which he would certainly need to win the election. Obamacare is not popular in any swing states, as discussed at Breitbart a few days ago.

*FYI the links in the first sentence all are from Rush Limbaugh, who is on a terrific roll about Obamacare and what it means for the country.
