At some point

They will probably attempt to take credit for it though I wonder if people will actually fall for it.

I thought

That that is what Barack Obama already has done (or at least that's what the right has been saying about him since day 1)? Different day, new bogeyman for the right. Is it natural to live in a perpetual state of fear?

Over a drafting error? Really?

I know that it's possible, it's just totally insane that something like this- after all else the Republicans have thrown against the law- that would be the one thing that could potentially destroy the law. And it's not like it's not something that can't be fixed in five seconds assuming we had a Congress motivated to do it. It's too bad that it's not something that President Obama could fix administratively. The good news is that if the full Appeals Court overturns the panel's ruling (as is likely to happen), then the chances of it going to SCOTUS are considerably lower- if not non-existent.

We Americans seem to think that suffering

Is not only expected but demanded by the Gods and if things ever start getting too easy, we need to start punishing ourselves again. I suspect that there is a strain of harsh Puritanism that runs through the psyche of our society?

I don't necessarily agree

That a Republican Senate will blockade a SCOTUS appointment. The PR damage would be too much for them. And Obama won't have to nominate a Scalito clone either.

To quote Obi-Wan Kenobi: "He's more machine now.....

than man. Twisted and evil."

Too busy to rid our country of a so-called "Tyrant"

What would our founding fathers have to say about that?

Or maybe President Obama isn't really a tyrant?

Give them time

For awhile, they weren't talking about breaching the debt ceiling or shutting down the government either let alone actually doing any of those things. This "lawsuit" that Boehner is pushing is idiotic but that won't satisfy the crazies who really want impeachment and I believe that eventually the Republicans in the House will take a bite of that apple. Gotta keep their base happy so that they will continue to blindly vote for them, right?

It's basically all over except for the teeth gnashing (and wails of religious persecution)

Has any Federal Judge in ANY state upheld any of these same-sex marriage bans? That they are falling all over the place seems to pretty much prove that they shouldn't have been passed in the first place. The remarkable thing is that they were allowed to stand for so long (let alone be passed in the first place since the laws were all passed on non-secular grounds and, thus, patently unconstitutional to begin with IMHO).

That would imply that they have some left


(closely held) companies now have "religious rights"?
