Obamacare, The Veepstakes, and Presidential Character

Email Email Print
Two quick essays on the operation of character in the presidency and throughout the administration, one from Jim Geraghty at National Review and one from John Schroeder at Article VI Blog, both worth reading.
Jonathan Martin updates the Veepstakes, but a new question for the mix is who among the short-listers is best positioned to talk Obamacare and its replacement reforms. That takes us back to the “Ps” –Tim Pawlenty, Rob Portman, and Paul Ryan– and dark horse Jeb Bush. Marco Rubio’s stock rose among the handicappers when the focus was on immigration. The focus is now fixed and will remain fixed on Obamacare. Whomever emerges as Governor Romney’s running mate needs to be able to talk “exchanges,” “dragooning,” and the details of the nightmare of Obamacare with ease and specificity.

Clark Judge’s essay on the decision in NFIB v. Sebelius is below, and my two major pieces on the decision are here and in my Friday column, which has generated 300 comments, some fierce, others incoherent, all of which reflect the debate generally. I have written it a half dozen times and write it again: We don’t know how this will turn out and won’t for at least a year.
Did anyone notice the massacre of Catholics in Kenya by Islamists based in Somalia? Had this happened anywhere in the world but Africa, people would know.
I will be on with Dennis Prager at 10 AM Pacific to discuss the Brief Against Obama.
