“Supreme Court To Weigh Constitutionality of Obama Power Grab”
Which, let me just get out in front of this: 5-4 in favor of the boy King, with Chief Justice John Roberts writing for the majority that “once you go half black, you can never go half back,” or “what the plaintiffs assert are ‘appointments,’ I see as ‘physical taxes’ taking the shape of fat Marxist shitheels out to cripple industry, and it is the President’s discretion to use such fat Marxist shitheels as a tax on industry, particularly if we see the Constitution as a kind of way for me to show liberals I’m very very fair.”
This should never have had to go to the Supreme Court. And the fact that, even then, it took so long to get there, and the National Labor Relations Board has been allowed to function in what is a CLEAR and OBVIOUS violation of the plain text of the Constitution for so long, is just more gaming of the system.
In seriousness, I expect the Court to rule against Obama. Who doesn’t mind, because he will have gotten several years of work done waiting for the Court to catch up with his disregard for the Constitution, the law, his oath, and the people. And I also expect that, as a sort of compromise, the Court will not disallow challenges to rulings made while the Board was functioning unconstitutionally.
So really, what’s the downside? A rebuke vs 2-years of setting up big labor for bureaucratic lucre going forward — coupled with the GOP’s inability, once the move is ruled unconstitutional, to counter it by engaging in their own power grab?
Yippie. Well played, that whole “let’s not mention the ‘i’ word, Hobbits” thing. Because moderates.
