U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts — once counted among the constitutional originalists on the high court — has granted President Obama’s supreme wish. By inexplicably siding with the court’s left wing and upholding the president’s signature achievement — government-run socialized health care — Roberts has given Democrats a shiny election-year package adorned with a judicial-activist bow.
The excessive celebration has begun. Nancy Pelosi immediately released a statement gloating, “We made history …. We completed unfinished business!”
Exhibiting that characteristic class intrinsic to “progressivism,” other high-level Democrats took to Twitter: “it’s Constitutional. B*tches,” tweeted Patrick Gaspard, executive director of the Democratic National Committee and all-around sexist pig.
The DNC’s new media outreach director, Greg Greene, one-upped his boss: “Overheard in the office: ‘TAKE THAT MOTHER******S!!'”
To his credit, Mr. Obama showed a bit more of a measured response. At least he bothered to abbreviate his sophomoric profanity tweeting about his signature achievement: “Still a BFD OFA.BO/ayPgAZ” (BFD stands for “Big F—–g Deal”).
Our potty-mouthed president then quickly moved on to wishful thinking: “With today’s announcement, it’s time for us to move forward.”
Not likely, chief.
