This Thursday, The Supremes will strike out the mandate but will probably keep the rest of Obama Care.
Obama will greet the news with a speech about a (fictional) sick little boy he knows, who needs a new heart, who now will die because of the heartless conservative justices on the Supreme Court. It’s a lie but it will stiffen up his base and get him a few more votes.
When the Supreme Court announcement is made Nancy Pelosi will cry on camera and secretly vow to re-write Obama Care. She also will make up a lie about a little girl she knows, who needs two new kidneys and a liver who will now die because of the five heartless Supreme Court justices who voted against the mandate.
She will never mention the 62 percent of the U.S. population that was against having Obama Care rammed down their throats. Obama will win the election. Let’s add up the votes.
Obama will get 99 percent of the black vote. Liberals and Democrats will tell us this is acceptable racism.
Obama will win the vast majority of the Latino vote and that’s OK because Republicans have shot themselves in the foot on immigration.
Obama will get 100 percent of the liberal vote. Liberals will moan and groan about broken promises and still pull the lever for him. Liberals love feeling like victims.
Obama will get the union vote.
Obama will get the gay vote.
Obama will be endorsed by 95 percent of the media. And finally we come to the Democrats. Let me first state that some of my best friends are Democrats. They are political zombies. They keep coming. They never cross party lines. (Democrats, before you write nasty icky things to me, let me remind you I voted for Mario Cuomo, Geraldine Ferraro and Ed Koch. Who’s the last Republican you voted for?)
And if at any time Obama and his gang feel that he doesn’t have a sure victory, I predict that Joe Biden will resign for “health reasons” from the ticket and Hillary Clinton will (after a loud family fight at the Clinton household) be our next Vice President.
Once elected, Obama will go wild.
He will, by decree, turn the United States green. He will destroy the oil industry the same way he has destroyed the coal industry. Pipelines? He don’t need no stinking pipelines.
Every cockamamie green project will get the green light and plenty of green dollars. Obama will make a stirring speech about our clean air debt to our children’s children every time a billion-dollar green project fails.
We will have cars that run 60 miles on a gallon of gas. Unfortunately, many of us won’t be able to afford a gallon of gas.
We will pray for the day when our unemployment numbers will go down to 10 percent. The unemployment numbers will flirt with 20 percent. Small business is doomed.
Obama will blame our country’s four-year depression on Bush, Congress, Republicans, Europe and the greedy 1 percent who won’t pay their “fair share” of taxes. And the next greedy 50 percent who won’t pay their “fair share” of taxes. What he means by “fair” is socialism.
We will become a second-rate country in the next four years. Egypt will be for Obama what Iran was for Jimmy Carter. When Obama went to Cairo in 2009 and talked about relations between the U.S. and the Islamic world, he said he regretted decades-old U.S. actions. He turned his back on Israel. That told the Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood the Middle East was theirs to take.
Want to worry? In the next four years at least five nations will have their own drones and a president who likes to play “who shall live and who shall die?” And now that the Obama administration took credit for cyber warfare against Iran, you can bet that there’s some little pimply-faced 16-year-old technological whiz in Russia, China, Pakistan or Iran who, using his computer, has the ability to turn off half the computer-run lights or planes or factories in the United States in one day.
The truth is when we re-elect Obama after the past hapless four years we deserve what we get.
I’m so, so depressed.
