On the ruling by a federal appeals court that President Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate to fill vacancies on the National Labor Relations Board…

This is not gonna sit well in the White House. So they'll take it up to the Supreme Court and we'll see what happens from that point on. I think what they'll say is, "What difference does it make? What difference does it make if the president wants to make appointments? What difference does it make whether it's constitutional or not? The Constitution's old-fashioned. Look at the Second Amendment. It was never supposed to be in there. The Constitution doesn't have anything in there, when it was written, about abortion. The Constitution permitted slavery. To hell with the Constitution. What does it matter?" That will be the reaction of many on the pro-Obama side. "What do you mean separation of powers? Why do we need separation of powers? We think Obama's power's absolute. Why do we need to separate Obama's power?" That would be the low-information voter reaction. "What difference does it make if the president has no limits in his power? The president's a good guy, cares about us, loves us, Santa Claus, why shouldn't he have all the power he wants?" This is what we're gonna be up against.

On political commentator Juan Williams’ analysis that a supreme court ruling against Obamacare’s constitutionality is a lose/lose proposition politically – for everyone…


I know Juan Williams. I’ve been interviewed by Juan Williams. I like Juan Williams. But Juan do you even care what the bill says? Here we are, once again, analyzing the political ramifications for Obama, and for the Republicans – what about for the people? What about for the citizens of this country who are going to lose a significant amount of freedom? What about the constitution? The very foundation of it will be forever altered. The constitution limits what government can do. Pure and simple. That’s what it does. And this one piece of legislation throws that out and opens the door for government control over every aspect of life. Does this not matter? This is not an independent, isolated, political exercise. This is real life here. And I am struck by how many in the pundit class – the exulted, higher, elevated, more-than-the-rest-of-us, don’t even get that. Or they’re uninterested in it. Or they don’t see any use in talking about it. The political prism is all that matters. What about real life? What about the concept of liberty? What about the concept of the constitution that limits government? This is how you lose it. With people not caring. Not knowing. Even worse. People here incapable of seeing the big picture with this. And these, we are told, are the exulted ones. These are the ones smarter than we are.
