Not entirely accurate, Louie. On the right to abortion, Roe v. Wade is the law of the land. And SCOTUS, whether we like it or not, has been making law through misinterpretation of the Constitution for a very long time. That is why "elections have consequences" is such a critical notion.
And what, exactly, would you have had him do? Until a future SCOTUS can find a way to overturn, Roe v. Wade is the law of the land. Bad law? You bet it is, but it is the law. No president can simply wave a wand and make it go away. All the president can do is fill Court vacancies with the most conservative, thoughtful and competent jurists he or she can find. Bush thought he had done that. Time will tell on Roberts.
What are you talking about? The "president" that Ms. Lopez quoted was George W. Bush, and he was defending the "fetus in the womb."
I hate that Obamacare is still standing. But I'm also a little befuddled by some of the criticism of the decision. While the debate raged, before passage of this monstrosity, we argued long and hard that this was a devilish and devious tax increase. Unfortunately, because we had been asleep at the wheel for too long, Democrats controlled Congress and were able to perpetuate the lie that it was NOT a tax. Now that a "right-leaning" justice has called Obamacare what it is and forced four "left-leaning" justices to do the same (or lose outright), we blame the justice for our own failure to protect the country at the ballot box. We need to do OUR job in November.

Do You Support “Anyone But Obama”?

Not only do I support "Anyone But Obama," I do so with enthusiasm! Is Romney my candidate in the primaries? Not a chance. But I'm a grownup, and I've worked politics for a good part of my adult life. You don't always get what you want, so you make do. "Stop digging" is a better result than four more years of Obama. Our duty as citizens is to do what we can for the good of the country. Since the re-election of Obama could destroy everything we love about America, our duty is to stop him . . . period!!
