Dustin McDaniel wants Obamacare to be the law of the land

John Brummett claims it would responsible and practical for Gov. Beebe to start the process of Obamacare in Arkansas, but I am hoping the Supreme Court will make all that moot.

Red Arkansas Blog wrote a good piece that I wanted to pass along.

What do the Department of Justice, the National Federation of Independent Business and 26 state Attorneys General have in common?

They’ve all requested writs of certiorari from the United States Supreme Court to determine the fate of ObamaCare in the matter of United States Department of Health and Human Services v. State of Florida.

Politico thinks the DoJ  request means President Barack Obama is either very smart … or very dumb:

It could be one of the smartest political moves the Obama administration has made — or a historic mistake that could kill not just the health care reform law but the president’s chances for reelection, too.

By asking the Supreme Court to rule so quickly on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, the administration is taking a huge risk that the justices will rule against the law right in the middle of the 2012 race — either striking down the whole law or just slicing out the requirement for nearly all Americans to buy health coverage.

One thing we can be sure of, however, is that since the Obama DoJ has made this request of SCOTUS, we can officially destroy the concept that “any such lawsuit would be frivolous and would have more to do with politics than the law.”

The only person seeming to be of little or no weight, worth or importance in the context of this story is our own Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. It was his office that supplied the quote above by way of explaining why he chose to forgo joining the 26 other states that now seem poised to have their day before the Justices.

So our questions to Mr. McDaniel are thus: Do you still maintain that this suit is frivolous given the Obama Administration’s cert petition? And will you stand with 26 other Attorneys General and the people of Arkansas in their effort to fight this unconstitutional law?

Or will you side with Mr. Obama?

And don’t think we don’t remember how Mr. McDaniel availed himself of the opportunity for Democratic brownie points by testifying in support of Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor–a likely yes vote on the ObamaCare issue.

We spy Dustin!

Gotta love C-SPAN.

Anyone think there might be a television commercial running in the spring of 2014 with juxtaposed images of Mr. McDaniel and Ms. Sotomayor?
