I’m not sure I can say much else that hasn’t already been said about the ruling last Thursday.  As much as I think Roberts actually made the right move, I just thought image this was damned funny.  After letting the decision sit on my mind for a few days I think he just didn’t want another Bush v. Gore.  His decision keeps the supreme court “apolitical” for good or for bad. As much as I wanted the mandate scrapped, the decision is good in the long term with regard to the size and scope of the federal government.

Roberts has effectively kicked the ball back to Congress and said “It’s your ball, YOU bounce it.”

The election forecast looks pretty grim for Romney, but a lot can change between now and then.
