In his new biography,“Barack Obama: The Story,” David Maraniss writes that a roommate of the young Obama compared him to Walker Percy’s protagonist in “The Moviegoer”: an observer of his life, one step removed.

Obama’s boss at his community organizing job in Chicago, Jerry Kellman, observed:“He was not unwilling to take risks, but was just this strange combination of someone who would have to weigh everything to death, and then take a dramatic risk at the end. He was reluctant to do confrontation, to push the other side because it might blow up — and it might. But one thing Alinsky did understand was that within reason, once something blows up, to a certain degree it doesn’t hurt, it helps.”

Maraniss’s book depicts Obama on an intense odyssey of self-discovery, moving toward defining himself less as a half-white man with white girlfriends than as a black man who wanted to be part of a black community.

His New York girlfriend, Genevieve Cook, told Maraniss that Obama confessed to her that “he felt like an impostor. Because he was so white. There was hardly a black bone in his body.” When she predicted that his future might be with a black woman —“That lithe, bubbly, strong black lady is waiting somewhere!” she wrote in her journal — he told her “he doubted there were any black women he would feel truly comfortable with. I would tell him,‘No, she is out there.’”

I watched that interveiw and as a fair minded judge he will not shutout potential new cases by ruling on them before they get to the USSC.

His example was the potential for MANPAD ground to air missile system being available to civilians yes or no.

Just be thankful that Obama won't be able to appoint more "judges" who are committed to tearing America to shreds in service to Pelosi/Obama's Orwellian Nightmare Agenda if we can MAN UP and toss him out in November.

Every American Democrat must vote to Stop Obama. After all our kids futures depend on it.

I am still ecstatic about the Supreme Court upholding President Obama’s signature piece of legislation as CONSITUTIONAL… especially after enduring the last 2 years of these ignorant right-wing idiots thinking that they knew more about the Constitution than a Harvard Law Professor… Scalia is an idiot and he is still bitter that he couldn’t convince the Chief Justice to break the law and go against the constitution; but the site of so many right-wing tea-bagging losers crying because they once again lost to the brilliant African American President is priceless…
I told them for months that there was no way that OBAMACARE would be struck down…
I was right, they were wrong, that’s the end of the story, LOL.
Why did that Harvard Law Professor say it wasn't a tax...and yet SCOTUS said otherwise? Only a left wing lunatic like yourself couldn't see the hypocrisy.

It is not just any tax either, it is a tax which targets the middle class. The lion share of paying for Obmaacare is falling on the middle class.

It is time for Mr. "you did not build that" to move on.

The only thing that matters is if the Supreme Court says its Constitutional… tax or no tax; mandate or not… is President Obama’s signature piece of legislation Constitutional?

YES IT IS!!!!!!!!!!

You are about to find out that is not the only thing important. That if you get something contentious passed running all over the wishes of a large enough group of people they will set you strait at the next election.

I want this Obamacare monstrosity repealed, not because we don't need a change, we do, but because this bill ignores the reasons why and will fail because of it. We don't need to overhaul our healthcare system only how we pay for it.

We need to take the government out of healthcare not increase its involvement. We need a voucher system for the poor and elderly and we need to ban employer sponsored healthcare.

Deeming it a "tax" just made it easier to repeal once the horrific Obama Orwellian Nightmare is finally OVER.
