Wolf: In Contempt of Court and Common Sense

Dr. Milton Wolf has a new OpEd in the 2/16/2011 Washington Times, "In contempt of court and common sense".

In particular, he notes that the Obama administration piously talks about "respecting the Constitution" when they can score political points against their opponents -- but they conveniently forget about constitutionality when it works against them. The trend is much broader than health care, as Dr. Wolf documents.

In other words, the rule of law is just another "inconvenient truth" for them.

The big question is whether the Congressional Republicans will step up and defund ObamaCare, as they should -- or if they'll compromise, as they've done far too often in the past.

(Victor Davis Hanson makes some similar points about the convenient amnesia of the Left in his 2/13/2011 PJM piece, "Goodbye to All That -- 2004-2007".)
