Elections in America do make a difference. President Obama often says he inherited the worse economy since the Great Depression. President Bush gets the blame for this and more.
Now the Obama administration has something else to blame on Bush. The Health Care law was upheld by the Supreme Court by a 5-4 vote. And the swing vote was Justice Roberts. And who appointed him? That would be President Bush.
Here is the real power of the presidency. Appointments made to the Supreme Court outlive the President. We feel the influence for years to come. I am often asked whom I will vote for in November. Will it be the one who affirms same sex marriage or the one who denies the deity of Jesus?
My answer is simple in this case. Vote for the man whom you believe will make appointments that match your convictions to the bench. After the terms of Barak Obama and/or Mitt Romney some person they would appoint to the court will still be making judgments. We saw the influence of Reagan, Clinton and Bush I and II this week.
