Last week, the Obama reelect effort was handed a setback. A federal judge ruled that Florida could resume its efforts to purge voter rolls of illegal aliens.
RUSH: What happened here basically is that Justice Roberts stretched the limits to avoid being accused of activism.
RUSH: Look, I know it's a fundraising opportunity. But to agree it's "not the job of the court to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices"? Really?

RUSH: This is all about this administration trying to eliminate all of the choices that we all have for health insurance now. Be it employer-based, be it self-purchase, be it wherever we find it, they want those choices limited.
RUSH: Roberts said the court's role is to find any way possible, without limits, to uphold unconstitutional law. That's why I'm sick. This is the mother of all judicial activism!
RUSH: I guess the simplest way I can express this is that this is not a faculty lounge debate to me. This is about something really basic. The freedom and liberty of the American people, which was not protected, upheld, or advanced yesterday.
RUSH: Do you think anybody would say, "Wow, how insensitive. He didn't care. He just flew over," like they did with Bush? I doubt it. They'd talk about how thoughtful he was and selfless.
RUSH: In order for the wiretap applications to be approved, the judge has to be told about the techniques being used (and the program, basically) and the Department of Justice has to provide that information to the judge. So we've got to be led to believe here that there may be some rogue people inside the DOJ running a program that Holder didn't know about? I don't know. It's a stretch.
