Obama’s Reaction to Health Care Ruling

Karl Rove, former senior adviser and deputy chief of staff to President George W. Bush, examines President Obama's possible reactions to the Supreme Court health care ruling. Rove claims if President Obama respected the court's decision, whatever it may be, he “could pivot to the center and regain some of the high ground he occupied in his 2008 campaign.” However, this appears unlikely as the president continues to caution the high court:
“Ultimately, I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress … [T]he biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism … this is a good example. And I’m pretty confident that this Court will recognize that and not take that step.”
