Ezra Klein on an Obama Second Term

Ezra Klein writes on a Washington Post blog about what we could expect from a second term of the Obama administration. Klein begins by referencing Mitt Romney's warning to the NRA Annual Meeting - that Obama would be "unrestrained by the demands of reelection" and would "remake" the Supreme Court in a second term.  All it took for Klein to dismiss that real threat was Obama's jokes at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

But make no mistake, if Obama's health care monstrosity is tossed by the Court in June, his only legacy will be what changes he can make to the Supreme Court. In a second term it is highly likely Obama will have two additional appointments. A third would give him the opportunity to shift the balance of the court from a constitutionalist majority to a statist majority that could last for a generation. So while media apologists like Ezra Klein work to make a possible second Obama term nothing to fear, gun owners and lovers of Liberty have much to fear from a second Obama term and his pen ready to sign any executive order he can conceive.
