Day629 Saturday 05/19/12

ran 3.2 miles 
It is still early, but these maps Karl Rove reports every couple weeks are as interesting as they are trivial to look at. I'm ready for the three debates we've been promised. They are still far out on the horizon of 2012, but they will be epic. There are so many unanswered questions that Barack Obama has never been asked, which can only be asked in the uninhibited, vulnerable arena of debate. These debates will hold a lot of weight and both of these guys will bring everything they have with them and leave it all on the field once its over. 

Watching Barack Obama defend his record, which he does not brag about, and listening to him discuss contraception issues, gay marriage, and all of the other tertiary social topics that hold no gravity next to what is really important like the price of gas, the rate of unemployment, and the ridiculous amount of debt that has been accumulated under his watch, just to name a few. 

In June we get the Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare. That is going to be a huge game-changer regardless of which way the vote goes. If the justices deem the whole law, or even just the mandate, unconstitutional then Conservatives will be castigated as cruel, insensitive brutes that took "your" health care away. If the law is judged to be constitutional then precedent will have been set for the federal government to interfere with and mandate anything in your life that you consider important to you and take pride in being able to make your own decisions about. Who is the winner here? Both sides of the aisle are anxiously preparing for either outcome and, regardless of which outcome it is, both sides have an equally strong approach to dealing with whatever fallout ensues. There is no right or wrong answer; only damage control and spin. 

134.6 miles to go. 

Here is what happened one year ago on Day264.
