Quote by Ron Fournier
Republicans would have preferred the court overturn the health care bill, an act that would have underscored Obama's biggest liability - the perception among voters, including those who like and trust him, that he has been ineffective.
This quote suggests that Republicans would have been pleased if the court had struck down the health care bill, as it would have highlighted Obama's perceived weakness as a leader. It implies that even among voters who have positive feelings towards Obama, there is a perception that he has not been successful in implementing his policies. The desire for the bill's override reflects Republicans' intentions to use this perception to their advantage in rallying support against Obama.
I'm the one person who wears the words 'hustle, loyalty, respect' on my T-shirts and merchandise. My audience is children. It's very flattering to see a kid wear your T-shirt; it's even more flattering to have a dad come up to you and say, 'I watch you with my kid. Keep doing what you're doing. You're a role model for my son.'
