Jeffrey Toobin's Condition Worsens
March 28, 2012


RUSH: Here's Jeff Toobin, by the way.  He's in even worse shape today than he was yesterday.  Yesterday was a "train wreck", today it's a "plane wreck."  He was on CNN.  They didn't put him on with Wolf Blitzer.  I think Wolf needed smelling salts after yesterday.  So they put him on with Don Lemon, another anchor, who said, "You've been referring to the health care argument at the Supreme Court as a 'train wreck,' possibly now 'plane wreck,' saying the whole law is in jeopardy.  What's going on, Jeffrey?"

TOOBIN:  The question is: Does the whole law go?  And there are clearly people on that court -- Antonin Scalia and, uh, Justice Alito -- who think the whole law should go.  Chief Justice Roberts and certainly all the liberals were at least trying to keep alive the possibility that some of this 2,700-page law would stand. But, um, there is considerable sentiment on this court that it's -- it's just all one big package and, uhh, it needs to be gotten rid of altogether, which is a stunning turn of events.

RUSH:  Jeffrey, it is one big package: 2,700 pages!  You notice how surprised he is? He's genuinely, intellectually, IQ-wise surprised that anybody could find this thing objectionable.  He's literally bowled over.  He never considered that people he considers to be his intellectual equals would ever see this as anything other than utopia.  He really is beside himself, and he's not alone on the left.  "They might throw the whole thing out!"  No! But the question is: Jeffrey, where are you on the substance of this?  Do you even care?  Jeffrey, do you even know what the substance of this bill is?

Because as smart as you think you are, you ought to be among those who understand this thing is terrible for the United States of America.  I know you're looking at it as whether it's good or bad for Obama, but what about for the country?  Have you...? Jeffrey, have you looked at it?  Have any of you people really looked at this and do you understand exactly what a disaster in the making it is?  Have you ever asked yourselves why you're defending it? Why do you hope it's constitutional?  Is it so that Obama prevails?  Is that reason enough? We want 2,700 pages so Obama prevails?  What about the country? What about your own freedom?  Does it not matter to you, Jeffrey? That's what I don't understand about these people.
