Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Latest Health Scare Has Obama World Very Worried

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

How you know the latest health scare for Ruth Bader Ginsburg is probably very serious. – Within minutes after initial media reports about the latest cancer treatments for 86 year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg went public, former Obama senior advisor David Axelrod issued the following messages on his Twitter feed:

Now, if you think this is Axelrod expressing his sincere concern about Justice Ginsburg’s health, think again. Note that said expression got only afterthought mention in his first tweet. I mean, “all good wishes to Justice Ginsburg of course. But this could be a prelude to an absolutely titanic political battle” is kind of like when, after you’d gotten a bad grade in 6th-grade math class, you mother used to say “I love you, but you’ve got to do better.” Your mother, like Axelrod, was mainly concerned about the part that came after the “but.”

No, this is a loyal, very senior operative in Obama World issuing a shot across the bow. It’s a clear warning to both President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that, should they attempt to fill a vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the street violence and character assassination efforts mounted against Brett Kavanaugh last year will seem like a walk in the park. Actually, it isn’t a mere threat: It’s a promise.

Those peremptory tweets from someone as senior as Axelrod are also a clear indication that he believes that Ginsburg’s condition is truly serious, despite yesterday’s media reports that her doctors had given her a “clean bill of health.”

But that is not what those doctors said, not at all. Here’s the actual release the Supreme Court sent out yesterday on the matter:

The key phrase is “no further treatment is needed at this time.” For someone who, like Ginsburg, has been bravely surviving repeated cancer scares for 20 years, that could mean a lot of different things.

It is quite likely that Axelrod knows what Ginsburg’s situation truly is. His rush to get out that opening shot across the bow tells us that he is very concerned indeed.

We should all pray for Justice Ginsburg’s health, and also pray for our country should her health fail.

That is all.
