There's a lot of anxiety these days as we wait for the U.S. SupremeCourt to issue its decision on President Obama's health care law.
Apparently,Senate candidate Richard Mourdock wanted to be ready. The IndianaRepublican's campaign yesterday uploaded videos to YouTube of hisdifferent reactions to the decision, including cheering the law'sdemise. The videos were taken down.
Here's one example of Mourdock's canned reactions, with a reference to his Democratic opponent:
"BarackObama and Congressman Joe Donnelly are going to try and have biggovernment make health care even more expensive. That may not be theirintention, but that is what will happen," says Mourdock, Indiana's statetreasurer, in one of the uploaded clips.
Mourdockmade a splash last month when he defeated veteran GOP Sen. RichardLugar in a primary. Indiana Democrats pounced on Mourdock's videos,saying they showed how much the GOP candidate wants to score politicalpoints.
Mourdock spokesman Chris Conner said, "As the Boy Scouts say, 'Be prepared.' "
The Supreme Court decision is likely to come out next week before the justices adjourn for their summer break.
