Skip to comments.Hacks dressed in black now guard the Constitution (Moron Dowd barf)

WASHINGTON How dare President Barack Obama brush back the Supreme Court like that?
Has this former constitutional law instructor no respect for our venerable system of checks and balances?
Nah. And why should he?
This court, cosseted behind white marble pillars, out of reach of TV, accountable to no one once they give the last word, is well on its way to becoming one of the most divisive in modern U.S. history.
It has squandered even the semi-illusion that it is the unbiased, honest guardian of the Constitution. It is run by hacks dressed up in black robes.
All the fancy diplomas of the conservative majority cannot disguise the fact that its reasoning on the most important decisions affecting Americans seems shaped more by a political handbook than a legal brief.
Obama never should have waded into the health care thicket back when the economy was teetering. He should have listened to David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel and not Michelle.
His failure from the start to sell his plan or even explain it is bizarre and self-destructive. And certainly he needs a more persuasive solicitor general.
Still, it was stunning to hear Antonin Scalia talking like a Senate whip during oral arguments last week on the constitutionality of the health care law. He mused on how difficult it would be to get 60 votes to repeal parts of the act, explaining why the court may just throw out the whole thing. And, sounding like a campaign's oppo-research guy, he batted around politically charged terms like "Cornhusker Kickback," referring to a sweetheart deal that isn't even in the law.
If he's so brilliant, why is he drawing a risible parallel between buying health care and buying broccoli?
The justices want to be above it all, beyond reproach or criticism.

Dowdy is into pure projection.
AKA “The Rules”. Short version-Michael Douglas dated her after his last divorce and she thought she had hit the “in crowd”, then he dumped her for CZJ and the rest is history!
Dowd is a perfect example of how ridiculous “established opinion” has become. I love the CZJ photos, of course, but the bottom line is that the NY Times, WashPo, etc have been trafficking in nonsense for years. MoDo was once revered. She’s now just a parody of herself, and she was always a cartoon to begin with.
I agree that Kagen should have recused herself.
Now THAT makes sense! (Both the explaination and the fact Michael Douglas dumped Maureen Dowd for Catherine Zeta Jones)
...I don’t recognize this country anymore. :(:(:(:(:(
Will these attacks on the Supreme Court by the press and the President make them more likely or less likely to toss out the law?
OK ALREADY! I’m absolutely overcome by the new pic’s of CZJ!
Well done. I’m sure our fellow Freepers will await the next Moron Dowd post and your outstanding pic’s! You da’man!
By now you have the message that any post of Moron Dowd demands pictures of CZJ. Just one of those “rules” on the Freeper site that are learned after the your first viewing of a Moron Dowd article. PackRat really did a great effort
in this case.
This should erase any doubt that Obamacare lost the vote on Friday and that the decision was leaked.
You can not be more connected on the left than a NYC Times columnist. She would not dare attack the court and risk alienating a swing vote unless she already new the early vote. Her editor would not allow her to. The White House would be holding down this criticism of the court in general in the press rather than leading it.
Funny how the libs didn’t mind judicial activism by the courts when it came to Griswold, or Roe v Wade. They only don’t like it when a decision goes against them.
Obama’s reign is a turd stain on the Constitution.
