an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law

Does Obama think that the Court has never overturned a law before? They've just been rubber-stamping everything for 200+ years?

It was probably Elana Kagan, since she should have recused herself since she was a cheerleader for ObamadoesntCare Law when it passed, and was starting the defense as Solicitor General when she got nominated to be SCOTUS justice #9.
It could be all 4 of the justices since I think they would do this.

it’s no longer mentioned how he bribed Senators to pass that law, with the Louisiana Purchase, and the Cornhusker Kickback, and that fish bribe in the Sunshine State?

I agree.

If the word was that it had passed, he’d be all spouting about how we have been fortunate for all these years to follow the wisdom of the SC.

Sounds like it has failed and he’s rallying the troops...

I also expect that if it gets struck down, the votes will add up to 8, because Kagen, realizing her vote would not change the balance, recuses herself before the final determination. A purely political move designed to save her behind.

I’m kinda surprised a federal marshall hasn’t shown up at her door yet. She is PLAINLY in violation of federal law.

I wouldn't be surprised if he had the court bugged.

I wonder what "Professor" 0bama thought the Court did, or was supposed to do? The scary thing is that he espoused his philosophy to impressionable students - 0bama clones!

Not much of an understanding of the Constitution or out entire system of judicial review from this “Constitutional law professor.”

This is why we have a rule of law of negative liberties - to keep power grabbing politicians from treading on our basic rights.

of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress...

Now if Bush had told a whopper like this, the press would be all over him. A strong majority?

These people have no shame.

Obama warned that health care for millions of people was at stake

Healthcare for 300 million people already is at stake for the benefit of the so-called 50 million people who don't have it. This law wasn't written with the intent of making healthcare affordable for EVERYONE.

Strong majority of Congress??

It was thr most contentious vote in the last fifty years done through bribes while tens of thousands of Americans protested outside.

Another good summary article:

Timing is everything. Obama’s threats to the court only started AFTER they had made their preliminary ruling on Friday. It’s obvious that he waited for the ruling, not wanting to interfere with a possible positive result (from his viewpoint). But once it the ruling went the other way, it became time to start to ‘influence’ the court.

Don’t be surprised if one of the conservatives has an ‘accident’ or his son or grand son goes ‘missing’.

The college Constitution professor is DEAD WRONG on the Constitution. The scenario he describes is not reality. Bribes to Congressional members, parliamentary parlor tricks, and one body “deeming” that the other passed bills are not what the framers had in mind. He obviously didn't study the concept of “checks and balances”, or dismissed it along with his disdain of the Constitution as a “charter of negative liberties”. This guy is evil, anti-American, and treasonous.

Ultimately, I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress," Obama said.

I saw him say this on a clip on my local news The written quote here missed all his umms and pauses. It took him about 20 seconds to say that. He was off prompter, and was stuttering and stammering to beat the band.

If we are to believe the AGW idiots, who brag about how, in their infallible crystal ball, polar bears are going to need sun block, some time in the next 3 months...

Ask them if it's going to rain, tomorrow, though, and you are SOL. They don't have a problem with this.

Let us all pray that he gets his comeuppance.

not to take the "extraordinary" and "unprecedented" step

Huh. You mean like the "extraordinary" and "unprecedented" steps that were taken to pass it?

Perhaps we need a little flashback to Pelosi (Speaker of the House at the time):

“We will go through the gate. If the gate is closed, we will go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we will pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we will parachute in. But we are going to get health care reform passed for the American people for their own personal health and economic security and for the important role that it will play in reducing the deficit.”

But, you had to laugh when Obama fumbled his admonition and began to say “overturn”, but stopped at “over.....uh, uh, “.
This during his rose garden intrusion on the separation of powers.

Obama noted that for years, conservatives had been arguing that the "unelected" Supreme Court should not adopt an activist approach by making rather than interpreting law, and held up the health legislation as an example

Declaring an Unconstitutional Law as Unconstitutional is NOT activism and is NOT making law.

That would mean that if we struck down nothing in this legislation but the -- what you call the corn husker kickback, okay, we find that to violate the constitutional proscription of venality, okay?"

He also doesn’t mention how many of those democratically elected Representatives and Senators were kicked out by the voters for voting for that law. So many Congressmen lost their jobs that the House changed parties. I wouldn’t call that a “strong” majority!

One of the main and accepted theories of the Court is that it WILL NOT look at malfeasance or corruption or anything else in the legislature over whether a law is good or not.

I know, I know. It is outrageous and I was boiling mad when I read it, but that’s the way it is.

I might be able to find the reference, but I have probably 5 million pages of legal references on my machines, so give me 20 minutes or so...

Yup. The Supremes know about it. They are all aware.

I may be dreaming, but I would not be surprised at all if this is close to unanimous. Possibly 7-2 against.

It also would not surprise me if we get a verdict way before June. The reason? The Supremes will say that they do not want it to be perceived as being political, so they want to release it as far ahead of the election as possible.

It is absolutely unthinkable for me that the 4 Commies in the Court, would not have been in direct communication with the WH throughout the entire process.

Watch for stage 2: The demonstrations that are being organised by the WH, will move on to protesting the loss of all those free drugs in their future.

Of course, his Divine Holiness will be the only one that will be able to quell the violence. This of course, is on the condition that he is re-elected, and is able to ignore the ruling.

Dick Morris (dickmorris.com) is saying that if Obungacare goes down, Bork (Obunga) is cooked enough to stick a fork in and forget about, that would leave him with absolutely nothing resembling any sort of an accomplishment in three+ years and there’d be no way to spin that.

1) SCOTUS overturns parts of the Election reform Law. Obamugabe publicly insults that decision in his State-of-the-Union address.

2) SCOTUS rules in favor of the LCMS in hiring practices, citing the 1st Amendment and “right of free association”. Obamugabe dictates a health-care “punishment” reagrding contraception services to all religious bodies.

3) Obamugabe just “threatened” to ignore an adverse ruling regarding ObamaCare.

How do YOU think the vote went? I’m saying 6-3 that includes Kennedy and Breyer.
