Obama's top attorney tells the court, "Nevermind."
Orange Punch, The Orange County Register political commentary blog ^ | 4-5-2012 | Mark Landsbaum

Posted on 04/05/2012 1:53:47 PM PDT by landsbaum

When our president, a, ahem, constitutional scholar, berated the court for having the audacity to consider overturning an unconstitutional law, he implied justices should think twice before doing such an unprecedented thing.

Of course, Barack Obama was revealing himself to be anything but a constitutional scholar.

A mere appellate court judge got so miffed he ordered the Obama Administration to submit a three-page, single-spaced paper today explaining how judicial review is something the court has the authority to do. So, Eric Holder, who currently holds the position of Attorney General in the admnistration, submitted the letter.

Here’s what Holder had to say: “The power of the courts to review the constitutionality of legislation is beyond dispute.” . . .

He also ended the letter with the non-sequitur “The President’s remarks were fully consistent with the principles described herein.”

To wit: “2+2=5”.

That's all he had to say? Or do you expect a blog hit to reveal the rest?

It's not as if anyone couldn't look it up. You just want
blog hits for the ripped-off information you found. Shame on you.

“In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable—what then?”
- George Orwell, _1984_

Holder: “and that America has 57 states, exactly like what the president said.”

Can't read it, it's excerpted by the very "author" of it.

If it were posted here in it's entirety I would have the option of not reading it.

As it is, NOBODY can read it without providing Scumwalliter a blog hit.

Get it?

I read that and figured it must be you! What I would like to know is how do you find these so quickly (post #4)? Do you have a special decoder ring set for “blog”, sixth-sense, blog radar, ....?

These blog pimps DEMAND that FR excerpt their material.

Then, they pimp their material here, a sentence at a time, every day, on our bandwidth and donations.

While FR begs for more donations.

F them.

I’m serious.

F them.

I hope they rot in hell.

I’ve had it with pimps.

“ordered the Obama Administration to submit a three-page, single-spaced paper”

That was at least three pages, I believe. Which I think was nothing but a dog and pony show, though it is funny. The only problem I have is that the judge is free to specify format—if he wants it single-spaced, let him have it—but I don’t understand why he gets to dictate a minimum length. He’s not their law professor; if the administration can explain itself in less than three pages, so much the better. Lord knows too many words have been wasted on the law.

Honestly, take it easy.

I'm not going to anyone's blog, certainly not as a result of a link to somewhere I've never heard of.

I've seen enough blogs to know they're worthless 99% of the time. I'm sure many others feel the same.

You know, you really need to give this a rest. Your obssession over blogs wrecks the flow of countless threads.

As hard as it might be for you to get this, you need to understand it simply doesn't matter.

And you also need to understand that Free Republic itself was sued for exactly the same thing you screech about bloggers - the various news sources called FR a blog that was stealing their information.

AND - what did FR do about it? Made click-throughs with partial articles.

SO what do you screech about? Bloggers with click-throughs from partial articles.

It's a fricking click, from one free website through another free website to another free website (and donations aren't the point here, because they aren't mandatory).

Besides, who are you to say that someone writing as a blogger doesn't have just as valid information or opinions as the MSM news sources you're so fervent about discriminating on behalf of? Most of FR's comments are precisely baut the shoddy or dishonest reporting of the MSM!

So DROP IT already, and find another hobby.

Really? Let's have us a look at the history:

Sure looks like a whole mess of self-promotion to me.

How about you?

No comments, just excerpting his own stuff. How much have you donated to FR over the years?

Do you LIKE the fact that this dog turd is advertising himself on YOUR dime?

That steaming bag of Holder couldn't help himself. He could have just left it at, "yes, the Supremes rule over Constitutionality." and left it at that, but nooooOOOOOOoooo, he had to prattle on about how it is the tradition that anything that Congress passes is assumed to be Constitutional.

I hope the judge make's the steaming pile of Eric write the whole thing over again.

He is a troll. I busted him in the past for not ever making a donation, but driving many good Freepers away. He was finally shamed into making a small donation. Check his posting history. I do not understand how we allowed a fifth column here to take hold.
