Skip to comments.Rush Limbaugh: Lawless Regime to Ignore Ruling
Posted on 02/02/2011 9:22:35 AM PST by opentalk
RUSH: It appears, ladies and gentlemen, the regime is just going to ignore the judge's ruling. We go now to... Polito.. "What's the administration gonna do?"
CUMMINGS: I think the administration is just going to move forward and hope for the best and hope that they get the ruling that they argue they deserve. Clearly this judge in Florida went further than anyone else did, and basically put the entire issue of the law now before the Supreme Court once the case gets there. But the Supreme Court would have had the ability to review the whole law anyway. So whether these negative rulings are narrow or broad doesn't really change the process that this issue is on, and that is resolution in the Supreme Court.
RUSH: Right. Well, but it does. See this is the key, and this is where, as I mentioned earlier, any one of the 26 attorney generals who have filed suit can move now and ask for an immediate ruling from Judge Vinson. The minute the signal is made that the regime is gonna ignore his ruling, somebody needs to consult him again, and that's what this sounds like. Well, you know, they're just gonna keep going 'cause everybody knows it's gonna go to the Supreme Court anyway. So we'll just wait until he gets there. In the meantime, they're just gonna move forward. They're just going to move forward on all of this. It doesn't surprise me. Frankly, it's what I expected from them. This is an increasingly lawless administration anyway. Ignoring the judiciary.

Laws are whatever they make up. Laws do not apply to them.
The walls are closing in on the obama regime, I would not be surprised at a coup attempt in the near future...at least before the 2012 elections. Cornered rats are dangerous.
If they continue, I hope the states go back to the Judge and push the issue.
That means that under the ruling, the law is void and cannot be implemented from this point forward. The Administrations legal remedy is to seek a stay of the ruling pending appeal. It cannot just defy a federal court ruling. If it tries, the plaintiffs should go to court for the injunction and/or seek an order of contempt against the administration. Pretending that the ruling doesnt change anything when it unequivocally does, would be both a petulant and extra-legal approach to governance.
It can, but wouldn't it be up to the Congress to punish the Executive branch for doing so? Andrew Jackson comes to mind.
Would that course of action not make their legal attempts more difficult and increase risk of loss? I would think they were smarter than that.
Liberals always defy logic and intellectual consistency.
The same liberals who think a federal mandate for health insurance is constitutional and get peeved when a federal judge chucks it out for it being unconstitutional are the same liberals who fought tooth and nail to get a federal judge to chuck out the Arizona anti-illegal alien law.
Put simply, liberals hate federal judges who defy their statism and love federal judges who legislate from the bench.
The fact is when you got more than 25 states suing the federal government over Obamacare because it infringes on 10th Amendment rights, you know something is wrong anyway.
I’m sure Illinois will provide him with his favorable ruling.
