Obama: Supreme Court Striking Down Obamacare Would Be Judicial Activism
RealClearPolitics ^ | 4/2/2012 | The so-called President

Posted on 04/02/2012 12:38:26 PM PDT by mojito

President Obama preemptively slammed the Supreme Court as a bunch of "unelected group of people" who will have turned to "judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint" if they decide to strike down his signature legislative achievement, the healthcare reform act.

Obama was speaking at a trilateral event with the Prime Minister of Canada and President of Mexico.

Obama touted the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as "a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically-elected Congress."

Odumbo once again proves he knows nothing about our constitution nor what the founders were trying to achieve.

He is as dangerous to this country as any terrorist or any of the communist nations who want our destruction because we are always showing up their sorry butts.

Anyone who voted for Odumbo is either a racist, stupid or the enemy within.

The American people soundly rejected the progressives (aka Marxist communists) under Wilson and we need to soundly reject Odumbo and everyone of his vile followers but I am very concerned Odumbo’s people will continue to support him and some of the usual suspects will do everything to vote early and vote often.

—Does 0bama opine that all laws thus passed by Congress are therefore defacto Constitutional?—

It is as though he forgets why we have three branches of government.

I see Jug-ears is sticking to the Alinsky model...blame others for what you are guilty of doing.

Judicial and executive ACTIVISION has been his total modus operandi since he took office.

obama is as mentally disturbed as Al Gore.

I agree with you and I think he is giving them a subtle threat of what they will get if they don’t change their minds.

I don’t recall in at least the past 35 years any president commenting on not only recent, but even unannounced Supreme Court rulings. Ubama does so routinely. Ubama is not your normal president.

The accidental president, Ubama, is one very sick POS.
Pray for America.
Send the turd Ubama swirling down the toilet of history in November.

—How to read the tea leaves on this.....

I am 100% certain that right after the vote was taken Friday, Elena Kagan leaked the results to Barry. So he already knows what the Court has done.

Whether he is setting the stage for it passing or preparing the ground for trouble if it’s scuttled is hard to say.—

If what you say is true I don’t think it would be hard to say at all. I think that if they were voting to let the mandate stand he would not try to bitch slap them like this. It would be counter productive. I honestly think the guy is a crybaby and he will not finish his term due to personal meltdown.

More stupid!

I guess Obama wants to rewrite history and throw out all cases in which the Supreme Court overturned unconstitutional laws that were made laws by democratically elected Congresscritters and presidents.

Did he really graduate from law school and teach constitutional law for YEARS?

And on this subject you are correct... we don’t know how it wll end yet. You can bet a whole lot though that one of his appointees gave him the skinny just as soon as it could.

It makes perfect sense if you first disregard the Constitution as the basis of all law.

Bingo... Only in the world of a liberal is striking down an obviously unconstitutional law “judicial activism”.

Maybe that's why he won't release his transcripts...?
