President Obama, employing his strongest language to date on the Supreme Court review of the federal health care overhaul, cautioned the court Monday against overturning the law -- while repeatedly saying he's "confident" it will be upheld.

Since when does a president lobby the SCOTIS. They are independent branches. I hope they send his letter back saying that they will not consider it.
The latest contretemps have certainly focussed my mind. This “threat display” by Il Douche is the last straw. I will hold my nose and vote for Romney. He just couldn’t hate America as badly as Il Douche.
LOL look at that mug on Hussein! Reminds me of that movie Braveheart where King Richard says “Who is this person who speaks as if I need his advice?”
...and create a readily-identifiable, outnumbered and outgunned mass target of opportunity? Probably not...
Well, President Jackson disobeyed the Supreme Court.
I have no doubt that Obama would, he is a fascist. It is grounds for immediate impeachment.
When the Cherokee finally won their rights back in the Supreme Court case of Worcester v. Georgia, Jackson was quoted saying, “John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it!” Jackson blatantly disregarded the court ruling that named the Cherokee people a domestic dependant nation and bribed a tribal leader that led his tribe to present-day Oklahoma. Andrew Jackson chose to blatantly disobey a ruling set by the Supreme Court, and acting rashly and dishonestly towards the Native Americans in a way that was unprecedented for. The disobeying of a Supreme Court ruling should have been grounds for immediate impeachment. How any one man, worse yet the president, could break such a large law that had such an open impact is in today’s society unbelievable. Yet Jackson did this exact thing, he blatantly disobeyed the ruling set by the Supreme Court to accomplish his own personal vendetta against the Native Americans.
“Good news. This indicates he did not get a secret phone call from the SC saying they voted to keep Obama care. If anything the call was bad news for him.”
The vote against might be very close to unanimous as a result of this Communist would-be dictator’s arrogance-he might even have gotten Kagan pissed off enough to vote against;)
There you go again with the reason and logic. You need to quit doing that before you make me change my mind.
All kidding aside, you're making better points about how a Romney presidency would compare to a second Obama term, than anyone I've encountered in the last 12 months.
I'm afraid that I can't argue with you, though I detest Mitt.
It’s one thing for an early 19th Century president to use military force against a defenseless Indian tribe in defiance of a Court order. It would be quite another thing to force Congress to fund an overturned law for a gigantic bureaucratic system don’t you think? I suspect even a few Democrats would blanch at the thought of passing funding for a program deemed illegal.
Wonder how dear leader will react if the Supreme Court goes against him. We all know how FDR handled rejection.
The white arab must be threatening their families.
I fear you are right.
“Obama is only an expert in con law, not constitutional law.”
Yep...I'm afraid you're right. ..and likely why he had no hesitation in making those statements. The guy has no fear of constitutional restraints....or of the system of checks and balances. They are simply rumple strips he navigates around or thru.
What goes around, comes around. . .
Then lets THROW OUT those two YOU DIDN'T ELECT.
Good one, and so true.
Both Breyer and [prior Justice] Souter joined the 7-2 majority in Bush v. Gore, citing 14th Amendment Equal Protection violations. Breyer is still on the Court, and he might go with the conservatives - citing any number of things [compulsory contract, no authority under the Commerce Clause, etc.] ...
'Specially given Obama's comments today - saying that a vote against Obamacare is unprecedented and judicial activism ...
Obama seems to have forgotten Marbury v. Madison ...
The way it works is that they take an initial vote, then majority opinion and dissenting opinion [if any] writing is assigned. These are then passed among the justices to read and they are free to change their minds at a later date.
However, there is a drop dead date after which they cannot change their minds ...
I would hope you have the gift of prophecy..........sounds good to me.
