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.

The lawless, belligerent black man coercing the Highest Court in the Nation, publicly, and
getting away with that too. Impeachment is option 1. Three good generals is option 2.

no way would Kagan do that IMHO she is a one minded view and going by what she said by trying to help the defense in their presentation I;d say she made her mind up way before she heard thew arguments for and against.

"I'm 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.

This Motherhugging Kenyan Socialist Muslim Marxist Crack Smoking D**k Sucker (also known as President Barack Obama) knows full well that Judicial Review, which is their precise function, has been the job of the Supreme Court since the country was founded.

Unprecedented???!? This is the use of Hitler's Big Lie premise!!!

Let me give you a feew precedents to the Supreme Court "overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress"

Supreme Court Overturns Campaign Finance Law

Marbury v. Madison was the first instance in which a law passed by Congress was declared unconstitutional. The decision greatly expanded the power of the Court by establishing its right to overturn acts of Congress, a power not explicitly granted by the Constitution. Initially the case involved Secretary of State James Madison, who refused to seat four judicial appointees although they had been confirmed by the Senate.

And that's just two examples. There are more.

Oh I'm with you. I didn't want to hear it either. But Obama is so very close to tossing our Constitution and revamping our beloved USA into the mold of Communism that he so desires, that ANYONE beside him at this point will be better for now.

Polly, I'm beginning to hear that view, although I must admit that I've shut it out for a long time now. I still detest Romney with a passion, but a few good folks around here are making a very logical case for him being the "lesser of two evils."

Only by that time, only some soon to be unemployed DC bureaucrats and a hoodie mob in Florida will be standing with him.

SCOTUS has no way to enforce the ruling and the regime knows it. They also know congress won't and basically can't act even if they tried. There are too many progressive moles in Congress to get justice and secure of form of government.

I agree, and this goes for everything we as Americans desire ...it really doesn't matter to this administration for they have no fear of Congress acting and they know they can control the populace....or use it to their advantage.

We are in far more than troubling times....it does seem the levers are pulled and the Obama train will continue to destroy this country as we've known it to be.

I do not see the election changing the trajectory....Romney certainly has no skills required to turn this ship...he'll simply put it on another tract but 'heading the same direction' as the Globalist Elitist desire. He's one of them.

The only chance we had was with Newt and they've all but destroyed his chances....a slim chance at best.

Strong Majority my ass !!! IIRC, the vote in the House was 219-212, or about 50.3% !!!

It actually passed by two votes, since 218 are needed at a minimum.

Forgive me, but I don’t see where he “threatened” anything. He made an ass of himself, especially as a lawyer who should know better (I’m not a lawyer, btw), but what “threat” was there? What were the words he used that were “threatening” anyone?

If after this threat the USSC upholds this law, then America has officially become a dictatorial banana republic.

Excellent point. Many of those so called “progressive” types think of conservatives as being mentally inferior (my IQ’s over 150), which is, of course, to our advantage.

Here’s a link to a piece that was actually published in the New York Times, that scientifically refutes hateful claim going around when George W. Bush was in office, that he was a “moron.”

If you notice Obama labeled Ryan’s budget a “trojan horse”. This is an effort marginalize/negate language. I’m rubber, your glue, whatever you say... (you get the idea) These are the linguistic parlor games of the left targeted at his pea brained base.

Same here. Time for some not-so-civil disobedience.
