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.

He’s having a tantrum because his “signature piece”, the healthcare abomination, is about to go down in flames.
I agree with you that he could slip right back in for a second term, and if that happens, God help us!
IIRC, he didn’t have enough votes to get his power grab passed. He had to do a lot dirty deals to get enough elected representatives hold their noses and pass it.
But he also said that he is confident that Obamcare will be upheld. It may be that he got the news that the initial vote was in favor to upheld it and now he is just showing himself to be the big tough leader by warning the Supreme Court not to overturn his Obamacare and when they announce it is upheld he would tell his stupid base that the supreme court was scared of him the tough leader.
That smirking sissy puts the bitch in slap.
Alito will like that.
The Chicago way
Striking down a law is not judicial activism.
A Court REWRITING A LAW is Judicial activism as they are not the Legislature.
A Court Re-Interpreting a law to “discover” a right that never existed in reality, is judicial activism. Such as the Roe v. Wade decision. Such as the Kelo decision.
Hey Barry...What about those groups of unelected Czar’s!
In what way? How is his wording very specific?
Just curious what you base the statement upon?
We know he is an evil socialist and not stupid, wrong but not stupid.
As my friend suggested, I should have left it at: FDR.. Does anyone know if the first Roosevelt had a middle name, been researching but come up empty?
His ignorance on the nature of the SC is astounding. But perhaps he is not ignorant, just banking on the fact that there is a portion of the electorate that KNOW NOTHING about our form of government.
...and he’ll chase after us, running straight into the Red Sea of November Election Day. 8^)
Tactically, that has to be the dumbest move he could have made.
If anything, it is likely to blow up in his face because even the Liberal Justices are going to have to be worried about the independence of the Supreme Court and it’s position as a coequal branch of government.

I believe your assessment is the correct one.
Maybe 40 years ago a 7th grader could tell you what the Supreme Court is supposed to do but probably not today. Frankly, I doubt very many kids with a high school diploma could tell you.
Yes, MOST of the possible scenarios for the outcome of this are worse. I HOPE WE DO get The Battle of Athens, because I think that's probably the least bad of the quasi-civil-war scenarios. It's over and done with quick.
Math and facts don’t matter, it is about propaganda. It is about whipping his voting class into a fenzy. The truth and math don’t matter.
