The current headline on Drudge points out the obvious. Was there ever really any doubt that one of Obama’s appointees would leak their decision to him as soon as it was made?

Another major story that the press and pundits refused to cover on 2008.

I don’t even think he was talking to the Court. He’s setting up his propaganda campaign that only he can save you from a meanspirited conservative court that aims to take away your health insurance (and kill babies).

Wait...I thought he was FOR that?

I think he’s preparing to run against the conservative court if the court rules against him. If not for a runaway conservative court, he could have taken care of all of us. Re-elect him and he will make everything wonderful!

They have to know this thing is likely to be thrown out. Its blatantly unconstitutional. Even Nazi Pelosi says the Dems are willing to accept the decision of the Court which means she sees the writing on the wall.

***I can’t remember a time that the President of the United States of America has threaten the US Supreme Court.***

I’m thinking of Andrew Jackson who said...”The Supreme Court has made it’s decision! Now let’s see them enforce it!”

When the SCOTUS ruled against the removal of the Cherokees and other tribes to Indian Territory (Oklahoma).

Or when FDR tried to increase the number of judges on the Court who would then side with him. I think he wanted 15 judges.

I don’t know that this demonizing the courts would be wise for the little foreign Marxist...if you get my drift. Suddenly someone might have standing.

Friday, I heard Rush say that no one would know how the vote went until June. I thought BS, Kagan will spill the beans to BO on the way back to her office. If he makes any moves towards the SC, she needs to questioned on whether or not she notified anyone on how the vote went because unquestionably, she would be the leak and needs to be held accountable.

(And she till looks like the guy on King of Queens.)

Doesn’t the Pretender-in-Chief understand that he has no standing or authority over the Supreme Court?

FDR packed the court in the 30’s after failing in his try to expand the number of justices.

FDR tried to by appointing 3 more judges to the court, but even the Speaker of the House(DEM) was appalled. I had to laugh when Bush 43 was accused by the Democraps of “packing the court” ,when he was only exercising his right to fill a vacancy.

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.

Grrr.

Sorry and thanks for the correction. It is Breyer I am thinking of. There’s probably not much chance he will join Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, Alito and Kennedy. I don’t see any of the women voting to uphold the Constitution.

“Worried” implies he doesn’t know the outcome, that Elena didn’t tell him the results of the initial vote.

I’m guessing it’s 6-3 against him, and he’s mad and trying to intimidate them before the release of the verdict in June.
