April 2, 2012 Obama Warns Supreme Court Says Overturn of Health-Care Law Would Be 'Unprecedented, Extraordinary Step'
BY LAURA MECKLER AND CAROL E. LEE
President Barack Obama predicted Monday that the Supreme Court would uphold his signature health-care law and said that overturning it would be a prime example of judicial overreach.
It was a rare instance of a president laying out his own arguments about a Supreme Court case before the justices are set to reach their decision.
In his first public comments about the case since the justices took it up last week, Mr. Obama appeared to be framing the political argument he would make should he have to face voters this fall after a loss at the high court.
"For years, ...

The man is a tyrant. He already said he’s smarter than all his own policy people, and he thinks he knows better than all the rest of us.
You can’t blame him for being arrogant - look what he’s gotten away with so far!
The first half black communist non-citizen POTUS of the US. The whole thing is mind boggling but as I said - can you blame zero for thinking he’s better than everybody? He might not even belong in this country but there he is riding around on AF1.
For a guy who was touted as a “Constitutional Scholar”, he could use a refresher course or two...
As opposed to all those laws passed by minorities, that the SCOTUS could rule unconstitutional....
And the appointments made by the president, without the advice and consent of Congress, while congress was in session.
Pardon the slight correction.
I believe Kagan has already passed the bad news along to him, and he's reacting as would a spoiled brat who's not getting his way.
Hey, ****nozzle, the Supreme Court has FOR YEARS struck down shitty unconstitutional laws, so for yet another week I must proclaim from on high
God Almighty will this crumb bum ever get tired
Like the Supreme Court did with abortion?
The white arab doesn’t know much about the USA.
Overruled. He is setting up his argument and looking for a GOP fall guy.
A little concept known as checks and balances seems alien to Great Leader.
Comrade Obama says: “We don’t need no steenkin’ Constitution.”
Obama: “. . . the kind of action that many conservatives for years have criticized as overreaching “judicial activism.”
“. . . unprecedented act”
So now he is redefining what “judicial activism” and “unprecedented” is. At least Bill Clinton limited his redefinitions to sex.
The Court “finding” a right to abortion in the Constitution was true judicial activism. The federal judges in California nullifying election outcomes regarding illegal immigration and same-sex marriage - that’s true judicial activism.
The DOJ suing the state of Arizona and a federal judge putting on hold a law passed by the same state to protect its borders - something the federal government is supposed to do, but doesn’t - that’s judicial activism.
The DOJ saying it won’t prosecute acts of voter intimidation committed by minorities - that’s judicial activism.
“Unprecedented?!!” Just because the Congress passes a law automatically means the law is constitutional??
Why are there not articles of impeachment being drawn up against this President who is refusing to enforce the law and protect the Constitution? Who flagrantly says he will not protect our borders and citizens from threats and intimidation - who is trying to silence opposition - who refuses to stop a private political group - the “new” Black Panthers - from issuing a $10,000 reward on a private citizen being kidnapped - dead or alive?
This rant, “The Supreme Court is over-stepped its bounds”, is the template for the election if Obamacare is struck down. We must be ready to counter Obama and the DNC’s talking points on this.
If he doesn't like the rules he should go play dictator somewhere else.
Did he? Did he really take the oath of office, on record?
His latest SCOTUS threatening whinings are and will be viewed by clear thinking justices as foretelling what a partial ruling would entail: If they come up with a partial ruling, which I don't for a minute now think they will, it would be fraught with "negotiations" by zer0's four representatives on the court as to the pieces he wants to keep. That said, the clear thinking justices will throw the whole POS out, if not just to avoid any and all further Executive Activism/Meddling.
Brings back happy memories of when Obama, the smartest human being ever, screwed up taking the oath of office from Justice Roberts. You can tell he hates Justice Roberts for ruining his historical big moment.
Even the doofus George W. Bush aced it-— TWICE.
Jeez, it’s not like they’re even looking at the whole 2,000 page monstrosity. They’re only concerned with one little aspect of that entire POS bill and it’s completely precedented.
Doubt you are right...but on the other hand this could be his Hail Mary pass... only it won’t fly since he isn’t even close to being a Christian.
When Obama orders a Happy Meal it’s “unprecedented”.
Bump! Well stated.
Looks like Venezuela may have a vacancy since the current Dic - tator is not long for the world.
