COMMENTARY | President Barack Obama attended an Associated Press luncheon Tuesday during which he took several questions. Naturally, the topic of the warning he issued to the Supreme Court on Monday arose.
Just as a cornered badger will lash out, Obama, clearly on the ropes, lashed out at the Supreme Court on Monday. That is what the Court does -- it overturns unconstitutional laws passed by Congress. Even AP Chairman Dean Singleton pointed this out in a question at the luncheon.
Also, there was never a "strong majority" or the Democrats would not have had to use parliamentary tricks and downright conniving to pass the bill. A strong majority would mean the bill sailed through.
"We have not seen a Court overturn a law that was passed by Congress on an economic issue, like health care, that I think most people would clearly consider commerce -- a law like that has not been overturned at least since Lochner. Right? So we're going back to the '30s, pre New Deal," Obama said.
This from a self-proclaimed constitutional professor. But this is like the guy who said, "I'm not a doctor but I play one on TV." Obama is really only a lecturer not a professor as reported by FactCheck.org.
First, Lochner refers to Lochner v New York, a 1905 case dealing with working hours of a baker and the attempt to regulate them under the guise of health.
Unless he is referring to the "Lochner Era" from 1890 to 1937. But this is not "pre-New Deal." The New Deal began in 1932 during the nomination acceptance speech of tyrannical left wing hero Franklin Roosevelt.
The Supreme Court has ruled on several commerce-related issues "since Lochner," where government tried to use the commerce clause to expand its powers, including

Where's the transcripts?
Come on, Liberals, what's the big secret? Let's see them.
Open and Honest. Right?
They mis-spelled "skunk".
Obamacare's days are numbered and by proxy Obama's time as president. The end of both cannot come soon enough.
That man will be getting a visit soon. LOL
That’s rather like saying the Wicked Witch of the West isn’t too fond of buckets of water.
I’m surprised to find an article like this on Yahoo news.
We are starting to see green shoots.
I have great faith that one day we will see all the records on everything concerning this clown. College records will probably be nothing but another bunch of zeros to add to the zeros hes accumulated thus far. That is, IF in fact he actually attended a college. I have my doubts. Nothing about him adds up to anything more than one more damn ZERO.
Looks like they stole it from Levin.
Obama was an A-A cover sheet for the “real” professors at Univ of Chicago.
Like many others, he’s coasted on that paper-thin accomplishment for years. Because of his ethnicity and career choice, no one has ever called him on it.
Let’s hope not. We should, though, say a prayer for the writer’s safety.
I’ve got a feeling that things are about to get very interesting very soon because some brave souls are finally, for whatever reason, speaking truthfully about this administration.
Perhaps the threats got to some who know better than to negotiate with a thug.
I think it’s a gesture done by Muslims with the intent to insult their enemies. Could be wrong, though. ;-)
(Keeping the insult thing in mind, look at his eyes in the pic you posted. Might be something to it.)
