Skip to comments.White House in damage control over Obama Supreme Court remarks (No Comments Allowed!)
Posted on 04/04/2012 11:55:15 PM PDT by Islander7
The White House was forced on the defensive on Wednesday as it sought to explain controversial remarks President Barack Obama made earlier in the week about the Supreme Court's review of his signature healthcare reform law.
"What he did was make an unremarkable observation about 80 years of Supreme Court history," Carney told reporters during a White House briefing dominated by the topic.

There are no comments on this and the comment section is CLOSED. LOL! Seems Rooters has gotten an ear full about this.
Yeah, okay. Your bad.
Hey, no comments!
The semi-Kenyan intruder is headed for a Supreme Court smackdown (we can only hope)
That's a lie! Throw this article out.
He is the shirt on my back, this obama defines me. Change. Peace. Kill whitey, wait no what?
The Supremes didn't care too much for Slick Willie's antics either.
I was for the Constitution and independence of the Supreme Court before I was against it.
We hope and pray !
I can barely wait to read Scalia's opinion, provided he adds his.
The five Catholic, male Justices have to come through on the side of our Constitution.
Lord, hear our prayer.
And Moochelle says, “Can’t we all get along?”
a ‘lecturer’ on the Constitution should’ve remembered that there are three branches of American government for a reason. It’s not just The Oval against a ‘do-nothing’ Congress (which he continues to play shell games with), it’s not just him and his double-speak to appease his supporters (who he also continues to play shell games with), but lookie-see, it’s the ‘do-something’ Supremes and federal judges, who have been sitting back and watching it all from afar - as they are sworn to do. Looks like the Judicials are about to pull the reins. This should be fun. or not.
Robot squirrrels battle it out with rattlesnakes. On /.
Pray too!..... and pray Jug Ears ends up soon (Nov 6th 2012) on the scrapheap of American electoral history
Onyx, Obamacare is history. If you listened to the questions of the conservative judges they were against it. The Solicitor General had a very difficult time defending this.
You can tell less from the questions - then you can from Obama’s response re the vote on Friday.
He immediately went full scale war. He lost. He would never have done thta if he won the vote.
The comment about fundamentally changing the relationship between the government and the people was telling; I hope it is an omen.
I disagree. I could tell which way they were leaning. The Broccoli question(that is what I call it) by Scalia was very telling. The way Obama has lashed back is very telling that he is concerned that his bill is going down in flames
I agree with you.
Even if that happens, the O-ministration will portray the defeat as some kind of “win” for itself and America while dyed-in-the-wool loyalists adopt the same twisted logic.
Any student who attended his class should demand their money back. . . .
This entire story completely ignored by the Obama butt kissers in Florida, still working the race card with the Sharpton lynch mob.
yep he will say the unelected elite have struck down the will of the people...
what a lying POS
Yeah, it was SO unremarkable that obama had to use the term "unprecedented" to grab our attention. It certainly worked.
That Carney has a tough job trying to make a liar look honest.
Of course those 80 years were unremarkable in how they let Congress do anything under the commerce clause. What’s unprecedented is a bill so egregious that the court would have to strike it down.
Though while true, that’s not what I think the Obama meant. He’s bbling his way toward tyranny.
As the worst, most anti-America President ever elected!
One thing we can do as conservatives is make sure all Americans understand the basis for "America."
To stay free you have to keep fighting for it because there is too much apathy and power mongering out there! To our demise there are Americans who do not even understand the basic foundation of what the IDEA OF AMERICA is because we have allowed a political force of "causes" to undermine our education.
The elites teach America is government, when the opposite is true. America is We The People!
Actually he will use it as campaign fodder to show how the system doesn't work. 0bama is a dyed-in-the-wool community activist/organizer/agitator first and foremost! We must not forget that. If there is one thing 0bama knows how to do well when the chips are down against him, it is agitate the community and he has the biggest bully pit to complete that from...the podium at the White House.
What Americans need to realize is that the community organizer is not about being against the man, against the injustices of the systems etc., the organizers are not there to give you liberty. On the contrary, they are there to take it away from you and all the while making you blind to your own demise.
They wanted communities to own houses and they got the regulations to do that with the CRA. What they did not tell you is they also would hang a heavy talisman around your neck. You could not get credit cards and the organizers brought the fairness of credit cards to you to ease your life's burden, but it again came with another talisman that hangs over your head. Again the organizers brought you food, water, heat, AC and education in our ever increasing financial world to which you celebrated...until you found you could find no job to repay another talisman. To cast your lot with community organizers is to cast your lot with debt and "the man" who enslaves you.
The only thing an organizer knows how to do is create debt, burden, and enslavement...he knows not the meaning nor the taste freedom and liberty. These very ideas scare him, frighten him for a man of freedom, makes the community organizer inconsequential.
I think Judge Napolitano stated it best that Obama is dangerously close to totalitarianism.
The Kenyan wants to rule by executive decree and believes that Congress and the Supreme Court and unneccessary and only there to rubber stamp his decisions.
If that happens, it will be the first time since “O” was inaugurated that the SYSTEM has actually worked according to design!!
“The way Obama has lashed back is very telling that he is concerned that his bill is going down in flames”
Speaking of telling? Picture this: late night phone call from or to Kagan after the first vote. You think she wouldn’t leak? After not recusing?
Any wonder the liberal world is aflame in outrage? The wounded animal shrieks.
I don’t believe he ever taught anything. First, he was an invited lecturer. Wouldn’t you think at least one student in a class he taught would have come forward in some situation to say they were taught by him? Crickets. I believe he was paid as a lecturer but didn’t teach ever. I bet he was puffing on a doobie somewhwere during this time...and “community organizing”. Also, wouldn’t you think he would have written something during his purported illustrious career as a “professor”? What a empty suit.
Carney's job is like explaining to a woman what her husband really meant when he answered "yes" to the dress making her butt look big question.
Y’all gotta read Sowell today.
He flat out calls Binky a liar,
and says he prefers liars like Nixon,
because you could tell when he was lying,
and the press actually investigated the lies
instead of covering up for him.
-——a lecturer on the Constitution———
I have not seen his lectures.
Perhaps he told the students about the backwardness and inapplicability of old strictures to a modern progressive and utopian society. Perhaps he lectured that the federal government should be freed from the restraints and being bogged down by the states.
Perhaps the recent anti congress and anti court speeches are lifted directly from his earlier lectures
This was so appropos, I did not know whether to laugh or cry.
Yesterday, a thread from the LA Times editorial; today, Reuters.
Obama opened a can of worms.
It is bad when even his libs friends in the press can’t defend the Constitutional Law Prof’s position on a Constitutional Law issue.
And both Press Sec Carney and Atty Gen Holder are out trying to do damage control.
Yahoo! is allowing comments
I like the one from Kay: “Carney reminds me of the guys at a circus following the elephants with a shovel”
And this kind of talk from a supposed professor of Constitutional law.
I despise Barack Obama. One and out, God willing.
Political Word Games (Sowell: Obama is simply lying)
The first time I say Carney, I figured they put him up there to spin Obama's lies because he looked like some angelic choir boy. Would someone like that lie to you? Of course not!
A Lecturer is a low paid, non tenure track teacher, hired by colleges to teach classes that full-time tenure track faculty are unavailable to cover. They can be on year-to-year or multi-year contracts, but for whatever reasons, the colleges have chosen not to offer them regular tenure-track status.
“If there is one thing 0bama knows how to do well when the chips are down against him, it is agitate the community...”
I’d like to see him try that on the golf course...after he’s been voted out of office, that is.
I wonder if he’ll be invited to join as an honorary member at Augusta National (The Masters)....Nahh!
Likewise. He looks like a high school kid.
I'm sure they're out there demanding some 0bama Money.
And getting it! ! ! ! !
If they got their law degrees they’re raking it in ... 0bama or no 0bama. I’m sure 0bummer showed them how to connect the tap between Treasury and Rezko types and how to install a siphon for themselves on that pipeline that won’t get noticed. See? he does know about pipelines after all.
I agree with you
