Questions the worthless MSM(Media) should be asking Obama on Judicial Activism and Restraint
4/5/2012 | sickoflibs

Posted on 04/05/2012 10:06:56 AM PDT by sickoflibs

Obama recent statements on the US Supreme Court Judicial Review:

Obama: “ I'd just remind conservative commentators that for years what we've heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law,” Obama said. “Well, this is a good example. And I'm pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.
...... and.......
Obama: “’I am confident,” announced the president of the United States, “that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.

Of course a number of those ‘democratically elected Congress’ members that passed it were bribed (with special $$$ for their states) with the taxpayer money to get their votes : Nelson , Sanders, Landrieu and others. And don’t forget that Justice Kagan wrote the Obama-care legal defense that she is ruling on.
If we had an independent watch-dog media they would be asking the Obama the following questions on his views on Judicial Activism and Restraint:

Should the ‘unelected justices’ overturn The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”?

Should the ‘unelected justices’ re-write the state’s traditional marriage Laws that have been constitutional for hundreds of years?

Should the ‘unelected justices’ overturn Arizona’s immigration enforcement laws passed by a majority of the state legislators?

Should the ‘unelected justices’ overturn states voter ID laws passed by a majority of the state legislators in various states?

Would the so called ‘conservative justices’ ruling to overturn Obama-care sit better with you if they first wrote the law-suit against it before being appointed to the court to rule on it (just as justice Kagan wrote your defense)?

I am sure there are many more examples I can’t put my finger on this morning. Obama doesn’t believe half of what he says and I wrote the above to illustrate it.

The next time Bull Kagan makes a public appearance she must be asked directly if she leaked the tentative vote of the court.

I'm surprised Rush and others have not replayed her “Broccoli” testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

They’re not smart enough to ask intelligent questions.....law, finance, taxes, spending cost/benefits . . too much work for under-educated journOlists.

They’d rather stir the pot and ratings with “global warming” homeosexuality, abortion and race/gender PC. Must easier for them to understand and gets better ratings from the unwashed still watching the SRM.

Obama’s has become unstable, increasingly so, that alone should alarm and outrage America. He is uncontrollable, megalomanical and dangerously hate-filled with attacks against America. How much more will it take to begin the outcries and the deluge of letters and emails to the media, the Congress and all the outlets that must be addressed with this maniac in the Whitehouse. The threat of being called a racist have kept him “safe” from the shouts of patriotic Americans, can you imagine a white President destroying our Country the way Obama has?

I fear they do have a clue, and don’t give a dam.

You aren’t a coward. I now believe the Republicans in the House & Senate are afraid of attacking a black POTUS.....even if it means he will destroy our country.I have NEVER seen them so timid. They pass up one opportunity after another. Now they are even voting with him!!

Obama has a historically bad economy, rising prices and huge deficits to run on and get returned to office. He has NO other possibility NOW but to go negative now and destroy Republicans, this should be no surprise.

I warn you not to underestimate him or to discount the polls showing Republicans looking worse than him.

Back in 2010 when the posts were flying left and right that Obama would not run and would resign and didn't care if he got re-elected I was one of the few ringing the warning bells, that he would use a Republican 2010 victory to turn the tables on them. And last year 2011 he kicked the crap out of them even worse than I thought. They walked into every trap, and I mam not optimistic about how the Birth Control fight went down this year either.

I have serious doubts about Romney's ability to take him on.

No,No, No... don't look behind the curtain at the REAL votes passing Obama stuff, instead look at the symbolic ones on the ‘plans’ that they are proposing that come with no legislative bill framework to be law.

The Ryan-plan B specifies lots of specific tax cuts and unspecified spending cuts he says the W+M committee can come up with those specific cuts, no point thinking about those now.

The revolution is over. It's hunker down in the bunker time for Republicans, with commander Romney leading the retreat.

With every vote they give Obama legitimacy. They add to his legacy.

Who do they represent?

Bush-bots still exist here.

If they didn’t see the handwriting on the wall when he signed the Patriot Act, they only have themselves to blame.

I will give him credit for stopping airplanes flying into American buildings and killing innocent people.

I don’t believe that an honest appraisal of his record will be as bad as the liberals want it to be, but it still isn’t good enough. We always deserve better.

****************

Don't ya wish we had a CONSERVATIVE MEDIA OUTLET on our side?

Fox News has become a little squishy on conservative issues. They are no longer the fire-breathing conservatives we once respected.

That being said ... isn't there a conservative "sugar daddy" who could launch a REAL conservative media outlet (TV or cable, since we already have radio and web outlets) that would hold FIRMLY to conservative positions? Maybe with classes on the Constitution and plenty of Judge Napolitano?

I feel like we're wandering in the liberal wilderness without a star to guide us, while the libs have Ed Shultz & Co.

I dont have the romantic recollection on this that you do.

2009 to 2010 FNC tolerated the Tea Party, Beck, etc to use against Democrats. After the 2010 election FNC found principled conservatives like them about as useful as Democrats (MSNBC too) found Cindy Sheenan after the 2006 election. She never got invited back again ansd Beck got canned from FNC.

FNC is the Republican channel and MSNBC is the Democrat channel. Both will tolerate their activist base as long as they are useful to the party, and not critical of it.

I still like Neil Cavuto alot. Brett Baur does a good job too.

You know, when I read the text I thought it sounded weak, but when I heard the audio, McConnell sounded like he was saying the word "respectfully" in a kind of mocking tone.

Of course, I would not trust McConnell in all cases, but in this instance I think he said the right thing.

Kagan should remove herself from this proceeding - - conflict of interest... she needs to be asked about that...
