President Obama, employing his strongest language to date on the Supreme Court review of the federal health care overhaul, cautioned the court Monday against overturning the law -- while repeatedly saying he's "confident" it will be upheld.

“The president, adopting what he described as the language of conservatives who fret about judicial activism, questioned how an “unelected group of people” could overturn a law approved by Congress.”
It’s called Checks and Balances President Doofus.
Constitutional scholar my a$$.
Just more arrogance from the dictator of the banana republic...
Hussein despises the Constitution.
Good gravy he’s a moron. “Unelected” Supreme Court-so everything they’ve ever ruled on is now null and void? No more Roe v Wade!
It’s called checks and balances, Jacka$$!
I’m glad he’s taken this tact and wants to attack the supreme court. Now he does sound like a dictator. “How dare the court strike down laws in accordance with the constitution that my liberal congress passed with almost 60 votes in the senate? What do we need this branch of the government for?”
Keep at it. He must have left Jarret at home with Barney Frank. There is no stopping him. His tele is on strike.
I do hope we don’t get to the “Battle of Athens” scenario, but some scenarios are worse.
Seems our only hope is for the Supreme Court to Bit@h slap the executive branch.
Good news. This indicates he did not get a secret phone call from the SC saying they voted to keep Obama care. If anything the call was bad news for him.
Is this the same guy who set up a system of Czars?
So Barry is calling the Supreme Court justices an “unelected group of people”?
What about Kagan and Sotomayer, his “unelected” picks? Are they included?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Liberals like Obama have no problem with unelected liberals thwarting the laws or striking things down, or bypassing Congress, when it works for them.
He’s either making certain they will strike it down, or he’s gearing up to use it as a major election theme for 2012.
Just for the sake of irony, we can keep in mind that no Confederate law was struck down by their pretended supreme court. Jeff Davis never got around to appointing anyone to that body.
I hope the SC is paying attention to his repeated threatening language. I can’t believe this would-be thugocrat is in the Oval Office. He is single-handedly making the case for “anyone but Obama”. I can’t believe I’m saying this, as much as I despise Romney. Threats to the SC are my line in the sand.
Because the Supreme Court's constitutional responsibility is to overturn any overreach by the elected branch of government
He's doing this on purpose. Even the wording is very specific.
We’ll lead this Pharaoh to race into the Red Sea of Election Day.
