Obama warns 'unelected' Supreme Court against striking down health law
FoxNews.com ^ | April 2, 2012

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.

I’ve said this on many threads. We will be hearing all summer long,”They took your healthcare! They took your healthcare!”
More pitting citizens against one another.

BINGO!!! We have a winner! It is about whipping up his class to riot as in the Martin case as in you name it.

Threatens?

Once again, he is way over his pay grade.

Is he really so stupid as to think that Justice Roberts doesn't get the warning and ignores it.

Of course Kag & Soto are probably so proud of him - backing them and trashing the Constitution at the same time. What courage, what strength!

Ginsburg has already stated her views on the US Constitution - old goat.

He’s preaching to his ignorant base. “Yeah! Unelected! What nerve!”

I worry that all this unconstitutional action and rhetoric will end up casting the actual Constitution in a bad light when it prohibits the handouts that some people want.

Is this spoken by one who himself has failed to provide convincing evidence that he is not an unconstitutional imposter as POTUS?

As more and more laws in this country go unenforced and less and less constitutional adherence is applied to our governance, the less the “rule of law” will mean.

If the President can assume power of influence over the court (not that he has but seems to think so), if Black Panthers can put a bounty on a citizens head, if our government can force us to buy something or enter into and enforceable contract, the rule of law is dead or near to it. When civil cases start to be won using a defense case based on precedence set by our government, the law is dead.

Want Proof?

Explain to me what Illegal immigration really means anymore. It’s not apparently illegal to be here without permission, documentation, etc. It’s just illegal to get here? That is, we only enforce the law if you get caught getting here illegally. Otherwise you can vote, collect welfare, unemployment, etc. all without fear. Just don’t get caught anywhere in the US trying to get into the US.

When will some nutcase NeoNazi put a public bounty on the head of the Black Panthers? Will there then be a prosecution? They can’t now. They would have to arrest both that launched the bounties. Right?

I agree, my knee-jerk reaction was to judge his words as if a normal non-malevolent person had said them, plus it lowers my blood pressure to call him a moron. But he knows full well what he's doing, it fits the overall pattern.

Obama had hs minions go out and threaten SC. I have no doubt that obama was made aware of las Friday’s SC vote. Kagan was his solicitor general....a political appointment...she was on the phone to obama within 2 minutes after the meeting broke up.

If it was 5-4 for striking it down before, it’s 7-2 now. SCOTUS does NOT like to be told how to rule.

After this stunt I wouldn’t be surprised if Obamacare goes down 7-2.

We know who the “2” would be.

IIRC, he didn’t have enough votes to get his power grab passed. He had to do a lot dirty deals to get enough elected representatives hold their noses and pass it.


Michigan Democrat Rep. Bart Stupak and 12 other House Democrats joined President Obama for the signing of an executive order ensuring that existing limits on the federal funding of abortion remain in place under the new health care reform law. March, 2010.

Kennedy will. Breyer or Ginsburg, unlikely, but slim chance they might. Sotofatass, or Boatload Kagan, they’re just happy to be there.

Math and facts don’t matter, it is about propaganda. It is about whipping his voting class into a fenzy. The truth and math don’t matter.

I think he went a bit off the reservation with this one, though. Politico is reporting the story with a lot of quotes, except they didn't quote his "strong majority" statement. It's an interesting bit of editing:

"Overturning the law would be “an unprecedented, extraordinary step” since it was passed by a majority of members in the House and Senate,” he said. “I just remind conservative commentators that for years we’ve heard that the biggest problem is judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint. That a group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law. Well, this is a good example. And I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.”

They knew the "strong" was false, so they conveniently edited that out so their favorite canddiate didn't look like he'd said something so stupid.

7-2 would be sweet; I’m betting on this.
