Skip to comments.Obama issues stern language on Supreme Court health care decision (Sit down Napoleon!)
Posted on 04/02/2012 1:49:33 PM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway
President Obama on Monday issued stern language to the Supreme Court of the United States regarding his health care law, expressing confidence "Obamacare" will not be overturned by the nation's highest court. "I'm confident this will be upheld because it should be upheld," the president said Monday afternoon at a White House press conference that included âªCanadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon, who are attending the North American Leaders' Summit. The president said overturning the law would be "an unprecedented and extraordinary step" and compared the court's rejection of the law to "judicial activism."

It is not judicial activism to make laws conform to the Constitution.
Comparing him to Napoleon gives him way too much credit.
This is what you get when you elect a president who didn’t set foot on the American mainland till he was 18 years old.
Meanwhile, the drumbeat of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack continues to grow louder :
- regulate - control - destroy - Regulate - control - destroy - REgulate - control - destroy - REGulate - control - destroy - REGU
At least Napoleon didn’t sell out France to her enemies unlike the current dictator.
” Meanwhile, the drumbeat of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack continues to grow louder :

Meanwhile, an all out search for GOP members in the House & Senate proved fruitless.....apparently, there are no survivors.
Actually he needs to remain vocal regarding his complete contempt for the Supreme Court. Every speech should have him with megaphone in hand threatening and scolding SCOTUS for usurping his authority.
This simply could not be working out better. The Thug in Chief is forced to double down on a policy that easily could cost his party for years and years to come. The best thing and smartest thinkg for him to do right now is to shut up and let the Court kill this. If it did, then it woudl remove an issue from the Republican quiver. Instead, even if it is ruled unconstitutional, he looks like the egotistical, moron he is. Perfect!!! Keep talking you beautiful, magnificent, affirmative action gift!!
I didn’t know Napoleon was gay.
Can he be held in contempt of court for his behavior?
I cannot recall any president in history threatening the Supreme Court...This ass clown is incredible!
He knows his stupid healthcare bill his going up in flames. He’s just laying the ground work for mass demonstrations like Occupy Wallstreet...That’s what community organizers do, doncha know.
Their side may not be the only ones itching for mass demonstrations.
After seeing his performance today, I’m awfully curious if someone who worked in his administration, celebrated when the bill was passed and is now involved with the Court gave him a little indication to where the vote was heading.
The more articles on this I read the more I am becoming convinced...
-The Court voted Obamacare down on Friday
-Kagan immediately leaked the info to the WH
-Barry is crapping himself and throwing a temper tantrum
take it easy fubo... this ain’t boehner you’re talking to this time...
Based on his commentary...I’d say it’s a sure bet that the mandatory nature of the law has been tossed out. And I’d say it’s a pretty sure bet that entire law itself has been voted down in a 5-4 straw poll from Friday of last week.
Yes, I’d say that “someone” did come and hint the outcome of the Friday straw poll....mostly because of the extreme language used today. If you notice....every time that he gets pretty angry over something...he lets people know his personal opinion on things in a harsh way.
What he now has to do....is plan the August calendar carefully so that he’s out of town that week when the court decision is rendered.
“Kagan immediately leaked the info to the WH”...
I’m thinking that also as Obama becomes more hostile.
No no, he should just keep piling it on. That’s the way you get a completely independent branch of government to do exactly what you want, by calling them out as incompetent during the State of the Union address, then by browbeating them as an obvious and desperate campaign ploy.
Didn't the vote by the Supreme Court already take place? Wasn't there multiple stories last week about the necessity to maintain secrecy until the end of June?
“Wasn’t there multiple stories last week about the necessity to maintain secrecy until the end of June?”
Yes, you are correct but then again these are unusual times. Obama put Kagan in place for a reason.
I agree, he absolutely knows the outcome of the Supreme Court vote last Friday. He's mad and too much of a petulant narcissist to keep it under wraps. There is no doubt that it is Kagen. Anyone who would not recuse herself would have no problems blabbing to Obama.
“Can he be held in contempt of court for his behavior?”
Actually he should be in jail right now for turning the Constitution into a pretzel!
Kagan’s tenure on the court may be short if any conclusive evidence of her work on ObamaCare gets leaked to the public.
Leaks can be a two way street.
Constitutional scholar, my Aunt Fanny.
Did President Obama just insult the Supreme Court Justices with his "unelected" comment above?
Dear Barry-Barrack-Obama-Soetoro : Some third grade civic facts.
In the United States, the three branches of government are co-equal, and none is superior to any other.
It would be unseemly for one branch to criticise the other. And only ONE branch is Constitutionally empowered to decide if a law is Constitutional or not. Of course, that won't prevent the ambitious or the insane from attempting to change that relationship and render one branch useless. But that's the way it is.
By the way, even mostly ignorant citizens are aware that many "democratically" adopted laws have been found "unconstitutional," without being "judicial activism."
The most abused branch is the Executive, with the Legislative" a close second.
Where are the impeachment papers marker...
Franklin Roosevelt did after the SC declared the National Industrial Recovery Act unconstitutional.
Legislation was introduced into Congress to increase the number of Justices by 4 to 6 (thus stacking the Court with "friendlies".)
For various reasons, the legislation didn't go anywhere, but the Court thereafter became much tamer and more New Deal friendly.
The Supreme Court is appointed by the Congress which in turn has been selected by the voters on election day.
Senators were originally selected by states.
All of these are established by our Constitutional Republic.
We are a Republic established by the Constitution, not a democracy (mob rule)as many on the left would like.
I hope he keeps running that corrupt mouth! Maybe he’ll piss them off enough to make them do what he’s threatening them not to.
He is completely ignorant of our country, its history, and its institutions.
Let him run his mouth and show himself to be the foreigner he is.
The resident stressed that the judges are "unelected" and noted that the law was passed by a democratically elected Congress.
. . . . DID HE GET A LEAK?
zer0 TAKES SHOT AT COURT
(The) resident Warns Supremes, you are 'Unelected'...
Does a bear take a leak in the woods?
If I were Barry, I'd be very, VERY careful about avoiding use of the word "usurping" in any of his speeches. Ever.
Thanks for the ping, LucyT.
Because of the MSM's backing, he can do that. However, I gotta admit that 0b0z0 has the proverbial balls. Physically, he has none!
Can't say that much about the GOP-E, unfortunately.
Either way, I believe the groundwork is being laid for this very purpose.
...compared the court's rejection of the law to "judicial activism."
It isn't that either.
He can't even make salient points without a teleprompter.
Great post - except that it should read...
“The Supreme Court is appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate, both which in turn had been selected by the voters on election day.”
Congress doesn’t appoint Supreme Court Justices - the House specifically has zero role in that regard.
Elena told him within minutes after she knew what the vote was.
He lost 6-3 (conjecture).
He’s furious. He’s trying to intimidate them prior to the final decision.
Heck, Elena’s cellphone was probably sitting innocently on the table as the justices discussed and voted.
