Skip to comments.Obama takes a shot at Supreme Court over healthcare (Obama's trying to intimidate the SCOTUS)
Posted on 04/02/2012 2:41:10 PM PDT by tobyhill
President Barack Obama took an opening shot at conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, warning that a rejection of his sweeping healthcare law would be an act of "judicial activism" that Republicans say they abhor.
Obama, a Democrat, had not commented publicly on the Supreme Court's deliberations since it heard arguments for and against the healthcare law last week.
Known as the "Affordable Care Act" or "Obamacare," the measure to expand health insurance for millions of Americans is considered Obama's signature domestic policy achievement.
A rejection by the court would be a big blow to Obama going into the November 6 presidential election.
Republican presidential candidates, who are vying to take on Obama in November elections, have promised to repeal the law if one of them wins the White House.
Obama's advisers say they have not prepared contingency plans if the measure fails. But the president -- who expressed confidence that the court would uphold the law -- made clear how he would address it on the campaign trail if the court strikes down the law.

No need to go all 'sneer quote' on me. I'm just trying to straighten out a simple mis-communciation.
I do and I also am aware of Obama's recent appearance of a collusion with Russian's Medvedev. This half-Black, half-American is a snake-in-the-grass, America needs to be rid of his kind.
No biggie. I just hate seeing liberal propaganda seeping its way into conservatives' knowledge base. It's false data, and should be rooted out, wherever it's found.
I totally agree with you that Obama is a puppet who's been molded and shaped by hidden and powerful masters. You're absolutely right about his hatred of traditional America, and everything our country stands for. It comes across in nearly everything he says and does.
In any event, hes mostly a puppet. Id love to see a thorough expose of whos been moving him along all these decades. Id guess its way more than just Soros and Ayers.
You've definitely got to figure in the radical black supremacist element and his Islamic ties.
Commie, Muslim, racist, narcissist. Who would have ever thought that we'd see that unlikely combination in a US president? It still boggles the mind.
Well, good day to you too.
That was my thinking, as well.
But, perhaps we are over-thinking things.
No sarcasm, no problem, Deep breath. I do not exist. That’s cool.
And a good morning to you sir.
And a good morning to you sir.
Maybe it is time for Judicial Activism and the majority of the Supreme Court to come out and tell the public that Dear Leader (and Nancy P. and Harry R) were all liars.
If the President will not be civil toward the Supreme Court, why should the Court be limited to civil discourse with Dear Leader?
You know what cracks me up? That everyone is acting like O should have know better being a Constitional scholar and all.
But who among us actually believes he even read the bill much less scoured it for Constitutional adherence?
The only judicial activism is Kagan not recusing herself.
They can change their vote.
Skittles has spoken.
A "Constitutional Scholar" by whose definition? Usually those classes are just arguing about what the words mean without taking the words at face value....other opinions and we know what Obama's opinion is about the United States Constitution.
Thuggish towards the Court like his hero FDR? I’m shocked. /s
Does he not realize this is likely to backfire on him? Just like his public scolding of them during his State of the Union Speech. People don’t take kindly to being bullied.
Narcissism. Obama believes he is the one.
Well, I go back and forth. I think one of them have given him a heads up. He’s acting like he knows he lost. But, he usually acts one way and is already planning strategy for the opposite direction. He’s planning to spring some kind of trap. That’s my convoluted theory. LOL
