  • Obama asserts presidential powers he once spoke out against

    President Barack Obama is starting to channel his inner Cheney. For years, Obama talked about the limits on presidential power. Now, driven either by principle or political expediency, he's working to build and maintain a powerful presidency that pushes the edge of what it can do, while often telling Congress and the courts to mind their own business. In the last week alone, he refused a subpoena to share Justice Department emails with Congress, told courts he doesn't have to justify his claimed power to assassinate suspected terrorists, and decided to stop deporting certain illegal immigrants even though Congress has...

    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 ‪Canadian 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." "For years...

    April 2, 2012 Obama Warns Supreme Court Says Overturn of Health-Care Law Would Be 'Unprecedented, Extraordinary Step' BY LAURA MECKLER AND CAROL E. LEE President Barack Obama predicted Monday that the Supreme Court would uphold his signature health-care law and said that overturning it would be a prime example of judicial overreach. It was a rare instance of a president laying out his own arguments about a Supreme Court case before the justices are set to reach their decision. In his first public comments about the case since the justices took it up last week, Mr. Obama appeared to be...

    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...

    As Obama takes his 6th vacation, this year (and it's only August), he has certainly expended great measures of time to reflect upon his job running the country. Considering his ample ego, I suspect that he is very proud of the destruction he has, thus far, brought to bear against the United States of America and We-the-People. As well as overtly directed at the American people, Obama must also smirk and laugh exuberantly to himself at his uncanny ability to get away with destroying much — if not most — of the foundation of the American system. Again, no one...
