Barack Obama Fires Shot Across the SCOTUS Bow … The Supreme Court Will Be Guilty of “Judicial Activism” If They Dare Strike Down Obamacare

 

Has President Barack Obama have no shame, no “The One” takes shot at intimidating the SCOTUS?

After having passed Obamacare with backroom deal, Corn Husker kickbacks and against the will of the people along a Democrat party partisan vote, Barack Obama now fires a preemptive shot across the bow of the Supreme Court calling it “judicial activism” if they dare strike down Obamacare. How desperate is Obama is he has to sink to such depths? Now the SCOTUS is on Obama’s enemies list. Does Obama understand that he is not a dictator and that the SCOTUS is one of the three branches of government put in place as a checks and balance when a President and Congress act in an UN-Constitutional manner? I guess not. Obama is already setting up the SCOTUS as the evil “unelected group of people” that would dare strike down Obamacare. However, as referenced at the NRO what else could Obama do after the disastrous defense of Obamacare in the SCOTUS last week?

The president spoke at length about the case at a joint press conference with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. 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.

“I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress,” Obama said.

Really Mr. President,  an “unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress”? Unprecedented? Who is this guy kidding?  As Doug Ross states, who finds it curious that the arrogant Barack Obama and self-professed Constitutional scholar doesn’t know that the Supreme Court has struck down more than 1,300 laws since the founding of the Republic?

Its one thing to question a decision of the Supreme Court, its quite another thing for a sitting President to question the credibility of the SCOTUS prior to their final decision on such on over-reaching law that would force Americans under the “commerce clause” to buy a commercial product.

Who does not find it ironic and completely ridiculous that Barack Obama would use “judicial activism” as some type of defense when the LEFT loves such activism when it suits their views? President Obama, you may want to brush up on the doctrine of “judicial review”.

      Barry thinks he can jawbone the outcome of his worthless, unconstitutional health care bill. There are probably three or more dozen parts of this legislation that fail the constitutional test. Twenty-seven hundred pages of lawless gobble-de-goop should be reason enough to overturn this legislation.

      He also needs to remember that he made several members of the court angry during his state of the union address.

      The Constitution established three equal parts to the government Barry. Maybe your professor at Harvard failed to make you understand.

      If you ever thought you could be a good constitutional lawyer, you have failed. You and some other Harvard graduates of progressive persuasion have demonstrated that you believe the Constitution is an old worthless document that can be modified with Congressional legislation leaving “the people” out of the loop. The people have the ultimate power Barry, not you.

      Somebody wasn’t paying attention in high school civics class when the discussion of division of powers was explained. Tsk, tsk! BO, you are not the CEO of Burger King and this isn’t the home of “Have it your way” government.

      Wasn’t O supposedly a Prof. who taught Constitutional law?

      Actually, the Supreme Court will prove it is not owned by the socialist party…and is doing its job re: checks and balances.

      Every time I see something new Obozo has said or done and think he cannot top that (or should I say lower himself further), I get another surprise.

      that whale Kagan was rumored to have leaked info to her boy Obama. she should be banned from our judicial system. there will be no justice with a democrat presiding.

      Jayne, as I understand it Zero was basically a “student teacher”. His title was “senior lecturer”. A talent he seems to hold dear today as he likes to lecture the American People and other country’s leaders with his blabber.

      exactly right. Apparently President Pull-Ups thinks the SCOTUS is just there to fill seats at his State of the Union address.

      Junior High students know that SCOTUS was developed by our fore-fathers to provide a check on the legislative power. But O has no use for the US Constitution.

      Obama is hammering on HIS interpretation of original intent, which is only a theory of law, not a discipline the SCOTUS must follow. In any event, read this…”In the case of US Federal Law, law is made by majority vote in two chambers, and is then signed by the President. 536 people are therefore potentially involved in this process, and not one of them needs to share the same intentions as any other of them in order to play their part in ratifying the bill. They need only vote; their vote will count the same if they share the same intent as their colleagues, if they do not share the intent of their colleagues, and indeed, if they have no particular intention, and are voting solely because their party whip handed them a note saying “be on the Senate floor at 9:36pm and say ‘Aye’.” Their vote will count even if they are falling-down drunk or if they have not even read the bill under consideration.[6]” The way that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi strong-armed in the 11th hour, leaving little time for possibly hung-over paragons of virtue and wisdom to “think” much less be wise..now that, unfortunately is the only thing about this episode that is NOT unprecedented.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_intent#Problems

      Strike it DOWN.

      And if Bambi is not re-elected…Michelle and her family/friends will have to rely on their own pocketbooks (or generosity of the bumpkins who want them around) to pay for their vacations. Hey, so long as it’s no longer out of OUR tax dollars I don’t care.

      You know what? If Obama was 1/2 a president I wouldn’t be so concerned about the vacations. Being he’s in the negative numbers as a president, it irks me dearly.

      what you all think about the decision that if you are arrested (for anything) the cops are allowed to strip search you?

      #5, Barry didn’t go to high school in the US. That is a fact. He went to muslim school in Jakarta all his young life, but he is not a Muslim, nooooo…

    18. Dolf on April 5th, 2012 8:44 am

      Did he went to a Madrasah or a public school?

      (from wiki)
      After her divorce, Dunham married Indonesian Lolo Soetoro, who was attending college in Hawaii. When Suharto, a military leader in Soetoro’s home country, came to power in 1967, all Indonesian students studying abroad were recalled, and the family moved to the Menteng neighborhood of Jakarta.[4][17] From ages six to ten, Obama attended local schools in Jakarta, including Besuki Public School and St. Francis of Assisi School.[18]

      @16:
      In 1971, Obama returned to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents, Madelyn and Stanley Armour Dunham, and with the aid of a scholarship attended Punahou School, a private college preparatory school, from fifth grade until his graduation from high school in 1979.

      “In 1790, the first Congress, which was packed with framers, required all ship owners to provide medical insurance for seamen; in 1798, Congress also required seamen to buy hospital insurance for themselves. In 1792, Congress enacted a law mandating that all able-bodied citizens obtain a firearm.”
      The Supreme Court’s power and prestige waxed during the Marshall Court (1801–1835). Under Marshall, the Court established the principle of judicial review, including specifying itself as the supreme expositor of the Constitution.
      So the founders of this country required people to buy insurance long before the Supremes gave themselves “judicial review”
