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”.
