White House Nut Dares SCOTUS To Strike Down ObamaCare

    President Barack Obama voiced confidence Monday that the Supreme Court will uphold his health care law in his first public remarks on the issue since the three days of oral arguments last week.

    In a rare instance of a president weighing in on a high court case in which the ruling has not yet been released, Obama suggested that the high court would be guilty of “judicial activism” if it overturned the law. He also argued that the justices should uphold the individual mandate, saying it’s a key — and constitutional — piece of the law.

    “We are confident that this will be upheld because it should be upheld,” Obama said at a joint news conference at the White House with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon.


    Personally, I think Obama might crack if the entire law is tossed out. :eek:
  2. Obama has no respect for the Court. He has shown that repeatedly, for example by maliciously calling them out during a State of the Union address in which he lied about their Citizens United decision. Now this, a crude attempt to pressure them. What will he do next, send Al Sharpton and a rent-a-mob to their homes?

    Let's just hope the lack of respect is mutual.

    Obama thinks he is smarter and knows more about the Constitution than every one of the justices. In fact, I'm pretty sure he thinks he is the smartest person in the country if not the world.

    What he does when they strike down the law could be anything. He is a vengeful person.

    Obama humiliated the justices at the 2011 SOTU address.

    Payback is a bitch. :D
  5. Scholar in Chief
    President Obama made a statement today whose ignorance is all the more stunning for his once having been a part-time professor of constitutional law. National Journal has the report:

    Obama said he was confident Monday that the healthcare reform law will be upheld by the Supreme Court because it is constitutional.

    "Ultimately 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," he told reporters in the Rose Garden.

    Unprecedented? Even Linda Greenhouse would mock him for saying that. Did he sleep through the Harvard Law class on Marbury v. Madison?

    For that matter, did he sleep through his own 2010 State of the Union Address, in which he upbraided the Supreme Court for striking down portions of the Taft-Hartley and McCain-Feingold laws, both of which passed Congress by wider margins than ObamaCare did?

    Come to think of it, ObamaCare passed the House by just 219-212. If Obama think that's a "strong majority," he must've slept through arithmetic class at Punahou.
  6. Now this week the Supreme Court arguments on ObamaCare, which have made that law look so hollow, so careless, that it amounts to a characterological indictment of the administration. The constitutional law professor from the University of Chicago didn't notice the centerpiece of his agenda was not constitutional? How did that happen?

    I think the conservative justices are above making a ruling because of the pettiness of Obama. I hope they make their ruling because law goes against the Constitution and our Founding Father's intent.

    But, if a little anger will help them to make the right decision I am all for it. :D

    If he had half the legal mind that he needed he would have had the brains to go for single payer.
