President Obama Runs His Mouth Off Again
Our media-vaunted “Constitutional Law Professor”, President Barack Obama, attacked the U.S. Supreme Court and the Constitution in one off the cuff response, at a joint press conference with President Calderon of Mexico and Canadian Prime Minister Harper, in the White House Rose Garden, today.
In Obama’s now standard un-presidential manner, he threatened the Justices on their consideration of the constitutionality of “ObamaCare”.
“We are confident that this will be upheld because it should be upheld,” “It’s constitutional.” “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,” “I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench is judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint.”
“That an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law. Well, here’s a good example. And I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that, and not take that step,”
You don’t say. Barack Obama is a thug and very worried that his only piece of legislation will go down in flames and ruin his re-election chances. While pretending to care about the lives of the American people he is really just caring about himself.
This is the second time Obama has ridiculed the Supreme Court. In his SOTU speech in January of 2010, Barack said, “Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections,” “Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong.”
The condemnation of President Obama’s remark was swift and best expressed by Bradley A. Smith, chairman of the Center for Competitive Politics. “The President’s swipe at the Supreme Court was a breach of decorum, and represents the worst of Washington politics — scapegoating ‘special interest’ bogeymen for all that ails Washington in attempt to silence the diverse range of speakers in our democracy,”
It’s not unusual for Presidents to disagree with the Supreme Court, when it rules against them. This is usually done through a statement after the court has rendered a decision.
President Obama believes that he can publicly criticize the court while adjudicating, showing the world that he knows squat about the U.S. Constitution and the job of U.S. President.
I only hope that Obama’s public denunciations will strengthen the Supreme Court Justices to slap Barack really hard for his big fat stupid mouth and rule that the mandate is un-constitutional!
The founders knew what they were doing when they created three distinct and co-equal branches of government. The Supreme Court is upholding it’s Constitutional authority and doing exactly what it is supposed to do; deciding on whether this crap sandwich massive piece of legislation is legal or not.
President Obama just can’t stop being the idiot he has always been.
