Obama Fires Salvo at "Unelected" Supreme Court

Dan from NY:

This has echoes of Obama’s infamous lecture to The Justices during his State of The Union address in 2010. Clearly, he has a runaway ego. If Americans hand this arrogant man the reins for four more years it will be an historic and regrettable mistake. Obama’s megalomaniacal temperament almost guarantees that if reelected he will leverage his lame duck status and try to elbow aside the separation of powers and other safeguards in our Constitution that limit the ability of one branch of government to usurp the power of another. In fact, by interjecting himself into a matter already before the Court, he has just given us a sneak preview of the ugly things to come.

Obama issues stern language on Supreme Court health care decision

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."

...The president stressed that the judges are "unelected" and noted that the law was passed by a democratically elected Congress.

Monday's comments were the first public warning the president has issued since the justices heard oral arguments last week on the constitutionality of the law, which includes an individual health care mandate.

It remains to be seen how the justices will rule on the matter. On Friday, the court began deliberations, which could last through June. The ruling could significantly impact the president's re-election strategy.

Did you catch that?

Obama "issued stern language"?

He voiced a "public warning" to the Supreme Court?

I don't care what political party you belong to.

This kind of behavior isn't American.

It's something worthy of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela or Fidel Castro in Cuba. This man must be removed from office in November. Otherwise, this country is done.

Obama is the most narcissistic, petulant President I have ever witnessed. I'm very curious how the SCOTUS will react to this "stern" warning. Personally, should the court agree with Obama, it will not matter if he is re-elected or not. The damage that precedent will do to our constitutional republic will be already done and there will be no stopping him from truly fundamentally changing this country.

For me, should he be re-elected, I will consider moving to Israel. At least it they have a country that would be worth fighting for. America, under another 4 years of The Won, will no longer be worth saving.

True, but SCOTUS is just enforcing the law of the land as laid down by the Founding Fathers

All of this exists primarily to protect the country from power-drunk madmen like yourself, Barry... you putz

It would not surprise me if Sotomayer and, Sebelius discussed the decision during the dinner this past friday.
I find it suspicious that they had dinner that same night after the court voted on the case.

I trust that Barry will lug around a podium that says "President Un-Elect of the United States of America" in November. That is, after his possessed buddies count, re-count, torch a few cities and attempt to strong arm the system.
Judge tampering may be acceptable in lice filled Illinois but it is usually punished elsewhere. This third world thug belongs in an African prison.

The SC was VERY upset at Emperor Barack for his abuse of them during the SOTU. they will be even more angered and put-off by this blatant attempt by Emperor Barack to intimidate them into making his decision he wants.

this is going to backfire on our Boy Facist Emperor bigtime. you wait. Anthony Kennedy doesn't like to be warned or threatened, especially by a no-nothing who sent that inept dope into the Oral Arguments last week to advance this tyranny. they got leveled then and this attempt to threaten them is going to make them that much more ready to scrap this tyrannical "law" and show the Emperor how things are done here in America. you wait.

truly disgusting behavior from someone purporting to be a US President. this guy is a gutter-snipe scumbag. pigs in sh_t have more decency and sense than this cretin who deems himself our King.

Will the Liberals on the Court that are beholding to Barry continue to provide him with 'pleasure' or will they actually decide to uphold their oath of office. Any bets?

Sotomayor, Kagan and Ginsburg are mindless idealogues. They will vote in favor of ObamaScare no matter what. Ginsburg was trying to help the ObamaCare testimony and bad-mouthed our Constitution in Egypt. Kagan said she viewed O-Care as giving a boat load of money to the states to provide health care for the poor (clueless). Our "wise Latina" is also quite in the tank for Obama. That's just my opinion.
