Calling The Supreme Court Out?

Updated on April 5, 2012

There He Goes Again...

Sometimes Obama is too obvious. Supposedly he taught constitutional law and if he did I often wonder how he shredded it to pieces in front of his students. There is something in that hallowed document about the separation of powers in this nation. Obama's actions of late have given the distinct impression that he doesn't find that little detail relevant and it shouldn't apply to him. I always have to remember that when I listen to Obama that he is a narcissist of the Nth degree. You see my fellow Americans, if you don't see it Obama's way "you don't know what you are talking about." His words, not mine, and I've heard that quite often roll out of his teleprompter.

It probably wasn't a very good idea for Obama to call the Supreme Court out in his State of the Union address back in 2010. He chastised the wisdom of that court before the entire nation which was a bit "unprecedented" and definitely not in good form. Much was written about that gaff and now his latest gaff, I am sure, is drawing much critical review. You see Obama sees the courts roll as setting social policy which has nothing to do with the actual roll of that court. It's roil is to determine the constitutionality of the laws of this nation. But from all appearances that document doesn't mean anything to the very person at the top who has taken the solemn oath of supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States of America.

So maybe seeing the handwriting on the wall about the possibility of the ruling going against him, he pulls his bony finger out of wherever he keeps it when he's not pointing it at someone else and gives it a second twirl at the highest court in our land. Bad form again Obama. Hasn't anyone told Obama that even as he pursued this over reaching piece of legislative garabge called Obamacare that the majority of Americans are against it and that number has steadily risen as "we find out what is in it."

So lets listen and watch one more time how it went when he opened his mouth one more time.

Obama likes the words "unprecedented" and "extraordinary" in case you ever happen to listen to what he says. Everything he has ever accomplished, which in reality seems to be little that is on the productive side, I often find unprecedented and extraordinary myself, usually "uncalled" for in the same breath. When he did it the first time those three words applied and they apply again. He represents but one of the three branches of our government but wants to be the only one who can call the shots. Talk about having a big head, just find a picture of the man.

The only "element" to this, as he terms it, that the Supreme Court should concern itself with is "the legal element of this." Obama loves to blur the lines almost to the point of blatantly lying. I reckon many people, those who light the votive candles at their altars they have erected for him, gobble that rhetoric up like the pablum it is. His signature law was crafted in secret and it had to be passed so that we could see what was in it. It is basically 2,700 pages of taxes which hit the middle class pretty hard despite the fact that Obama has frequently pledged that there would be no new taxes which have that effect. It is very unpopular. So what is he doing going national again trying to place blame where it doesn't belong? We don't want your stinking health care bill. We didn't then and we don't now.

The Bully Pulpit

Lets examine the facts, or his lack of using them, involved here. He states that Obamacare was passed by "a strong majority" in Congress at the time. It squeaked by with a 7 vote margin. That's a strong majority? Since when? Many sitting incumbents lost their seats for voting in favor of what their constituents strongly opposed in 2010. He likes to forget that fact. So do his liberal, koolaid swilling followers.

The next fact, which is indeed a fact but misused by Obama, is that the Supreme Court of this land is indeed a body of un-elected officials. It was intended to be that way because it was designed to be a non-political body of legal scholars who oversee the laws of this nation according to the provisions found in our Constitution. It was not intended to be politicized but twice now Obama has taken that step.

Just because that group of professional pick pockets in Congress passes a law does not by any means ensure that it is constitutional. Several of those same people have publicly stated that the Constitution and its contents aren't factored into crafting the legislation they write. Many of them haven't probably even bothered to read, much less study, what is said therein. Many of them never even read the bills before them before they are made to vote for them. They could all decide that it be a requirement for each of us to eat liver and onions ever day without fail and pass such nonsense but that doesn't make it constitutional to do so. Such is the case with Obamacare.

He seems to totally ignore Marbury v. Madison. There is nothing unprecedented, nor extraordinary about federal courts striking down unconstitutional laws. It's been done before and it will be done again. That is unless Obama gets his way of becoming a dictator.

I'm just hoping he just gave a wake up call to some of the Obama zombies about exactly where his point of reference is. First he stated that he would find a way around Congress to do what he wants done whether they, or we for that matter, like it or not. Now this?

It's time that we send Obama back to the south side of Chicago or wherever it was he came from in the first place. Just Remember In November and take five people you know to the polls with you in November.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Had Enough Yet?

      Obviously Obama was totally inappropriate with his remarks about the Supreme Court. I am glad he is getting some negative feedback due to his remarks. Considering his education, it is ridiculous that he ignores the Constitution and its intent.

      Excellent exposition, Frog.

      Such arrogance, such haughty behavior, such indescribable thought processes from our Emperor-in-Waiting. Has he never learned that you do not lambast and deride those you need (Supreme Court) to support you? Anxiously awaiting his November departure.

      Fred - Yes it was a typo. Toy caught it, the correction has been made and I thank you. Over the years though the federal government, in the form of the various idiots we have elected, have hollowed the document out though.

      Frog: Believe you've got a "Freudian typo" where you typed "hollowed" document (instead of "hallowed). If anybody has ever hollowed out the core of the U.S. Constitution, it's Obama.

      Right! He'll do the "three page report" just like he showed up in the Atlanta Court!

      I would have to guess the guys who run the puppet show and make Obama dance were not real happy with what he had to say. The puppet masters didn't write this script for him and had to cringe when they heard this garbage come out of his mouth. The decision has yet to be announced, but attacking those who hold the future of Obamacare in their hands is not a smart move for him to make. It will be interesting to see what is in the three page document Holder produces.

      I think Obummer is overconfident. This is very preliminary, but comments so far from Roberts, Alito, Kennedy, and Scalia have been negative toward the HC Act. And Thomas is a constructionist, and surely will vote to vacate. My guess is that it will be a 5-4 vote in favor of vacating the individual mandate. Then the whole law falls down; it won't be severable because the system will fail without consumers who are willing to voluntarily pay inflated prices to subsidize lower income subscribers (no such consumers will exist).

      Is it possible that the president and others think that the American people are stupid and incapable of knowing our own minds? therefore does he feel it is his job to show us the right way which is apparently reveled to him by a power almost as great as himself/

      BPOP - When I think of the term "Presidential Timber" Obama doesn't come to mind. Scrub brush yes - timber no.

      Obama can't help returning to his roots and orientation. He is supposed to be presidential but sometimes (too often) the Al Sharpton in him emerges. His utter disregard for our democracy is shocking. Up useful and awesome.

      Cassie - It will be interesting to see if Holder complies and gives at least a 3 page, single spaced reply to the court's request. Obama just created a firestorm he may find regrettable.

      Hi Frog Prince, one of the Appellate Courts, the one that handles Washington DC, has called him out and asked him if he is challenging the Court's Judicial Review responsibility. They want a 3-page, double-spaced answer from him ASAP. I hope they find him in contempt. That would be something, to find the President of the United States, Obama, in contempt of court. But that's what the Court needs to do to remind that ding-a-ling that he is not the Emperor of the World.
