    Okay. Show us his grades and some of his writings.

    What ? Are you making this up as you go. The Solicitor General argued no such "existing case law". He argued the opposite, as there was no existing case law. He had to call Healthcare "unique" in order to hope to qualify it !!! Justice Kennedy said it best, in that he was troubled by this unprecedented application of the Commerce Clause as "there was no limiting principle".

    He explained today: "The point I was making is that the Supreme Court is the final say on our Constitution and our laws and all of us have to respect it. But it's precisely because of that extraordinary power that the court has traditionally exercised significant restraint and deference to our duly-elected legislature, our Congress."
    So Obama is just as wrong today as he was yesterday.

    Even if you accept that this is what Obama meant, it certainly doesn't imply he had "existing commerce clause case law" in mind, at all. This is your own flimsy spin, supported by nothing.

    One thing we clearly saw was that Non Lawyer and supposed "moron" had a solicitor General Paul Clement who was sure better and more skilled than HLR president Obama's Solicitor General

    As opposed to what? Imaginary commerce clause case law?

    You cannot find Obama's Occidental or Columbia grades and other records with a search warrant. I suspect they are a more closely guarded secret than the identity of New York Mob Rat Henry Hill

    We know he graduated at the top of his class because he was magna cum laude. Contrary to wingnut wisdom, he did write an article for the Law Review. Exclusive: Obama's lost law review article - Ben Smith and Jeffrey Ressner - POLITICO.com
