    He did not explain it wrong. You don't know what you're talking about.

    That the Supreme Court is supposed to only judge with the Constitution in hand, that Justice is a foxy chick in a blindfold, (I always get a little turned on when I see her) history shows us quite often the Supreme Court does have a tilt to it. The original decisions on corporations is an example. This latest one is another.

    That President Obama makes some comments a few less than informed folks take as ignorant simply means some need to actually read a bit of the history of the Supreme Court.

    In a perfect world the Highest Court WOULD only judge a case with the Constitution as the yardstick.

    It will be interesting.

    And another....My god, with rhetorical skills like that I for one am surprised that you waste your time on a message board. I mean after all, you should be putting your mad "Nuh Uh" witty retort to use with MSNBC, or Media Matters....

    Look, the Thug n chief got busted trying to bully the SCOTUS, and quite wrongly saying some pretty stupid things like the "unprecedented" comment, but it does fit with the Obama of old that lib sycophants like yourself dismissed at every turn here is the ditty, maybe you remember it....



    Now give me your best "nuh uh"....

    And if it were only about the Constitution, as we hope it will be, then Obamacare gets thrown out as a slam dunk. That things are so ****ed up is because of liberal expansion of the Commerce Clause, and a complete disregard for the concept of Enumerated Powers.

    SCOTUS got Citzens United correct. The liberal concept that you can have Unions and Media Organizations "exempt", but then regulate donations from other groupings of people and their capital is complete liberal horsehit. Thank God this Court had the Constitutional wisdom to say all that is horse manure.

    Time for the Court to roll back all this Progressive nonsense. You may not like it, but the Founders are surely cool with it.

    Oh Give me a break....And I suppose if the court throws out the mandate, or strikes the law en total, then what? They didn't follow the Constitution? Sounds like pre-emptive sour grapes to me...

    I disagree he does have dignity and class, i just think he mispeaks and has his own eccentricities like we all do. The fact we disagree with him on many issues just excagerates his anomies.

    Re: Obama’s ‘Unprecedented’ Remarks: Is the President Running Against the Supreme Cou

    I find it somewhat distasteful for Obama to be resorting to the typical rightwing battle cry of "Judicial Activism! Judicial Activism!"

    That seems to be below the office of the Presidency.

    Isn't that what Vice President's are for?

    But when all decisions are based on a 5 to 4 count, I think we should all be concerned as to how much politics plays into the decisions of the judges sitting in the highest court in our land. That should concern us all regardless of our lean.

    The court is supposed to be above and beyond politics. Just doing the math, it should be very clear to us all that it is not.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
