    Care to explain how commentary 10 years after the decision is the same as Obama "warning" the SCOTUS while they are deliberating a decision in a current case?

    The undergrad experience has very little to do with the Law School experience, which is anything but easy. And what most people don't understand is that being president of the law review is like having a full time job on top of regular law studies.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Care to explain where the "warning" was?

    Further explication by President Obama:
    The law is about regulating commerce, it's about creating it. That's the core problem with it.

    One would think with all that wonderous education you seem star struck over, that he would have realized this law would meet constitutional challenges.... anyway, not impressed, I worked harder for my education.

    You're right, he only told them if they overturn the law it would amount to judicial activism.

    No, he is not correct.

    Whatever he was doing at Harvard it was not studying law.

    Then perhaps he should have found work as an editor somewhere rather than fancying himself to be an expert on law and legal precedent.

    No, what this tells us is that political ideology trumps legal scholarship, because there is no doubt he knows the Constitution. He just doesn't like it, and seeks ways to manipulate Constitutional provisions, such as the Commerce Clause, to circumvent original intent. He swore an oath to PRESERVE, protect and defend the Constitution, and he's failing in his primary duty.


    Why? Because the Constitution is unfair, rugged individulalism never worked, and the Constitution was written by rich, white, slave owners.

    I don't know that I totally agree with this line of reasoning, because I think he knows all this very well. He doesn't agree with it, and is purposefully trying to circumvent the Constitution.
