    Really? What's "my side," and which "rhetoric"?

    Can SCOTUS check and balance the other branches, or is that an act of "legislating from the bench?"

    Yes, I think it was poorly phrased. He definitely needs to work on his right wing rhetoric.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. 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."

    That makes no sense. What does SCOTUS' role have to do with right wing rhetoric?

    What if the POTUS aimed to veto a
    Bill congress passed because it was thought to be unconstitutional, and a Senator warned him that he better not veto it, because Congress passed it. I mean WTF? Wouldn't that show incredible ignorance to our structure of government?

    The only partisan rhetoric here is in Obama's his feigned ignorance.

    I wonder, given Obama's thinking, how he feels about the prop 187 decision.
    it's odd that so many people whgo have actually studied the laws of the US disagree. Even odder that this was not the issue ot the SCOTUS hearings, it was the way it was done. And yet you with no constitutional law experience can state that it is that way "period". Pardon me if I doubt your accuracy.

    Apparently mentioning a ruling SCOTUS might make will cause them to rush and change their mind...

    Or they are just parroting the latest talking point.

    Actually it would require a certain set of blinders to actually believe that he was trying to do something he has no power to do in a way that would not work.

    Are you not following the thread? It is right wing rhetoric to accuse the Supreme Court of activism whenever it does something that right wingers don't like. Saying that unelected judges are substituting their judgment for that of our elected representatives, i.e. "legislating from the bench" is torn straight from the right wing lexicon. Doesn't it sound stupid coming back at you?
