    Except it was not the same. Not even close. Obama lied about what judicial activism is. Reagan did not.

    Of course...it's only judicial activism when it's a ruling against your sides legislation. I'm so tired of conservatives who have spent the past 3 or 4 decades decrying activitist judges and ruling from the bench now aghast the President is saying the same things they have for longer than I've been alive.

    Well, he's a former Speaker, current GOP candidate, and still a VIP in the Republican Party, so I think that everyone should care when he espouses blatant disrespect for the separation of powers.

    So be very tired then ! Clearly Dems struggle with what judicial activism is.

    Maybe one of the liberals here can answer Justice Kennedy's question "What is the limiting principle here". Then once you figure out what he meant, you might then start to grasp what it is that defines activism vs. judical restraint. Then you can tell Obammy.

    Nobody struggles with what judicial activism is. It just seems as if Conservatives have a problem with thinking they are some ordained arbitrators of the Constitution and anything a conservative court shoots down or rules on...well by definition it's obviously just following what the Constitution says....I mean they are conservatives.

    A little reminder that may restore reality to our wayward liberal friends:

    1. Former being the key word.
    2. with no chance of winning, ever.
    3. Are you suggesting guilt by association?

    So again, he is irrelevant, as are his views.

    In the cases where government is involved it is the inverse correlation--the longer the bill the lower the quality.

    Never underestimate the stupidity and perfidy of the half of the shrinking working population who pay no federal income taxes. They live with their hand out, looking for the next federal hand out. Will they vote against their sugar daddy, their lord and master?
