    Obama’s ‘Unprecedented’ Remarks: Is the President Running Against the Supreme Court?

    Essentially, President Obama is saying it should be upheld because it is popular, not because it is legally/Constitutionally correct.

    Wow. Just... wow!

    Hard to believe his claims that he went to a prestigious university and was allegedly taught something about constitutional law. Perhaps he should surrender his diploma for inspection, along with his birth certificate, his hospital records and his passport.

    Using Obama's logic, then why does he have a problem with the States illegal immigration laws. They were passed by elected officals and have public support. Oh, its because he doesn't like them. He likes the Health Care bill.

    Today it is the GOP decrying "influencing" judicial rulings of the Supreme Court because it is a law they want struck down, when they have been doing the same thing on the legality of abortion for decades. Both sides do it, and which ever way the Supreme Court rules, the opposing side will accuse the court of "judicial activism". Such is politics... get over it, because you can't have it both ways.

    The hypocrisy of one side or the other is not at issue.

    What's at issue is that our president thinks the Court should side with popularity, not the rule of law.

    When it suits him.

    Of course, in this case, by his argument, then the Court really SHOULD strike down the mandate.

    And the GOP thinks the rule of law shouldn't apply to something they don't like... opposite sides of the same coin. Hypocrisy of both sides IS the issue.

    It's a Constitutional issue. Case law and the Constitution are not one and the same.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No, it's apparently your issue, and it's only half true -- you're not going after the Democrats here, only the GOP.

    Hypocrisy of 'ponents both pro and op has nothing do with constitutionality.

    No I'm saying BOTH sides are wrong. The Supreme court will determine constitutionality, that is it's role. In both cases.
