    No, I'd be inclined to say that it's not appropriate. What would be more appropriate and good leadership, IMHO, would be to make a statement similar to 'the court has ruled and we all are bound by these rules, so let's move forward even though it may not be the decision we agree with' or something along that vein.

    We already know that Obama's not bound by such decorum or solid leadership principals, as shown in how he criticized SCOTUS for the Citizens United v. FEC decision in the middle of SOTU address no less. Very poor form, if you ask me.

    How is having an opinion "tampering?" You think Roberts was wrong, correct? Why are you "tampering?

    One of the worst things to ever happen in this country was LBJ creating the unified budget where all tax revenue from all tax sources goes into one pot regardless of what the tax was supposed to fund. That makes it easy for politicians to spend money and then when the item the taxes were to fund runs out of money simply say the program is broke and we need to tax the taxpayers more. Obama supporters have no problem taking from someone else and Obama has no problem promoting wealth redistribution.
    GOOD GRIEF!Six post in and youre already derailling your own OP?thread.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I think it's totally appropriate. President George W. Bush, for instance, did not hesitate to criticize a 2008 ruling recognizing the rights of prisoners held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. But I suspect it only bothers you if it's a democrat doing it.

    It's not appropriate because a democrat is criticizing a potential decision that may derail a piece of the PPACA, and make you happy. I doubt you were bitching when Bush did the same thing.

    Wonder if you have the stones to admit what the outcry would be today had that been Bush saying what Obama said?

    This guy thinks he is a King. Why would anyone take this guy serious on anything and can you imagine taking Constitutional Law from this radical incompetent?
    The only thing about the Constitution that ever interested The Man Who Would Be King is how best to evade it.

    I agree that the stunt President Pinocchio pulled about Citizens United, with the justices sitting right there in front of him, WAS very poor form. But aside from the fact this speech could have an effect just opposite the one intended, it is fairly tepid meddling, by historical standards. Franklin Roosevelt was determined to get rid of a couple justices who had been voting against his New Deal schemes--so determined that near the start of his second term, he suggested a clever new scheme for the Court. This would have increased it to twelve justices, while imposing a maximum age limit that would have forced his adversaries out. This "court packing" scheme was a clear attempt to bully the Court into calling things FDR's way, and even though it never was carried out, just the threat of it seems to have produced the desired results.
