    Unfortunately for your attempted dodge, yet again, all the posts are here for all to see you're not telling the truth.

    And if you believe you were never confused before, it stands to reason that you still must be now. If so, let me put your fears to rest by saying that no, Obama does not possess the power to rule laws constitutional or unconstitutional, and therefore he is not replacing the SCOTUS. If there's anything else just let me know, because I'm here to help.

    I'm not? So you do believe then that Obama has the power to rule laws unconstitutional? Wow, maybe I really do need to find a School House of Rock video for you.

Before 2012, Mr. Obama probably thought the Equal Protection Clause did that only penultimately.
    You see now that's a proper dodgy answer. One Obama's handlers would be proud of. Sounds like you have a talent for the press secretary spot.

    Funny thing is, I've never needed to ask questions like "Can I fly?" or "Is Mars made of pepper chili sauce?" because to do so would imply a much deeper confusion on my part and cause for grave concern by others. In any case, I'll accept your post to imply that you're no longer confused on the separation of powers, I've done my job and I'm free to help others now.

    Of course not, was never even the topic, and your renewed attempts to obfuscate are noted by all here.

    You said, "Is Obama replacing the SCOTUS?" Well, when Obama says "Such and such law is unconstitutional!" hits a gavel or something, and just like that a law is officially made unconstitutional, then yes, Obama will be replacing the SCOTUS. Until such time as that happens, then no, he is demonstrably not replacing the SCOTUS.
    He effectively did that with DOMA, no?

    Then why come after me when I tried to help apdst with his confusion? Instead of drawing this out for umpteen posts you and I together could have resolved his problem much more efficiently.

    Judging the gibberish in your post, your only objective harassment and not discussion.
