I gasped yesterday when I heard Obama shoot off his mouth about the pending Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare. From the Guardian:
Obama warns 'unelected' supreme court not to strike down healthcare lawI cannot recall ever hearing before a President violate the Constitution and its principles of the separation of powers by issuing such a statement about a pending decision from the highest court in the land.
Barack Obama has said it would be wrong for the "unelected" supreme court to take the "unprecedented and extraordinary" decision to strike down his signature health care legislation when it was passed by an elected Congress.
The comments suggest the president may make an election issue of those described by Democrats as partisan judges if they throw out the Affordable Care Act...
In fact, ever since Marbury v. Madison in 1803, it has been the TASK of the United States Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of legislation!
As Epaminondas of Infidel Bloggers Alliance points out:
The Supreme Court Justices are as unelected today as they were in 1954 when they overturned precedent and the sense of the nation and insisted on integration in school.In 2008, Obama formed his campaign around "Blame Bush!" If the Supreme Court of the United States rules against ObamaCare, this time around, the demagogue Obama will run against the Supreme Court of the United States.
PS the law was passed by SEVEN VOTES, 219-212 with 34 democrats joining every single republican. A vote recently taken in the Senate to REPEAL Obamacare failed by ONLY 4 votes.
There can be no doubt that the framers of the Constitution would be appalled that YOU PERSONALLY [BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA], and your entire faction have arrogated to yourselves the POWER to dictate what citizens buy, because YOU believe that is the best way to create the society YOU want...
In effect, if Obama takes the route of running against the Supreme Court, he will be running against the Constitution of the United States.
Apparently, destroying the Constitution of the United States has been his plan all along:
Addendum 1 (with thanks to Mustang, who emailed me the link): Obama Slams Supreme Court over Obamacare.
Addendum 2: YE, GODS!!!: "Newsweek Calls For Impeaching Supreme Court Justices If They Overturn Obamacare."
