The Ignorance and Arrogance of Obama...

Liberty -vs- Tyranny


In my opinion the President, in his attack on the United States Supreme court, belies both his basic ignorance of our republic as well as his arrogance. His last uttering in and of itself is enough to deny the man, and I use the term loosely in this case, another term as President...


Forgive me my rational liberal friends but his recent statement is more telling of his statist leanings than anything he has heretofore said. His statement has proven beyond any doubt he is indeed clueless.

The Washington Post - There was something rather unsettling in President Obama’s preemptive strike on the Supreme Court at Monday’s news conference.

“I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench is judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law,” Obama said. “Well, here’s a good example. And I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that, and not take that step.”...

... Obama’s assault on “an unelected group of people” stopped me cold. Because, as the former constitutional law professor certainly understands, it is the essence of our governmental system to vest in the court the ultimate power to decide the meaning of the constitution. Even if, as the president said, it means overturning “a duly constituted and passed law.” ...

But the president went too far in asserting that it “would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step” for the court to overturn “a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.” That’s what courts have done since Marbury v. Madison. The size of the congressional majority is of no constitutional significance. We give the ultimate authority to decide constitutional questions to “a group of unelected people” precisely to insulate them from public opinion.

I would lament a ruling striking down the individual mandate, but I would not denounce it as conservative justices run amok. Listening to the arguments and reading the transcript, the justices struck me as a group wrestling with a legitimate, even difficult, constitutional question. For the president to imply that the only explanation for a constitutional conclusion contrary to his own would be out-of-control conservative justices does the court a disservice. {Full Article Here}

Indeed, even a Mitt Romney with all his baggage is preferable to this outrage!

  1. Barack Obama just makes me seethe sometimes. Apart from his political views, his anti-American agenda, and his failing administration, I hate him as a person. I hate his attitude. I hate his personality. I hate his voice and the manner in which he talks. Part of me wants the GOP to win this year simply to see Obama and his arrogance LOSE. Nothing would be sweeter.

  2. We've all been blogging a while now and I must say, this is the most disturbing incident yet from this man.

    1. Yes, LCR. Yes it is. And one worth noting.

  3. Obama obviously doesn't care for the checks and balances that protect us from tyranny. He'd like to be an autocrat. He's made that abundantly clear.
