I think the president made a thinly-veiled threat against the Supreme Court today at a joint press conference with a couple of America’s other enemies – Calderon of Mexico and (to a lesser extent) Harper of Canada.
The president, adopting what he described as the language of conservatives who fret about judicial activism, questioned how an “unelected group of people” could overturn a law approved by Congress.
“I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress,” Obama said.
Strong majority? This festering turd of a healthcare law was passed by a 219-212 margin in the House of Representatives. His “strong majority” characterization is just another example of how out of touch with reality the president is. Fifty-six percent of Americans reject the mandate – there’s the “strong majority” on this issue.
