All right, all right, pipe down John. Make yourself a nice Margarita, have a seat and keep reading. Here’s my take on Obozo’s Supreme Court comments.
I honestly have to say, I’ve taken this speech in bits and pieces. Because every time I start to listen to it, I feel like kicking the cat. So for the cat’s sake, I’ve rationed out bite sized morsels almost the entire day. There are so many issues to his comments that one blog would never do. So I’ll give you the dirty details, my version of Cliff’s notes, according to moi.
My very first impression was what a bunch of lies, cheap shots and Chicago bully politics. I guess you can take the politician out of Chicago but you can’t take the Chicago out of the politician. On Monday, April 2nd, the President commented on the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, with grand arrogance.
“Ultimately, I am 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. And I’d just remind conservative commentators that, for years, what we have heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism, or a lack of judicial restraint, that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law, Well, this is a good example, and I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.”
“Unprecedented”? Isn’t that what the supreme court does? They overturn stuff, they uphold stuff, they go out for dim-sum. It’s just what they do. Oh, but THIS is Obama’s baby, hence “unprecedented”.
Take into account these words were spoken by a Constitutional Law professor, and Harvard Law grad. This Act so overtly unconstitutional it’s shameful. It’s all about the politics of the situation. It has NOTHING to do with actually getting people affordable health care.
His idea of the Constitution has nothing to do with our Constitution. Just because you call a dildo, a hot hunk of man, does NOT make it a real live man. Trust me, I’ve tried. It’s a cheap imitation of the real thing. And personally, I don’t even think it really is worth it, even in a pinch.
Obama calls it Constitutional. And just because he speaks the words, he expects it to be so. His strong words show an attempt to pressure the courts into making the “right” decision, which is HIS view and his view only. The problem is that his view goes completely against our founding fathers and the founding documents. It opens the Pandora’s box of socialism.
This decision is paramount. It either opens the door to massive amounts of Government control and fully diminishes the Constitution. If struck down, the Constitution lives to fight another day.
But worse yet, how dare you peasants even question it? Especially if you are merely “unelected”! I guess that means you are not a part of the Arian race of elected officials.
Ok, I’m not a lawyer, just a conservative blogger with an over active libido, but it is my understanding that judicial activism is when you are writing new law not overturning a law. Rush Limbaugh said Monday, “This is not judicial activism if they overturn it. It’s supporting the law. It’s confirming the law.”
And this whole “strong majority” my ass. It wasn’t a large majority. Obama is better at the art of hyperbole and revisionist history thinking than even I am. To be honest, you have to look at comments such as these as nothing short of brilliance. Obama has proven he is highly adept in his art of persuasion. He is able to comment with absurd confidence which sells his words with uncanny blind acceptance. He’s able to shape public opinion easily and succinctly. God I hate that. But he’s good at it. The House passed the Senate version of ObamaCare by a vote of 219 to 212 with over 30 democrats breaking from their party to vote against the bill. The vote was 60-39 in the Senate.
The President continued…”I’m confident that this will be upheld because it should be upheld, and again, that’s not just my opinion. That’s the opinion of a whole lot of constitutional law professors and academies and judges and lawyers who have examined this law, even if they’re not particularly sympathetic to this particular piece of legislation or my presidency.”
And why is he so confident? I go back and forth on this like most Conservative commentators and writers. The Pollyanna in me says the mandate will be found unconstitutional and struck down. Without the mandate I’m not quite certain how the rest will funded, oh yeah, more high taxes and then he will blame the GOP. Which as you have likely heard is now going to cost almost double from what Obama sold in his original bill of goods to the American people. Again, that is easily forgiven and swept under liberal media rugs.
Of course, there is speculation that the vote was secretly revealed to Obama hence his arrogance as he slammed the Supreme Court with veiled threats. But I think that point is moot. It is whatever it is. I don’t think his bully tactics will work. I don’t know about you, but if someone has a bumper sticker to the effect of “don’t ride my ass” or something of the like, I do it just for fun. People don’t like to be told what to do or how to do it. Even if the President of the United States is the one telling you.
It could also be struck down and Obama play the victim/underdog to reignite a divisive reelection campaign. Also a brilliant strategy.
To me, this simply revealed more insight into his character. He is a narcissist. Criticism and questioning is not an option in his world. I believe it’s the reason he becomes so belligerent in certain situations. He can’t understand anyone believing differently. His comment, “it will be upheld, and it should be upheld…and that’s not just my opinion” sum the entirety of his comments fully. He says the dildo is real and he wants you to blindly believe even though everything inside you tells you it isn’t. (I promise, I just literally laughed loud enough to freak the cat out over that one.)
To be continued in June….
