The reason why justices to the United States Supreme Court are not elected but instead appointed to lifetime terms is to minimize as much as possible any outside influence. After all, judges who stand for election might appeal to special interest groups the way Democrats pander to Big Union.
But leave it to one of the most partisan presidents ever to already start bullying the Supreme Court regarding his pet, Obamakare:
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.
And here we have the central tactic of Liberals: bully, undermine, personally attack critics, and attempt to hint at some sort of revolution.
The threat is quite clear… the Supreme Court is unelected and and overturning of a law passed by elected officials is morally wrong.
And, for good measure, Republicans are somehow hypocrites by maintaining that allowing the Government to force someone to buy something is “judicial activism.”
And Obama campaigned that George W. Bush was Divider-in-Chief and he, Obama, would Unite everybody!
What a load of garbage and how hypocritical can you get?
Liberals are threatening at the sidelines… using every tool in their arsenal… racism, undemocratic behavior, civil rights, class warfare, etc… to bully their way into another 4 years for Obama.
Obama holds little respect for the institutions as president he has sworn to protect. Who can forget during his State of the Union speech he showed his contempt for the Supreme Court by saying:
Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections. Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong.
The day a people no longer respects its judiciary because their “leader” has incited hatred against them is the day that nation falls.
