Obama on Obamacare and the Supreme Court - Arrogance, Intimidation or Ignorance?

In the aftermath of closing arguments at the Supreme Court regarding the Constitutionality of Obamacare and perhaps with the sinking feeling that his signature legislation is going down the tubes, on Monday 2 April President Obama said "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. And I'd just remind conservative commentators that for years what we've 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."

Nevermind the thinly veiled attempt to chastise (or threaten?) the Supreme Court, you be the judge,....Obamacare passed in Congress by a 219-212 margin,...this is "a strong majority?"

This comment of Obama prompted critics to accuse the president of trying to intimindate and bully the nation's highest court. One of those critics was Judge Jerry Smith, out of 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, who with two other judges on Tuesday to ask the Justice Department to issue a three-page, single-spaced letter affirming the federal court's authority to rule on the case.

Which we think is appropriate since Obama's Justice Department serves more like an Obama support group than an independent entity enforcing the laws of this country indiscriminantly like they are supposed to. But, adding fuel to the fire, regarding Judge Smith's request, Attorney General Eric Holder went public, defending the President's attempt at intimindating the Supreme Court by stating that Obama's comments were "appropriate."

I think Rusk Limbaugh got it right when he said Obama's strategy is to inflame the uninformed masses, using the theme that the Supreme Court is "taking away your health care rights" in order to get these hand out, entitlist's engaged (and enraged) for the November election.

P.S. I was going to mention how Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, was totally inept in defending President Obama's comments on the Supreme Court, during press conferences, but this butt clown needs no flogging,....he did it to himself with the comment that what the president said was "the reverse of intimidation."
