    Looks like Obama will have to answer for his immature remarks he made Monday about the health care law and questioning the supreme courts ability to carry out their duty.

    They don't have the standing to do that. And Obama's remarks were hardly immature.

    Of course it was immature.
    We have very specific checks and balances in our system of governance that has been in play since the dawn of America after the revolution.
    Obama can't stand to have someone step over his authority and he threw a temper tantrum on camera that in effect, questions the authority of the Supreme Court.
    He is the President Sallow. And when a President questions the authority or integrity of another branch - that is a very, very big deal.

    King Obama is accountable to no man. He will not be filing that report. Book it.

    Checks and balances include the court. If the court is engaging in partisan politics as opposed to valid Judicial prudence..then the President is well within his rights to say so.

    The court has proven itself to be very radical, partisan and abusive of it's role in government over the last decade.

    Ensuring government remains within its constitutional constraints is the most important role of the Supreme Court - a role they've largely neglected since FDR. It's about time they start taking their job seriously again.

    That is your opinion. And as a citizen of this country it is both your right and duty to question authority. But your not the President. That is the crux. A sitting President cannot make a general statement questioning the authority and integrity of another branch without very specific claims. And even then it should be done in proper channels and not on camera to promote himself.
    It was outrageous and stinks of Nixon'sm.

    It might be good to see a full blown pissing match between the Court and the White House. It could at least give more people the opportunity to reflect on what unlimited executive (or congressional) power would mean.
