    "
    Now you know how I felt this morning when I read in the Wall Street Journal that my own constitutional law professor had stated that it would be “an unprecedented, extraordinary step” for the Supreme Court to “overturn[] a law [i.e., the Affordable Care Act] that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.” Putting aside the “strong majority” nonsense (the deeply unpopular Affordable Care Act got through the Senate with the minimum number of votes needed to survive a filibuster and passed 219-212 in the House), saying that it would be “unprecedented” and “extraordinary” for the Supreme Court to strike down a law that violates the Constitution is like saying that Kansas City is the capital of Kansas. Thus, a Wall Street Journal editorial queried this about the President who “famously taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago”: “[D]id he somehow not teach the historic case of Marbury v. Madison?”"

    I don't think so. This is going to keep going until election day and maybe beyond.

    Obama's kicking things into high gear.

    Kind of. He was never more than an adjunct or visiting professor.

    Or at least until the decision becomes public. However with obamas interference if it not deemed unconstitutional, it will always be suspect that obama twisted the justices and forced them to not to overturn his ..... landmark unconstitutional health care.

    So what? FDR did the same thing. He arm twisted the supreme court saying he was going to have congress change the number of seats on the SCOTUS so he could stack the court.


    Don't act all surprised that he's playing hardball.
