    I haven't heard the term "judicial activism" since the evangelical right were whining about the courts enforcing separation of church and state. The courts are there to interpret the law, not make you happy. Go figure.

    LOL, you all sure don't call it Judicial Activism when the calls go for something you are for.

    You really are a Progressive Useful tool, the Obama administration say this is judicial activism, and you jump to REPEAT IT and post it first.

    Flaylo Thread Fail! (Again)

    Judicial activism only applies when judges make law where none exists.

    In this case, the judge applied the Constitutional test to ObamaCare and ObamaCare failed, just like this thread! :lol:

    Well of course. Another lefty Law Professor who doesn't know the difference between Judicial Defense of the Constitution and Judicial Activism.
    He should be fired.

    One man's judicial activism is another man's sage ruling, folks.

    No courts judgement (however the public feels about it either way) ISN'T an example judical activism.

    It's in the Commerce Clause don't cha' know? That means the government can stick it's regulatory nose into every part of our lives.

    Besides, they're so much smarter than us anyway, I mean, they got elected! That's proof right there!
