Is it just my perception or is Obama obsessed with suing and being sued?

    It just seems like he wants to use the courts to usurp local and national legislatures. Every damn day on the news or in the papers I'm hearing about this lawsuit or that lawsuit and 99% of them seem to revolve around Obama in some fashion or another.

    Or has our country come to the point that we can no longer govern ourselves without some courts approval?

    Maybe this is normal and I just never noticed because I wasn't paying attention before? Either way it seems like a path that gives the courts too much power. I thought the courts were to balance things out but it seems now they are being used as political pawns and weapons.

    I've said it before, I've never seen a administration sue the States and basically the people who live in them like i have with this one.

    How do you like it people?

    Oh it's not that. Every thing is so partisan now..people are legislating from the bench. Don't like the way a vote turned out? Well..it's going to court.

    Ridiculous..really.

    I agree. Thing is I dunno why this administration is sueing so many states. And based on the line of questioning by the justices it sounds like Obama is going to lose in most of the cases. Then democrats vow to write new legislation to effectivly overturn some laws anyhow.

    Seems to me they should have done that first rather than waste our tax dollars in court because they were too impatient.

    But we agree the courts system is being abused and misused.

    Do you have some stats on how many cases Obama's Solicitor General has gone to court compared to, ohhhhh, say, Bush's Solicitor General?

    I seem to recall Bush going to court frequently during the war on terror, trying to get around this that and the other thing so he could spy on us without warrants, and detain people indefinitely and stuff like that.

    That's what it is. Obama can't force others by leadership, so he takes the craven way out--decree and lawsuits.

    When he is defeated in November, it will be more of the same, and on and on. We'll never get away from Obama lawsuits for the duration. That's what happens when you allow an interloper to become President. If he lives to be 100, he will be suing some hardworking person's ass off and trying to put a pox on the energy industry so nobody will think it's him who encouraged $5.00 gas prices "for the good of the environment," when all of humanity's influence on world environment is less that .006% (Six one thousandth of one percent).
