    To obama, the law says what he wants it to say. He has no problem with lying about it.

    The Lochner case was very much part of this controversy. When the Lochner decision was announced, many lawyers, judges and others were highly critical of the decision, believing the Court had interpreted the Constitution to fit with their own opinions.
    When the Court puts in their own opinions as to what they would like the law to be, it is called legislating (making laws) from the bench (by the Court). Laws are supposed to be made by the legislature, not the Court. Obama was reminding the court of this Lochner criticism.

    That is "one" presumption.

    The other one, is that he is deliberate.

    It amazes me that he is still being given the benefit of any doubt.

    He's just trying to put the best face on the situation that he can, for political reasons. He's not going to talk about the Court invalidating the law unless/until it does so. It will be more interesting to see what he says and does after that happens, if it happens.

    I can no longer believe he is that stupid. It's the big lie in action really. Do something so outrageous that people's desire to suspend disbelief kicks in and they say he CAN'T be that stupid... but he's doing it so he must be and then dismiss it.

    I think it's calculated and part of his plan to change this nation into some horrible stateist nightmare with him at top. To me, nothing else makes sense and it's horrible to even consider... but really, could someone that fucking stupid have been elected if he WAS that fucking stupid? Nope. I don't buy it.

    This is just another example of this man's arrogance. He thinks the people will fall for anything he says. The Emperor is wearing no clothes.
