    Obama is shamelessly trying to intimidate Justice Roberts into upholding Obamacare. This is the second time Obama has shown disdain for SCOTUS. I hope the judges stick to the constitution and refuse to cowtow to the bullies in Washington who only care about their own power and careers.

    What sort of power do you think that Obama has over the court, that he can "bully" them?

    This is the most baffling sort of nonsense that you guys come up with. You guys talk about how much you hate political correctness, but flip a shit any time Obama says something mean about someone you like.

    There's nothing unprecedented about Obama stating he disagrees with the Court. It's not "bullying", it's rhetoric.

    And yet it's good politics and that's all that matters.

    Nonsense.

    For the right the ACA is about politics, not the law or Constitution.

    Obama is the one acting like the power of SCOTUS is nothing compared to his. He shows a tremendous lack of respect for anyone who disagrees with him. In this case, the justices have yet to tell us their decision, but considering the questions they asked, it may not bode well for Obama's unconstitutional individual mandate. I sense they are getting nervous and they are lashing out as if SCOTUS is out of line to disagree with them.

    It's simple really. Nothing in the constitution gives government the authority to force participation in commerce by mandating that we all purchase something from a third party. It's not there and they have no legal leg to stand on.

    I think the message is clear from Obama that Roberts will be targeted and they will make life difficult for him if he follows the law.

    How is he "acting" like this? ("talking" isn't "acting")
    How has Obama "shown a tremendous lack of respect" for Roberts, or the court?
    If the Supreme Court strikes the mandate down, then that's what'll happen. I don't understand what's so controversial about Obama defending the bill he pushed.
    And what else does your crystal ball make you "sense", oh great swami?

    Neither you nor I are Constitutional Scholars, and neither of our opinions matter in the slightest bit.

    What decoder ring allowed you to find that secret "message"?
