UPDATE: OBAMA HAS PICKED A FIGHT WITH THE "WRONG" GANG NOW. 5TH CIRCUIT COURT JUDGE GIVES HIGH NOON TUESDAY DEADLINE!!! http://www.lsnewsgroup.com/2012/04/03/5th-circuit-court-of-appeals-fires-back-at-obama-doj-must-respond/
President Barack Obama recently issued an unmistakable, in-your-face, "I-double-dog-dare-you" threat to members of the United States Supreme Court regarding his signature legislation: ObamaCare.
In an unprecedented move––straight from the Godfather Don Corleone mafia-family playbook––Obama told these "unelected" Justices during a recent press avail and in front of the whole nation, mind you... that they better not even think about overturning his Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act if they know what's good for them.
[…] for years what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly-constituted and passed law. Well, this is a good example, and I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step. [President Barack Obama]
Now that is high-noon, OK Corral, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday trash talkin' if I ever heard any! As a matter of record... those are definitely street fightin' words where I come from, Mr. President.
So, here is question on the lips of most Americans living in the heartland of this great country:
What now.... since the once-constitutional-adjunct-professor-turned-sitting-President has officially put all those members of the SCOTUS on "front-street" and reduced them to mere court jester-status in front of out-of-town company, i.e. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon?
Well... will Judges Scalia, Roberts, Alito, et. al. have the guts to overturn this controversial law and show the citizens of America that they can't be bullied? Or ... will they too become like the complicit, main-stream media lapdogs and back-down––allowing the 'final nail' to be driven into the coffin of a nation that was once-ruled by the people... of the people... and for the people?
Not to be trite in anyway... but "the jury is out" on this one boys and girls! We will have to wait and see.
