The President is quoted as saying “Ultimately I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”
What he was talking about in a recent fundraiser is the potential Supreme Court decision, due out later this month, that could invalidate part or all of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
But can this so-called Constitutional expert really expect to have things both ways? Sure!
His administration has taken an unprecedented, extraordinary step in declining to defend DOMA in Federal Court. It is a law, Constitutionally passed in 1996 “by large majorities and signed into law by the last Democrat President to have sex in the White House, even though it was not with the First Lady!
With his presumptive reelection hanging in the balance, President Obama is “confident that the Supreme Court will” in fact “take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress“—just not HIS law!
Mr Obama, you cannot have it both ways!!!
