    This is probably an indication on how the court voted Friday since I’m sure his plant reported back to him how it went down.

    Obama is a street thug Communist agitator, this is how he rolls.

    I saw a nice bumper sticker the other day:

    Did you vote for Obama?
    Thanks a lot Azzhole.

    It's only an initial vote. The senior justice for the majority gets to appoint the writer of the opinion and I think it works the same way for the minority. In the meantime, opinions may change both before and after the first drafts of the opinions are issued.
    In many cases, there are separate dissents or concurrences especially in cases of this magnitude. It is a deliberate, time consuming process by design, as it should be.

    Yes, after seeing the other opinions and viewpoints. As muzzledown said, that's how it should be, IMO.

    Doc,
    I am no fan of Obama, but you just can't refer to a black man as boy and expect people to hear anything else you're saying.

    The Taranto Principle..........

    ".... This may be the first-ever (if unwitting) presidential acknowledgment of the Taranto Principle, which holds that the liberal media work against the interests of liberal politicians by misleading them into thinking that "everybody" (or "all thinking people") sees the world the way they do. The principle was very much in evidence in the commentary late last week about the left's shocked reaction to the Supreme Court's taking the arguments against ObamaCare seriously......."

    The Supreme Court is famous for its ability to prevent leaks of any kind to anybody for any reason. Obama in all probability does not have a "plant" in the SCOTUS nor do any of the Congressional leaders. The Justices are keenly aware that their status in the eyes of the American people would be severely compromised if not destroyed if they became enmeshed in the politics of issuing leaks or even allowing leaks."

    As for the statement: "Obama is a street thug Communist agitator", this is pure nonsense and hyperbole.

    As several of TOM's characters have opined, it's time to "Lock and Load!"

    We're not quite to the point of "Fix Bayonets!"

    The way things are going, however, it could well be soon...

    The "New" South will be made-up of people who revere the U.S. Constitution, and will no longer brook the nonsense of the mentally diseased Liberals... The South, fighting tyranny since 1861...

    OA, out...

    Well--of course it's hyperbole. People have a tendency to do that when there is a history of bullying and threats. The insult-to-injury keeps piling up. Remember when Obama rebuked the Supreme Court during the State of the Union last year? That was outrageous. Now he's chiding them again with a tone that is almost like a warning. Could it be perceived as a threat to the Court? Not that he has any power to do so, but he sure talks tough.

    The more outrageous Obama's behavior gets, the more you can expect to see hyperbole among the American people. I am seeing it among my rank-and-file friends, neighbors and colleagues.

    Quote: Obama warns 'unelected' Supreme Court against striking down health law

    WHAT A SCUMBAG! He is so arrogant to think that his opinion supersedes the Supreme Court. For a "Constitutional expert" he doesn't seem to know squat about the Constitution. . .

    Running to the courts to overturn laws is the favorite past-time of liberals. But now when it's their fat in the fire, it becomes judicial activism. :steamed: What a two-faced SOB. .

    Here in WA state we have had several voter passed laws overturned by liberal judges because of lawsuits sponsored by lib groups.

    Statements like this from him makes me think that their "inside info" from the court is not looking good for them. Smells like panic.

    I'd say he's panicking over his legacy going up in flames.

    The sc has no status in the eyes of America. From warren forward, the sc has degraded itself. The appointments made by Bush to some degree redeemed the sc. The squatter's two political hacks were of course to be expected... fully in line with his own non-existant understanding of the Constitution.

    The squatter a "street thug Communist agitator?" Brilliantly blunt and precisely on target.
