    If the Supreme Court strikes down portions or all of Obamacare, will Obama shift his reelection campaign to wage war against the Supreme Court, in particular Justice Kennedy?

    He'll just ignore the law, as he does with so many others.

    He'll sign an executive order that same day that will overrule the Supreme Court.

    His presidential legacy is the national healthcare bill, and he's not going to give it up without a fight.

    Only the bastardization of the COTUS by Mabury vs. Madison now allows the sc to pretend that it has the power to decide the constitutionality of this or any act of congress. Jefferson rightly understood the outrageous implications of such overreach by the sc. Now it is a proven fact. The congress and even this squatter should tell the sc that they appreciate whatever suggestions the sc wants to offer, but that they will not pay any attention to the sc as though it were the royal house of the U.S. Let those old men and women spit and sputter all they want. Ignore them just like Jackson ignored marshall. Good move on his part.

    I think you'll need to wait til Thursday afternoon before people decide if they agree with you or not.

    Come Thursday, the SC will either be the greatest thing since sliced bread or it'll be a bunch of unelected communist tyrants.

    respect for the law is something the current admin does not have.

    i believe that only part of the coerced health care tax will be struck down, letting both sides claim a victory.

    If the squatter is smart, he'll defy the sc, i.e., regardless of what they say, he should tell them to get a nap and that they are without any constitutional authority to review any law written by congress including the healthcare act. That would embolden his supporters. Of course it would also really bring his opponents out of the woodwork... perhaps all the way to the ballot box! Cool.

    Of course that is the reason he will not defy the sc. He is not going to do anything that will help solidify opposition to his getting another four years to advance his agenda of destruction to America. Still, it would be a real hoot to see him do it... and to see the people who would all of a sudden not find it difficult at all to vote against him!

    He can "wage war" all he wants against the Supremes but he can't do anything except pick a replacement if one retires, and hopefully BHO will be gone by then.

    Unless it's a unanimous decision, it will still be a little of both.

    Huh?:upeyes:

    What do you think the supreme court's purpose is, then, if not deciding the constitutionality of government laws and actions?

    Should Present obama win or steal a 2nd term, and the Dems get both houses of Congress, he could try for a Congressional Act that would authorize him to pack the expanded court with cronies. It would then look much more like a Looney Tunes lineup.

    I'm pretty sure what you've stated is not actually correct. Mabury vs. Madison is considered by many the first example of judicial review by the SCOTUS, but the founders clearly made reference to judicial review while crafting the constitution and in the Federalist Papers. They stated, among other things to the same effect, that federal judges could declare an unconstitutional law null and void (words to that effect). In general, the members of the constitutional convention felt that the power of the federal court to declare laws unconstitutional, thereby null and void, was important to separation of powers. Makes sense if you think about it. It reels in the legislative branch. Also, there is no indication that any state delegates during the ratification process for the COTUS felt that the federal judges would not have the power of judicial review.

    So, the Mabury vs. Madison decision clearly did not bastardize the original inteny of the COTUS. Just sayin...
