    The simple minded “majority” are the ones who should be in the corner.

    I agree, since judging by the last election the majority seems to sadly be the liberals. The Obamanation being a dunce, however, is certainly no secret, as he broadcasts it through his words and actions every chance he gets.

    - Roberts has a weak heart, and Scalia is getting old; another reason to elect President Hillary and her appointment power.

    Clarence Thomas writes an opinion concurring with that of constitutional scholar Scalia: “Yeah. What he said.”

    Before y’all go off on the 5-4 simple majority bit, please realize that there have been an unprecedented number of 9-0 rulings against Obama.
    The Recess appointment ruling, for example: 9-0.

    Funny thing about the Recess Appointment ruling…
    The Senate amended their rules so that Appointments can’t be filibustered, eliminating the NEED to bypass them to get somebody, ANYBODY, into the empty position.

    And all the SC actually said was that despite the fact that none of the CongressCritters were showing up to work, they weren’t OFFICIALLY on a recess.

    Bush, jr also made recess appointments, but the Supreme Court never complained.


    It’s been pointed out that, when Bush, jr proposed things most Democrats’ constituents wouldn’t like, they let the Republican majority vote them through instead of raising a filibuster, SAYING they wanted to let Democracy rule. (But really, they must have wanted the Republican proposals to pass, while wanting to cover sensitive parts of their own anatomy from their constituents’ wrath).

    Oh, No! Obama is embarrassed again in Lisa Land, this time while trying to uphold the separation of Church and State! When WILL Obama ever learn that the Five Catholic Supremes trump his poor, traditional understanding of the Constitution? Absurd! How CAN he be so boldly impartial?

    In its glorious past, the SCOTUS has reversed itself on several occasions. Even they admit to making occasional errors in judgement.

    “Roberts has a weak heart, and Scalia is getting old; another reason to elect President Hillary and her appointment power.”

    Better yet, the Democrats could try running someone I’d be remotely tempted to vote for. As long as there’s a liberal 3rd party candidate, I will never vote for Hillary.

    For those of you inclined to complain that the SCOTUS is partisan. I encourage you to listen to Supreme Podcast which gives an in-depth review of their decisions. I don’t always agree with their decisions but I have developed a comfort with their process and the framework under which they render decisions.

    I agree with some of the Posters above that several 9-0 decisions dispel the idea that they are just playing politics.

    Obama claims to be a Constitutional Scholar and his supporters are quick to remind us of that fact. That doesn’t make him King or Dictator. It means he should have a good understanding of how the Constitution is interpreted by the SCOTUS and be able to craft approaches that are within the markers laid out.

    @Nebulous – Because nobody brought it to the Supreme Court’s attention.

    Perhaps you don’t understand how this works. When government acts in a way that makes people feel that their rights have been violated – It is upon THEM to take it to court and it must work it’s way through District and Appeals courts before it reaches the Supreme Court (Under most circumstances).

    The Supreme Court doesn’t go looking for problems to address – The problems come to them.

    Had the Democrats felt that their rights had been trod upon they could have very easily brought it to court.

    But usually, Democrats like the decisions made by government because it gives them more control over peoples lives and not less (Very seldom does any branch of the Government limit itself – only the Courts do that).
